Re: New to this...

Hi Everyone, I wanted to make a post to see how many others are in NS and CBI. I'm very new to prepping but I wanted to make a network of people in these surrounding areas. I think in particular it would be important to establish a radio communication between everyone. I am considering taking my Am...

Re: No shortages?

Labour industry? Trying to get a windshield changed due to severe rock/windshield interaction. Closest appointment is 3 weeks out and they said being completely swamped. That’s at a larger chain place. Tried to call some of the ma-n-pa places and they don’t even pick up the phone. Similar situation...

Re: The best EMP/ nuclear war movie I've ever seen!

We were made to watch this in class in Grade 9. It certainly clouded my fourteen year old brain.

Re: Major Telecom Service Outage in the East

Coincidentally enough, a couple of weeks I enrolled in an Amateur Radio course to start in the fall. I don't figure I'll be a master at it but I should be educated enough to keep track of what's going on in an emergency. Coincidence two; the gent who signed me up for the course mentioned that one of...

Re: Major Telecom Service Outage in the East

proudly admit they never carry cash anymore... I notice that, too. Many people seem so proud that they "don't bother with cash anymore". If the debit is down at Tim's my sister would have to borrow cash to buy a coffee. Then there's:"I got rid of my land line and our family uses five...

Major Telecom Service Outage in the East

There is a major telecommunication outage in Atlantic Canada and beyond today. Affected are cellular phones, landline phone, text, interac, and banking services. I went for gas and there is a "Cash Only" sign on every pump. As one of the few folks who favor cash, I had no problems but ther...

Re: Your opinion on stocking Canadian nickles?

I'm a "casual" nickel saver. I glance at my pocket change at the end of the day for any pre-'82 nickels and toss them in a bowl. Some cold, dark evening I will watch TV and roll nickels. Very little effort. I might as well have a few before the powers-that-be melt them all. Another, possib...

Re: You get a warning that something is about to go down...

I totally stole this from the UK prepper site and was enthralled by the pages of responses so, here goes... I'd love it if you would post the link to the UK thread. If I had two hours before SHTF: - Get child #2 to leave university, fill car #2 with gas and groceries and head home - Make sure child...

Re: Aloha from rural-ish NS!

Welcome Skillman, I am also from rural NS. That must have been me you saw in the Co-op. Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get me. I do stay away from the camo/realtree though, too...Nascar crowd. I, too, like thorn bushes. I planted a barberry bush under one window a couple o...

Re: I Feel Like A Wimp- Tales from the Green Valley

I watched them all over the past couple of years - Tales from the Green Valley, Tudor Monastery Farm, Victorian Farm, Edwardian Farm, War Time Farm, Secrets Of The Castle and Victorian Pharmacy. I've seen some of them twice and always learn something. Nice to see how people lived before electricity ...
