    The vibe I get here is some people started this community or forum about survival. And know very little about it. brokor had a post on whats on your wrist (watch). Why do you need a watch to survive. In survival mode, time does not matter. Sun up sun down, night sleep and sun work.

    It just seems like a bunch of people made this forum and called themself experts.
    Brokor quoted dave (the fraud) canabury's 4 C's. Dave lied about everything. Discovery fired him because he lied. Your not an expert if you say you are. It is when others say you are good at something, that you are. If your blowing your own horn your just full of hot air. Haha..but that is just me.
    I fingure after this Brokor something to dismiss this. Cool keep your little kingdom dude.

    You have the "Vibe" Wrong..... The Founders, were a bunch of Folks, that got tired of the forum they were on, and it's Political, BS... So they got together, and built their own Forum.... They have grown, and changed, over they years, as have we ALL... You to will change, as you gain more experience, in life... We have MANY Monkeys, that are True Survivalists, as well as MANY Monkeys, that are True Prep'ers... as well as MANY Monkeys, that are still learning just what those Titles actually MEAN.... You will NOTICE, that I am NOT one of the Founders... as I didn't find these folks, till a while after the founding of the forum.... But Prep'ing goes back 5 Generations in my family.... and I have survived, in the Alaskan Bush, for 35+ Years, and in the Cascade Mountains, for 2 Years, with just what I carried on my back.... back when I was about your age...

    MOD Note: I inadverdently Deleted this thread... While flxing a Duplicate thread... And now have fixed that...

    Canterbury "embellished" his resume, he did not lie about having skills. And that has been made a very OBVIOUS fact, because of all of the video of him doing stuff.

    I don;t know if you are aware of this, but a person with skill, has to say that they have skills, in order to sell them. That's basic.

    I would also say that you are wrong about the vibe. This is a place where..."preparedness/SHTF minded" people get together to talk about things that matter to them, in a social forum. Those discussions can take "off topic" (we have a sub forum DEDICATED to this) directions from time to time, BUT, the core of the forum is still "not kicking it once the shit hits."

    I want to welcome you from the great State of Jefferson. We've been known to have some lively discussions and you are most welcome to join in. Your opinion is valued as we all have opinions and sometimes may disagree. That's the way in life and on the interwebz as well. Take a good look around, read some threads and do a bit of research. I suggest that may be a better approach than showing up and pissing in everybody's corn flakes.

    "I fingure after this Brokor something to dismiss this. Cool keep your little kingdom dude."

    This is a personal attack and you, sir, are out of line.

    None of the people here come to argue as we get enough of that in the real world. We come here to learn, trade/get ideas and have discussions and, yes, debates, with like minded people. Debates not arguments!

    "It just seems like a bunch of people made this forum and called themself experts."
    By my count you have not even been here 3 weeks yet you have everyone figured out and they know nothing and you know it all or you know it better. Great. Start your own forum. I am sure after people see your stunning know-it-all attitude and sour disposition they will rush to your wondrous forum by the thousands! Good luck.

    @timberwolf50, I don't think any of us began this forum with the idea we were experts, too many of those in the world already. What we did was create a place where we could share what we know and learn from the knowledge shared by others. If you came here looking for a forum of "experts" you landed on the wrong planet. We're all just a bunch of people who realize that none of us knows everything and none of us are too proud to admit it. By the way, I haven 't worn a watch in over 25 years myself but I've never thought unkindly of those who do.

    I'm a pretty evenly balanced dude...I have a chip on each shoulder....give TW some time, and he'll find his second chip too. ;)

    One thing I have found, TW50, is not to take anyone here too seriously, least of all oneself. :D

    @timberwolf50 I am unsure why you keep targeting @Brokor in your posts. He is a very smart person, who has kindly shared some of his knowledge and skills. I have noticed that your last 3 posts have been unsatisfied with the members here and our forum. I don't recall any of our members ever saying we were experts but instead we will say some members are very knowledgeable in certain areas which is very true.

    We discuss thoughts, ideas and share experiences we have had. The members here all have the same goal and that is to learn so that we can take care of ourselves and loved ones during an emergency whether a snow storm, flood or societal breakdown. We are all working to be more self sufficient. May I ask what exactly are you looking for?

    Embellished translates to smooth lie. And there is nothing for me to learn here. I lived off the grid (so to speak) for 2 years. That means no electricity, no running water, no plumbing. I ate what gathered (food). Ray Mears showed me most of what I know. And no need to answer because ny the time you answer I will be a ghost here.

    I think that is probably a wise decision on your part timberwolf50. Not everyone is a good fit. I have to guess that you were searching for something or you wouldn't have landed on our doorstep. I hope you find it somewhere in the vast digital world even if it wasn't with our group
