Hi people! Totally new to this site, so im not really sure how to use it to its full potential yet. Im looking to find like minded people in my area to possibly team up with and make a bush camp. I have some skills and am working on building up some supplies, but i own no land to bug out to. Is there anyone out there interested in teaming up?

We had been living Midway between Mt Shasta and Mt Lassen nice area but hot. We grew up on the coast so we are admitted fog eaters. Good for you having some solar backup! I will have 8 monocrystaline 75 watt pannel feeding a pair of gel cell batteries for a 24volt system. I find the charge controller doesn’t car about voltage just current. DC to DC converters supply regulated
13.6vdc at 16 amps, more than enough. Have not used CB for a while is there a channel in particular used in Coos county? I think we are in a good spot on a hill so it’s good.

The Cascadia Fault Line shakes and quakes about 200 times per week, small, hardly perceptible mini quakes that might be releasing pressure and postponing that big one. The seismic energy lab at Humboldt State University monitors these quakes and you can look at their locations, depth and Richter scale levels on their web site. This department is run by Dr. Lori Dengler. If the big one happens you might be stuck where you are living due to the roads failing. For sure there will be no functioning cell phone’s so a CB radio would be a good back up communications system. Cheap and reliable. I have 2 solar panels and a small battery bank to power CB radio’s and AM/FM radio’s to receive information. I have fled the coast and now live on the western slope of the Cascade’s where there is less chance of being slammed by a large quake generated water event. Crescent City and Eureka both had damage caused by a quake/tsunami about 9 years ago and Crescent City got slammed in 1960 from the Good Friday quake that hit Anchorage Alaska.

New to SW coast of Oregon and was wondering if there is any group looking at the
Cascadia Fault for prepping?

Looking at comms, transport and food storage options… Ham, GMRS and even CB radio with backup power. Transport with possibility of road closures due to quake\flood damage. Alternate food storage locations for people located within tsunami inundation zone for back-up.
Suggested locations, frequencies or routes all welcome!
Never too late to have a game plan! :clap::shakeyes:

Welcome to APN, and Thank You for your service! For information on getting started check out the “Getting Started – the Basics” subforum here. There is a LOT of good information there to help get you started. Food and water are always the best place to start (you can’t live long without either one), and starting your preps there WON’T break the bank! For food, you don’t have to buy a lot of expensive stuff…just get a little extra of things that you usually eat every time you shop…rice, beans, pasta, canned goods, etc. all store well and your body is already used to eating them. Don’t forget the spices. One of the WORST things you can do when things go south is to all of a sudden start eating things that you’re not used to…good way to get a bad case of the runs.

For water, I rinse out the flat-sided juice bottles (like the ones that cranberry juice come in), run them through the dish washer, then re-fill with filtered tap water. The flat sides means that they can be laid on their side in the back of a closet, and even stacked. GREAT way to store water inexpensively. There are further tips in the “Getting Started” section.

Thank you for your service!!!!!!
Agree with what prepped peppernapple said about military supply stores and garage sales. As far as tools and yard/ garden supplies, I watch for estate sales and auctions. You can get lots of stuff dirt cheap. I prep my own food supplies basics, beans, rice, flour, sugar, salt, etc that I buy in bulk bags and seal in mylar bags in 5 gallon buckets. Spices in jelly jars that are vacuum sealed. I can everything not immediately eaten out of the garden. I can deer meat in chunks for stew. One thing to invest in is a vacuum sealer. Beginning preps… Plan for one week, then add on for three months, then long term, MOST IMPORTANT IS WATER.
