New to PP , from NE Columbus

Hello everyone. I'm new user from northeast side suburb of Columbus. I work as a sheet metal welder/fabricator in south Columbus. Hope to connect with others here.  Are there any Ham operators out here? Looking to learn and grow my prepping skills.

We wish to connect to those who are concerned with the detrimental changes taking place in society. We are not religious wild eyed conspiracy theorists but we do believe there is a massive conspiracy for control taking place in every area of society. It is our opinion that this assault on our freedom has to be understood from a combination of natural and spiritual perspectives.

New member from South Miami

We live, work and play in South Miami and truly enjoy it here.  We also enjoy our second home in Montana.  Interested in meeting other like minded neighbors to share ideas about a more resilient and increasingly self sufficient lifestyle.  

I do not consider Miami survivable in the event of major social unrest and plan to panic early to avoid the rush getting out of town.  This sounds simply but not so easy when you think about it.  

Thanks and I look forward to a quality discussion.

 

Jon

Railroad ties: a potential source of water & garden pollution?

With the heightened sense that the economy is getting more and more unstable, I've been trying to shift gears to more seriously address resiliency (vs temporary emergency) preps.  So water resiliency is one of the things that is now at the top of my list.

In addition to looking at rainwater collection, I have started to more seriously consider getting a well drilled on my property.  So I started looking for answers to questions like:

"Are there local businesses that specialize in well-drilling that I may be able to hire?" (Yes).

NASA Scientist Warns "California Has One Year Of Water Left"

Another article to highlight the severe water issues we have ahead of us.  And just yesterday was an article that California's chances of getting the Big Earthquake in the next 30 years is 100%.  Big cracks coming in our future.  Plan and prep accordingly.

Geoff Lawton's 2015 Online Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) Course

I am currently in my second week of taking Geoff Lawton's online PDC, and it is literally blowing my mind so far.  This is not my first exposure to a PDC -- I took an on-site one locally in 2012, and it was definitely a valuable experience.  But Geoff's PDC is a whole other order of magnitude -- the depth of understanding of natural patterns he brings is unique, and he has the talent of taking a complex and complicated subject and distilling it down to its simplest elements, so it is easily understood.  It is informative AND inspiring, and I highly recommend to anyone
