Re: Whats to fear...?

Update from the Nova Scotia Hurricane zone I just wanted to give an update. As everyone knows, Hurricane Donian came ashore just outside Halifax. NS had a power loss to approx. 350,000 customers.

Re: Rainwear

Goretex (and similar fabrics) are prone to seam separation with time. You can purchase seam tape and re-seam the interior. The membrane can tear and is susceptible to puncture.

Re: So what should one be preparing for in the first place?

What should I be preparing for in the first place? I think that this is really a personal question that can only be answered by the reader. The answer is dependent upon the situation, To me being a prepper is simply an attitude. Someone who tries to prepare for contingencies. In my mind, Prepper doe...

Re: Victoria Members

Having spent some time on the island (teaching wilderness skills at Strathcona Park Lodge) I envy your location. Really nice area! I have two sons in Victoria today. They will compete in the Ironman being r...

Re: Maintenance lists and other clues on what to do or where things are

Great points! This hit home for me this past year. As you might recall, I broke my leg/ankle this past year and I ended up with a cast and strict instructions not to put any weight on my leg (the other one had tendon damage to the knee). I ended-up crawling everywhere. As expected the snows came and...
