WANTED-AWAKE, AWARE, COMPASSIONATE HUMANS INTERESTED IN BRAINSTROMING ABOUT CONTINGENCY PLANS FOR POTENTIAL INCOMING CALAMITY?
I got involved in all this survival stuff because i had what I consider to be a spiritual experience after watching Doomsday 2012 in Feb. of 2007. When I saw the alignment of the Galactic plane, earth and Sun, I had a feeling come over me(it came from someplace else other than my brain) and it shocked me. The voice said OMG this is true. So i have taken the 2012 thing very seriously since then and have planned in a big way for what I believe could be coming.

Having not known me personally before most of you do not know what an extreme behavioral change occurred as a result of my above experience. It was totally unlike me to do what I did which was move from NJ to VA buy a small farm and prepare. Most of my friends thought I had totally lost it as this was back in 2007. It is now 2012 and things are much different now. However, most of my friends in spite of be a lot more nervous still do not get it. Where or not my preparations will do any good I do not know. But I believe it was necessary to try. I did it because I believed something big is coming and felt that since I knew I had a responsibility to prepare in an attempt to help others as well as my self.

I was wondering if others have had similar experiences? If so or if you are simply concerned would you like to brain storm about ideas you have about what you believe we have to worry about and what we can do to try and deal with them.

The main problem I see is that there are not enough people who are awake and by the time they wake up it is going to be too late.

I truly believe that if humans were in the right mindset and able to come together for the greater good we could pose a formidable resource for what we will be facing. The problem is no one is on the same page.

Here are a few of the things I believe will be most pressing to deal with.

1.) I believe ECONOMIC COLLAPSE is inevitable when this occurs food delivery and economic dislocations will follow.

2.) There will be a total failure of the emergency responder system, as i was told by someone close to FEMA that it will be your neighbors who will come to you aid not any one else.
I can imagine when TSHTF for real the entire Government will be no where to be found.

3.) Severe weather conditions will disrupt shelter, clean water, food and sanitation. Famine is already becoming a reality with the failure of so much of even our GMO crops like corn and soy beans. We much come up with ingenious and original ideas of how to feed ourselves. Things like mushrooms, wheatgrass, sprouts etc.(easy to grow, can be grown indoors, need little sunlight). We have depleted our farm lands of nutrients and a new and inventive way to replenish the soil is required. Permaculture is a great idea if weather permits. However, it may be necessary to grow things indoor in subterranean type greenhouses if weather and radiation is a problem.

I have heard that winds may exceed 250 mph, however, Buckmister Fuller may have a simple solution to this problem.

4.) Radioactivity due to the failure of nuclear plants esp. if New Madrid goes. However, I have been checking the cpm in VA and NJ and must say they are very low. which is a good thing so far.

OK I have merely listed a few ideas. I would really appreciate it if other concerned, compassionate humans would also contribute as there is no limit to what us humans can do when we come together for the common good, IMHO.

So what type of problems to you see us have to deal with and what new and inventive solutions can you come up with.

Come on please let's try and get a dialogue going. I know a lot of you have feelings that something is up. If we start thinking and discussing solutions now perhaps it would be helpful to all involved. A few ratings would help if you would be so kind. What ever you think it deserves.

Wow, Grefey, I've bumped into a number of your posts in recent months and am I correct in thinking that remark is totally out of character for you? Or am I wrong on that? That seems to speak of serious stress.

Some months ago, I commented on a thread we were both posting in that we seemed to have a similar take on things and invited you to contact me. The best case is that perhaps you didn't see that particular post of mine because you didn't comment after I had said that.

I am isolated and alone because I can't find people that share my perspective, and given all that is happening, am too busy trying to stay on top of the unfolding situation and can't spend time now trying to get erstwhile friends onboard.

Although I am rightfully as paranoid as anyone else, I have posted a number of times here trying to network with people, with little success, because I know there is the potential for safety in numbers. I am located in Boston, do not feel this is the venue to go into more particulars, but as we get closer to fan blades and excrement, the flavor of this thread might finally compel someone in a situation similar to mine to reach out. A sounding board would be a major step ahead, someone with the mindset of covering each other's backs would be the ultimate.

I would have thought there would have been a box full of replies to this.

For my part, should I survive the initial catastrophe/trauma I intend on going it alone, nomad style for as long as possible.

I am prepared in my mind and body and work on these things on a regular basis.

Should I make it through the initial situation and not be left a dribbling catatonic state then I am good to go.

At some point I will have to find some kind of fledgling society/group, I don't think it is possible to get by for any great length of time (years) alone, we can only do so much on our own, for example, how do we correctly remove a painful and potentially life threatening (through infection) tooth?

Also going it alone means having to live hand to mouth, if for example I cannot be bothered to go trapping today, that also means I don't eat today.

When finding a stable group (there may be many groups that one would need to 'check out' before deciding/being allowed to stay) I would be looking for one that I could contribute to in whatever means I could, I don't want to go into personal detail about myself to much on here, I know the knowledge I have about some things is very valuable to both the loner and especially the group.

Give me the tools and I will finish the job is the kind of attitude I have.

For me, flexibility is the key, physically, mentally, spiritually, societal and so on.

About 2 years ago we really got freaked out about all this shit...got food ,bug out bags...have a welding fab shop already but bought a back hoe.bob cat stuff like that. We have converted gasoline to wood for a vehicle..wood boiler for the house on and on and on..
Now we just make sure our house is in order..that you could last a month or two with out too much trouble..papers and info together...
After the cabal is taken down or out which ever...things will get dicey but you also manifest your future by your actions today..
I am no longer freaked out...but we have what we can in a plan...and if the shit hits the fan come out swinging .

You are right I was a little pissed and behaved badly(actually I like the french Canadians as I find them very warm people, but stick with their own). But when I am being sincere and serious in an attempt to stimulate some much needed discourse over something that is as serious as a heart attack I don't expect people to behave in such a counterproductive manner. Oh well. I never said I didn't have a temper.

I am originally from NJ and am presently here. I can tell you that I know many good people here that I wish would wake up but that is not happening and I fear for them. When TSHTF I will be high tailing it to VA where I have all that is necessary except some sincere, good hearten and like minded people. I am really not looking forward to dealing with whatever by myself. I agree with you Boston will be no better than NJ. So if you like drop me a message with your email address and we can talk more.

I agree it is TMI but I look at it this way. This is who I am and thank god I finally figured it out. I will no longer be stifling myself to appease others because that a good way to never find out who you really are. I don't, ever speak with forked tongue. I do however reserve the right to be wrong or change my mind.

I think the biggest problem we are all facing right now is that we are incapable of truly being responsible for ourselves because that would entail dealing with our dark sides and who would want to do that. Well, I would say either people who want to survive or at least leave planet earth in a higher spiritual state than they are presently in.

I got into some prepping after I had a dream where I saw hydroponics growing large amounts of food indoors. I did not know what I had seen so I googled until I figured it out. It felt like it meant something. But I barely garden and have no means of setting ths up. I do think it is a wonderful way of growing veggies though. Ever since I have worried about a famine.

Foxy, like I said before and have heard others I respect say when TSHTF FEMA, DHS and our fearless leaders will be nowhere to be found. They may send out some drones to scope out the situation or take out people who get too close to TPTB underground bunkers, but I would not be expecting any assistance from them. No we will be left to our own devices and that is why I believe it is so important for us to go within ourselves asap and deal with all the inner stuff that keeps us so alienated from one another. I had a therapist who called it our dark side and we all have one. He believed that if humanity did not deal with it prior to the big event it would make survival that much more difficult.

I know for myself that I have recently realized that I must truly purify myself of old ways that no longer serve me and that means becoming totally responsible for myself and my actions. No more excuses, no more dependence on unhealthy meds. no more dependence on Uncle Sams or aliens coming to the rescue. It means dealing with the things that dis-empower you and eliminating them. I have several that I continue to work on. I believe the Universe is asking us to make a huge evolutionary leap into a higher evolved human and only those who are willing to jump into the river willingly no matter what the terms are and go with the flow will be the ones that will make it.

Money will be of no importance only the desire to work together for the greater good.

You should look into growing wheatgrass, sprouts, beans, etc. most can be grown indoors with little light and are high in much needed nutrients. I believe one could survive one such foods stuffs for a long while. You should check it out.

You could say I actually became aware sometime around 2004 although my initial waking up happened a few years prior and if I think about it longer, some of the recognition of our plight in this world was always present albeit not so consciously thought of. For awhile, I made efforts to plan for the collapse, stockpiling food and such, putting together bug-out bag supplies, mapping where I would go, collecting volumes that would be useful in a post-apocalyptic environment, etc. Then at some point, I came to the conclusion that there was simply nothing I could do that would be adequate since there was no way to know which direction things would go and what would ultimately be our undoing. To try to prepare for every scenario is a fool's errand. I finally accepted that preparation in a physical sense was not the proper answer. Survival is based on being able to excel within any given scenario with whatever is at hand. Now, I just make an effort to learn the techniques that would be most useful in a hostile environment. I grew up on a farm in Virginia with the people around me being the types that made do with what we had available. We hunted, farmed, built things, worked with metal, made things, solved problems as they came up with whatever was laying around - in short, we mostly lived the older ways that modern society left behind. So in the end, I feel that the greatest thing anyone can do to be ready for whatever is coming, is to simply prepare mentally to face the future without fear or anxiety. To know how to do those little things that we take for granted now because they can so easily be obtained effortlessly from your favorite carry-all store. To be able to think on your feet and have common sense, something that just isn't so common anymore.

I live in the S.W. part of VA and people there certainly make do with what they have, which is a good thing as I believe they will fair much better at survival than people in urban areas. I agree spiritual evolution and acceptance and lack of fear is a major factor in survival and also a good thing to have for a peaceful departing from planet earth if it should come to that.

I just feel that a group of like-minded people who could work together well and all have some special areas of expertise would enhance the groups chances for survival as we would have more brain power to draw from. But the group would need to get together soon to brainstorm about issues that are popping up all the time. In addition, there would be noting better than a group of people who could work together for the common good of all. Are there any humans like this out there? If so drop me a line.

SW Virginia is where I am from, with older generations of my family also hailing from West Virginia. I left awhile ago, because at the time all I saw was the farmlands being sold off after the farmers died, to people from the north who turned them into horrible little middle class "neighborhoods", no offense towards yourself intended. With that, the subsequent loss of community became the norm. It depressed me immeasurably and made a lot of other people angry. Ended up moving to the most unlikely of places but have found that down here, community is still alive and well, even for interlopers like myself.

I've talked to folks a few times over the years about precisely what you are proposing but each time, the idea peters out within a relatively small space of time. People have forgotten the basic rules of how society managed to grow as it has, what it means to actually care about the welfare of their neighbor and how that, in turn, secures their own needs when problems surface. I applaud you for your call to like-minded individuals but not so sure you'll have a lot of response given the inherent issues I have already mentioned. Folks back home can be a little funny too and very close-knit, not to say they won't accept you but more that you have your work cut out for you in making in-roads into those groups, especially when it comes to those who are capable of the stuff you'd want help with. If things went bad, it would not be unlikely I would pack up the kids and get back up that way or to one of the other rural areas where friends and family have landed. Anyway, if you have interest in continuing a correspondence, I'd be happy to keep in touch with you and continue the discussion. If not, I wish you luck in your search.

Hey AC i hear you about this area of VA. People are definitely close knit and in some places are still fighting the civil war. They are not friendly to yankees buying up there property and I do understand. They ahve been in there own depression ever since the 70's when the textile and furniture industries moved offshore.

Let me tell you that coming from the North I felt i was leaving the predatory, get over mentality to go to a much more pleasant rural atmosphere. Boy was I wrong. I thought I was pretty street wise and able to handle myself when it came to business. I have never been raked over the coals the way I was in VA. It was truly an eye opening experience. People there are extremely hungry(esp. when it comes to outsiders) and despite the fact that it is in the Bible Belt and everyone there is a Christian, I believe many are only Christian in name only. Cause some of the ones I meant could have given the guidios from Newark a run for their money(and I mean this only in a humorous sense). I would be very interested in discussing things with you at greater length. So in spite of my better judgement I will give you a secondary email address where you can contact me. As I know of no other way to get the job done. bugseycorgie@yahoo.com Hope to here from you.

I do however reserve the right to be wrong or change my mind.

I wasn't saying you are coming up off too much info, although that is definitely something to think about, what I was trying to say is that other people would be reluctant to share what they're about. The paranoia promoted by certain parties makes it very difficult to network.

I've always been a very spiritual person, and have had a lot of experiences in my meditations regarding disasters. I've never had to endure anything so major as a natural disaster, thankfully. Only econmic disaster! Ugh. I grew up on a farm, and after living in more urbanized locations for several years, I finally came up with a plan to get back into the country, and am now living at least 3 hrs from the nearest large city, tucked away in the mountains. I've been gardening, which is now starting to pay off. Also, I try to educate others about health, GMOs sustainable living, gardening, etc.
My opinion is, don't let fear or paranoia set in, but rather be proactive, as you seem to be doing. If you are self-sustainable, and able to rough it when necessary, you've already increased your chances of survival if something happens, and if nothing happens, you are an example of a more sustainable way of life, which, if adopted by the masses, could minimize the impact of economic woes in the future. We as a society have become too complacent, too lazy, too dependant on corporations to supply us with our every need. I'm inspired by all the grassroots movements towards self-sustainability, as well as the country folks' ability to craft goods, to work with their hands, to grow their own food, hunt, fish, etc.

Keep up the good work. Keep being an inspiration to others. It's high time for people to come together for the greater good. Educating others is the first step.

I don't know what is coming down the road. I feel like maybe I should prep, but another part of me says not to. If we all look out for ourselves or a small group of people then yes, there will be a cataclysm. We have to remember that we are all of the same stuff, animated with divine spirit. I will help anyone, anywhere and everywhere I can, no matter their beliefs, values, religion, etc.. Helping others is helping myself.
