WA beginner prepper here

Post by seatard » Fri Jun 14, 2019 2:28 pm

Gday, beginner prepper here. Been a low key prepper for a few years but never got further than having a BOB. Don't have a lot of resources or assets atm due to life in general (marriage, renos and new born baby) but keen to expand and learn as I can. Have a good friend who is interested as well who is also in the same boat as me. One thing that I have been able to practice is my survival skills. Im an avid hunter and a self sufficient camper for weeks at a time with a wide range of skills. Current plan for when SHTF is to gather camping equipment and bug out to a farming property I know of or go bush and be self sufficient. Keen to meet other like minded people and share exp and knowledge.

Cheers

gday seatard, welcome.

great work with a bob, have you got anything prepped at home? i'd suggest the following:
fire extinguishers,
garden hoses that can reach all around your house,
change batteries in smoke detectors,
make paper and digital copies of important documents and photos,
have said copies and photos easily obtainable if you had to get out of the house in 30 seconds.

is your wife onboard?

Yeah I have 2 extinguishers. 1 is in passenger seat of my hilux and other is in my camping kit.
Have taps all round the house all with hoses.
Smoke detectors are hard wired to my power with back up batteries.
And all important documents are together in my firearms safe so they are quick to access
Wife isn’t too onboard with it atm but that’s because we have a 3 week old baby girl and her priorities are on her. But she knows if anything was to happen that she just has to follow me

thats good. start from there. i can see how having kids would trouble you about shtf events. i does for me too

can you clear trees that could potentially fall on your house? are you out of debt? do you have things insured?

That’s not an issue for me. I live in the suburbs so there is trees around but no risk of a fire. And everything is insured

Hi mate,
Are you north or south from Perth? Looking to chat with people who are north of Perth with hunting and camping on the mind for survival... Are you thinking of a bunker or hideout bush style? I've heard a lot of people say out bush would be best although my partner and I think the opposite due to bushfires and the threats toward 4 children making "out bush" not viable... I'm the maker/builder/repair person as my partner is more the hunter gatherer style. We're currently looking into medical needs and long term food storage with room to move. I don't think bush style would work south of Perth due to the unsustainable food source Vs the quantity of people there, lower population leads me to believe that natural food sources would be easier to maintain and source... What do you think?


When left is right and right is left... Which way is up?!?! Never ever never, give up!!!
