Miracle Valley is tucked in behind Hatzic Valley on the north side of the Fraser River east of Mission . Its a small little slice of heaven I share with cougar and bear ( mostly the bear ). It is rather rich in more self reliant sort of folks , an ecclectic mix of organic homesteaders and drug affiliates .

Well just had a meet with 3 others in my area. Was nice to see others that think like me. Working on a get together at my location. But will have to be tents for now till i get road up to where it needs to be. Clay road sucks if it rains to much. Specialy when you have idiots drive on it wet and get stuck. Will keep everyone upto date. Will talk it over with my other half and partner tomorrow. He reading the mag info. Mutual assistance group stuff tonight.

Thanks, Syn for the info on your little slice of heaven. Kind of sounds like ours, with the same eclectic mix of folk.
We have a great little backwater spot just a few metres from our place, where I took the kids and grandkids for a cool down swim yesterday. Next weekend we will go to another beach about 5 properties downriver, where I can walk out to my chin, on sand, and still not be in the current. It's absolutely wonderful.

Anyone still here for prepping?

Here in BC we are just finishing a provincial state of emergency where 30,000 + people were evacuated for up to three weeks with minimal notice, martial law was instituted (but never declared), police harassed homeowners who refused to leave their homes even though the local fire danger had subsided, government officials asked residents NOT to believe social media BUT had no relevant information available through their official news outlets.

Yet no discussion, analysis, or debriefing on this (or any) prepping site. While this incident may be "small scale" to some, many major precidents were set for what a more sizable event might look like from an Emergency Mangement perspective including faster suppression of individual rights.

From a prepper perspective, this situation is textbook for analysis, dissection, and discussion.

But...

I wondered if anyone was going to talk about it.. but so far, yours is the first comment I have seen.. I guess we wait and see if it bring in more folks thinking about it.

I took a course after the Fort Mac Fires on how to plan, prep as a farm for a fire.. what we could do for our animals, what we can not do, and a lot more in between

It a intensive day of training with a lot of homework brought home for you to do afterwards

Hi there, hailing from the Lower Mainland. Looking to make contact with others and get some ideas and suggestions on preparing. Relatively new to all of this.

We had left our property hours before the fire even started going on a weekend trip with overnight bags and credit cards.
All bug out plans were for naught ,cuz we weren't even home.

The fire came within inches of our house but several neighbors were not so lucky: 3 houses within sight burned and two other neighbours lost outbuildings and/or RVs.

Media would have one believe that the noble fire department saved our house but it was a neighbour a few properties down that fought the fire on our property for hours with a garden rake: the fire dept showed up the next day. I had never met the guy nor did I know his name until I went to thank him.
The police harassed him throughout his stay in his house and threatened to arrest him if he stepped foot off his own property again.

Most concerning to me is the use of military - not to assist firefighters but to re-enforce police. They came with about a dozen Armoued Personel Carriers with whatever cannons come standard on the "export to Saudi Arabia" version. They were not the "nice little green men" in blue berets. They used the armoured vehicles on road blocks to prevent people from unauthorized return to their properties. They are still in the city "assisting police" now, 3 weeks after the evacuation order has been lifted.

This is Canada NOT Syria.

For the evacuation of our town of about 12,000 people, police/provincial emergency personnel let people go either north or south at first. However, speaking to one official recently, he said that the whole thing was a learning situation for them ans "next time there would be no choice on where people would be required to shelter".

This is scary stuff from a civil liberties perspective yet most people accept this as necessary and the new normal.

This is Canada !
