General Family Preparedness • MASSIVE untapped resource(s) here…

{DISCLAIMER….I’m a research FREAK…lol}

Please read below and also feel free to add your personal most recent(the web is always growing) BEST/FAVORITE resources here for a great thread that all can contribute to.

So, you know about Google, of course….

I am shocked how many people still look at me with blank faces when referencing Scholar….For some reason its just not put out there much.

I cant tell you the amount education that this has given me over the years….

The web is a labyrinth. It is an extremely valuable resource but there is just so much trash, opinion, sponsored links, fake news, etc., that you have to really work hard to find reliable information that is fact based…You almost have to have a degree just to be able to reliably navigate it and filter out the trash……Then I stumbled across Scholar about 5 years ago.

ANY time I have a health issue(Myself, friends/family), need to research findings, have a scientific hobby I want to learn more on, etc., I go here…..

It will be clunky at first while learning to navigate it, may be overwhelming to understand (or not…)with the terms used, but I cant tell you enough where it has taken me with a little practice….

Just as an example….I again found a diagnoses for a friend recently that their Dr. missed(So damn common in todays med system…Treat the symptom instead of finding the cure) and it reminded me of how if you’re not happy with the level of care you’re getting to reach out in finding answers instead of waiting for them and just have to pass this on here…Now after mentioning it at least there’s the right direction being taken for treatment…..this has happened 3 times now in this area alone since I learned about it……Of course rely on the experts first but this may help you to understand something more where they just drop the ball in explaining what to expect, complications of procedures, next treatment courses, etc…

That’s just the Med stuff….Like I said this will help you self-educate in SO many other areas….

Sometimes,(well, most of the time these days…lol) if you want something done right you need to do it yourself….

Please check it out….If this post only helps one person learn more, find an answer, etc., then it was worth my time to write. :thumbup:

Best wishes to you and yours,

Also avoid the ones that have more guns and ammo than sense. Listening to people around the room will help you find out who will be people that you might want to get to know better, but also might give you some insight on people to avoid.

^^^This is really good advice^^^ ……. The whole post actually, but especially the quote above.

I was horrible on OPSEC at my onset and will absolutely have issues if SHTF actually ever happens from my BIG FAT MOUTH trying to get others prepping with me over the years…I can NEVER get it back unless I move with the damage I did.

Nothing feels quite as unnerving as a non-close work associate stating loudly in a office “If the apocalypse ever happens I’m going to your house!!!…ha, ha, ha….” :thumbdown:

So, with past mistakes as my teacher, really good advice above from Yeti

Guns • Re: Need advice on storing ammo

September 20, 2017 DR1VENbyKNOWLEDGE 0

I buy A LOT of ammo…..But I SHOOT a lot of ammo. I don’t worry about it in the least…honestly.

Thousands of rounds, bulk storage of loose rounds in a plastic, unsealed bag, in a large cardboard box, in a humid garage and attic, temp swings from about 40 degrees to 105 degrees and stored(I think) the longest I have had for 7 years before its rotated out typically….And who knows how long before that it was manufactured and how it was stored……NO ISSUES.

Keep in mind I’m in SoCal so we don’t really freeze here….

Now, with that being said, did I mention I shoot A LOT?….lol. I don’t worry about it as I’m always buying new and rotating it out with somewhere about 5,000-10,000 rounds in rotation(whole bunch of different calibers) at any time for SHTF…..Ammo short of being cooked in a fire, frozen, or getting flooded is fine for years in almost any storage.

BUT , for LONG TERM storage without any rotation(Think Legacy inheritance here,decades to centuries) you ABSOLUTLY should control those conditions….. If that’s the case or you buy in bulk and are not sure you’re going to get a chance to shoot all those rounds within 5 or so years(Like 1000+ rounds of say 30.06) stick to controlled environments as best as possible….

Here’s a great “Break-it-down-for-you” storage article for legacy type storage….http://www.skilledsurvival.com/ammo-storage/

Now ammo isn’t cheap so if you’re worried about it, protect it……But me thinks short of just flat out hoarding or not really being a shooter and having some sort of rotation in the mix, with even just a general mindset of basic preservation you’ll be just fine. ;)

First Aid & Medicine • Re: Completely Un-Scientific Study…

September 19, 2017 DR1VENbyKNOWLEDGE 0

This already has been well documented in the past, but it was the first time I actually “noticed” the effects myself….

It’s easy to influence ourselves with bias when grasping something new in our understandings so we have to be skeptical in our research when noting effects on this like I was until just recently even though I’ve studied the research for years…

And to be clear, this is a TEMPOARY effect on health that to the best of our understandings so far, will really only be traceable during storms and events and should pass after the event….NOT ALL PEOPLE ARE EFFECTED.(still learning this but there is a trend of more susceptible folks)

This is a real-time visual of our KP index…It will continue to change here as a visual as time passes….If the current date shows an elevated storm level and you notice something it COULD be related. I am not a Dr. of course and this is not health advice. If you don’t feel right there is no substitute for actual Dr’s advice, but this is just something to note.

Image

if you want to bookmark the link go here and then add it…. http://services.swpc.noaa.gov/images/planetary-k-index.gif

I strongly suggest to view this skeptically if you think you are under effects so you don’t bias your thinking…..Ignore the grid….if you feel “off” somehow, THEN go look at the grid. Not the other way around….. If you notice a trend over time, well then, there you go. :)

You really shouldn’t feel anything until KP over 4 IMHO and most likely not until higher but who knows really…Each person will be different……

The single most absolutely certain thing I DO know for absolutely FACT is, that we really don’t know too much of anything for certain as humans…lol :floppytongue:

Be well all…..

We had a leak here in 2012 and the reactor was decommissioned…. They were alerting the public back then(It was thru the media but residents in a 10 mile range were all contacted personally on what to watch out for and how they would be notified….Think that was thru reverse-911 if I remember correctly)

Now, Edison is responsible for notification within 30 min to both counties here(Orange and San Diego) if any issues arise with the dry storage for the waste onsite of the decommissioned reactor. Tablets were issued directly to residents.

Survival Shelters • Re: DIY Underground Shelter – With parts

September 14, 2017 DR1VENbyKNOWLEDGE 0

Very interesting….Looks like an option for an extremely well build.

I’m completely ignorant to average cost to these type items but is $20K plus all shipping cost a good deal for a 14′ X 20′ parts only?

I think I saw at one time a shelter company putting something just a bit smaller completely for you for a little more in cost…Also had the air filtration and blast doors and escape hatch…..Am I wrong in that recollection?

Again, I really don’t know so please excuse the ignorance if I’m just way off base here….Thanks for the link.

General Preparedness Discussion • Re: The under $5 emergency supply list for food, water & med

September 12, 2017 DR1VENbyKNOWLEDGE 0

Awesome list!!!!….Great contribution to the prepper movement with the rise of the undereducated of the subject matter…

I mean that sincerely…

There are far too many people out there that live in todays society that have been spoon fed everything from food availability to mind numbing TV programs. they have NO IDEA on how to start and see things as too complicated and never start even the most basic preps out of parallelization and cost involved.

Having a blog you will get ahold of some of the curiosity seekers that will stumble upon your postings even when they’re not looking for “Prepping”.(it happens)

With a list like this someone might start where normally they’ll read a bit, see a more detailed list(And more practical for long term goals) and not start out of indecision.

*** I.E…One of my biggest holdbacks when I first started becoming responsible for myself was the sheer volume of info out there and the cost involved for serious prepping and the storage space it would take up…It held me back for about 5-6 months from buying my first purchase trying to figure out where I should focus first…. months, gone…..

Then we had another earthquake and I went out that day, with no list, and spent about $100 on canned goods and bottled water…I set it in a big tub and put it in my garage overhead storage in a 1 bedroom apartment we were renting……Where it expired and went to waste ultimately…lol….But while it expired my attention was changed. I had accomplished my first prepping goal and I started taking practical steps and growing my better laid plans/preps….That’s what matters.

The point is, a simple list may grab the attention of someone who just feels overwhelmed with the idea of prepping and get them off their paralyzed proverbial Assss so to speak……I don’t care whether it’s a $5 item, a $100, or $1000…..If it breaks the cycle of doing nothing, its a win and that was the best item they ever purchased no matter the cost….

That first $100 that expired into complete uselessness was the best $100 dollars that I’ve ever spent and it has gone the furthest by making me take the first steps….. Even if you don’t consider a list perfect and others poo-poo on it, if you list reaches 1 person and starts them on their journey, THAT A WINNING LIST.

Good on you PreppingGuide….And thanks for the list.

I had accomplished my first prepping goal and I started taking practical steps and growing my better laid plans/preps….That’s what matters.

The point is, a simple list may grab the attention of someone who just feels overwhelmed with the idea of prepping and get them off their paralyzed proverbial Assss so to speak……I don’t care whether it’s a $5 item, a $100, or $1000…..If it breaks the cycle of doing nothing, its a win and that was the best item they ever purchased no matter the cost….

That first $100 that expired into complete uselessness was the best $100 dollars that I’ve ever spent and it has gone the furthest by making me take the first steps….. Even if you don’t consider a list perfect and others poo-poo on it, if you list reaches 1 person and starts them on their journey, THAT A WINNING LIST.

Good on you PreppingGuide….And thanks for the list.

General Preparedness Discussion • Re: The under $5 emergency supply list for food, water & med

September 12, 2017 DR1VENbyKNOWLEDGE 0

Awesome list!!!!….Great contribution to the prepper movement with the rise of the undereducated of the subject matter…

I mean that sincerely…

There are far too many people out there that live in todays society that have been spoon fed everything from food availability to mind numbing TV programs. they have NO IDEA on how to start and see things as too complicated and never start even the most basic preps out of parallelization and cost involved.

Having a blog you will get ahold of some of the curiosity seekers that will stumble upon your postings even when they’re not looking for “Prepping”.(it happens)

With a list like this someone might start where normally they’ll read a bit, see a more detailed list(And more practical for long term goals) and not start out of indecision.

In general, health effects should subside as soon as the storm/type passes.

There was an absolute MONSTER flare that will be in general missing us after the ones already passed that started this thread.

Just be glad this one wasn’t facing us and the sun spot has passed the limb going behind the sun in relation to us.

We don’t know the exact scale of this one since it was departing but it was an X 10 +(HUGE)

There is possible heath effects from this incoming storm but it’s unlikely IMHO on this one since it wasn’t facing us directly…..But, as always, Eyes Open.

Here’s a breakdown in video…..Remember this one is nothing to get worked up about as it’s missing us in general(Thank God)….https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ju1-QZXBEUQ

WoW…Are we glad that spot turned out away from earth…

Via Spaceweathernews.com—“Looks like it was an X10+ possibly…If true over half our solar system will be effected.”

If that was facing Earth that would have been most definitely an “I think we’ll need to cancel the barbie this weekend”

We’ll never use “Cancel the barbie”….life as we know it will be over before those words will ever be uttered.

Can I just be the weird one and say that I have never felt BETTER this past week while all of this was going on?

Maybe it’s the weather turning cooler, who knows? Whatever it is, I’ve enjoyed it. :thumbsup:

Our cat wakes me up singing every morning at 5:00 AM like clockwork. However, Friday morning he was singing VERY loud and it started up around 3:30 AM. He was very annoying and I had to shut our bedroom door because he took forever to stop. :crazy:

ETA: Just looked into this a little more. Strange how so many health issues related to the heart can be affected during this. I actually had bypass surgery. All this past week my sternum has felt SO much better (see above) AND I have felt a strange calmness which has left my heart rhythm beating almost perfectly since the surgery. No crazy fluttering off and on. Again, not sure if any of this has anything to do with this solar event, but if it does…I’ll take it!

Love to hear you’re feeling great….Most likely has noting to do with the solar even so enjoy it and here’s hoping it stays for ya. ;)

geomagnetic storms and solar flares will effect different people in different ways from what I’ve observed….this is just the first one I experienced anything on…never felt anything before so I had to check here…I used to think, well, I don’t know what I used to think!…lol

The data was there, but I never felt anything before….lol…Changed my outlook for sure.

Good on you Outback :thumbup: …It is a stretch, of understanding….

This is new science but the models have been proving, if not 100% yet so should be challenged so we can strengthen the findings or abandon the models searching for the correlation in a different way….But, the correlation between the Suns influence on our weather patterns is there. It’s already proven. Not just on our planet of course as we’re tracking it on others as well……But any real desire for unbiased learning will be challenging as you have to force yourself to keep the “Learning Door” open…..No science is finalized…..

I sometimes need to remind them, The Earth was flat…Proven!, the Earth was the center of the universe…Proven!, the Sun rotates around the earth…Proven!…lol…The list goes on and on forever.

I know you follow Ben so continued study on this specific topic you’ll start to see it with more exposure to it from him and in your own research as I have…..But NEVER stop challenging it. :thumbup:

You know about Sun spots, yes?….Ever hear of an Earth Spot?

I have seen multiple times a flare, then either a rapidly appearing small storm(Earth spot) and immediately in that area an earthquake. It’s predictable. Nowhere near perfect, but predictable.

Do you know what OLR(Outgoing Longwave Radiation) is and how we can tie that in as well?…..Its heady stuff but the cross-ties are just beginning to be understood and how the interaction and at what levels of influence each have upon each other in picture-perfect predictable models.

There are so many factors involved for predicting these models we have a long way to go still…..OLR, Coronal Hole Streams, Planetary alignment, Gravity Connectivity, Solar cycles, Magnetic Shielding Variances,….So.Many.Factors.

Longer study is needed….4 years is nowhere close to “Proving” it(lol) but I definitely see a correlation so far….

OK…here we are. Noticed effects as of now….


Health effects

KP index hit 8…. lots of felt health effects in human and animals.
I did polls on multiple websites since I actually was effected myself with a massive migraine…. You can see a few different replies from others and my experience along with chart info on our forum here.

Earthquakes
Mexico goes without saying…8.1….More on spaceweather causing earthquakes here…(Long video but will teach you more than I am willing to type….lol)

(note)….Google drive previously had only one other outage before…01/17/2017…The same day energy was arriving from a large coronal hole stream!(arrived 1 day earlier than predicted)…Coronal hole explained here for that arrival. Video here.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDOiNm8H3rI

Hurricanes

Irma was projected to turn North and ride up the East side of Florida….My brother lives in Tampa….I called him last night and asked him what he was doing….They’re trying to get the fleet of fishing boats inland and were just going to keep an eye on things he says…I tell him to pack up and go now…With the flares the storms are going to pick up steam and the eye will pass directly over Tampa if not a little to the WEST of Tampa. Jose is right on its heals and will be a Cat 4-5 in no time.
Track is updated now and looks like I was correct….Jose was updated to cat 4 this AM

You can watch education video here for solar weather influences on hurricanes here…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lku33_7_iI4

Phew!!!…..Hope you like the info….

Been a long few days for me folks but nothing like you out there in the areas effected with the storms. Prayers out to you and your families…

Be well, Be safe….
