    I’m outta here…

Well after being an avid CM poster for the past year, I’m bugging out.

Simple reason, there’s nothing here that I can’t get anywhere else, with less repetitious BS, hysteria and boredom. Which leads to frustration and irritation that I can well do without. So I figured I’d post a I’m gone message, not because I think anyone in particular is listening, but because it’ll stop me from coming back here and getting tied up in this place again.

Chris has put forth a great idea and resources on the 3E’s, economy, environment, and energy. Some of us are working towards life in a world where those three things have dramatically changed, others are still planning, others will do neither.

My issues here are quite simple, where once there was a community now it’s a discussion on US foreign policy, and how the government is screwing us, with minimal actual discussion on what we need to do and what resources we need to develop and when these appear, then they turn into US foreign policy and how the government is screwing us threads. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the world will not die with a bang or a whimper, but with two people arguing on an internet forum over the actual means of how the end of the world came to be.

So on resources and planning, I can get that in many other places often to a greater depth of knowledge, since they’re specifically focused on those areas. The one thing this place had that it lost is community, I guess that’s the way with all things, it’s born, develops and then dies CM is a petrie dish of evolution. Anyway with that I’m gone, those who want to discuss things with me know where I am.

I’ll not be seeing you.

I totally agree with this sentiment. I miss the old days on this forum when I actually learned something.

Its time for me to take a break as well, but I’ll be back when there is actually something to talk about.

All the best and take care of yourself and PC up there on the last frontier.

Thanks for the education.

    Re: I’m outta here…

I agree.  One thing that I think has helped in the demise, is the lack of attention that CM himself has given to the forums over the past couple months.  I know he’s a busy guy and his life is in constant change mode for the betterment of his family so I can’t fault him.  But even in this thread

https://www.peakprosperity.com/forum/making-our-lives-more-resilient-martenson-family-chronicles/32298?page=3

He hasn’t participated in over a month.  This on top of losing many of the frequent posters due to probably the same issues.  While I think that the issue of the US Gov’t/Shadow Gov’t Screwing us is valid and persistent, discussion on the E’s has waned much too much.  Plus as was stated, new info on this site has been rather slow in coming.  Most everything is just regurgitation from other bloggers.

Good luck Gungir and family!  We’ll miss you and JAG much.

Take a breather and come back bro.

I had to do the same thing.
This is still a good community with value.
Cheers and best of luck,

Gungnir,

We’ll keep the light on for you!  The best to you and PC and keep the fire burnin.

I have not been much of a frequent poster myself mainly due to the amount of time it takes to present the Crash Course on a regular basis and to take part in local community building activities. I think Chris mentioned that he was planning on spending more time with his family and on his own preparedness activities now that he has new diggs to maintain. I consider that is a good thing.

I appreciate the knowledge and research you bring to this site and hope after you get your home complete you can find some time to return. Meanwhile, see you on up the line.

Coop

Er…I’m still learning from this site.

I don’t see any reason for the frustration. I visit lots of sites daily. I don’t expect any one site to be a certain way. I just like sharing insights and ideas with people.

Gungnir,

 

Sorry to see you go. I know what you mean by many of the threads seeming to be dominated by the US bashers that must have some agenda besides building a community. I try not to respond to most of it but it does become tiring.

I will visit your blog from time to time but do return here and share your experience with the rest of us.

 

Best regards,

Ken

Gungnir –

This too shall pass.  There seem to be regular cycles with this and many sites… eventually the forum environment will turn a new leaf and be more focused.  When the next shoe drops I think we’ll see the forums reflect more of the core focus of this site and taking action, and I hope you’ll be around here for that.  After all, you two are taking more action than probably 99.7% of the rest of us, and will be in a position to teach a lot  Smile
