  2. More Truth About Critical Cycles in Human History
  3. I've been made aware of the most effective manner of ensuring a fair way to enhance a group. Make a list with items to survive 2weeks to 3months. This list needs clothes/ water storage/ water purification/ food/ spices/ seeds/ garden space created & perennials medications/ first aid/ survival gear/ security items (perimiter/ personal/ hunting weapons/ ammo/ maintenance gear/ caches (to me one month can be held in house and following months to be cached in one month increments) Only fools put all their eggs in one basket! Power/ gas/ construction materials/ comfort items/ hygene/ dental/ books/ safe storage etc. The amount of time you are allowed to stay at a members home is based on the amount of supplies on hand. 2 weeks supplies equals a two week stay provided you do your part with chores/ jobs and always act for the benefit of the MAG. This step along with the trust stage is the most essential part to a long lasting MAG

    Get the ball rolling

    A very important part of a community is schooling and I believe that conventional public schooling is a terrible thing to put children/young adults through. I know, there are exceptions but even with those exceptions, I believe we could be doing a WHOLE LOT BETTER. So, I am looking for people who homeschool or teach to build this part of our community. I need your feedback on the best ways to go about building clubs and forums so that others can learn ways to better school their children in our communities. The first method that I think of is a shared schooling program. This would be where members find other members in their area or online that could build clubs and start teaching groups of children. An example would be: You find 7 families in your area, you form a club to organize (times/dates, curriculum, field trips, etc), 1 day out of every week all of the children in those families meet up with one of the parents or tutors to learn from them. This makes it so that each family only has to "homeschool" for 1 day out of every week and can spend some time focusing on what their curriculum will be for that week. What are your thoughts? How would this look in forums and/or in clubs? Should the forums focus on regions or should they focus on different types of teaching methods or both? What methods or regions should we start with?

    Update...finally

    We want more!
  8. A Mutual assistance/aid group, or MAG, are groups of people who band together to provide essential support in the event of a natural disaster or other emergency or catastrophic event, or just to help each other build each other's self-sufficiency/reliance as a team. There are many ways to set up a MAG. Here are a couple of options, I am sure as our community grows we will come up with more to add to the list: A designated BOL (Bug Out Location) that all members of your MAG fall back to in case of an emergency that affects all members of the group. Some MAG's are formed for everyday problems (like the need to build a new greenhouse). The group gets together one day and helps one of its members with their project. For groups 6+ in members. Do this my geographic location as much as possible. Assign your members to small groups that are close together geographically. Choose a meeting place (and a backup meeting place) for each of those groups. Each of these members will be assigned a skill set to learn and if possible, master. This makes it possible to have a medic, a navigator, and a security specialist (just examples) all meeting up in the same area together when SHTF. Then the goal is to reach a designated BOL where all of the smaller groups will then meet up at with the rest of the MAG. Have an agreement between each member to store resources at each other's homes. If something goes terribly for one person or for many people in the group, you can rely on each other and the resources you have stored at the other locations. Making sure your MAG is responsive and effective means you also need to make sure it’s formed on a firm foundation and that you have built trust with the other members of your group.

    Favorite Games

    Those are games that go one for a long period of time. You play one "game" which lasts about 1-3 hours and that was just the first step in the game... there might be 70-300 steps. Usually, these are games where you are leveling characters or ships or whatever up and getting items for your characters as you play through each step.

    How To Successfully Grow Potatoes In Tires

    I'm going to do this with 1 or 2 x 6 this year. Had to do a lot of diging to find em last year. Check out my club for more pictures!
  24. This is exactly why we created ThriveThrough. We want people to band together and build prepared communities. Why waste time and energy doing it alone? We could be working together towards the same goals at 2-100 times the speed and efficiency. All it takes is someone stepping up and saying, "Let's do this"! Thank you @ProtectorCdn for being one of those people. I hope this will inspire others to do the same.
  25. I was speaking with my wife why I created this club. "This can't be it!" I said to her. Work lots of overtime, activities 4 days a week, help out your community and almost no time to prepare/ advance on my raised garden/ back to eden garden for my perennials. Enjoying living a far off wish that always escapes you. I took me almost one whole summer to create my garden when three guys could have done it in 2-3 days. Their lots of people with no land or no involved community like me. Why can't we just help/ learn from each other and live that better life. Gardening/ canning/ preparedness/ security/ skills need to be taught. It looks easy on youtube; you try it and one just do this would have allowed you to complete that first pressure canning successfully. 3-4 GSD families could be well prepared in 1/10th the time of. One family giving it their all. Having fun and building community to boot. The results would be less stress/ increased productivity and real freedom because most families won't be prepared by themselves because of lack of skills or just life taking over. I'm guilty of this too. Hopefully my journey will help your push to acheive your preparedness. This only works if everyone benefits! Let's say you live in Toronto/ montreal/ Ottawa and join a MAG I'm apart of. Everyone would help everyone else achieve 3 months of preparedness. Not always easy to store 3 months of preparedness in an apartment but if everyone helps it can be done. If you can't give so much time; then you barter or give $ so other can do your part. MAG'S support eachother businesses so the revenue of all should increase. Also say if you plant 30 fruit trees on my land that were protected, had automatic watering and you came to improve that homestead once in a while. 3/4s of the fruit would be yours. Maybe it's equal shares for all perennials on all properties. All I know is if you don't give a lot; Nobody's going to give you anything. We can it together and feed the whole MAG plus it's family's. The sky's the limit when a MAG is dedicated to providing for itself and it's safety. Theirs another option that's frankly more actionable. We meet people online and we feel that we know them. My buddy from Westshieldoutpost.ca is like this. I'd already have started a traditional MAG if he wasn't in Manitoba but in a pooling MAG he'd be perfect. Great guy/ Nice family/ freedom, hard working man wanting to protect his family same as mine. (By the way encourage good people's businesses so they can better their communities) They give you good prices and everyone wins. We meet once or twice a year because of distance. Once for a week or two is perfect to GSD and have campfires in the evening's. We start a fund. Say we're 3 people. All 3 must sign off on the reason for distributing said funds. Sickness/ jobloss/ preparedness/ land. The amount and reason must be oked by all. If you know a way to have money held until it's needed let me know. Maybe a treasurer I'd voted in. Maybe everyone holds their own money and funds are transfered when voted in. Any constructive additions to this? Don't give up! Lots of good people are looking for a real MAG like me.

    Wanted Clubs

    Feel free to also suggest people you would like to see in these clubs. I would be happy to reach out to those suggested and get them in here. Homeschoolers - a general club, that is not location specific, about homeschooling. Regional homeschooling clubs - This would most likely spawn from the general homeschoolers clubs and would be clubs for homeschoolers to start in a specific region where others in that region can find and work with each other. MAG's (mutual aid groups) - @ProtectorCdn started an excellent club in this area and a post all about MAG's. Home/Emergency Medical Intentional Community Building Governance Planning Locating Herbs and Remedies - I think @Lynn would be a great addition to this one. Earthworks Soils Wood Builders - @BearPaw would be great for this one or a wood art club Steel Builders Blacksmithing Earthships Aquaponics and Rainwater Harvesting Gray and Wastewater Treatment Work Trade Housing Exchange Frugal / Finance Business (Entrepreneurs Club?) Marketing Strategy Residual Income Business Support Network Consultation Livestock Sheep Horses Dogs Poultry etc etc Seed Exchange Food Food Preservation Diet - Paleo recipes exist but needs someone to get it going strong Home Brewing Outdoor Sports Wilderness Survival Alternative Energy - Steven Harris? Book Clubs
