I see that the welding gloves have come off.




If you're not making a coal fire to blacksmith, you have a vagina.  This is Appalachia, son.  A thousand bearded men with rock-hard forearms just rolled over in their graves. 


But you can use gas, I guess.  In a pinch.  If you have to shoe a mule like right-fuckin-now.

But coal is just so awesome manly.  Think about it, you got a big brick hearth, all the tongs and shit.  Brick, coal, anvil.  Awesome.

Gas.  I donno, its just not right.

Might?

I doubt keeping the pipelines running would be possible.

Breathing in coal and getting nerve damage does not sound all that fun to me. I'll be a pussy and go with gas.

I doubt keeping the pipelines running would be possible.

They have safeguards built in for catastrophic situations.  The compressors run on nat gas, which in turn pull gas from the wells and pressurize the system.  Its almost like perpetual motion, except it burns energy to maintain itself.  The pressures go into "safe mode" for lack of a better term.  Six hundred pounds, or thereabouts, in the big interstate pipes. 

It is arguable whether the suppliers would terminate service.  The meters still run, you'll pay for it eventually.  The companies don't just cease to exist.  In a truly apocalyptic situation, they'd eventually valve-off to protect the wealth of the resource and keep it in the ground.  In a skirmish, probably not.  There are certain rules to interruption of service, and certain places which require service, like hospitals and military bases.  They have their own bunker fuel to fall back on, but its probable that you'd see the gas remain online to facilitate a societal structure - although they could valve-off individual blocks that don't have important installations existing within its realm.  If you were lucky enough to live near a place of such importance, you'd probably have gas.

Doesn't the gas have to be filtered at some point in the distribution process for hydrogen sulfide? I'm sure that would break down first.

Yeah, there are numerous filters throughout the distribution process.  They last a while.  In my experience, a filter can run between six months to a year before its causing problems.  If the filter is very near a compressor station or a regassification facility (where they turn LNG back into NG) it can get fucked up early. 

Without the filters, condensate builds up in the lines and causes accumulation of heavies.  Low spots in the lines will form puddles of distillate, sorta like too much cholesterol.  The puddles will blow into smaller facilities and cause problems.  They also trap welding slag, metal shavings, pigshit, dirt, etc.  (pigs are the things that scrape out the insides of pipes, like a snowplow).

I miss this thread.

Personally I miss Popcorn Sutton he was the last of breed of moonshiners and independent minded people in North Carolina.  It was a shame he killed himself rather than go to Federal Prison.  He also looked far older than his years.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marvin_Sutton

You should watch the entire documentary about the man called, "The Last One."
which is more of a how to movie for moonshine than a compelling story.

Popcorn Sutton's book is better.  http://www.amazon.com/Me-My-Likker-Popcorn-Sutton/dp/0970162804/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1237679728&sr=8-6
  It is uncensored and out there.
