Re: Are The Global Warming Unbelievers Prepared To Risk the Quality of Life of Their Grandchildren?

It's so much simpler and painless for each individual person not to believe that we humans are destroying our planet's ecosystem. What's the alternative ...an awakened mind that painfully sees Earths natural environment being stressed to destruction? How much easier it would be to walk around with m...

Stupid Nonsense Posts

I know that I for one, get putoff this site when I log on and see stupid nonsense posts and comments. This has happened a few times since joining. I take my prepping seriously and times running out, which is why I joined Australian Preppers. Do any of you other preppers here feel the same way?

Blood Sucking Leeches

After a leeching incident last weekend on my new prepping property, I decided to do some research into these little blood suckers. What I've found out, blew me away and I thought it useful to share with you all here for medical survival knowledge. Leeches only need one feed to last them a year. A fa...

Thanks for that Grumpy. I just did some checking ...what a disaster for a prepper. Out with the ham and in with the cb for me now.

Re: What You Need To Know About Eating Bracken Fiddle heads!!

The NSW Government put out a really good summary fact sheet about bracken fern nearly 10 years ago. Primefact 730 is worth reading.

Re: Australian Survival & Preppers Blog.

I've been reading up on your blog Keith. It's wonderful that you are sharing your knowledge and skills for those of us who want to learn, especially the old ways of doing things. I'll be purchasing your book Primitive Firelighting.

Re: General Chat

I've come to realise that as a prepper, I need to develop an awareness of false preppers. All the skills, knowledge and materials collected for survival can be lost, just by being suckered in by others who aren't prepping themselves; but rather make it their survival strategy to seek us out and take...

Re: Share Your Comms Knowlege

I'm interested in going down the path of ham radio communications. I've read up on obtaining an operating licence and where my nearest group is. I'm hoping that others on here are involved in this type of communication and prepared to share their knowledge and skills.

Re: Influenza Pandemic

This is the main disaster that our government agencies are organised for. I used to be part of a regional recovery unit. I learnt so much from it; enough to know that our country will fare much better than most, because of our geographic, vaccine mobilisation and readiness of our population to pitch...

Re: EMP

Thanks for the info Keith, I've watched all those videos. I'm thinking that I might look at having a large machinery shed built, which is high enough to stack a couple of shipping containers inside it. I could even put in a false wall, so it's not obvious what's behind it. I should have no permit is...
