    Hi all,

    Since Matt Savinar appears to have taken down LATOC (Life After the Oil Crash) forum I'm missing a fix of survival hints and tips and this seems like a nice place.

    I'm in the north of the UK and have been prepping as much as time and finances allow. I'm always on the lookout for good ideas and hope I might be able to share some of my own.

    Won't be anything on firearms sadly.

    Welcome. Is LATOC down for good?

    edit: Just read the announcement. Any reasons why?

    As far as I can tell LATOC is down for good, just what I picked up from a couple of comments on 'The Oil Drum' Drumbeat. I think the gist was technical issues, server overload, etc. were getting him down.

    It might well be worth be worth setting up a sub-forum for peak oil, or other issues which could result in all the knowledge here getting use for real.

    Matt Savinar did have a brief sentence at his blog that he thought too many people were using the forum as an escape and were not doing anything to actually prepare. He may have been discouraged in his outlook as some of his mods were going full steam ahead with homesteads, and certainly doing their best to influence others towards long term sustainable living, or at least reduced standards of living. Also, he said it was costing him 250/month for the site, and 3,000 a year is a lot.
