  1. Hi everybody, Hope you won't mind me posting this here. Otherwise - huge apologies. Have you been thinking about building a new life off-grid? See the information attached below. I'm unfortunately unable to respond to any comments under this thread, but please do message me directly or email our team on offgrid@raw.co.uk if you'd like to find out more about this exciting opportunity.
  2. My background is almost 20 years of U.S. government service doing everything from leading small teams deep in enemy held territory to helping businesses and facilities protect themselves from natural and manmade disasters in major U.S. cities. I don't have all the answers but I have a good basic fundamental foundation and can hopefully at least help point you in the right direction. I also realize that there are some really amazing folks that are readers of the Survival Cache website and have a wealth of knowledge. Between me and the other 200K + readers and contributors I'm sure we can figure out some interesting questions or just have some great discussions about pretty much anything survival related that may of interest. I'm really looking forward to seeing where we end up going with our discussions!
  3. This is a good place for you all to let us know what you like, don't like or would like to share with us about how we are doing or could do things better to make these forums a better experience for you. It's also a great place to let other people know what's going on in the survival and prepper world that we may not already know i.e. the Self Reliance Expo coming up in Denver this September 16-18 (We're planning on being there!) We will do all we can within the limits of our technical expertise, time and finances to provide a great experience and interface. Ultimately this is our community (which means your community) and depends on everyone's input and participation to make it a hub for information and sharing. Thanks to everyone for making Survival Cache a great place on the web to meet and discuss important issues related to survival!
  4. What would be of interest to you? What would you like to see written about on the site? Let us know and give us some ammunition and hopefully someone will be able to help you address it and we can share what we find with everyone!
  5. This was an introduction thread but I didn't stay on top of it and it got hijacked... oh well!
  6. Hi all, I'll post one of my articles from time to time on the forum. Here's one that's a general statement on my feelings about organized medicine. As an old "country" doctor (don't mind that creaking noise, it's just the rocking chair or maybe my joints), I have been saddened by the turn that traditional medicine has taken in the recent past. It seems that most young doctors today are becoming employees of large medical corporations. Instead of hanging up that shingle and really getting to know their patients, they have opted for the comfort of the corporate womb; they are assigned to a hospital or clinic, put in their 40 hours and let the next shift worry about how that post-op patient is doing. If one of their patients is in dire straits financially, they just ship them to the payables department with the disclaimer, "Sorry, I don't have anything to do with that". Our medical system is turning our medical students into drones, and making a generation of intelligent and mostly altruistic healthcare providers into cogs of a huge machine. A well-oiled one, perhaps, but still a machine. Not that I begrudge the young physicians of today a life. I remember the day when, as a resident, two of us were marched to the emergency room. The chief of the department said, "Ok, you two are in charge of the ER for the next six weeks. Divvy up your schedule however you want." I replied, "Umm, there's only two of us.." Chief: "Yep." I ended up doing 12 hour shifts every weekday, took Saturday off and worked 24 hours straight on Sunday (36 hours if you count Monday's 12 hour shift). So I understand that doctors today want to live a normal life. Many physicians today are women, and they want to have children and put together a normal home life for their family. Most doctors aren't given much training in running a practice, either, so it's a lot easier to have a corporate financial department run it for you. Despite this, there are still other options: Dr. Susan Rutten Wasson of Osakis, Minn. has figured out another way. Dr. Rutten Wasson is a throwback to the days before corporations took over the medical landscape. She visits patients at home and charges a reasonable fee. She'll see you the same day if she isn't already seeing someone else. She doesn't accept any insurance but isn't above taking eggs or the occasional pie as her gratuity. She hasn't raised her fees, even as medicine itself has become more costly, and works out of a converted gas station for an office. She didn't start off this way. She worked in a trauma center in St. Paul, and decided after a while that it wasn't who she was. Now she treats people in rural Minnesota, Amish farmers or Latin migrant workers who couldn't or wouldn't go to mainstream medical centers. She homesteads and lives a simple life. She won't be buying a Porsche anytime soon, but it's not her priority. Her patients are. Her practice is a statement: Medicine is a ministry, not an industry. That's the lesson I learned many years ago. It's a lesson that young doctors, and organized medicine itself, would benefit from. Dr. Bones www.doomandbloom.net
