  1. Financial Forum
    What annual return percent do you use? What percent inflation? What standard deviations? What stock / bond / international distribution do you use for those numbers? Do you change the numbers as you get closer to retirement and go more conservative? I'm in the process of doing long term...
  2. General Discussion
    Yes this is a bit general of a question but I think with people of like minds and like ideas I'm willing to bet even a general question like this will end up with similar answers and thoughts. My wants include, awareness and education that really speaks the truth, I want to be prepared but I...
  3. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    My family is about to purchase 100 acres of raw, wooded land. We want to build a mid-sized cabin or house. The land has a creek that goes through it and one unpaved road that leads to it. I am looking for advice on where to start. First i need to start drafting ideas of what i want really and...
  4. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I am fortunate in that we are retired and home much of the time, by choice. That gives my family much more leeway in the way we conduct our lives, we aren't out "running the roads" a lot. :) We have a bit of land, garden, can foods, my husband still hunts every winter, fish abound in our area...
  5. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hello, This is my first post on this forum but long time lurker. My girlfriend and I have decided its a good idea to have at least 1 week's worth of emergency supplies. Right now we already keep a weeks worth of food in the pantry so I have added to that. I was wondering if someone could...
  6. General Discussion
    I have been a member of this site for a few years now. Since joining, it has become clear to me that so many "preppers" or "survivalists just don't get it or they miss the point of prepping. Prepping (IMHO) is not just for the end of the world catastrophes and there are many ways the S could...

  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    With the first of the year I always like to do a self review. While I can think of many things I need to do to be better prepared, I also did some thinking about the strategic weaknesses in my plans. So in your plans, is there a strategic weakness due to a bias in what situation you believe...
  9. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    Hey everybody. I'll be managing over 10,000 square feet of garden this year, and with a few hundred customers, things get confusing quick. So, I sat down at work today and threw this together. It is a simple excel work sheet that estimates planting, transplanting, sowing and harvest dates for...
  10. New Member Introduction
    Greetings fellow planners! New to this forum and new to blogging in general, but NOT new to thinking about survival scenarios and survival planning. I'll admit, I was influenced by "The Road Warrior" and have been secretly hoping for the end of civilization since that came out (1982?). Humor...
  11. Events, Connections and Get togethers
    I'm still considered a newbie on this board for obvious reasons. But, I would like to guage any interest for a gathering of people in the 4 states that I have listed. I have never kept it a secret I'm in Northwest Arkansas and that lends itself to a possible gathering of people from the 4...

    Two motto’s to live by, the Boy Scout motto “Always be prepared ” The Marines motto” Improvise, Adapt, Overcome“. We lived through one winter storm here in Kentucky in the early 90’s that left us with 18” of wet snow with temps in the 30’s and below and no power for 5 days. I had a...
  13. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I really didnt see a place for this, but I suppose it can fall under this topic of discussion. Just to give a little bit of a background I have been volunteering as an Assistant Scout Master for a local Troop. Which btw anyone can do that as long as you meet some basic requirements: 18+ years...
