I would like to know about how many people there are in this forum where they are and what things they are doing to preppare. First of all I'll start with a little info about myself. My wife and I have two children at home. A 16yr old daughter and a 3yr old son. We live on about 10 acres just south of Blanding Utah. We live off grid, have livestock for, meat,eggs,wool, milk, and transportation. We hope we're well equipped enough to weather most any disaster that may come along.The key I believe besides prepareing is advance warning. We hear so many "dates of events" and so far none have been accurate. We have a number of friends in the area that are prepers as well. Though their enfacise is mainly on prepareing for governmental problems. I would realy like to get to know others that are thinking along these lines. Thanks.

Hello Morgan, it's good to see your post. I have been to the four corners area a few
times - it is truly magical.

Welcome to the board!
I would have to say that you a lot more hardcore than us, and I thought I was hardcore!
we live in the Sawtooth Mountains of New Mexico, off the grid and if need be self sufficient.

Peace and Love

Thoughts from a AZ resident, please share your ideas with me
« Reply #9 on: June 24, 2011, 10:52:13 AM »
I live in Phoenix. Have been researching what may happen since Jan. The more I learn the more depressed I get. Every major planetary catastrophe seems to occurring or lining up to ocurr once or more. What you must prepare for is a massive CME. To survive that you must be underground. With all the other anticipated events such an underground stay might be from mid sept until the end of year. My homework profiles a safe zone as: 250 mi away from coast, no more than 1500' elevation (has to do with magnetosphere disruption and reduction in height of breathable atmosphere, away from nuclear plants and fault lines. In addition you must provide medical care, food, shelter, security, and hygiene aspects for your group. There is not much time to establish all this unless you can tell me other than what my friend Terral has assembled in the Ozarks (NW Ark and SW Missouri). The team there is impressive and there will be strength in numbers. I am considering moving my family and friends there but would prefer to stay in the west.  Research shows NW AZ & NW NM not safe. Rest of AZ & NM is as well as TX, OK, and Neb

Ozarks / Yellowstone
« Reply #12 on: June 30, 2011, 09:39:34 AM »
Decided against this area for a number of reason. There should be areas/caves/fallout shelters that can be used in the SW. Only concern is proximity to Yellowstone caldera blast and cloud. Comments?

" Only concern is proximity to Yellowstone caldera blast and cloud. Comments?"

Regarding Yellowstone:

1) North America is being stretched, not compressed;
 and that can open up fissures from which lava flows  --
 as in northern Africa recently and perhaps ongoing still --
BUT stretching does not cause volcanic eruptions.  Other fissures.
 as in Mexico, and cracks, as in Wisconsin (was it?), do not
 cause lava flows.  Even fissures on the sides of volcanoes flow but
 do not explode (recent case).

2)  From http://zetatalk.com/index/zeta52.htm :
" We have indicated in the past that Yellowstone would not be exempt from erupting during the pole shift, and this still stands. But the eruption will not be what many fear. It has evidence of being a super volcano at a time when the world was in complete global turmoil, not due to a pole shifts but due to impacts and being careened out of its orbit and closer to the Sun. The injury to the crust so deep it almost reached the core. So clearly that was an exceptional situation, not this situation. What should be born in mind is that this is a subduction area, with layers of the North American Plate pushing all the way to the Continental Divide. Even though Yellowstone lies in an area which is a hot spot, there’s enough crust flakes overlapping that it is not just a direct siphon of lava to go kaboom in an explosion. But it will cause ash for some 100 miles in all direction, bad enough that life may be snuffed in those areas. So we would recommend anyone wanting to survive the shift itself, not to be close to Yellowstone but to allow a 100 miles buffer, more miles would be better. "

Thanks JimFarmer,
N AZ is much farther than 100 mi from here. Any issues with 5200' elevation?
