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.

Of note….multiple stewardess that I personally have connections with in the US reported wifi and cellular interruptions as their networks in-flight went down today….Sporadic but noted on 3 different flights min confirmed.

Internet outages

Google drive….here.https://techcrunch.com/2017/09/07/google-drive-goes-down-and-takes-worldwide-productivity-with-it/

(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….

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

September 8, 2017 DR1VENbyKNOWLEDGE 0

OK all…update and answer here.

so some of you know I’ve been an avid studier of spaceweather and the effects on our planet for a long time.

A lot of this will be French to you so I’m keeping it basic as possible in this separate thread….

If you missed my other thread (as I was hoping you had from a few days ago for some un-biased feedback), we had some very significant solar activity recently and are feeling the full effects now.(The CME’s hit)

I have known about the potential health effects, but never knowingly experienced them myself until last night…..I was checking on this here with you all since my existing knowledge could have caused me to effect myself even on a subliminal level.

Here’s what happened…..I knew the CME’s were hitting sometime today but honestly put them in the back of my mind as I’d determined that they weren’t grid collapsing potential. forgetting about it I started having a small headache last night about 10-11PM my time(PST)…I went to bed thinking myself tired and watching too much TV and cell Phone…..

About 2:30AM our 2 year old woke up…She doesn’t really do this unless sick…She’s a heavy sleeper. when I woke from her crying I had a massive migraine(I don’t get Migraines)…So I was drowsy, in pain, and my little girl was saying “All Done” over and over….that’s her way of telling us something hurts or she’s scared and wants whatever we’re doing at that time to stop.

Wife went in to put her back down to no avail and neither our little girl or myself could go back to sleep for about 2 hours…Dog was going nuts…spinning in circles, staring at me, whining, etc..
I was so tired I didn’t even have the CME’s hitting us at that time in my mind at all.(as far as I can tell)

Waking this morning I did my usual routine and noticed we had massive geomagnetic storms from the impacts…S4 event.. Which means big…The KP index hit 8. Huge.

This is what I’m referencing…..

Image

You can also see the current KP index here from the Massive X level solar flares and the impacting CME’s on earth today by clicking here.(This is real-time so it will change)
http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/products/planetary-k-index

Way too much to explain in 2 threads so you can see whats been going on here if you missed it…..
http://americanpreppersnetwork.net/viewtopic.php?f=634&t=55913

I will be updating the above thread with monitored results from health, hurricanes, power transformer explosions, air emergencies, and cellular loss and interuptions later there…. Please reference that thread there and follow it from the beginning if you missed it and care to.

Thank you again all that posted….You helped me verify that this wasn’t just me influencing myself.

Hopefully this will help you guys be aware as well….It’s normal, understandable, and will go away shortly.

Holy cow…Troy Gentry just died in a helicopter crash.

I have been monitoring our grid, human and animal health effects, transformer pops, and emergency landings of planes with these CME’s and now just heard this….
There still reports coming all over the place from these items and while we’ll all be just fine mainly, this is still developing , but wow on this one.

Can be completely unrelated but I will be watching to see what caused this crash….http://myfox8.com/2017/09/08/troy-gentry-of-montgomery-gentry-killed-in-helicopter-crash/

WOW!!!

Already 4 positive responses in under 4 hours….OK. Thank you for your willingness to share!

I have to remain unbiased here with the feedback I get, but yes, there is a reason…Its normal but just starting to be fully understood and is on the cutting edge of study.

Please hang in there just a little bit more and I’ll explain in detail….It’s natural and rest assured that this will pass. This may open some of your eyes when I explain further…

Please feel free to chime in here if you haven’t yet…I’d love to be able to establish some sort of baseline even though this is completely informal.

Morning all….Late for work and also running a small experiment…lol. :innocent:

I will explain all as easy as possible in a bit but sort of want to see something in a different thread before going into detail and see the answers there first.(We had an issue here last night and its got my curiosity up)

If you know what I’m referring to already(Outback…lol), try not to post about it in the other thread so it doesn’t bias the feedback I might get there….

Yes…the earthquake and hurricane are effected from the impacts.

My brother lives in Tampa and I told him last night to get out of there even though the track was showing it going to the East of them….Knowing how the speeds would be increasing after the impacts I told him to ignore the news as it was going to go west……not good.

Jose is REALLY going to ramp up also in my personal estimates based on past analysis…..

Katia in the gulf will be something to watch as well….

Watch along the equator here and storm development in the coming days…. https://earth.nullschool.net/#current/wind/surface/level/orthographic=287.58,19.84,420

Got to run…More later…Take care all…. We are on high Earthquake watch for the next 24 hrs.

Just a quick ask here…I’m just checking something out and will explain later in the thread….
I’m trying to keep the answers unbiased here.

Did you last night or this AM have anything different with yourself or small children?

Headaches of unusual origin?
Rapid heart rate if you happen to be A-Fib or not?
Small children awakening and not going to sleep when that not the norm and they are not currently sick?
A dog unusually restless in bed with you or elsewhere?

If so, please describe whatever you’d think to mention with anything like this and the time and location you are(What time zone?)

Feel free to answer as you will…….This will either corroborate some findings or die as a wasted thread….lol.

Please bare with me in this strange request. :crazy:

I will definitely explain later today….thanks in advance all.

ON THE GOOD NEWS FRONT….

I’ve had contact from an associate and now with the Enlil updated this is looking much better…..THIS is EXACTLY why we don’t promote fear. :shakeyes:

I’ll now say I think likelihood of this event producing electrical grid failure at a 0.1% chance(Anything significant anyways)….We can still have a stacking effect of both X level CME’s hitting at the same time tomorrow the denseness looks mellow compared to the speed……May see a transformer pop or two but I honestly believe now this is just going to be another event of just educational purposes….

Oh, but go on YouTube and the rabid mouth frothers websites and listen to the fear monger HOWL!!!…..lol.

“Lots to see here folks, but move along…Move along”…..Enjoy the light show. :):thumbup:

Hi Outback….

Well, I know you follow this a little more than others do. You know my and Ben’s SEVERE aversion to promoting fear. I wouldn’t be honest if I didn’t say this one is a little harder to ignore the more info we are getting….

More info is needed still…but, I do agree with Ben that we need to pay very close attention. A 90% chance that we don’t have too much to worry about but I don’t agree with putting #’s out there as a percentage yet…It’s still too soon but yes, this one is big.

I also would be lying if I didn’t say that I have indeed buttoned up my faraday cage and filled the gas tanks but hey, I’m a prepper. :innocent:

I’m currently reaching out to some of my higher contacts as It’s a little weird I’m not even hearing about this one in the local news feeds as a newsworthy mention with the laughing news anchor.

It could be there just too much with the hurricanes and Trump announcements on NAGDA but not even a small blip in the news?
Smaller events but of note in the past were noted within about 12-15 hours normally…..Makes me go “Hmmmmmmm?”
3 different NASA announcements today and nothing from them either.

More as I get it….

OK…Update so far on the X class that popped this AM…

HALO on Stereo A is fully visible now(Earth directed for sure)

This one is definitely bigger but again, needs more analysis still before more info can be ascertained on the effects we should expect.

You can see it yourself if you want to before NASA updates the SPIRE by going here and then following the steps below….

https://stereo.gsfc.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/images

In telescope choose “AHEAD COR2

Then in display choose “Slideshow

Then on the right click “Search

It will start playing the most current images as a slideshow….Currently it’s in frame #’s from 45-57 as they play but that will change as time passes.

More ASAP…. :thumbup:

September 6, 2017 DR1VENbyKNOWLEDGE 0

OK guys…Pretty big update here. Important……..Sorry mom, I’m just the news guy. Hang in there… ;)

***So we had a bigger, additional flare around early this morning…It is too early for full analysis but I will be all over this today and will be updating accordingly.

The most important thing here in this specific post I can state is this new flare is the one the fear mongers love to hype up and drive the fear thru the roof to get as many clicks as possible on their websites and videos.

Don’t let it get you worked up too much until we have additional info.

So, by popular request for large bold print…lol….WE DONT THINK THIS IS EVEN CLOSE TO A KILL SHOT FOR NOW…

More info needs to be looked at but it does indeed look to have set off a large CME….This was an X 9.2 flare….pretty big. 15th largest in recorded history, biggest in the last 12 years.
IRMA is going to ramp up…there is a direct relation of spaceweather into up-surging typhoon/hurricane weather.

NASA’s websites are a little overwhelmed right now but I was able to see initial HALO on STEREO A before it glitches out……Please understand this is not reliable info yet.

I will update ASAP with any credible info…..For your sanity, please, any videos where you here someone talking urgently, over-excitedly, screaming, frothing at the mouth, etc…Do not let their emotions dictate yours.

Sorry i cant be more specific than that for now but this is an important update that I had to post….Anything less would be negligent on my part at this point.

Hang in there guys and I’ll update ASAP today.

September 5, 2017 DR1VENbyKNOWLEDGE 0

OK guys and gals….PLEASE…RELAX.

This is just science…..And yes, I AM a bundle of joy thank you. :rofl:

I IN NO WAY want anyone to become fearful on my updates here. This is just general awareness for preppers by a prepper promoting understanding thru education vs fear and “Head in the sand” syndrome. :)
(Not saying any of you are or will be, just being careful here)

IF we ever have anything that I consider dangerous I will make it absolutely clear that I think it’s that in any updates that I might give….Please also remember I am not a scientist…Just an average Joe that’s made this specific topic of study a personal passion and studied anywhere from 5 min to 5 hours per week for the last 5 years….In other words I still consider myself just above novice. ;)

****If anyone here feels they don’t like the updates please do make it known and I’ll stop…I will not be offended in any way whatsoever.****
I’d rather keep the info to myself than promote fear to anyone.

I know we have a lot going on right now…Personal loss, Hurricanes, N.Korea, The SUN….It’s all a lot to process at one time but I do sincerely believe knowledge is power. Pre-warned is pre-pared(see what I did there?…lol :D )

OK….so, for the update….

#1….There is nothing to fear from this event.

The southern group on the disk did indeed flare 8 times total yesterday with some in the M class range……There could be more as polarity mixing is still pretty significant and active.
(yes that’s a lot for Earth facing these days, but like I said it’s all good.)

M class we pay attention to……X class is something to be a bit more concerned with but we’ve had those hits too in the past and been fine.

SPIR has been updated to show the impact from NASA now.
(Real-time model projections. Image only good for a few days)

Image

The K index will show as things ramp up out of the green.(Again, real-time and will change with current storm levels)

Image

We expect an arrival tomorrow.
Strong solar storm weather should be expected and of interest to watch for better aural displays depending upon time of impact…Possible but lower likelihood will be satellite interruption, brief cellular interruptions, TV interference, maybe a couple of small, local, brief power outages to be restored quickly from line fires or transformer pops….again, nothing to fear for now just of interest to watch.

Unplugging of sensitive electronics would only be for surging power lines and not from this specific CME in my opinion…I’ll unplug my computer for a few hours, IF ANYTHING, out of an extra abundance of caution…even if you don’t you’ll probably be just fine.(Don’t know enough as an “Expert” to give advice in this area or not)

Ben, as always, has been my most significant teacher on this subject matter along with my additional studies over these years and he puts together excellent videos so here is his update and analysis for ya.

Natural Disasters • Re: Sun update…CME incoming…Very active sunspot.

September 5, 2017 DR1VENbyKNOWLEDGE 0

OK guys and gals….PLEASE…RELAX.

This is just science…..And yes, I AM a bundle of joy thank you. :rofl:

I IN NO WAY want anyone to become fearful on my updates here. This is just general awareness for preppers by a prepper promoting understanding thru education vs fear and “Head in the sand” syndrome. :)
(Not saying any of you are or will be, just being careful here)

IF we ever have anything that I consider dangerous I will make it absolutely clear that I think it’s that in any updates that I might give….Please also remember I am not a scientist…Just an average Joe that’s made this specific topic of study a personal passion and studied anywhere from 5 min to 5 hours per week for the last 5 years….In other words I still consider myself just above novice. ;)

****If anyone here feels they don’t like the updates please do make it known and I’ll stop…I will not be offended in any way whatsoever.****
I’d rather keep the info to myself than promote fear to anyone.

I know we have a lot going on right now…Personal loss, Hurricanes, N.Korea, The SUN….It’s all a lot to process at one time but I do sincerely believe knowledge is power. Pre-warned is pre-pared(see what I did there?…lol :D )

OK….so, for the update….

#1….There is nothing to fear from this event.

The southern group on the disk did indeed flare 8 times total yesterday with some in the M class range……There could be more as polarity mixing is still pretty significant and active.
(yes that’s a lot for Earth facing these days, but like I said it’s all good.)

M class we pay attention to……X class is something to be a bit more concerned with but we’ve had those hits too in the past and been fine.

SPIR has been updated to show the impact from NASA now.
(Real-time model projections. Image only good for a few days)

Image

The K index will show as things ramp up out of the green.(Again, real-time and will change with current storm levels)

Image

We expect an arrival tomorrow.

Natural Disasters • Sun update…CME incoming…Very active sunspot.

September 4, 2017 DR1VENbyKNOWLEDGE 0

Just general awareness right now…Not enough info yet.

The southern group has developed very rapidly the last day and intermixing grew fast. Earth facing and has had 3 flares in the M class range today so far and will continue to be active for the next few hours at least.

One CME for sure and most likely not too big but E-spire is not updated yet.

More to come later if significant or watch worthy….

September 4, 2017 DR1VENbyKNOWLEDGE 0

Thanks both for the congrats. :thumbup: It does feel good to know I’m finally handling one of the most important preps(And the easiest to ignore)

This N.Korea stuff is hard to not make you worry but I’ve seen fear take over actions in the past…Breath.Prep.Relax.

got another dosage pack of IOSAT on the way for extra family/friends(It’s only $8 so NBD)….I already have enough for immediate family and now learned the dosage and prep for my little girl.
(Link here if anyone needs it…. http://www.anbex.com/files/product_patent_insert.pdf )

Rotating water out now…..I’m generally good in the area of junk silver and gold but looked at prices and decided to get some more before the price bounces too much again.

Small things….It’s all we can do really anyways if already prepped.

In Memoriam • Re: Services for Rebnavy

September 4, 2017 DR1VENbyKNOWLEDGE 0

Awww…Man. :(

I am so sorry to hear this.

I know a lot of you have known Reb better than me and a lot longer, but in the almost year I have been on here I’ve come to think of Reb as a friend in the PM’s and public interactions we had.

Anyone that can make me think of them like that and smile as often as I did in a limited interaction and just in an online forum had to have been an amazing person to known personally.

Prayers out for friends and family.

I’m really going to miss you Reb. Your banter and wit were awesome to have had interactions with and your advice was sound. Thank you. No more pain my friend….

RIP buddy.

This website has been helpful and I appreciate the plan people lay out to start prepping in the beginning stages.

I would concentrate on getting your pantry completely set up – canned goods will last far past the expiration date, plus with 6 family members buying in bulk is a great way to save money without LOOKING like you are “crazy” prepper. You can keep adding to your stores this way while continuing to research and setting aside money to purchase freeze dried/dehydrated food. For what it’s worth, I only buy Mountain House brand. You could buy a few pouches of them at Wal-mart’s camping section and see if the family likes it.

You’ve gotten some great advice here all around…The canned food route will be the quickest supply that you can actually use as well so you’re not wasting money…Rotation gives you day-to-day food for the family and you will be growing your supply at the same time very inexpensively. ALDI and dollar stores, Costco, Wallmart, etc will get you bulk quick and cheap.

While Illini and RockinB are absolutely correct, the best advice I can offer you on that front is use any urgent concerns/worry in a positive way…structure your focus…Make it work for you and don’t let fear control your actions….that’s how mistakes are made.

I’m telling you this from experience…..I went the “OMG I NEED IT ALL NOW” and spent thousands on freeze dried to bulk up in 1 week……Don’t get me wrong, it did make me feel relief when it arrived, but looking back I really wish I approached it with a canned food rotation rack and those supplies instead…..a family as large as yours even as un-wielding as the #10 cans are they would be a great option for you where it’s just too much in single servings for my family of 3.

Last echoed advice I’ll second here is the garden….An immense resource. Knowledge, family time, and a self-sustaining resource for long term….Cant recommend enough getting the family involved in that one.

Regardless…being here and alert are the biggest steps….Congrats to you and your family. :thumbup:

Big things….

Well, I’ve managed to accomplish something I haven’t been able to do for 3 years…Lost 39 pounds in 4 months! I have Abs!!!!…..lol

Joking aside I’m really happy…..at 5’11” I was 239lbs and 45yrs old. I’m now under 200. :)
I did it by diet alone and occasional short hikes with the baby on my back.

My biggest prep needed was just accomplished. :):):)

One the “lighter” side of things for preps, there’s been huge progress also……(He-He…see what I did there? :rofl: )

I’m now CCW in 34 states. I volunteer in a security team for a very large organization on weekends undercover.(keeps my skills sharp and I’m doing some good) And the people I’m in contact with as team members are lets say, “Like minded” and “Resource connected”….things are good. :)

I did about a 70% water prep rotation and plan on rotating out the other 30% today/tomorrow.

Goal this month is to get some last summer plants in and start some Fall sprouts….maybe rotate out some IOSAT pills with all the hubbub goings on and learn if I can use that in emergency for my 2 yr old.(If even possible, dosage, etc…)

Have a great month all….

CI!!! good to see ya man! where ya been?

It’s a good point on the weight but it most likely wont be an issue.

But that’s another good thing about the bricks….Weight distribution. You can stack as little or as muck in an area as fits your needs.(Think dead closet space with an upper shelf, etc…only adding one or two there)

Anyways…check them out.

I had a small issue with a single gasket in my order and called them asking for a replacement. The OWNER actually called me and gave me his personal cell #….A good ol’ boy, well to do….didn’t have to call me personally but did. Had a really long conversation with him….amazing.

I bought them in a special sort of way in a highly discounted rate from Wise foods….If interested in buying them in boxes of 8, let me know and I’ll give the details. PM me.

You could try using water bricks: be creative and turn them into end tables or coffee tables; with a sheet over the bricks to hide them and a board or glass top. Careful on how much weight is on the table top.
I thought about doing this as a shelving unit, but not sure on how much weight the bricks will hold. I figure if you don’t over load the shelves it should work::::T.P.,blankets, lite prep items, etc. things that won’t add a lot of weight.
I also have a well, but I do store water just in case.

If you do use your water from your water heater turn off your power supply to it, GAS/ELECTRIC.
until water/power is restored. This could burn up your heating element and now you have to repair/replace your water heater. or start a fire.

^^^^^^THIS!^^^^^^^

I cant recommend them enough Rosemead. the waterbricks are amazing for living in an apartment. 3.5gal each…stackable, lockable, build furniture, fills crevices like under a bed, behind the couch, entertainment center, upper back area of closets, in garage storage unit. 100X worth the cost if you take strength and flexibility into account….can take them camping, 1 in the car when traveling, etc.

I have about 20-30 of them…had them filled for about 1-1/2 year now and no algae with normal bleach prep and just tap water…it’s about time to rotate it out I guess. rotated out 2 50 gals 2 weeks ago.

Anyways…strongly recommend them. they’re almost indestructible.

General Food Topics • Re: hi how do i get golden apples

August 31, 2017 DR1VENbyKNOWLEDGE 0

OK, first thing…

Go to the secret fairy in the Red Glen south of the troll bridge. Don’t forget to promise the troll a golden feather or he wont let you pass!!!

Then when the fairy queen appears in the Red Glen tickle her left toe with the “Everlasting Tickle Rod” you get at the beginning of the game from the fairy lord when he appears in the kings chamber.

The fairy queen will then transport you to the “Fields of Forever” and you’ll find the Golden apple orchards there.

Sleep there three days and there will be some Golden apples to harvest. Punch the trees 20 times to harvest them. Watch out for any that have the green Worms of Woe in them. Those ones are poisons.

This should work……. If it doesn’t, try going to a gaming website instead of a preppers forum. You might have better luck there. :rofl:

Happy elf smashing…
