Any preppers in Northern Europe?
Hey everyone

So after viewing that elenin vid and seeing the time frame we are entering I have upped my food stores and preparedness.

I would love to know if there where any other northern europeans preping and most of all if you have found any books on wild food for norther europe?

Americans are so spoiled for choice its a little hard for the rest of us!

I grew up in Australia so my bush-craft knowledge doesn't work now that I live in France.

I have a handful of books of wild food but nothing I feel 100% is right for my area.

I have young kids so bugging out is not really an option.


anyone else trying to prepare quietly?

If you don't mind what are your plans? Bugging out or staying put? Do you have others to carry or are you single?

What are your thoughts on hunting and foraging and places where you plan to do that?

My next prep purchase will be a topographic map book of france. Moneys tight at the moment though and I hope I have time to get it.


Good luck with your preps!

If anyone knows about a good wild food book for northern europe chime in!

No because Elenin doom is BS. And if any doom vid you watch makes you react like that, you might as well start building your bunker so that you'll be prepared your whole life.

But TBH, if TSHTF, the best skill you could develop are social skill because you'll need to join a community.


People on GLP always imagine doom madmax-style with guns and bunkers. That's so American :)

If TSHTF in Europe, join a village in the countryside and try to be a part of a community. That's the best way to maximize your chances. Human is a social animal, not a solitary one.

I have two children and a wife to care for. We have got a caravan in the Donegal hills that will keep us more than safe.

We have also been learning a lot about eating wild.

[link to www.wildmanwildfood.com] is a good source, along with others. I would suggest that you check that out.

Be safe and I hope you get sorted.

To the poster saying about ELENIN Doom. I am not readying for that, but get real, shit is going to hit the fan.

Locals would know WAY better than you where to hunt, where to gather food, how to find supplies.

You on the other hand, would be lost.


Your best chances are to learn proper French and make some friends in the countryside (far from big cities).

Check my other posts about how to properly prepare for survival ;)

Survival American style = guns and hunting and canned food etc because the country is so big.

On the other hand in Europe there are villages everywhere. You need to learn how to be a part of a community.

Re: Any preppers in Northern Europe?
For the poster of ELENIN NON-DOOM

I am only increasing my awareness duing this time period. if there is any truth to elenin it will arrive during this time.

I am not afraid nor anxious.


I just think its a good moment to tighten things (which are by no means prepper perfect).


In the long run its only YOU that can decide when it is time to react.

Thankyou everyone else for your posts and the links.

I already live in a small community in France however we are only 45mins from Paris so I realise I might have to move if the SHTF.

Hi Be Aware, I am just outside of Paris.

I am not afraid (thats why I have preps.)

I just see scense in what the recent elenin vid said. I have no fear though.

No fear of being judge crazy for preparing either.

If anything, you can come to my place ;)

Just find a village and a community. Many villages in Europe have anything they need for living in autonomy:

-a source of water
-fields
-herds

Heck in some places there are still houses without electricity. Comfort is overrated.

You have been wonderful in your giving nature. I do live in a close nit community surrounded by forest and crops and a river running right through it all.

Also lots of caves etc.


Its wonderful to hear about another prepper in my part of the world!

I remember reading stories about the first settlers to america who died of survey and the like while they lay atop of pine bark that could of saved them.

I grew up in the bush in AUS so I know how to fit into a country community.

Its only I am seeking now to educate myself on the wild food that surrounds me NOW, which is so different than anything in Australia.

My community is mostly older people with a lot of memories from the 2 world war and stortages. They all grow their own food and hunt and butcher.

But even with all this knowledge they suffered during the occupation, so you have to have skills and be prepared.

Not afraid. Prepared.

Re: Any preppers in Northern Europe?
im in sweden, i will try to find somewhere underground for protection against the agitated suns and gamma rays for when the magnetic field could go down, and bring with me food and stuff. if we survive elening, we need to get to higher ground, because the dwarf star behind it will cause super high tidal waves, so we'll need a cave at very high altitude or underground

here in Portugal we are vunlerable if there is a big tsunami, but tsunamis are only lethal on land, on the sea you cant feel them , so i guess the best place to be during a cataclysm is on the Ocean, you are in france, and afaik , france is full of forests and farmlands, just go away from the coast :) and as somebody stated before, Social Skills are the most important survival tool, because we are community monkeys.
And the side skills are: making food, know what to eat and what not to eat, have a weapon , and lots of batteries! and a tent , firt aid kit. I will get a Boat with some people i know.. we are Preparing for the worst, but we are living our lives normal... because we are just alert of a thing, but not sure if that thing is going to happen! but better stay ready!

and btw, i think its not a good idea to try to form Large groups of people, and its a even WORST idea to try to get ppl from other countries together.. i know europe is small, but its not so small... it would take some good days to get to another country... since i cant see myself going to an Airport during a possible cataclysm.
Always stay in groups of no more than 10 people, or else it will start to have conflicts sooner or later.
And then follow your instinct! and remember... The sun sets at around WEST and Rises in EAST, and at night you can see the north Star.... so the best GPS actually is the one Nature gives us!

peace!

I'm in a 12th century ex-templar chateau in the vezere valley, the valley of anient cromagnon man. deep in southwest france. 4ft thick stone walls, natural springs, my own stretch of river, caves and tunnels that go nearly a mile deep. more mushrooms, fruits and nuts to forage than you could believe, its been this way for 50,000 years. I create my own electricity and I've got a large stockpile of fuel and food and other important supplies. 30,000 bottles of wine, three years of dried tobacco crops. I'm also tight with the local farming mafia who love to barter tax free at the moment so i imagine they will be user friendly if i need anything in a doom scenario. 30 hectares of wood, crops and livestock. watchtowers at all points of compass. even some defences and strategic chokepoints on my land to deal with invaders. lots more that i dont want to post here.

Food, water, water filtration, water storage.

Live in the countryside with a large garden, got seeds. Farm next door has chickens, and cows.

Am I bugging out with 4 children? Not likely. Got camping equipment, just in case.

Did and learned what I could until now. Need to stock up on fire wood though.

I am like you, no bugging out with my young children.

I have supplies and will be the first to unite my village to a united community.

I would like to know more about wild foods and such to be able to bring more to the society I live in.

I feel that I have been called to live where I do, and before I lived in an ideal location in australia, except for the sea.

Just to add, the reason I am accepted in my community is because I am 'country'. I understand old mates and the respect they deserve. And even though i am not a native French I am accepted because of this.
