Thanks for the welcome folks, i’ve learnt a good bit hear and between this forum and survivalblog I can keep abreast of any relevant news.

Yep – I’m rather lucky to live in NZ for a number of reasons, not least of which is the hunting! We get some great pigs down here too Novus ;-)

Hoping to buy some country land (all that low population density!) towards the end of next year and either build or relocate a house to do up [harden] and be able to put in vege garden, orchard stock and mixed woodlot forest.
So keen to have a spread of my own it hurts! I want to have my name on paper for it before things fall and transfer of title would become much harder (I can imagine things sliding towards farmer barons and indentured labor all too easily if there was a slightly steeper crash and we got cut off).
