NZ Preppers Sites, groups, etc

Post by sixin » Sun Apr 29, 2012 9:16 pm

Hey ppl,

Just wondering, having been researching Prepping etc for more than a couple of years, I'm somewhat surprised that NZ representation in Prepping seems to be very slim on the ground. Many forums, and groups to do with NZ prepping appear empty or inactive. A couple of the Facebook groups I have found appear nothing more than Spam groups for funny images etc

Now while this could be for many reasons, including people just being cautious, I was wondering if anyone knows of any other groups, forums etc that are focused on NZ.

Other than this site, the only other one I can think of is Michael Ruppert's Collapse.net. You have to pay to join but he has a world map of all the members and there are about a dozen kiwis. From memory most are in Auckland, Tauranga and Wellington.

Yes I'm aware of http://www.collapsenet.com, although from what I saw it was very americanized and didn't cover further afield, I could however be wrong.

I haven't joined collapse.net cos I'm too stingy to pay, and its very americanized. But there are definitely some NZ members. I take it you've watched Michael Ruppert's doco?

I have watched parts of it, but not the full thing, as the copy I have isn't that great.

It's good but there's a doco called Blind Spot which I like better. Has Richard Heinberg, Al Bartlett, William R Catton etc.
Anyway back to the topic of sites and forums for preppers in NZ, maybe it would be an idea to create one on facebook. I don't really do facebook these days but back when I was doing the activist thing in Auckland it was a primo way to network and keep abreast of things.

Its possible, but an issue with Facebook that many Preppers wont like is the identity thing.

I'd personally prefer a non-facebook site, but as a point of interest there is already a NZ Prepper facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Preppers- ... 268?ref=ts).
