Tuesday July 5 - Day 65: Spent a few hours on ammunition administration. Replaced most of the
.223 HP (hollow point) rounds with SP rounds. According to my research; HP rounds for .223 tend,
80-90% of the time, to not mushroom as intended, which defeats much of their purpose. SP (soft
point) on the other hand, at least for the .223 caliber, are more suitable for the purpose of inflicting
maximum damage to vermin. I did other practical tasks this day including colouring some of my
equipment black with permanent markers of various sizes. Emptied the armour case. Lol, I forgot I
had put a batch of DBOL, winstrol and ECA stack in the case:-). Nice, now I don't have to make
more ECA stack tabs from scratch.
I realize that If I am apprehended with all this equipment I will have serious problems trying to
explain its intended usage...
Wednesday July 6 - Day 66: Changed the tertiary charge setup, and planned the last
manufacturing phase accordingly in regards to ANALFO mixing. I will be creating 19 x 50kg bags
containing 43kg of ANFO, 6,45kg of AL (15%) and 1,2kg of micro balloons (2,7%). After that I will
create 13 x 50kg bags containing 46kg of ANFO, 2,3kg of AL (5%) and 1,2kg of MB (2-3%). Re-
located most of the ANFO from the spider cave to the processing bench.
Thursday July 7 - Day 67: Re-distributed the micro balloons from the 16kg bags into 13
individual plastic bags each containing 1,2kg. Prepared 35 such bags - equivalent to 2,5% of the
50kg fertilizer bags. Started to do the same with the aluminium powder, re-distributing them from
the 36kg metal drums to individual plastic bags each containing 6kg. Finished 6 such bags, but
after further consideration I will use 5kg instead of 6. I realize now that many of the warnings
concerning aluminum powder is nothing more than scare mongering, probably to limit the legal
liability of the producer. It is much safer to handle than people might expect, even in the micro fine
400 mesh (63 microns) powder I have. I have generated multiple clouds of aluminium and nothing
has gone wrong. Just be very careful and you'll be fine.
As I was working on weighing the microballoons on my gram weight, using my 3M full face mask, I
noticed an itch on my nose. That's when I saw a large black beetle on the inside of the mask...FFS.
Freaked me out. I usually check for insects every time I wear gloves or the mask, but I must have
missed it this time.
The neighbour is still harvesting my field outside. He originally told me it would only take 6 hours
total but it's the third day now... As long as he is lurking around on my property he is going to slow
me down significantly as I have to take extra security precautions. Not to mention I have to delay
the nitro methane evaporation outside until he's done. I could probably have done it inside, but
considering the fact that methane forms potentially explosive/flammable vapours I'm not readily
keen on evaporating the RC fuel inside.
Friday July 8 - Day 68: I opened the remaining two aluminium drums and re-distributed the
content in plastic bags (regular shopping bags). I then completed to weigh the content of the bags
on a gram weight resulting in 18 bags a 5kg (10-12%), 10 bags a 2,35kg (5-6%) and finally two
bags a 6,5 kg for the inner drum charge.
Saturday July 9 - Day 69: I started mixing the ANFO with the micro balloons and the aluminium
powder. I completed 2 bags a 50kg. It was very labour intensive, much more than I imagined as I
had to first open the ANFO bags, then distribute 12,5kg of the content into a plastic 50L masonry
bucket. I then poured the content into a plastic 100L masonry bucket. As much of the ANFO was
packed into hard lumps I had to crush them with a rubber hammer. I then started to crush the
smaller lumps with my hands until the ANFO was powdered. I then poured 25% of the micro
balloon bag inside the bucket and mixed it (it will create clouds of micro balloon dust as you mix
it), following by doing the same with the aluminium powder. Clouds of aluminum powder will be
generated and the whole area will be covered in AL dust including your clothing, your hair, and
every item you might have in a 5m radius. This is problematic as you end up spread AL dust
everywhere as you walk around. I ended up assigning "mixing clothing and shoes" which I took off
every time I left the room. It's the only thing you can do to prevent spreading it somewhat but you
will still get stained by AL. I considered using a hazmat suit or my different kind of lightweight dust
suit but the problem is that it gets too hot when combined with intensive labour like mixing.
As the ANALFO mix was complete I then poured the mix into an empty 50kg fertilizer bag. This
took 30 minutes so processing a full 50kg bag of ANFO creating ANALFO took 2 hours. After I had
prepared 2,5 bags of ANALFO I was exhausted and decided to take a break. Mixing ANALFO is very
messy and its especially annoying that you get aluminium dust everywhere.
Later that day while I was enjoying a meal, the neighbour stopped by. As I had just completed the
mixing session I still had AL stains in my face and powder in my hair. I tried the best I could to
quickly wash it off but my hair still had a silver tone and it looked very weird. The neighbour asked
if he could fertilize my fields and remove some rocks as this would increase the yield of animal
fodder by 100% (the current crop). As this meant that he would get several people to work on my
property for a week's time I declined telling him that I had plans of my own.
Later that day, while I was watching an episode of True Blood, I saw a large van driving by the
house and parking next to my car. There was at least 4 people inside. Nice, I thought; it's probably
a SWAT team coming to skull-fuck me. The farmer must have tipped them off... Thank God, it was
only 4 Polacks looking for worked and I sent them on their way. It would have been tempting to
hire them to mix my ANALFO...<3, hadn't it been for the fact that they would have understood
what was up:-)
Later that evening I put a large plastic container box with 8L of 30% nitro methane/18% oil/52%
methanol outside to test the evaporation method. Theoretically; the methanol should evaporate
before the nitromethane starts to evaporate. As such; you just let the mix evaporate down from 8L
to aproximately 4L. This should leave you with aprox 60% nitro and 36% oil which is, according to
my sources, 100% more efficient as an oxidizer as diesel when mixed with ANFO or ANALFO.
According to my source; 25-40% nitro is as efficient as diesel, so anything higher purity is better.
Sunday July 10 - Day 70: I mixed one more bag of ANALFO manually. There must be a better
way than this... One single bag in 2 hours!? I will try to use my electrical concrete mixer instead. I
bought it second hand for 150 euro. I am just very worried about three things when using a
concrete mixer; the friction caused by the electrical stirrer, ANALFO/ANFO/AL in direct contact with
metal, a spark from the electrical system. As these three factors can cause a detonation, I will keep
my glock 34 close by in case I somehow survive an explosion... I feel I don't have a choice as
mixing manually is just too fatiguing and time consuming. I need a method that allows me to mix
at least 1 x 50kg bag every hour or faster. In any case; let me die another day...
The use of my electrical concrete mixer to blend the ANALFO went without much complication. As
usual, I worry too much about safety...<3 I poured in 46kg of ANFO and activated the mixer. The
large and small lumps would not be crushed so I had to crush them with my hands manually. I
then went on to mixing in the 1,2 kg of micro balloons and the 5kg of aluminium powder (400
mesh/63 microns, leafed). It generated significant AL dust clouds and it didn't mix optimally.
However, I was able to complete one bag of ANALFO in 90 minutes so I was able to improve my
blending per bag by 30 minutes compared to the manual method. Also, using the concrete mixer is
much less fatiguing. Perhaps with time, I will be able to reduce this to 60 minutes per bag. In any
case; it is hard work for one person and I am really beginning to understand why Mr. McVeigh
limited his manufacturing to 600kg. He probably encountered much of the issues I did and he
probably had to learn everything the hard way just as I have done.
My RC fuel (30% nitro methane, 18% oil, 52% methanol) has been allowed to evaporate for 26
hours now (average 20-25C daytime, 10-15C nighttime) and the mix has now reduced its mass by
50%, from 7,8 liters to 3,9 liters. I poured the liquid into a 4L container. I noticed that the
evaporation took considerable longer during the night. I'm a bit concerned regarding the
exothermic nature of methanol. Methanol absorbs moisture from the air and the water it absorbs
has the same evaporation temperature as nitro methane. I have been unable to research exactly
how much the absorption ratio is compared to the evaporation ratio as little information is found
online regarding this purification method. If my assumptions are grossly incorrect, and the
research I found was false, I will end up with an inert goo which will ruin the detonation
completely. If I'm right, however, the oxidizer I will end up with will be more than twice as powerful
than diesel and will reduce the need for a booster to detonate the ANFO/ANALFO. The inner charge
I will end up with will be 50kg of ANALNM (Ammonium Nitrate ALuminium Nitro Methane).
Regarding the purification of RC fuel; I did however find dozens of distillation methods from
advanced to less advanced but the problem is that you need a decent distillation rig and even if
you have the equipment, it is quite complicated and very dangerous to isolate the nitro methane
that way. According to my overall research regarding nitro methane purification the most
pragmatical approach, given my limited resources, is to just do an evaporation purification. I have
a total of 72 liters of RC fuel with an average nitro methane percentage of 28%.
In any case; I feel I've been really slacking the last week and I really need to step up the pace
now. At least now, everything is set so I don't have to research any more techniques and methods.
Monday July 11 - Day 71: Mixing 3 bags (alr done 4)
I reserved a rental car today, from AVIS, the same company I'm already renting my primary car
from. There was not enough credit on the card for a deposit so I had to go to the northern town
and transfer 2000 euro to it.
Considering the fact that I am currently working on the most dreadful task, I bought a lot of
exquisite food and candy today. I really need to recharge my batteries and increase my morale
before initiating the ANALFO mixing. Good food and candy is a central aspect of my reward system
which keeps me going. It has proven efficient so far. Occasionally, if I'm really not keen on doing a
specific sub task, I take a red bull, a shake of noXplode or an ECA stack - to get a jump start
before jumping into something I'm not looking forward to - f example extremely lame or labour
intensive tasks or tasks involving great risk of injury or death.
I continued to purify, through evaporation, the RC fuel today, pouring 32L into four different plastic
containers. I had marked the containers with a permanent marker for 2L, 4L and 8L which allows
me to see how many percent it has evaporated. I put one in the outhouse, to test whether inside
evap would be better, and three outside. I placed them all in the outhouse before I went to bed to
prevent the batches from being ruined in case of rain during the night. I noticed the batch I left in
the outhouse (at around 15C) had only evaporated by 1L, in comparison to the others (20-25C)
which had evaporated by 3L, which indicates that outside evap is preferable.
The mixing of AL powder and micro balloons with the ANFO is a truly dreadful task. Not only is it
extremely messy; it is very labour intensive as well, not to mention that you have to work using
the 3M gas mask. I hate this task. It's the most dreadful job I've encounter during the whole
operation... However, I've finally managed to find a good mixing routine for the ANALFO. Basically;
considering the fact that the whole process with mixing is extremely messy, I could not take any
smoking breaks or leave the work bench area at all. As soon as I initiate the mixing I literally turn
into the tin man..., with a layer of AL dust all over me. As it is really difficult to remove this dust
from the surfaces it touches, I end up smearing the stuff on my face (it gets on the inside of my
mask when it touches the rubber straps) and on my fingers etc. To keep an acceptable pace I am
therefore forced to work without a break for 5 hours (or until I complete 4 x 50kg bags). I've
managed to reduce the work needed to complete one bag from 1,5 hours to 1,2 hours. The most
time consuming aspect are all the ANFO lumps I have to crush manually with my fingers. The
electrical cement mixer is really helpful though, and not dangerous to use at all, and will reduce the
amount of time spent on each bag by 40 minutes (from 2 hours manually, to 1,2 hours with a
cement mixer). I realize this is a vulnerable phase though, as it will be hard to conceal AL dust and
hard to clean surfaces with AL smearing. Tuesday July 12 - Day 72: Evaporated RC fuel outside
and mixed 4 bags (200kg) of ANALFO.
Found a good method to determine nitromethane vs. methanol content:
The boiling point of methanol is aprox 63C while the BP of nitromethane is aprox 100C. However,
there is an even easier way to determine NM content. Just weigh it! Methanol is extremely light
and nitromethane extremely heavy.
Methanol = 800g per liter
Motor oil = 875g per liter (might be wrong)
Nitromethane = 1195g per liter
(Water = 1000g per liter)
A gallon of Methanol = 3,78L * 800 = 3024g
A gallon of Motor Oil = 3,78L * 875 = 3307,5g
A gallon of Nitromethane = 3,78L * 1195 = 4517g
(A gallon of water = 3,78L * 1000 = 3780g)
I added water just in case due to the exothermic nature of methanol (it absorbs water/moisture
from the air). In any case; it will now be easier to figure out which of my completed 8 batches of
purified RC fuel has the highest NM content, simply by using a gram weight.
Wednesday July 13 - Day 73: I cleaned my 3M gas mask today. It was full of AL
powder/smearing and the multifilter were full of AL dust. Unfortunately; these are my last
multifilters (particle and vapour filter combined) so I can't replace them. I do have a couple of sets
of particle filters but I believe they won't be of much use to filter the diesel fumes when mixing
Continued to evaporate RC fuel outside and mixed 2 bags of ANALFO. After mixing the second bag
I began to experience dizziness, blood pressure elevation and nausea, classical symptoms of
excessive short-term exposure of diesel. Diesel is a vicious substance as it is absorbed even
through most glove material. Nitrile gloves are best, neoprene somewhat good but vinyl gloves
provide little or no protection. At this point in time, the clothing I am using to mix ANALFO are
more or less soaked in diesel and I knew it was not healthy. But the problem is that using a hazmat
suit for mixing is problematic as it will be very hard to labour while wearing it. I have another
chemical suit that are more comfortable than the hazmat suit so I will try using that for the last
batch. Diesel poisoning isn't lethal, but will weaken your body over time. However, excessive
exposure over a long period of time can shut down your kidneys, which will obviously be lethal. To
somewhat counter all the crap I've been exposed to the last two months I'm using anti-toxin tabs
(herbal supplements strengthening the liver and kidneys), protein supplements, creatine and a
multitude of mineral/vitamin supplements.
Thursday July 14 - Day 74: I'm not feeling so hot today. I'm in a weakened state atm. most
likely due to diesel poisoning. It shouldn't take more than 24 hours before my immune system has
defeated the negative effects of this exposure. I hope I haven't been overexposed as it may lead to
acute kidney shutdown. Needless to say; I'm going to use my protective suit to mix the last 4 bags
today. Finished the last 4 bags. Using the protective suit (fertilizer sprayer suit, used by farmers)
proved to be better than expected, except the fact that I completely soaked my t-shirt and boxer
with sweat by the time I was done.
Planning a train trip to the capital tomorrow. I have to get up at around 06.00 tomorrow. Will do
some errands while I'm there including picking up a van from AVIS car rental company (carrying
Damn, I was hoping the last 4 batches of RC fuel would be finished before the trip tomorrow.
Total weight of ANALFO, 18 bags = 900kg + 50kg ANALNM (inner charge) + 130kg (1 person +
gear) + 80kg (mini MC) = 1160kg. The max carrying capacity of Volkswagen Crafter is 1340kg but
it's safer to leave a certain safety margin, just in case.
Friday July 15 - Day 75: I took the train to the capital today to pick up the car I had reserved.
Took a taxi from the train station to the car rental company. Came back to the farm late in the
Saturday July 16 - Day 76: Took a taxi to the train station in the northern town to pick up the
car. Did some errands and went back to the farm. Started removing the car rental sticker with the
rubber-eraser-drill-bit. I had bought 4 of these specialty drill erasers which are designed to remove
decor from cars. I used one and a half bit before I was done but there were significant traces left
on the car. I treated the surface with a spray on de-greasing chemical three times but there were
still some quite noticeable traces left. Will try a couple of more times tomorrow. Finished the last
evaporation-purification of the RC fuel.
Sunday July 17 - Day 77: Continued removing traces of the decor on the rental car. Washed
twice with acetone then another round of degreasing. There are still significant traces but at this
point I do not have time to take additional measures.
An unknown car drove in to the front yard today. As I went out to greet them I noticed it was just
two women who had taken a wrong turn.
The neighbour started collecting the animal-fodder-balls from the field today. His activities delayed
my work for several hours.
I weighed the 9 batches of purified RC fuel. I have a lot more than I need so I will just use two of
the best batches.
Weighing 1,8L in a 2L beaker on a gram weight:
Batches 1-4 were evaporated from: 25% nitro, 12% oil, 63% methanol from 7,8L to 3L
Batches 5-9 were evaporated from 30% nitro, 18% oil, 52% methanol, from 7,8L to 3,9L
All the batches have an unknown water content (exothermic properties of methanol ftl.)
Batch 1: 1759g
Batch 2: 1753g
Batch 3: 1738g
Batch 4: 1730g
Batch 5: 1786g
Batch 6: 1779g
Batch 7: 1784g
Batch 8: 1771g
Batch 9: 1770g
Weight tests were somewhat inconclusive so decided to do an additional fire test, taking 20ml
from the best batches and using a stop watch to see how long the flame burns.
Batch 1: 1,49 min
Batch 5: 1,53 min
Fire test proved somewhat inconclusive but my gut feeling tells me that I should go for batch 5 and
batch 7. It should be more than 50% nitromethane in the two batches.
Will create secondary detonator to be detonated from ANALFO, without booster in addition to the
detonator with booster from the ANALNM inner charges). Will add a delay fuse of +30 sec for the
secondary detonator. I feel this is the safest option if somehow the ANALNM mix proves to be a
Needless to say, I'm really not sure about the potency of the RC nitro oxidizer. My calculations
indicate that the nitro content can be as low as 30% but I cannot confirm this as my weight
estimate for the oil might be incorrect. In addition; I cannot verify the water content of the mix.
In any case; for the ANALNM material I will go for:
6L RC/nitro oxidizer
Total: 51,2kg of material
Monday July 18 - Day 78:
I completed the inner charge. However, the drum only had enough space for approximately 40kg of
ANALNM. I poured the finished product into 2 x double plastic bags, the inner bags of the 50kg
fertilizer bags. There were no problems at all mixing everything together in the concrete mixer.
However, since I only made one inner charge I wish I had purchased pure AN (98%) from ice packs
as it would be more potent than the 27-0-0 (85%ish) - farmer (C)AN.
Will have less time to update log from now on...
That night, after dark, I loaded in everything in the van. Still need to strap it properly in place
Exhausted!!! Good workout though. Im drinking 4 x protein shakes per day now to maximize
muscle generation. At this point in time I should be fearful, but I'm just too exhausted to think
much about it.
Placed PA to dry during the night.
Tuesday July 19 - Day 79:
Dried 1 out of 4 batches of PA/DDNP in the oven at 50-70 C. First batch took 9 hours, wtf!! This is
going to delay everything...
Created anti-friction/shock stuffing by cutting up a madras and placing it in three layers in a card
board box. I'll use these to transport the booster and detonators separate from the main cargo.
Started packing down gear, filled diesel/gasoline on cars and mini-MC. Tested mini-MC. Treaded a
fuse inside a surgical tube and tested it. There were 75 cm of fuse so it should burn for 75 seconds.
Due to the lack of oxygen in the tube it burnt in less than 2 sec!! Damn, I'm glad I checked this
beforehand... No surgical tube then...
Went to a higher quality restaurant in the southern town and feasted. Yummy! Ive been working
extremely hard the last few days and I'm completely exhausted. I have been using ECA stack to
help keep this pace. Looks like I will have to take one more today...
Currently drying batch 2 out of 4. Hopefully I will complete it before I go to bed.
Dry PA etc. Test PA.
Pack and load gear during day,
Go to sleep at 22.00
06.30 - drive 1 Small, there 10.00
train back (11.00), there 14.00, taxi, there 14.30
drive 2. (there 17.00)
Go to bed 18.30
Wednesday July 20 - Day 80: Wake up at 02.30. Start downloading movie at 02.30,
05.30 Eat + pack,
start seeding at 06.00. Done 08.30.
Thursday July 21 - Day 81: Drive 11 hours straight to Kautokeino, sort out cheap hotel
Friday July 22 - Day 82: Initiate blasting sequenses at pre-determined sites. Test dirt for gram of
gold per kg. Have enough material for at least 20 blasts. Start capitalization of project as soon as I
have results. Time is running out, liquidity squeese inc. Call/email all my investor contacts with
updated online prospectus/pdf.
This is going to be an all-or-nothing scenario. If I fail to generate acceptable precious metals yields,
in combination with swift initiation of the capitalization for securing the areas I will be heavily
indebted. I must complete capitalization of the mineral extraction project within August at latest!
When I have the required seed capital I will have enough funds to employ the services of
professional blasting engineers.
If all fails, I will initiate my career with a private security firm in conflict zones to acquire maximum
funds in the shortest period of time to repay the debts.
First coming costume party this autumn, dress up as a police officer. Arrive with insignias:-) Will be
awesome as people will be very astonished:-)
Side note; imagine if law enforcement would visit me the next days. They would probably get the
wrong idea and think I was a terrorist, lol :o)
Optimal time budget, one person - ANFO: 3 x 600kg, PA: 3 x 0,5kg, DDNP: 3 x 10g
If I had known then, what I know today, by following this guide, I would have managed to
complete the operation within 30 days instead of using almost 80 days. By following my guide,
anyone can create the foundation for a spectacular operation with only 1 person in less than a
month even if adding 2 "resting" days!:-)
Day 1: Moving and getting your equipment and gear into place.
Day 2: Installing all equipment - fume hood, fan etc.
