That show dual survival is a joke. I watched the desert survival one. The naturalist dude did everything wrong. IIRC, He split the group(always a big no no) He walked without protection in the direct heat of the sun and ended up sick and vomiting his water because of that. He also should have known to take it easier due to the elevation until he acclimated to the lack of oxygen. The military trained guy was much smarter imo.

I think most folks are missing the point. I'm not interested in any 'relationship' but rather a simple partnership. Just like me and my dog. His ears are better than mine. Im taller and see farther. He can hear much better. I can identify various threats much better. As a team we work well. Partnering with a female works the same. Different thought patterns and different ideas when combined and filtered would yield better results. As long as the strengths and weaknesses are identified in advance, the natural strong one takes over at each point they excel in.

The show "Dual Survival" is a showcase of the natural shift and acceptance of the strengths of each person to lead both, as well as the way they stop to reason out things together.

I offer you my help. I have lotst of skills.

Surviving against all odds in this world together??

I always tell everyone that if SHTF, I will be hunkering down and holding Longwood Gardens in Eastern Pennsylvania. Any friend is welcome. Just ask for Nixie Nox.

HAH! Same here.. I'll be holding place if possible in Belleville Illinois.
Our "groups" are 2 though... neighborhood folks we know well that surround us and the mil/ex-mil at the base who work with the husband and are their own little group. Since I have the century old double brick zombie proof house ( hah) The mil wives are supposed to come here to me. Reason being, we have ALL experienced our spouses being locked down on base forever ( days sometimes) and sometimes for no discernible reason. Our meeting place is my home. Due to our placement on the New Madrid and the natural disaster mess we deal with here at times, we have come up with routes to get to me and the house... and the supplies. You know you have folks trust when they store some of their supplies in your stone basement.
Im the only RN in the bunch who has worked in a true trauma center and has had experience in mass casualty. Not with the neighbors because you "get what you got" but with the mil/ex-mil we have chosen pretty well IMO on skill and personality.. and loyalties. You take a HUGE risk in any case... fair or foul weather.. letting folks in on what you have and what you can do/who you are.

Here on ATS the line is sometimes blurry on who is into actual survival of an event and who is looking for an opportunity.. if that opportunity be a coup on locals ( civs to law enforcement/gov) or living in a movie. All I have to say to you who are meeting up is.. choose wisely and carefully. Never meet alone or believe what you read on the internet when considering meeting up. Surrounding you... Know who your people are and who your neighbors are and ask invasive questions.. specifically your neighbors. Know their backgrounds and medical issues.. know who they count as their friends because you might be dealing with them as well. Like it or not, you're stuck with them if there is a disaster.. and they arent always who you would choose to be with.

Just my opinion.. if youre in an apartment or multiple person housing.. get the hell out! Move now or bug out at the first sign of trouble or immediately after a disaster. Since our only real recent disaster was so televised... check out Katrina and the states effected ( wasnt JUST New Orleans) .. see where the trouble started and apply it to your situation. If you are in an apartment or whatever, may be the best thing to seek a group in your area here on ATS to meet up with.. safety in numbers of people you KNOW.

Thats my .02

If she's a babe, then we can hope Yellowstone goes up, cools down the Earth's atmosphere and offer to cuddle with her to keep her warm, yes?

So I thought that as a single woman survivalist myself, I would look to make a pact with someone of the opposite sex, like the ones that friends make about getting married if they have no one else, but with a buddy and for a survival scenario.

Where we are fully aware and have a plan for and include each others well being, survival, and skill. I thought that I would bring that to the table as there are many of us out there that have wonderful skills, yet could use and extra hand. Just thought I would share this idea.

Please add any you see that can work with this also.
Peace, NRE.

Single man here, just got out of a long realtionship because of differences in importance (she's totally wired-in to the matrix). I would love to meet up with single women of like minds, not necessarily to get into a relationship, but rather for friendship and for proof that you gals exist (CT's).

Personally, I don't believe the mentally ill, will necessarily be the ones to perish! Mental health problems can in fact carry you through problems that "normal" people couldn't cope with. Some of them think outside the box, they can be very stubborn, both traits are worse than useless in our civilised society, but very useful when society has disintergrated. Paronia would keep you safe, ensuring you trust no one, no need to adjust, or attempt to learn that the world has changed. Feeling threatened helps give extra strength, in situations where your life is in the balance, some with issues find "the strength of 5 men" when needed :-)

Also those with mental illness usually are labelled as such, as they have gone through the process of socialisation and not got it in the sense that civilised people do. The label often means only that they do not fit in with what our goverment believes is appropriate behaviour given the ideas they are attempting to instill in us.

I live by the sea :-) can grow veg, make soap and candles, knit, sew, bone animals, sure I could kill, skin and gut if my life depended on it. I can read engineering drawings and happen to have books with instructions on how to build electrial motors and all manner of other things, that are no longer fashionable. I can cope with basic petrol engines, (if I can find fuel in sheds etc) am fantastic at making meals out of nothing. Could right now, get chickens and bees if needed, and access land, A capable female! lol Also have adult sons with me, but I am not arrogent enough to assume that another person who could work hard, wouldn't be worth their weight in gold. Too many leaders together causes problems. Seems from this thread, I will be running southern england all alone! lol

Should we stockpile porn?

I am married, and the Frau Dr. is committed to prepping as well; so I am not involved in a direct way with this thread. But it got me thinking: pornography could be the new reserve "paper money" at the end of the world:

-Celibacy will be the wise short-term choice, to avoid pregnancy in the midst of crisis.

-People who have only recently met will be very slow to trust.

-Most people will have ceased bathing regularly, and will be showering only in the rain.

-availability of skin mags might lower the aggressive tendencies of young solo males.

-The articles will become coveted reading material, once most paperback books have been used for toilet paper.

-No new porn will be produced until population centers re-emerge, and the printing and video industries recover. Without a constant influx of new filth, the existing pictures will begin to increase rapidly in value.

-Plastic sleeves would keep the pages clean and allow the smut to be traded for valuables across vast networks of barter.

-Pornography isn't language-dependent, and so could function as an international trade currency, since is speaks the universal language of exploitation.

Why wouldnt you just make such a pact with your real life friends/neighbors, whom you already know, and supposedly trust and are in geographic proximity to?

Or are you only soliciting men from your geographic area? If not, what good does picking an internet buddy really do? If the S ever really HTF, how would you even contact one another if you didnt live close enough to walk over and say "hey."

Theoretically speaking, yes. Realistically speaking, not necessarily.

I disagree on the whole celibacy thing in the short to medium-term.
It sounds like a puritanical aspect that'll hold people back, having said that condoms will be a must-have for barter-trade so if folks in the UK want a hint I'd say go to your nearby GUM clinic and there's usually a supply of free ones in a dish at reception

Also 'The Pill' is also a very handy item for trade, I don't know what the longevity of those are and if they become toxic when their expiry passes...
