    Love your weather page steve


    I Jeanie, long time no see. I can relate to your Hades, same thing is happening here, my veggie garden is now just dried out stalks


    Hi everyone, :wave:

    I’ve been ‘off air’ for a while and then spent some time lurking in the shadows, I am now ready to have a bit of a chin-wag.

    It’s nice to see folk ‘clocking-in’ and making an effort to liven the place up a bit, things were getting so slow it was quite embarrassing I thought, and VERY boring.

    Well done Bel for stirring us all into gear. :clap:

    Nice to see you back Chezza, :wave: We all mellow with time, well most of us anyhoo. 🙂

    Mind you, I am still up for a mini rucus if I think a situation calls for it, but most genteely of course! :kiss: :kiss:



    Hey Bobbee, great to see you! :clap:

    :wave: Hi again! Been loving popping in lately 🙂



    my garden is thriving with the heat.

    I totally agree Rubicon, up to a point. I don’t think of myself as a “Daniel Boone’ type, though I am an 18th century Living Historian & a woodsman, so I guess there is some truth in that. However, many of us are very practicle & good at what we do. I have no illusions as to how hard it will/would be, living where we do, or in another wilderness area, but we are quite capable of leaving here at a moments notice if we find that we can not protect what we have, & we can survive long term in a wilderness situation with the skills & equipment we have.

    As you say, many will not make it, some like threedogs would rather die than use a gun to protect themselves & others. I however have a will to live, & a need to protect my family & friends. I have already been put in this position, so I have no illusions as to what it takes.

    I agree with you firearms selection, but I would not rely on these guns long term. I will keep these for protection only, not for hunting. My muzzle-loading guns are far better suited to long term survival, & the ammo is less expensive & sustainable. A Daniel Boone type I may be, but I am 66 years of age this year, & over 40 of those years spent living in the bush.

    Yes I will be very pleased to answer any questions people may have.

    Regards, Keith.
