Introduce Yourself • Greetings from Texas!

January 14, 2017 Talmek 0

Hi Folks,

I’m a new (1-year in…is that new, still?) prepper that has been looking for a forum of active members to share ideas and thoughts across this big wide Internet. It appears that this is the place that will be my home for awhile, so I wanted to drop a note and say hi from the new kid. I’m currently at the 1-month preparedness milestone and am working toward a longer-term plan, so once I get my feet under me I’m sure I’ll start bugging anyone who will listen for answers around “how did you <X>?”

I have a large (7 – 2 adults and 5 children) along with three dogs, a bearded dragon and too many fish to keep track of. I’m the primary prepper of the family, although it seems as though my oldest child is beginning to show interest in self-reliance as well.

I’m looking forward to getting to know all the movers and the shakers here on the APN forums, so thanks for taking the time to read all this!

Wilderness Survival • Re: Winter survival shelter

January 14, 2017 Fyrediver 0

That shelter with the fire under the tree reminded me of the Jack London story “To Build a Fire” wherein the subject has built a fire under a tree and the snow above melted and fell on him and extinguished his fire. Good improvised shelter but something to consider when building a fire is what is above it.

General California Discussion, News and Weather • Re: Drought is over !!!!

January 13, 2017 donba 0

Within an hours drive are 4 reservoirs, Permed, Castaic, and Castaic, after bay, and Peru. There are lots of reservoirs, yes we could use a few more. The 5 year drought, just about drained them all. But then we add in a liberal minded management of water. Can’t disturb a minnow that is less than 2 inches long, so hundreds of acres of farmland, and orchids dry up. Peekachoo I see you are in Colorado, we keep sending some of our libs your way, just keep all we send you. No thats OK, no need to send every third one back, just keep them all…………..

FYI: Russia is not a communist country any more than Germany is a Nazi country.

What Americans should be concerned about is the educational system in the US that fails to (among other things) to teach polical systems and the distinguishing features of each.

As preppers, we would be wise to “fear” our own politicians to a higher degree than outside boogeymen.

You should fear politacal correctness more then education, ’cause education (colleges/high schools) are teaching more and more about the PC BS, period. They don’t teach reading, writing, athrimatic, etc., they teach nothing more then getting out of the pink for women, blue for men, gender neutral bathrooms, changing men to womem, changing women to men even if they are in prison, etc., I say they should all be extingushed, PERIOD.

We should start sending a few fake news stories around to counter balance the other fake ones.

I heard that President Trump has decided to dig a canal from east to west on the border. That way it would be paid for by charging ships passage. As the Atlantic is about 20 ft lower than the Pacific the current would be too fast for people to swim it.

Once it is dug shallow the current would finish washing it out to a decent depth. On the plus side it would stop all global warming and give the earth better balance. Parts of californicate would be flooded in the process thereby flushing it out.

Sounds good to me.
