Best Places to Survive

Recommended Posts

Oregonchick: Just wondering if you have ever read Dies the Fire, by S.M. Sterling. It was the first book that I ever read that got me thinking about preparing for some type of disaster or TEOTWAWKI. Your part of the country (the Willamet VAlley) is the setting for the books. I think the original trilogy is pretty darn entertaining, and actually has some fairly sound thought behind a lot of the ideas (assuming the original premise could happen).

 

Sorry for hi-jacking, now back to your regularly scheduled thread!

 

Way late, but that is a really interesting book. Like most books about an apocalypse situation it has plenty of fiction, but also deals with some of the hard decisions that need made and most importantly makes a reader think for themself. I made the mistake of reading the second trilogy first, but am liking the first trilogy much better, I'm just starting the second book.

I absolutely love this series (especially the first part of it - it goes a little "new adventures of old King Arthur" after the first few books). It's such fun to read a survivalist novel set in my part of the country, and provided some food for thought about different areas of the state in terms of a good BOL. Plus I just love the characters. So glad Schoeny recommended them, and so glad you're enjoying these, too!

Sure have enjoyed reading this thread. You guys are an interesting lot.

I really havent figured out where I would go... I own a house an hour west of Vancouver BC. I have forest in my back yard and own down the ravine. I thought I would end up back in the forest but there isnt enough of it.

After reading all of your thoughts and getting a little more insightful I realize I need to truly give this thought and planning.

SIgh.... dammit. I like it here but probably not enough wild life to sustain myself and all the rest of the folks that would be scrambling here.

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
