Re: would you live here?

First, let me thank everyone who posted a note to reply to my question. It was very informative and helpful. As you might have guessed, it was a question that was part of a "research phase" for the group I work with so we could get a bead on where our target group might be found. This same question ...

would you live here?

I know I don't post very often (I much prefer to lurk and learn lol) but I have a question I would put to the group and am very interested in thoughts and input. There is currently a plan being put together to build a historically accurate `1300-1400C small settlement in Alberta (east of Calgary is ...

Re: ghost towns/abandoned properties?

All good thoughts and opinions. What I was thinking of is more along the lines of what I have read about (admittedly, mostly in the states). 1. find a property you like.....*do not* attempt to "move in" and "claim" it or try squatting! (this could create hard feelings down the road) 2. do your resea...

ghost towns/abandoned properties?

Has anyone investigated any of the abandoned towns/places (cabins etc.) in northern areas when looking for BOL or homesteading land? Anyone have any idea what the laws might be in acquiring a property in an area like this or have any other thoughts on it?

Re: Buggin as a group

I've been reading this thread with interest and there have been some great thoughts brought forward....who to travel with, where to meet, where to leave messages, cache's for food and other supplies and possibly the setting up of networks. One thing that hasn't been addressed, though, and I think it...

Re: intro

Preppersaurus, I was looking at the mountains east of Prince George. Mountain terrain I am very much accustomed to (lived in the Banff/Canmore corridor for years), good water systems, mild (compared to many places I've lived lol) and hopefully some nice quiet bits of land to settle into. Honestly no...

Re: Calgary Preppers

Hi everyone, I live in Calgary (though I am hoping to move out of the city in the spring) and would love to get together with some like-minded folks....share some thoughts, ideas and all like that. If anyone is planning a gathering or meetup in Calgary, I would love to attend. Maybe we could all mee...

intro

Just thought I'd pop in and say hello (hello!) and introduce myself. Hopefully this will be considered an appropriate forum for me....I currently live in AB, but plan to settle in BC. Like most people, I spend a lot of my days reading and researching what a long-term "prep" lifestyle might look like...
