If the bad thing happens you will be in a world of hurt whether in L.A. or 2000 miles away in a different state. There will be no escape from L.A. so it doesn’t really matter where you are, both scenario’s are not to your advantage. If you go to the same location every time you travel you could rent a room or a small storage locker and store some supplies there. Big expense to equip a second location but if you ever need it at least you’ll have something to fall back on.

General California Discussion, News and Weather • What to do if the SHTF and I am out…..way out.

September 24, 2017 Liverchip 0

Not really a California topic as it could affect most of us. I work in an office in the Los Angeles area and live about 90 miles away. (Yes I am considered a super-commuter.) I have my get home bag in the trunk and am semi-prepared to make it home come hell or high water.

My job also involves occasional travel to other states, including the East Coast. I have been thinking what to do if the poo poo hits the fan and I am 2000 miles away. I am thinking of a mini get-home bag that can be packed in my luggage. Obviously a firearm is not an option.

Just wondering what others opinions are on this matter. No, changing jobs is not an option.

According to people like Nancy Pelosi, I am considered a “potential terrorist” because I am a veteran. You can add, white, straight, pro-American, Christian, and conservative.

I haven’t done much of anything in awhile. Got the blahs. But. I did get the shed where I can get in it, several empty cardboard boxes tossed out. Restacked existing stuff. Got several tubs of stuff out of the RV. It’s too cluttery in there. It’s getting time to think about getting out of the RV, its deteriorating and I’m getting tired of RV living.

Nebraska Discussion, News and Weather • Prepping Fatigue?

September 23, 2017 Drunkenchef 0

Correct me if I am wrong, but it appears that “prepping” isn’t what it used to be. Activity on this website, as well as many others…seems to be on the decline. Due to the fact that the Mayan Calendar of 2012 turned out to be nothing more than hype…just like Y2K. I am sure many people profited from other people’s fears from instances such as this. It is also understandable that Nebraska is not exposed to the same things on the east and west coast, but I still find it most prudent to prep. Keep in mind that when the SHTF the government is going to concentrate on self-preservation….while the common folk like us are to fend for ourselves until help arrives (if it arrives at all). I am quite certain the Nebraska is not very high on Uncle Sam’s priority list….

Thanks to pop culture, show such as “Doomsday Preppers” and “The Walking Dead” created a fan base to another passing fad. People are like lemmings and follow anything that they consider as “cool”. People such as this have an attention span of a three-year old and will quickly latch on to the next passing craze. Ghosthunting? Prepping? What’s next? Teaching your pre-teen daughter how to twerk to rap videos perhaps?

Prepping seems to have come to screeching halt upon the election of President Trump. Many think that there is no reason to prep now and everything is ok. I strongly question the intelligence of such people. President Trump may be pro-American and not a gun-grabber, but it certainly does not mean that our threats have diminished. Enemies foreign and domestic have come out of the woodwork and made their presence known.
To compel matters, Mother Nature seems to have become fully-active and vengeful.

People have given up on prepping, or think it is a waste of time and money, might need to re-asses their current situation. Prepping is hobby to some…which by definition it is…but I see it as a necessity. If didn’t see the need…I’d be spending my time playing video games and drinking beer. Those of us who take the time to get our collectives heads out of the sand and see what it going on around us, would see that we live during uncertain times. We should not live in fear, but in a constant state of preparedness. At the time of this posting, Puerto Rico is completely without power, and it may be several months before the electrical grid is back up and running. It was old and vulnerable to begin with…so perhaps they will get a new one. Nevertheless, this is a prime example of what can happen to us, or anyone else in the world. I strongly encourage everyone to be self-reliant, self-sufficient, and to help others if you can. Keep in mind that local, state, and federal governments main concern is self-preservation. No one is coming to rescue you if others are going to be at risk, or if resources are needed elsewhere.

In ending, now is not the time to be caught with your pants down around your ankles.
Prep now when the timing is good.
Complacency kills!

Hi Everyone,

I am a “mature” female – slogging along learning about prepping – like maybe for a decade now. My hub and I live in WA state, east of Olympia. Looking to connect with maybe a few folks that like to share info about prepping – so we can continue in life-long learning; but also, contribute to a prepping community in some way. I used to volunteer for the ARC – so I do understand about being prepared – but like most humans, I don’t necessarily heed justified warnings consistently and need community encouragement to actually move forward. That said, I can be independent too. It’s just that getting older slows me down! Ok, so wish everyone the best – and looking forward to connecting! Thanks, Sandee :)

I don’t know about others but I grew up “prepping”, have done it all my life. We lived in the country,
we always put stuff back to eat, back then it was feast and famine. I continued after growing up was
a way of life to me, always has been. Not my husband so much. Had a lot of years nowhere to have
a garden then in Texas 15 years plus ago I started planting one again. It was so hot and dry there, hard
to do, had to irrigate but still canned.

Have been doing it well over 20 years now, could not as much this year as I had, hope to feel better
next planting season.

They say more people are canning then ever, don’t know if that’s true but sure see lots of canning
supplies in stores now, so they must be selling. Lots of folks my age no longer can or choose not to
so I don’t know.

It’s an art, my DIL says she is interested but its lots of hard work and I’m not sure she will do it, time
will tell. Would love to pass gardening, canning, and sewing on to her. They did it in Russia but her
mom didn’t show her how.

So I don’t call it prepping, just our lifestyle. Same with hubby and all his DIY, just our way of life, we
are fairly self sustaining and could be moreso if we needed to be.

No charges were filed.

Interestingly enough there was a case of road rage in NJ that had to do with somebody being cut off. No baseball bats or guns were used but the person who cut the driver off was slapped with a felony and got a major lawsuit (but not for cutting the guy off).

I wish I had more time to sew again. Last time I was in goodwill, I found a 100% silk blouse in a nice neutral gray and an ombré gray to purple skirt, also pure silk with a lining. The blouse fit except the 3/4 sleeves were too snug, the skirt well, just no. But the material was gorgeous. And I couldn’t think of a thing to do with it.
Old sweaters can be cut and sewn into use items. Old ratty towels to pot holders, etc.
an ex-bf received a quilt made from his gramma’ s old house dresses, just a simple pattern with lots of memories sewn in it.

Crap!! Driven, I really don’t like you right now. Omg. Frigging daddy long legs are freaking disgusting. The big spider was creepy but ooooh I feel sick, them other things.
The only bug I’m afraid of. If I had that in my house I would just move.
Cast iron was talking a spider not aliens from the pits of hell.
