    Fishing basics

    Excellent post thanks
  2. WOW Has anyone seen it? This is a story about a fellow who went to Alaska and used a 15 m camera to document him building a cabin His name is Dick Proenneke and he is in a very remote area. Does everything by hand from start to finish and even grew vegetables. Love even listening to his voice. Just a salt of the earth type of a person. They show this film on cable channels. SO good

    Arthritis

    Juzcallmesnake, alot of good advice there. I think I will go ahead and look for 2nd hand knee brace and two hand and arm splints. Am supposed to be wearing the hand and wrist splints every night I sleep but it keeps me in a mental injured mode when I use stuff like that. However, I can see the day where it will be a non choice item. The knee brace I used to own and gave away as I hated it. BUT same deal there will be a day of non choice. Will try to keep costs down and purchase one 2nd hand. If not for me might be for someone else. T Thanks for the support NavyVet_77 I think there are alot of like minded folk here. I do have tunnel vision when I set my mind to things. Always feel I can endure almost any amount of pain if its for a good cause. As long as I can say I have done my best then when I close my eyes the final time I will rest in peace

    Arthritis

    Yep, I have come to the realization that arthritis will probably screw me in a SHTF situation but I am not letting that stop me from doing the best I can. I probably wont be able to carry my backpack far, due to arthritis in my knees and both my hands have arthritis which might make it difficult to do the knots I am trying to learn or any of the many things I need to be fully capable of. (slingshots another tough one) I don't care though. Not going to give it power over me. I am going to pick that damn bugout bag up and get it on my back, put one foot ahead of the other until I black out if necessary. Have been practicing in my bedroom just picking it up and getting it on my back. Its the first step of many

    Are your friends sheeple?

    Amen to that

    Are your friends sheeple?

    Excoastie, something I learned a long time ago and I am still guilty of forgetting this is that we are not everyones teacher. For the dear friends that I love I will extend myself. So far it has alienated me from a couple that were dear to me. A Doctor and his wife. Both extremely cerebal yet incredibly stupid when it comes to survivalism. Okay, I realized I forgot that I am not their teacher. You have to allow people to make their mistakes and learn at their own pace. On the other hand, another couple that I love dearly are welcoming me to show them and help them get prepped. I will be flying down to the US for a few days to stay with them and that will be our focus. *other than laughing and eating of course* Extend your hand to the worthy ones in your circle. If rebuffed just try to not let it hurt your feelings.

    Thanks Inspirational Need to learn what punkwood and fat wood are
  15. I am SUPER new to all this and have to say that learning to survive is probably one of the most fascinating subjects and skills I have ever been involved in. Having said that.. I am quickly realizing that even the clerks selling survival stuff like Knives etc seem to react kind of different when I explain to them that I am creating a bugout bag in case of earthquake or disaster. First off they didnt know the term bug out. Thats okay. Maybe in Canada its a different term. I will learn. What is bothering me is the glazed over eyes or standoffishness that seems to occur when I explain my reasons for buying all the stuff I have been buying. They go from very positive body language and good eye contact to aversion and monotone. I work on an aircraft for a living and frankly, we are the most superficial bunch of people. Alot of judging goes on. I am dreading the discussions coming up when I am flying... Even the sweet old guy in Home Depot got all condensending with me when I explained my reasons for all the rope and asked him for advice. ya know what???? Those will be the same people that will look to those of us that have prepped to provide for them. Sorry for the rant. Feels good to have somewhere to do it
  16. Ahhh MommyLiberty you will know what I mean when I say its not cool in the airlines to discuss this type of thing. Its a very judgemental arena. Way too much time on everyones hands to gossip. I am interested in the Rolly Polly Extreme. Will check it out. I usually fly the YVR - Syd long haul flights. In an area like Sydney and Vancouver I know I am at risk of earthquake and need to keep myself on the ready. The only thing that holds me back is money. Have just finished vacuum sealing food for my cat and myself should SHTF.. Every day I try to do at least one thing to better my situation. Bless you and any tips will always be appreciated <3
  17. Thanks so much I will check it out <3
  18. I bought a FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer today. Started vacuum sealing my cats food then I will go into my car bugout bag and my main house bugout bag and start vacuum sealing the food stuffs and will work on vacuum sealing photo copies of important documents. If I am travelling and unable to physically enhance my bugout supplies then I make sure I read some of my survival books while on the road.
