  • He Built an Underground House for $50

    As someone who lived for more than three decades in an underground house he designed and built for $50 and then later expanded for $500, Mike Oehler has a mission.

    Now in his 70s, Oehler wants to convince other people of the advantages of living underground. In an interview with video journalist Kirsten Dirksen, Oehler shared his passion for underground living as he showed her around the homes he has built in Northern Idaho.

    Mostly walking barefoot, which he called a lifelong habit, Oehler revealed the aboveground home he first built in 1968 after purchasing his property as a young San Franciscan involved in the back-to-the-land movement. After spending his first winter “freezing to death” in a cabin in the woods, however, he decided to use the earth as insulation.

    In creating his first attempts, he fell into some of the mistakes others often make in designing an underground home — most of them centering on not having enough windows or with using basement types of windows only.

    “An underground home has no more in common with a basement than a penthouse apartment has with a dark, dusty attic,” Oehler stressed. Explaining that an underground house can have many windows, he proved his point by showing Dirksen the many creative ways he incorporated patchworks of mostly used windows in his homes.

    Be Prepared … With A Pocket-Sized Solar Generator!

    ‘We want a house that has windows on all four sides,” he explained. “Not everywhere on all four sides but enough so that each room has light coming in from two directions. That is very important.”

    As he learned more and more about what worked and what doesn’t work in underground home design, Oehler began to find his own comfort zone. He called his inexpensive low-tech approach to building “PSP” for post/shoring/polyethylene, and he is particularly proud of what he calls his “uphill patio.” The uphill patio is a terraced space that allows for light, gardening space, outdoor grilling and water run-off.

    Throughout the interview, Oehler mentioned the many advantages of living in an underground home, or what he prefers to call an earth-insulated home. Among the benefits:

    Less property tax.

    Warm in winter and cool in summer.

    Serves as fall-out shelter with radiation protection.

    No foundation needed.

    Low maintenance.

    Sound proof.

    Increased growing space.


    Environmentally sound.

    Weather resistant

    Probably the most striking thing about Oehler’s designs is that they do not have the feeling of being underground. In fact, largely because of their use of natural light, the homes seem traditional from certain perspectives.

    “With an earth-integrated house, you are working with the earth, not overwhelming it,” Oehler said, adding that some Native American tribes saw the advantages of living underground centuries ago.

    He finds home sites “by instinct.”

    “I will sleep at the site for a while to get a feel for the space,” he said. Although he cannot do the construction of the homes he designs any longer due to health reasons, Oehler said his home sites are all hand dug. He enjoys digging and finds it to be good exercise.

    One downside of his underground home in Northern Idaho? It is attractive to bears. Oehler has had more than one very close encounter with a bear who thought Oehler’s abode looked appealing.

    Although Oehler thinks the soil in Northern Idaho – with its mixture of sand, silt and clay — is ideally suited to underground homes, he said you can build an underground home anywhere.

    Stealth Camping is the act of secretly camping in a public or private area and then leaving without being detected. Used by commandos on secret missions, it has become popular with civilians who dare try it. Stealth camping often has less environmental impact than traditional campground camping. It goes beyond Leave No Trace: BE NO TRACE. You become invisible to humans and wildlife. Stealth camping does not necessarily mean illegal camping.

    This video covers:

    - Transportation

    - Preparation

    - Blending in

    - Insertion and Extraction

    - How to be Invisible and Silent

    - Types of Shelters

    - Food and Fire

    - Footprints

    - Infrared Detection and Game Cameras

    - Advice from Experienced Stealth Campers

    Care of tactical clothing: Hand wash in Tech Wash, which has no whiteners/brighteners The use of normal detergents will make you light up like a light bulb because it has whiteners/brighteners

    Walking through water - If you are going to lose your scent in water because you are being followed, or maybe you just trying to move much more stealthily, insert your boot toe first into the water, then insert your second boot toe first into the water. Now instead of just splashing through the water, you glide- pick up your feet only enough to move forward slowly and deliberately, but never breaking the surface of the water with your boot. This allows one to move through a creek near heavy cover of the bank with complete silence.

    A Day Called X is a dramatized Civil Defense documentary set in Portland, Oregon ("roughly the size of Hiroshima"), in which the entire city is evacuated in anticipation of a nuclear air raid, after Soviet bombers had been detected by radar stations to the north. The film opens with an overhead shot of then-mayor Terry Schrunk striding purposefully into the old underground Kelly Butte Civil Defense Center?a bunker-like structure built into a hillside. The film details the activation of the city's civil defense protocols and leads up to the moment before the attack (the ending is left intentionally unknown). The operations were run from the Kelly Butte Bunker, which was the EOC during the time. It was filmed in September 1957 and shown in December of that year. Apart from presenter/narrator Glenn Ford, none of the people shown are actors. They are locals of Portland shown in their real jobs, including Schrunk.

    The film was produced by CBS Public Affairs in conjunction with the Federal Civil Defense Administration.

    On September 27, 1955, Portland actually conducted an exercise evacuation of downtown called "Operation Greenlight", and the film is often misattributed to that year. Ford's narration, however, does make direct reference to the 1955 exercise.

    This print of the film came out of the estate of filmmaker Harry Rasky, and is one of the best we've seen. Rasky was born in Toronto into a Jewish family, where he completed studies at University College. He participated in CBC Television's first four years writing and producing CBC Newsmagazine (1952-1955). He also produced a documentary for the 1961 debut evening of CTV Television Network. He earned more than 200 awards during his career in which his films numbered more than 400.

    The tensions with Russia and the United States are getting severe. Most media is remaining completely silent. Most people are uninformed. The Café looks at this as a primary need for information to protect you. If you are in the kill zone, there is nothing to worry about. You will die quickly and disappear completely. The first effect is the light. It will blind you instantly. That is the primary reason to duck and cover. Getting protection from the other effects are next. The last thing you want to be is injured. This will give you a chance. We no longer have air raid sirens. The are no public shelters. You'll just have to get to the safest underground you can. You must be prepared for a week until the worst radiation passes. These techniques could save you from serious injury and worse blindness.

    The One-Rifle Rifle: Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle Review

    by G&A Staff | December 24th, 2011

    Back in 1984, Col. Jeff Cooper wrote an article for Gun Digest titled “The Scout Rifle Idea.” Basically, Cooper said that the perfect general-purpose rifle, “if you could own only one,” was a short, light .308 bolt action equipped with a barrel-mounted long-eye-relief, low-magnification scope for quick, both-eyes-open aiming.

    He also laid out a full set of other specs involving loading, magazine design, accuracy requirements and handling characteristics. Shooters and rifle manufacturers have been arguing about these ideas ever since, and Cooper’s name has become synonymous with the concept.

    For years, Cooper consulted with various manufacturers about commercial production of his brainchild. Several companies have since offered their own “Scout Rifle” designs (notably Steyr and Savage), plus “semi-Scouts” such as the now-discontinued Ruger M77 Frontier.

    But now, more than a quarter century after the genesis of the original idea, Ruger has introduced its own formal rendition. It’s called the Gunsite Scout Rifle, in honor of the Arizona training facility Cooper founded in 1979. While the GSR is not an exact manifestation of every feature Cooper called for, it’s about as close as anyone has come.


    The Ruger GSR is a new platform in the M77 family, featuring standard Mauser 98-derived features such as controlled round feed, Mauser-type claw extractor, a receiver-mounted fixed blade ejector and a receiver-mounted, three-position safety, but with a 10-round detachable box magazine. The GSR also has the recently developed Ruger LC6 trigger, which—thanks to its improved internal geometry—has a cleaner let-off than the previous M77 trigger.

    Continuing M77 features include a flat-sided, flat-bottomed receiver with a forward-angling front bedding screw secured to the receiver’s integral recoil lug, integral receiver top mounts for the supplied Ruger rings and a one-piece stainless steel bolt and handle. You can get that bolt handle on either side; the GSR is available both in right- and left-hand versions.

    The GSR’s 16½-inch medium-contour, cold-hammer-forged barrel has a Mini-14 protected post front sight, paired with a receiver-mounted, adjustable ghost-ring rear. A six-inch barrel-mounted Picatinny rail offers a variety of optics options—including long-eye-relief Scout scopes available from a variety of manufacturers, as well as nonmagnifying electronic and reflex sights. The Mini-14/SR-556-type flash suppressor brings the overall barrel length to 19 inches, but helps reduce the .308’s muzzle flash from the relatively short barrel. The 5/8-24 muzzle threads also allow removal of the flash suppressor in case you don’t want anything hanging out there.

    The matte-black oxide hammer-forged 4140 steel barrel and investment-cast 4140 steel receiver sit in a weather resistant black/gray laminate stock with conventional front and rear QD sling swivel studs and a cut-checkered grip and forearm. “Gunsite Scout Rifle” is laser-engraved on the grip cap to note Ruger’s design collaboration with the staff of Gunsite Academy.

    The stock is designed with a minimal .31-inch difference between the drop at comb and heel, to facilitate the square-behind-the-rifle firing stance Cooper favored and Gunsite teaches. The stock also features a one-inch soft rubber recoil pad, with three half-inch spacers that allow the length of pull to be adjusted from 121/2 to 141/4 inches for individual requirements or to provide proper fit with outerwear or defensive gear.

    The GSR’s magazine well and triggerguard are fiberglass-reinforced nylon. The magazine release is a push-forward Mini-14 type “quick drop” paddle just ahead of the triggerguard. Each GSR comes equipped with one 10-round magazine, and five-round accessory magazines are also available.

    The Accuracy International tapered stagger-feed magazines require cartridges to be loaded by pushing them down against the follower, then backward under the feed lips, rather than snapping them down directly from above. This means they are therefore guided forward under the magazine lips during the bolt stroke, so the controlled-round Mauser-type bolt actually functions as a push-feed during most of its travel. This results in a notably different feel to the feeding cycle than with other M77s, and it might take some getting used to (at least until Ruger perfects its own proprietary polymer magazines).


    The GSR actually only took about one year to put together from Ruger’s “let’s do it” moment until the product launch in December 2010. After planning meetings in Arizona between Ruger and Gunsite personnel, Ruger’s New Hampshire plant kicked into gear.

    Veteran Ruger engineer Roy Melcher was given creative oversight for the project. The GSR would be his final accomplishment prior to his death in December, 2010. Ruger Product Manager Mark Gurney says that Melcher was the one who mandated that the GSR have only a 16.5-inch barrel (Cooper’s original template called for a minimum 18-inch tube). “Roy was a curmudgeon,” remembers Gurney. So when others were suggesting 18 inches, Melcher simply said, “No! It’s got to be 16½ inches. The Frontier has a 16½-inch barrel and it handles beautifully.” So 16½ inches it was.

    From the moment the GSR premiered, it has generated a lot of comment from Cooper purists taking Ruger to task for violating one or another of the late Colonel’s original precepts. “The GRS isn’t really a controlled feed mechanism and can’t be loaded from the top” (the magazine lip issue). “The rear sight isn’t really a ghost ring” (the ring is too thick and the aperture too small). “It weighs too much” (Cooper really wanted it to be no more than 6.5 lbs). “There’s only one sling swivel stud on the fore-end” (Cooper’s recommended Ching Sling can’t be installed). “There doesn’t need to be a flash suppressor” (Cooper’s doctrine was for a military “scout” to shoot once and immediately move to a different location). And, of course, “The barrel’s too short!”

    Well, I stand with Melcher on that last one. In his original writings on the idea of a .308 Scout, Cooper observed that 2,700 fps for a 155-grain from an 18½-inch barrel duplicates the ballistics of the original .30-06 load from a 24-inch barrel, which “sufficed very well for Theodore Roosevelt and Stewart Edward White in Africa.” Today’s factory loads with advanced propellants equal or exceed that with 16½-inch barrels. When it comes to a Scout Rifle, I think shorter is better—particularly if you’re going to hang a flash suppressor on the end of it.

    According to Gurney, “We believe the Ruger GSR is a credible rendition according to Cooper’s concepts. We didn’t try to blindly follow any strict recipe, because Cooper didn’t have a strict recipe. He had guidelines; guidelines based upon an ideal, and Ruger and Gunsite have together followed those ideals as best we could while keeping costs and development time reasonable.”

    Personally, I’m not so much interested in how closely the GSR adheres to the Cooper’s precise specifications as I am in how well it shoots, functions, and handles. It does all of these things extremely well. Particularly the shooting.
