Making some Noise!

Postby JoelLM » Tue May 15, 2012 2:17 am

Just thought I should make my presence known in this part of the Forum, maybe even scare a few other yukoners out from under their rocks. Anyways, I'v already posted my intro in another part of the forum so I wont be doing it again especially seeing that I'm the only person here at present. You ever have that odd feeling that you are all alone? 8-) . I hope that I will start seeing more people from my neck of the woods on this forum. In the mean time I will be posting whatever I can as my projects start to progress in this part of the forum. That being said I probably wont post anything profound until the end of the summer.

Hope everyone is doing well!

Hi Joel. You are doig a great job! Keep up the good work. Army of One!!!


HELLOOOOO!!! Is Anyone else in the YUKON!!!!! Silence...wait, I think I just pissed a couple trappers off. :lol: Expect a reply, as soon as they get back to the cabin.

Go ahead, post your anger here. Just remember to direct it at Mountainman not at JoelLM. I am the one rattling your cage. Even Yvon of the Yukon needed a network. He wouldn't have passed up an opportunity like this.

I hope the Yukon Network gets up and gets noticed. There are some very bush savvy folks up there, tough as nails too!!

Mountainman.

Do displacer Yukoners count? I live in Alberta now and am stuck here I guess, unless I can convince my hubby that the Yukon is the best place to be... not having much luck so far! He doesn't like the cold! So, even though my physical body lives in cattle country, my heart is true Yukon gold! Hope some other Yukoners show up here online, it would be nice to chat and share with them.

Displaced Yukoner here too. I swallowed the sourtoe cocktail. Grew up in Whitehorse, 2 children born there, also lived near Dawson City, Faro, Carcross, Stewart Crossing, Watson Lake. My heart is still, and always will be, there. But, I currently live in North Carolina and am heading back to Canada - the other coast - NS - soon. When deciding where to move, I came across a listing for a great little house in Teslin (also the name of my current Siberian, hence my 'nick'). Made me drool but the cost of coming back all that way with all the junk I have accumulated since I left the north ... prohibitive right now. Perhaps someday.

Each summer I keep hoping the stars will align so I can get back up north for at least a visit - may try again next year because it didn't work out this or last.

Hello,
I just joined this the other day, was looking for other preppers in the north. Personally I know alot of people in the north that are great at survivalism, bush and hunting skills but i am uncertain about their attitudes towards "preppers" or "prepping? It seems (perhaps because whitehorse is so small) that people are sort of ashamed of being a prepper so they don't discuss it. I have just started prepping, i don't think the zombies are coming but i do think that we live in a hostile weather area and if the lights go out for any length of time up here (great possibility) people will start to die. If you've lived in Whitehorse you know what i am talking about. Another thing is we've all tasted what its like when the shelves are empty at the grocery store, again unique to the Whitehorse/Yukon. One truck goes off the road at Muncho lake and there is no dairy or meat on the shelves. Another example is the washed out highway possibility..shit happens and i think we are supposed to learn from it.

I notice alot of preppers even those well above the 49th parallel don't seem to really understand what it would be like if they had no heat source in a canadian winter. the are NOT prepared properly with their BOB's. they are following some guy's youtube video from Texas or florida.

up there, I would use the term Self Reliant or Self Resilient, prepper is just a word created instead of using survivalist.. yup.. created by two leading survivalists to counteract negative connotations brought on by the lame stream media..

this reminds me of the time in Iqaluit that we had no water for a few days as there had been a fire in town and it lead to all the water going to it and then some issues, and so no water in the pipes for two days, It was spring, cold yes but not bad in any way compared to what it could have been, I know its not nice to laugh at folks but if you have ever been there, there are fresh water creeks and rivers everywhere, throw a stone and you will hit water in the spring..

So we just packed up the gear, the hounds and headed to our favorite camping spot, the river soon filled up and down both sides with all the local folks, we were the only white faces in a sea of fellow inuit, and had a awesome time, I learned how to make a rock version of a rocket stove for cooking..

what was so strange to me, was the amount of folks that had come up to work for temp three or six month contacts that had nothing to prepare them or help them in this place, they were used to the goverment supplying them if they needed to go on the land and had no supplies of their own and they could not figure out to go get the water from the near by sources and just boil it for home use.. they were having a fit about the lack of drinking water..

Was a real eye opener to me on how peaple can be surrounded by things and never notice them, be it wild food or something as simple as water.
