Hi,

I have been a long time lurker of this site and decided to finally register an account. I have read some of the threads on this forum with great interest which has helped my prepping immensely.

In my neck of the woods we have two looming survival flash points:

Firstly and most importantly, the City of Cape Town is projected to run out of water on 21 April 2018 - the so called day zero. (https://www.iol.co.za/capeargus/news...-zero-12750743)

Most of our prepping in the community has been orientated towards dealing with the total loss of the cities' water supply and all the secondary problems associated with it. Most importantly everyone has realised you can not rely on government to come to your rescue, we will have to rescue ourselves.

Secondly is the ever present threat of civil unrest leading to a deteriorating security situation and resulting total collapse of society. No time frame has been set for that, but all indications are that 2019 will be an interesting year for our country.

We always hope for the best outcome but prepare for the worst. Only time will tell - until then we prep

Welcome EinherjaerZA, you will have a wealth of contacts with experience and minds to glean ideas from. Good for you being proactive and not just waiting to respond to crisis. Best of luck to you as well, from Miracle Valley, Canada.

Welcome to the forums. Sorry to hear how things are with ZA. I spent time in Cape Town and Stellenbosch in the the mid 2000's. I'll say it though the western world is not allowed to anymore -unfortunately it appears yet another sub saharan african country is going the same way the other 45 countries have. And no excuses this time, they started with a strong economy to play with and are blowing it. Hope the emmigration situation is okay for you guys, can always use more South Africans in the rest of the Commonwealth

Welcome. I spent a lot of time in Cape Town when I was younger and lived in PE for a while. SA is still my favorite country in the world.

Thanks for the welcome.

I am not involved with the Suidlanders, although they are the biggest prepper group in our country. The reasons for my none involvement are my own, but I have contact with the representatives and members in my area.

I have my own separate plan in place for meeting the challenges they are specifically prepping for. If my own plan becomes unworkable for any reason, I will however join them at one of their nearest secure area.

They are doing a good job in making people aware of potential dangers and preparing to meet them. When they started out they were considered a fringe group of extremist, but they are taken much more seriously in recent years.

I also understand that they have been raising awareness overseas about our deteriorating situation and the country as a whole. Furthermore in recent months they have seemingly increased activities with many more exercises, instruction sessions etc.

Thanks for the welcome.

As indicated in my introduction post, we are preparing for a collapse of society as a whole and this includes security threats.

Of more immediate concerns are the City of Cape Town running out of water in the next three months. This unfortunately is not scare mongering from government but a fact we have to deal with. Almost all our energy is currently focused on preparing to meet this disaster.

If the taps does run dry - Cape Town will be the first major city in the world to run completely dry and we will hopefully be able to add to everyone's knowledge on how to survive in such an extreme situation.

Thanks for that, it is good to know our troubles also raise awareness for the need of prepping all over the world.

Thanks for the welcome and your concern.

My family has been living in South Africa since the late 1650's, after being expelled from Europe for their religious reliefs.

Call me bullheaded, but we are not running anymore - a solution needs to be worked out for the problems we face, just like my ancestors did before me. Immigration means the death of my people in a generation or two as they assimilate into the culture of their new country. That is not something I am currently able to reconcile with.
