Welcome! Please introduce yourself? (Name, age, gender, location for example)
Hi, I’m Sylvia from West Coast Canada and here we are very aware of Fukushima. So not only do we set up a long term survival system we have to learn to survive radiation in our environment.
Since when are you into survival and preparedness and what made you get into it?
As a senior the memories of the winter food supply being stored away never really faded. Sacks of flour, carrots and potatoes along with smoked, canned and frozen salmon were the norm. Never quite got used to daily shopping. The gardening part has gone to pieces though along with storing skills for long term food safety.Becoming a fleeced senior has been rather unnerving so the dehydrator, grain mill and weed eating have become a daily adventure.
Why is survival and preparedness important or interesting for you? What scenario are you preparing for?
Since I’m alive and kicking it seems desirable to stay that way. For a while I did live off dandelion greens and nettles. Glad I had my sack of Quinoa and flour.. Hungry sucks and money is scarce. I think I’m living in what I’m preparing for…well close. No electricity is the next big agenda. Heat and light are essential here. They could be cut off by a whim of the powers that be, poverty or some event.
How would you describe your prepping / survival philosophy? What matters for you?
Comfort is a biggie for me. That means my neighbours too as I like to walk around the neighbourhood. So I yap about my activities a lot. Cool bunch here. Foraging for food in nature and having tools to process it into tasty food easily enough to have time for reading and fussing with my inventions or projects that amuse me. Long story that.
Do you have some favorite quotes or words of wisdom you like?
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
You are dying and have 30 seconds left, what do you do or say?

Welcome Sylvia. I echo Mountainbiker in that I would like to learn more about foraging. When I graduated from high school, my friend and I went camping for a week in the timber. All we took with us was a tent, a frying pan, some oil, matches, and fish line and hooks. Learned a lot but need to learn more. Ron S
P.S. we also took a couple of blankets.November 16, 2014 at 9:14 pm #29415
