  • 720 gallons a day! We use about 20 gallons/day between the 2 of us. That’s an outhouse and a solar shower every couple days. Guess I should have “stepped it up” during that 5 year historic drought and lived like a city slicker- killing the fish to death like everybody around me did! Babylon- that’s what you all worship, especially you fake rastas.

    • You must be an only child, to think of only yourself so quickly.
      just the two of you is the key.
      What about a family with two adults, five children, 2 dogs and a cat, seven chickens, three ducks, a horse, vegetable garden, 80 pot plants and two trimmers?

      Yeah…I can streatch 20 gallons of water…
      just give me a thimble,plastic grocery bag, apple core, wire hanger and some duct tape and bam boom bling blam ….Ta Da!

      What a tool…

      We live in humboldt for the fresh air, clean sourced water and amazing communties where children thrive ect. Get a clue “farce”.
