    Snoqualmie Valley, anyone?

I'm wondering if the WWA group ever meets up, or if even a few like to get together to do 'stuff'.

 

Here's a thing: this weekend, March 9-10, at the Evergreen Fairgrounds in Monroe, is the Mountain Man craft faire (or whatever), and is a great place to find early 19th century items like leather, tomahawks, muzzleloading rifles (I think), etc.

What I really wanted to say is that I am building a small farm on the Snoqualmie, between Duvall and Carnation. I need 'work share' folks. People who want to get dirty weeding, tilling, planting, harvesting etc. and in return you get a box of whatever's being harvested that month.

Drop me a line if you can, or let's get a thread going.

    Touching bases

Hi Locavorous,

Any interest in a meet up?  I'm out of the eastside (Kirkland), and would really like to get to know some of the PPer's here in WWa.  Maybe a Saturday or Sunday morning breakfast at Pete's Grill & Pub in Tolt would work.  Thoughts?

    Sure, I’m game. Know any others?

Ken,

Thanks for reaching out. A breakfast meeting in Carnation sounds fine. Know anyone else, or is it just us?

Any ideas for agenda, or what we'd like to accomplish?

Feel free to email or PM me through this system.

Doug

    Local meet-up

I need to comment, for a change.

I've been a PP member and read the "Daily" daily.  Couple years ago I tried a meet-up with another PP member who, it turned out lived within a few miles.  We met in Olympia and decided to meet again at my house (we live in Lewis County east of Chehalis).  I invited an interested neighbor/friend and we had a couple meetings.  Then my neighbor and my wife and I decided it would be best to start our "community" very local ie. members must live within a mile of us. 

This has exceeded my expectations.  I was really surprised that so many people are interested in preparations.  We now have 6 couples and may add one more couple.  We rotate our meetings to each other's homes to get to know our neighbors better and to  see how each lives.  Each person has a different reason and concept of how a collapse might occur but we all agree on being prepared.  Each can contribute something.  I requested that everyone should read CM's Crash Course but not sure if they have yet.

The meetings usually have an Agenda.  This week we have a local MD who is a friend of one member, who will be giving us a 4 hour course on First Aid.  At our December meeting we just had a potluck and this summer we're planning a BBQ.  We established ground rules and we limit membership so that we can all get into a living room and so that the meeting can be controlled and stick to the Agenda.  Also we vote on who we want to join and someone has to know that couple first.  Most of us are retired but very active, especially with gardening.

I would like to attend one of your get-togethers in the future.  My nephew and my daughter both live in the Seattle area.  It would be great if you had it near a small airport (Snohomish?) so that I could fly up.

let me know if I can be of any help…

Hi Doug,

I'll PM you to setup a time here in the next few weeks.  If anyone else would like to drop in, that would be fine by me (if any of you other PP'ers are interested, feel free to chime in and I'll cc you on the date/time).  No set goals at this end, just more of a meet and greet with local like-minded folks was the plan.  For some odd reason, I'm not a big fan of the word "agenda" anymore wink.

My 2 cents, thanks!

Ken

    Many intested in Farming

I see a PP crowd trending to the small agriculture business model. And I think that is fantastic.

I also send my support for these types of interactions from Idaho!

Interesting interactions I'm sure. Localize it!

    Duvall-carnation

Hello guys,

i have recently purchased acreage in Duvall and plan on building a Blueberry farm. I have been working day and night to get this dream to fruition and would live to meet up with others of like mind. I have changed my entire outlook in the last two years. What a ride. Anyhow meeting up with people from here sounds great.

Hi Dick,

We'll look to set up a get together (bar-b-que or picnic) at Cady Park, or somewhere near there, in Snohomish here in the near future.  Will keep you posted.

    Action, I love it!

Thanks for the vote from ID! And thanks DickD for your testament. I've had dreams for years about working together, but actually finding 'like minded folks' who are Doing and Willing To Share has been difficult. Even in Western WA, we're mostly in our own private Idaho.

T2H is making this happen, and I'm grateful. I can share org roles & activities as the local group coalesces.

BHamster, I live in Duvall, can help, and have a like-minded friend with a rental in B'Ham. Perhaps another connection…

    For the record, this

For the record, this conversation died on the vine. My  posts and PMs remain unanswered. Sure, we're busy, but ignoring is suspicious.

I think it appropriate to ask for bona fides to a degree before letting folks get too close. If someone doesn't provide at least an outline about what their goals are with meeting up, and providing some credibility check, I'll remain slightly suspicious of 'hey let's get together'.

For me, chatting can be a waste of time when I have an enormous list of To Do's and not enough hands or time to get 'em all done 'before winter'.

Because, Winter is Coming.
