  1. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    Hey all, I was wondering if anyone knew what kind of clay is common in the SF North Bay, especially Sonoma County. It is all over the North Bay and it is a near black or dark grey when wet and becomes grey when dry and crumbles very easily. It is everywhere and makes it hard to grow anything in...
  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hello, I like mirroring my gear with military setups as a beginning outline and modifying it from there. I was wondering, who would you think to be better to follow? Airforce, Army, or Marines? I do not expect to be anywhere near the ocean. So I tend to move more toward the army than marines...
  3. California
    Just thought I'd post this in the California sub-forum to make sure everyone who wants to come knows the details. Here's the original thread. Come join us! It's just a bite to eat and an afternoon of visiting with prep-minded people. We can exchange ideas, meet potential new friends, and...

    I am incredibly very interested, almost to the point of obsessed, with getting some hands on education in pressure canning. I am willing to buy one if some people in my area would like to teach me or we could learn together. I can't do it at home as I have a glass top stove and I am told...
  5. Hunting and Trapping General Discussion
    I am interested in the aspect of hunting. In particular, I want to go Wild Boar hunting. If I were to hunt boar, I would probably end up using a M1 Garand or a Marlin .30-30 . Now the question is, where do I do it? I know of no people in Northern California that own sizable property to go...

    I come from a land that has had her share of natural and man made disasters. And I'm sure there will be more to come. Despite the population pressure there is a lot of outstanding wilderness areas. I love to go out for weeks at a time and get away form the urban wilderness (Bay Area) I live...

  11. Events, Connections and Get togethers
    Just bouncing an idea out there. How about the idea of a "preparedness expo" of sorts over a weekend in the spring/summer of 2010. If anyone has any skills in prepping, survival, or homesteading they can share, this would be the venue to do it in. Now I am not the organizing type but if anyone...
