Hi James, First of all, chalk me up as another Patriots  fan. It truly is the definitive work on preparing for just about anything. When I found out that you had started the blog, I was ecstatic!
I found this site on wind power  today, and thought you might be interested. Scroll down about halfway and look for the section on home built wind power. They detail building an alternator from scratch, carving your own blades, and control circuitry. I don’t have a retreat or anything like it just yet (I’m stuck in the city with a 300-1000 mile bugout WTSHTF), but if I did [find a place] with good wind, I’d start looking here. Thanks again for all of the great information you’ve passed on through the years – Steve
