    Yeh Spanners I saw it once and thought it typical over the top Yankee carry on and then I thought about what I have up in the attic and realized that in tlhe event of a disaster or the collapse of society my place would be a good place to be (fresh spring water, animals in the paddock and all my bush camping and cooking gear). Not to mention enough ammo to hold of a small army. So on reflection I realized I was a prepped without being conscious of it.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Is this on Sky? I think it's good to have a back up, but not go over the top.

    I like it, sure you have to wade through quite a bit of paranoia and Americentricisim, but there are some good tips there, Pandemic so they say seems to be the most likely to occur, (Very likely) as opposed to Polar shift or the super volcano..............

    I'm waiting on the zombie episode, which should be full of relevant info!!!!!

    I remember after the Christchurch Earthquakes, my brother and I seemed to be the only people around that we prepared. I was interview by CBC radio about digging a toilet in my back yard

    Yes, Christchuch certainly taught a couple of us here at work a thing or two about preparation for emergency response. September we had less than 2 hours warning and we were on a helicopter from New Plymouth on our way to Christchurch. It was myself and another guy who also hunts a bit that were best prepared for our week long "two day" excursion. February, we had learnt a few things from September - sanitation, food, water, cash, satelite phone... It was only after February that what we learnt got written down as procedure.

    Engineering assistance and assessment in getting one of our clients wharf equipment, cross country pipeline and distribution facility back up and running.
    Playing round under the wharf in Lyttelton when we had a big aftershock come through scared the crap out of us. Our little punt couldn't get us out from under there fast enough! Walking the pipeline over the Port Hills with all the rocks/boulders that had come down was also "interesting"

    I used to run the pipeline every day before I joined the army

    Anyone know how I might be able to upload an MP3 so you guy could laugh at my Caniwi accent (even the interviewer chuckles at me!)?? the other Canadians here might recognise the radio host, Tony Doucette.
