Calgary newbie-ish prepper, married female in my 30s. I like to garden, camp, hike and would love to learn how to fish. Ive been fishing for the past few years with no success since I'm kinda only teaching myself.I've been canning for a handful of years, self taught. would like to move onto pressure canning. Would love to learn to be more self-reliant. Hubby is in no way interested and probably thinks I'm a paranoid nutso, but he loves me anyways. Sooo I'm kinda doing this on my own.

Hi there,
I just joined today. I am in Calgary. I have a few basic preps so far, but would like to meet up with anyone in Calgary. My wife and I are in our late 30's, no kids, but one on the way! I have dabbled in gardening, am an avid hiker, a struggling fisherman... and I just recently got my PAL.
We like to camp, it's part of our "bugout" plan.
Hope to hear from others here in Calgary.
Thanks.

Welcome 007rob!

I hope you enjoy it around here. There is a wealth of knowledge just waiting to be explored. If you can't find what you are looking for, post a question and someone on here will have an answer.

The area around Cowtown is getting networked as the prepping community expands. Although, reading the Alberta Forum pages is a great place to start remember the Canadian Preppers Network includes more pages. If you poke around the site you will see what I mean. Or after you sign in, click on the Portal Button - top left under the banner. It will show you even more places to visit.

Cheers,

Mountainman.

I have to snicker at how people describe themselves to the group :)

My name is Michelle. I'm in the BC Lower Mainland. I work for BC Health (Prov Gov).

Prepping has been an interest for awhile, and especially since moving to BC from Alberta in 2009.

I've been on and off about getting my Amateur Radio license, sometimes studying a fair bit, and then leaving it for sometime. I have to say, no wonder Amateur Radio hobbiests are a dying breed. The technical knowledge to get a licence is still pretty steep (and I have an an electrical engineering background).

How prepared am I now? well... my family has MRE's (from costco), we have backpacks with a week of MRE"s, blankets, flashlights, water, radios, and other emergency gear should we have to leave the house.

We also have three kitties who are like our kids. :)

Hi Michy, welcome to the forum.
I am also getting into ham radio, and will be starting a course soon...yes, lots of technical stuff, especially electronics!
Hope to hear lots from you, and maybe even talk on the air sometime.
