As for how EMS deals with these things, it's usually not healthy. But you actually can choose not to remember something, if you want. Not sayin its the right thing to do, just sayin. Watch the Nicholas Cage movie "Bringing out the dead" for a pretty accurate portrayal of EMS life. I have a friend w...

Got a wind up AM/FM/SW radio for Christnukkah! Yay! We gave away several wind up LED flashlights to the nephews/brother/sister crowd. I try to give them something useful every year, so that they don't become victims during a catastrophe. Also got one of those teeny air compressors that plugs into yo...

Excellent, well thought out plan. We are now down to one cat; sadly, we had to put the other one down this year due to cancer. I absolutely would not bug out without her. We have pet carriers (several extras now) and quite a supply of dried food, canned food and treats. I also have a supply if dry f...

Tidal waves, earthquakes, volcanoes, floods, ice storms, and rampant coffee shortages. Aaah, I love the Pacific Northwest! Welcome from Tacoma! Ah, volcanoes don't scare me. I grew up on the foothills of Mt. St. Helens. Whenever she burped, we got to go home and have a mini vacation. So I think tha...

When I was a kid I went on a scouting trip for a weekend. Rained like hell when we arrived and the Scoutmaster, 2 assistants and 4 assorted parents were unable to coax a fire into life. After about an hour the Scoutmaster gave up and asked who had Scout Juice. Us always prepared types manager to pr...

You've never heard of the Amish? Well, I suppose it's possible. I would think that Aus may have something like them. They are Anabaptist Christians who live "outside" of modern society in their own communities. They generally don't use modern technology such as cars or telephones. Many do not have e...

Hello from Oregon! Excellent... looks like we got some great people from OR/WA here. I work in Portland and commute in every day. The big "if/when" in the back of my head is an earthquake taking down a couple of the bridges. I have some preps at work if I'm stuck there, but it would be a close to e...

First post... hello from SW Washington State

Not much to say here... I am introducing myself to a group of strange strangers. I have recently survived the flood of 2007 with no real problem other than a high water mark on my ankles. A job site that I work at up north required extensive repair after an 80 foot tall Doug Fir uprooted and fell on...
