    And what would be the top 3 or 4 states for preppers? I used to think Texas. But Texas is almost gone. 25% of the state's kids have illegals for parents. (source NPR)
  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    First off, I want to apologize if this topic has already been covered else where. When you hear talk of "bugout" or "relocation" places the two places I hear about most is either the American Redoubt in the north western states or the Cumberland Plateau. The Cumberland Plateau by most...

    I thought General discussion was the most fitting for this, Mods please move if there is a more appropriate location. I recieve Paul Wheaton's permaculture email regularly, His latest post let the community know that Author Mike Oehler passed away several days ago. Mike is probably best known...
  5. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    Hi there everyone, I was wondering if any of you would have suggestions about how to sell our homestead. We have 3 houses (one over 4000 square feet), 17 acres, hydro would be doable but we haven't gotten to it. A stream, acre pond, sauna, large garden, and we have been renting the other two...

    I saw a short excerpt on KTVB about the Ferguson vigils that are happening in downtown boise, I realize that most idahoans on here are more northern than boise, but I figured it'd be good to ask. Do you think that these protests could turn violent anytime soon? theres one scheduled for next...

I don't know if there just arnt that many people out there and I need to up my licence and go to 10M or if I...

    We have lived in the Seattle area since '87 and we're tired of it. We need to get way from the crazy politics and preferably away from huge population centers. We are looking at southwest Idaho; outside of Boise perhaps. Seems like it's a small city with much less expensive housing and less...

    ... and the wife has not been that into it. So, somehow I came up with the idea to start referring to it as a "vacation home" and we started to look into waterfront properties on a stream/lake/pond, etc. Well, suddenly she came around and got totally excited about it. Now she can't wait to get a...

    I'm sure this topic has been beat to death somewhere in this vast forum. Can anyone school me on the differences between ID and MT and maybe make some recommendations (not city specific) of good survival-type land in these areas? It's my understanding land is cheaper in ID, but I'm sure there...

    Today I took some time off of ReadyPRO and headed up to Mesa Falls with my Nikon D5000 to shoot some pics and vids. Here are some of the Vids of the Falls.... It was very well deserved down time.

    I have been reading and enjoying this forum for a little over a year. Great info and ideas, thank you. I live in SE Idaho on a small 5 acre farm. I have been prepping for the past 2 years. I hope to meet some local people, have a cup of coffee and see where it goes. We all need a little...
  17. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I was thinking about this, why build a sun oven if there is wood to burn? I could see the advantage in the fact of burn bans in dry, Summer weather. Even then a propane stove is at an advantage because it cooks fast. The only reason I see to have a sun oven is being without firewood or propane...

    Is there anyone in the Boise, ID area? I would like the chance to talk shop with people in the area and to find out if there are others in the area. Thanks for any info.:thumb: Thanks

    Hey all. My hubby and I are moving to the Boise area in 6 months and I wanted to hear from those who live in Idaho (or have lived there). What are some good cities to move to? What are the areas we should avoid? Anyone have a connection on good apartments that allow 6 month leases, are under...
