Survival Shelter and Location Ideas / Re: Safe Locations

I am not sure what will happen in Australia but if you can move your family inland that would be a good idea.
Perhaps some land inland where you could all go to...
Western OR EASTERN Australia?  says that the India-Australia tectonic plate will tilt as it slides more underneath the Himalayan mountains;  western AU will be under water, and eastern AU will rise.  However, there is some indication that the plate might crack in the middle, and then AU will not be affected so much.


I would recommend foothills in Tasmania (best) or the Atherton Tablelands in north-east Queensland.  (I have family over there, but they won't listen.)

Thanks for this, it gives me hope that we'll be in the area of the elevation increase... I know there are mountains only a few ours from Melbourne so we might be in great shape. Thanks for sharing this. It can at least assist with determining a safe zone when needed.

I know it will suck not owning a gun. I've already sold all the ones I've had... I hated to let go of them... We'll be living in the State of Victoria, Melbourne area.... We'll still be about an  hour from the beach. I guess that's far enough inland to escape a major tsunami if they have them... It's pretty much a neutral country, so there aren't many terrorist or countries wanting to go to war with them, so that's a plus... All my wife's family is there and her family is 10x larger than mine, and all live in about the same area... Our man reason for moving is so our children can have a chance to get to know their other 1/10 of their family.... Plus I've always wanted to live in Australia, haha....

Well my family and I will be moving back to AU sometime next year...  I'm hoping we'll have a better chance of survival there when the SHTF... I know we'll be closer to the coast line than we are now, but we have more family there to count on when the time comes... Anyone know what is being said of the outcomes to AU when things fall apart (Government, Geographical Area, etc)? I do know owning a gun there is a no-no...

Thank you for your post and honesty. Everyone's life is their own, and experiences they live aren't anyone's but theirs. I have had experiences in life in which I believe involve demons and angels...  I believe in the Bible and all that is written in it. I also believe that God doesn't have to share everything with us in the bible, and it is possible he could have created other creatures on other planets... Is it possible we aren't his first creation, maybe, just because the bible doesn't say he created other beings doesn't mean he didn't, but i do believe everything I read in the bible to be true. With that said, who are we to judge each other. I honestly believe that some of the people that are probably in mental institutes that say they see things probably aren't even crazy, but because Scientist can't rationalize what they are seeing or feeling, they must be crazy..... I believe we live in a spiritual environment, and only those open to the environment can see and feel the effects... Just because I believe in God and the Bible and live according to His Will doesn't mean I'm religious, it just means I have a relationship with my Creator. I do not judge you, I welcome you.

My wife has always put it on our kids chest which is still close enough for them to receive the benefits.... I've always asked her not  to put it on their faces because of all the stuff you read about it being close to their nose or mouth, but we just vics a lot. Even in when they take a bath we get the vicks bath bubbles.... The kids love it... Four kids later and no adverse effects...

I've  yet to see anything like this in person.... Guess luck plays a huge part.

Thanks for sharing Cosmic. I agree with you and think there is more to the story than they are sharing. It reminds of a TV show i watch called Haven and ever time something crazy happens in the town they blame it on a gas leak and everyone believes it.

Willsorr75, thanks for your post and you are right about that..
Meanwhile I just found out about something else. I can't find any verification on it yet. Newly - discovered asteroid on way to earth in 24 hours - hazardous.
I'm not finding anything in the Close approach data that is supposed to come that close...

Please share updates when you can, I'd like to know more...

These fireballs seem to be happening more frequently now. My daughters and I were playing soccer with about 20 other people about five weeks ago, and we had about 30 min of daylight left. I was a goalie and facing west and on of my daughters and her friend were my defenders in front of me. The ball was at the other end of the field, and while we were watching them fight over the ball a similar event happened. We saw what we called a shooting star run across the sky, and as it go closer to earth it got brighter and then broke apart and dimmed out for a second and lit back up for two seconds. It was really bright, but not as bright as what they are describing in the recent one. We didn't hear any sounds though, but it still was something spectacular... We new it wasn't your typical shooting star because it move at a slower speed and didn't shoot across the sky as fast. When it happened, half of my team all shouted did you see that, and the game stopped for a second and everyone watched to see if it would happen again, but it didn't. With that being said it makes me wonder how many times this has happened recently and it just didn't  make the news because it was caught on film.

I watched a great documentary on Netflix last night about raccoons and how they have evolved.  They are originally from the tropics but have now migrated all the way up into Canada.  Now they are not only destroying ancient buildings in China, but have over run many cities in the US and Canada.  Because they have "hands", they have been able to advance in ways other creatures are not able to.  They are extremely smart, and learn new ways quickly.  Like rats, they are able to flatten their spines and get through really narrow cracks and openings, it is unbelievable.

One important thing I learned is that they carry a virus in their feces that can only be destroyed by burning it.  Unknowingly, when people sweep up the droppings, particles become airborne and are inhaled by horses, dogs, and people and can be deadly.  It is recommended that one wear a face mask, and then change their clothes and thoroughly wash and dry them.

So cute creatures, but apparently need to be eradicated as they are totally out of control and currently living in cities more than the country due to all our dog and cat food and garbage.  I recommend this show to all who are able to find it and watch it, and it may even be on Youtube or the web somewhere.

WOW, I did not know that about Racoons.. They are amazing little creatures and apparently quite harmful.

Willsorr75 - that's funny.  ;) Now let's see do we give the possum and raccoon together as a gift  or do we put the badger and the raccoon together in one cage and give that one, haha.
Actually pretty awful, but funny...

I like where you are going with this!! LOL!

MyFC PowerTrekk Fuel Cell Charger

This innovative new hybrid battery pack has a twist: its disposable fuel cells can be charged with water. Pour a little water into a “power puck” ($4 apiece; 1 oz.) and you’ll generate enough energy for a single smartphone charge. The PowerTrekk also has a lithium-ion battery pack that can be charged via USB cable, so you’re not wedded to the fuel cell system—at least for your first charge. At over $200, this device isn’t cheap, but does have a few advantages: it’s only 8 ounces and can power your phone or GPS off-grid faster than a typical solar charger; and it’s durable enough to bounce around in your pack and withstand splashes. IPhone adapter included.

BioLite CampStove

What’s cooler than a super-efficient camp stove that weighs only two pounds and requires only twigs for fuel? How about one that charges your iPhone. The heat generated by the BioLite fuels a thermoelectric generator that powers USB-chargeable devices: smartphones, headlamps, GPS devices and more. Twenty minutes of fire will not only boil water for your morning coffee and cook your breakfast, it’ll give you 60 minutes of talk time on your iPhone or Android smartphone.
$129.95 at


BioLite isn’t the only way to harness the power of your campfire for the benefit of your electronic gear. Debuting at this summer’s Outdoor Retailer product show, the FlameStower also uses a thermoelectric generator. You fill up the water reservoir and position the generator over an open flame or other heat source. Its USB output charges at about half the rate of a wall outlet, say the manufacturers, so you can completely charge an iPhone in about 3 hours, depending on the heat of the flame. Good for any USB-chargeable device, it’s only 8 ounces and collapses down to a very stowable 7.75” x 2.25” x 1”-package (inset). Available for pre-order.

The PowerPot

The third fire-powered charger on this list uses similar technology in a slightly different way. Whereas the BioLite is the stove itself and the FlameStower uses heat from another source, the PowerPot places the generator on the bottom of a pot you can use to boil up to 46 ounces of water. A flame-resistant USB cable will recharge your smartphone, digital camera or other device at slightly faster rate the other chargers—under 2 hours, the manufacturers claim. Like the FlameStower, you need to keep an eye on the water level, and, at 18 ounces with lid and cable, it’s a tad heavier than average camping pot. (Hint: the lid can be flipped upside down for use as a frying pan.)

Badgers look harmless though, but they do have long teeth and claws. Here in Teneessee we have to worry about Skunks and Possums.

They probably are harmless...maybe a few people managed to step right on them or startle them...Oops!
Possums and raccoons here manage to get into the yard and get cat food...they think they are our pets...

Those would be two pets I would offer to the in-laws!

I understand that raccoons can be pretty vicious.

Oh yeah,  I forgot about them. We use to have one get in our garbage every night. They are the cutest things, but mean if messed with.
