Re: The Great Reset?

WRT the great reset, this is the next book I will be reading: COVID-19: The Great Reset . It's available on Amazon, and is supposedly what is coming out of the WEF in Davos. I have another book to finish off first, but judging from the Amazon reviews of The Great Reset , it looks like more socialism...

Re: The Great Reset?

How can you have a discussion about political decisions that could alter your life without discussing politics? You might as well roll over and expose your throat right now. Sticking your head in the sand is not going to make it go away. And Agenda 21 is yesterdays news, its Agenda 2030 now. The gre...

I was looking for the school SurvivalinthebushInc, to see if they were still in operation, when I came across this old gem from the NFB; survival in the bush 1950s style:

Re: Protective Hedge

Personally, I think hedges are a double-edged sword. While it might give you privacy, it also keeps your neighbors and passing cops from seeing anyone who might be trying to break into your house; there's nothing criminals like more than something to block the view of nosy neighbors. It might also g...

Re: Master Maintenance List

Bi-annually, review your rendezvous plans and comms in the event you are separated from your people when disaster strikes. Rallying points, landmarks and phone numbers can change or become inaccessible over time (torn down, in a danger zone, out-of-date). Communications can fail big time (EMP, syste...

Re: Rainwear

If you want to know how well your rain gear will protect you, wear it on a motorcycle or scooter. Rainwater, driven by the force of the wind as you ride, will find even the smallest orifice and pour in. I bought a set (jacket and pants) of Wetskins at Canadian Tire roughly twenty years ago. Last yea...
