Hey everyone, just a new guy here I found the podcast when I got my iPhone I live in Dublin Ohio. I am a pretty avid shooter andbeer maker.  I have a job that I hate and a small apartment due to too many expensive hobbies and too much free time.  Most of the civilian population angers  me.  But if you are a cool guy or gal that shares my outlook on life there will always be a frosty pint and an empty seat at my place.

Sorry I was out of town.  I really liked the class and plan on taking a few more this year.  i took the wild edbile class.  The instructor walked us around an average backyard and you would be amazed at how many plants are edible and taste pretty good.  There should be no starving people around here that is for sure.

Then we went to a park and he showed us a bunch more.  We picked some and then made meals out of them.  We also made a medical save (spelling?).  A lot of the plants that he showed us also had medicinal properties.

He would be a great resouce for jack, or certainly a good interview.  He is a great resouce here as well.  I would highly recomend him.

He has:
Bee Keeping
Wild Edibles
Homesteading Skills
Fire Making
Primative weapon making
And has survival weekends and a week trip that you can take

Let me know if anyone else has gone or is planning to, it would be a great place to meet

**Swine Flu**
A nine year old boy has been confirmed to have the swine flu in Loraine county Ohio

Keep safe guys, wash your hands and keep you eyes open.
Title: Re: Ohio
Post by: "Top" W. Kone on April 27, 2009, 02:17:35 PM
Not wanting to dis the experts, but I think the media is over reacting to the "swine flu" thing. Every year 36,000 or so people die from the flu normally. Now we are to be all worked up about 85 deaths in Mexico?

like the last poster said, wash your hands, keep the place clean and use bleach (disinfectant) on everything and problem is pretty much minimized. Add in eating healthy, working out, avoiding crowds, etc and your risk becomes very low.

We don't get worked up about 36K deaths a year from flu because that is out of 300 million, why get worked up about 85 in another nation with poor health care?
Title: Re: Ohio
Post by: Tactical Badger on April 27, 2009, 02:47:32 PM
Agreed!  The media has picked up the Swine Flu ball and run with it in a big way.  But, I certainly think it warrants keeping an ear to the ground for all the information you can get.

Am I going to change my everyday lifestyle?  A little bit.  If only to try and keep from getting the flu.  God I hate getting the flu!

If nothing else, it has given me yet another mental exercise of "what if this things goes to the worst possible scenario".  And, I'm trying to use it as a teachable moment for some of the family.

Just wait for the first Swine Flu death in the U.S....that's when the general population is going to lose their danged minds.  Maybe I'm a Sadist, but I think it's really funny when people start running around, waving there arms in the air, yelling "Hep me Jesus!!  Hep me!!  Hep me" ;D

Besides, all this MIGHT just be the Obama administration's "Terrorist Threat".  Just one more way to scare the crap out of the people so they do everything the nice government tells them to do.  Now, where did I put that pesky tin-foil hat?

Man!  Reading this thread...I'm really coming to grips with just how much of an Ohio I am.  Grew up in Warren County.  Did some time in Hamilton County.  Well...not really "did time".  I just felt like it.  Spent my fair share of time in Urbana.  Mostly driving through it to get to the Mad.  Spent a number of years in Greene County.  Make an annual pilgrimage to Pioneer, OH for my fishing trip.

Nowdays, I call the Great White North of Ohio home.

Hello to all.  I'm brand new here, just discovered Jack's podcast a couple weeks ago and have been plowing through listening to older shows.

As you might guess from my handle, I'm in Worthington, one of the "inner" suburbs of Columbus.

Just getting started with prepping.  Been looking into it for a while now - we were without power for 6 days last September in the wake of that big windstorm and that really opened by eyes - but couldn't really get a handle on how to get started till I started listening tho this podcast.  I've finally gotten my wife on board, in the sense that she's now saying, "You've been talking about it for months, let's just do it." - so that's a victory! ;D

Ashland County here!  Ex-military, Eagle Scout and Boy Scout Leader to this day.

Started listening to TSP a couple of months ago - now I'm a daily listener.  Synch it and listen to it on my daily 60 min R/T to work and have learned a ton though I don't necessarily agree with 100% of Jack's views (yet).

How has listening to the show influence me?  Well, I put in a new 3' x 24' raised bed this year and followed the gardening advice I've picked up and it is producing FAR better than any other garden I've planted.  As a matter of fact, I'm going to make a new layout for my gardens and try the square foot gardening and companion planting ideas.  All I know is it is so cool to get up in the morning and pick food to add to an omelet for breakfast and a salad for lunch.  Even my wife has started listening to the gardening shows and has conceded that growing grass is a bad idea in comparison to making a yard into a producer.

Also, I haven't hunted for years, but this summer I'm going to start taking my son out shooting groundhogs and get ready for small game, turkey, and deer season.  My son is 13 and is accustomed to shooting small arms at the range and rifles/shotguns at summer camp, but ready to move into hunting.  Will be interesting to see how we can offset our grocery bills with game.  In the past, it seemed like I was spending more money in buying hunting equipment that it offset any savings on game.  Now I've got all the equipment doing nothing in the attic that outside of tags and licenses, we should be able to save and learn to provide for ouselves.

Never thought much about libertarians.  Know I'm not a liberal nor a conservative - both camps don't represent my beliefs and are just plain-ass corrupt self-serving operations funded with my money.  Pisses me off.  However, I do believe government and military are needed, just not a government that controls me and sends our troops to protect the interests of the corporate America under the guise of protecting American citizens.  We've extended our military to the point that we have weakened our ability to protect our homeland.  Making the National Guard part of the total military force and closing active military bases was the biggest blow to the ability of America to protect itself though it did push the Guard into a more professional level of preparedness that wasn't there when I was in.

2nd Amendment - All in on that one.  Concealed Carry - All in as well.   Safe and Responsible Handling of Firearms - All in.  Will the government take our guns - never!  Are there guns in the hands of bad people?  Sure, but the gun doesn't commit the crime, the idiot behind the trigger does.  I also believe that those repeat offenders of serious crimes with weapons should get a bullet instead of a lifetime in prison on my nickel. 

Mass Media?  Laughable.  The sad thing is sheep who follow the media are being molded into people who don't think for themselves.  FOX?  Off the charts.  CNN?  Entertainment news.  The networks?  Not enough time to even touch on real news.  BBC actually does a better job of representing what is going on in the world than our own news outlets. 

As a scout, I've always believed in being prepared, but now I'm taking steps to truly being prepared thanks to Jack.  I bought a deep freeze, started a large pantry and long-term food storage.  Started shopping smartly to not only save money by buying in bulk, but buying items on sale.  Don't have a bug-out home, but I do have a bug-out location to camp that has a running spring.  Real SHTF location otherwise, I'm staying put at my house.

Money?  I truly have to thank Jack for explaining how debt works.  I don't want to be a slave to a banker so have started eliminating debt and should have everything paid off except for the house by New Year's Day.  Saving, buying silver, mixing up investments and readily available cash, multiple banks and multiple safety deposit boxes.  Not a rich man, but I'm heading in a self-sufficient direction where I can give loans to myself.

Well, that's about all I have time for right now.  As an introduction, I'm interested in seeing what others in Ohio stand.

Later,
Morpheus101010

The difference is that for every flake that falls some local is having his own personal SHTF because he can't remember last year.
Snow shovels and salt are in the front of Kroger and KMart because nothing like this has ever happened before (since last year).

Well, I live in Idaho now, but I was born and raised in Ohio...just thought I'd say hello. Born in Columbus, raised in Toledo. I'm old enough to remember when the drinking age in Michigan was 18, so we'd always take a little cruise across the border to do our boozing.

I just started a new job in Bellbrook, but I'm still in Dallas at the moment.  As soon as our house sells I'll be relocating my family to somewhere in the  Dayton area.  I don't know very much about Dayton or Ohio's at all, I'm kind of a technical nomad and travel from job to job, although this will be the farthest north I've ever lived..  I was up there for the air show a couple weekends ago, it looks like a real nice place.

Here's a note about a meet up in Kentucky with our frends to the south.


A big TSP Hello to all my R4 Brothers and Sisters!  As you may or may not know, R3 has adopted a MONTHLY Meet-n-Greet schedule to be held on the 25th of each month.  Our first is today in Atlanta GA, but our next R3 Meet is scheduled for KY and probably will be held in Lexington, KY.  And that makes it 95 miles from Cincinnati, 148 miles to Dayton, a little over 200 miles to Columbus, 169 miles to Indianapolis.  So, maybe... just maybe, some of our R4 folks would like to join us for a good time at our R3 Meet?

They are free, simple, quick, easy and designed as a "come as you are, stay as long as you want, leave whenever you desire" kind of meet.  Usually at a Starbucks Coffee for the simple reason that we can drink all the free ice water we want, suck up as much of their A/C as we need and flush the toilets as many times as it takes, all without spending a penny, and they won't have the Police escort us out of the place.  So unless one of you know of a place like that in Lexington, it'll probably be at a SB.

So, an open invitation to all of R4, to come and share a moment with your R3 neighbors and participate in the first Multi-Regional TSP Meet-N-Greet in TSP history.

Hope to see you all there!

Here's the link to the R3 Meet Info Page:  http://thesurvivalpodcast.com/forum/index.php?topic=8020.0 (http://thesurvivalpodcast.com/forum/index.php?topic=8020.0)  And right now, it is showing the meet info for TODAY in Atlanta, GA, but the KY Meet will be posted soon.

Tim.


It looks like there may be some issues but if anyone from Ohio is thinking of going, please ring in.
I'm not sure if I can go yet, but hope to know soon.
Title: Re: Ohio
Post by: JasonF on August 28, 2009, 02:10:57 PM
Just fyi -

I am sure that most of the material that will be presented here will be below most of our prep levels, but the booths look interesting.  Two of us will be attending, and are looking forward to the emergency dental, emergency car repair, cooking with wheat, and the food storage booths.  I am sure that the first aid classes intended for the BSA will be very basic, but it never hurts to refresh the basics. 

Anyway, just putting it out there.  I know that it's tomorrow, but better late than never.

I was there with another forum member, and I think we got some useful info from the booths set up in the gym.  I was very interested in the water purification (I think I drooled all over the Berky set-up they had there), the cooking with wheat set-up, and the canning whatever put on by the LDS people. 

We attended one of the dental classes, and were annoyed with the continual: if this happens, go see a dentist.  We all know that, but what we were looking for was what happens if seeing a dentist is not possible. 

All in all, it was worth the drive for me, since I was only 15 minutes away.  Had I driven more than an hour, I think I might have been a little disappointed.

I agree with darkwinter...

The Panera's in Brooklyn has a meeting room that's free to reserve on a first-come, first-served basis. They also have free wifi, in case we ever wanted to have access to the forum during a meeting. Is Brooklyn a reasonable drive for everyone?

Because I'm of the mindset that it's always easier to change something than to start from scratch, I propose that we start with the model suggested here: http://thesurvivalpodcast.com/forum/index.php?topic=7704.0 (http://thesurvivalpodcast.com/forum/index.php?topic=7704.0), and change as desired.

Here's my initial proposal. Please suggest whatever changes you think appropriate. I'm not, at all, desiring to coordinate or lead this; I just want to attend, so I'm getting the ball rolling!

If we decide to meet at this Panera, we'll want to reserve the meeting room (free if available). They will take a standing reservation, so long as it doesn't conflict with any previously reserved times (such as Thursday evenings, at this location, are booked).

Tactical Badger... did you guys have that meet and greet at Panera? How did it go, good turn out? Are you planning future get togethers? Hubby and I are interested in traveling up if you have a future get together.

I'm not very functional in the cold weather.

Anyone else interested?


Oh, I just had a thought!
There's a nice rifle/pistol range out there.
What's better, meet at the park or the range?
Or maybe that killer German restaurant in Waynesville?
Title: Re: Ohio
Post by: johndayton on December 05, 2009, 07:38:57 AM
i guess where we meet would all depend on your goals:

1) a group to share ideas and experiences on survival and our specific area
2) meeting new people and friends
3) or blow as much stuff up as possible

All three sound good to me but it might make for one long day.

German place in Waynesville? im going to have to check this out........

Hello all.  I've been lurking for a while, not posting except once just to say Hello.

Anyway...

I'm in the north end of Columbus (Worthington, actually) and have succeeded in getting not only my wife but a friend and his wife hooked on Jack's show.  We've even gotten together for dinner - something we do occasionally anyway - with the express purpose of discussing how to approach food storage, gardening, building a small prepper/prepper-sympathetic community among our church friends, some entrepreneurial ambitions we share, pretty much the whole thing...  Lot's of good stuff simmering here, and getting the wives on board has been HUGE as far as really getting the momentum ramped up.

We'd be interested in a very informal meet-and-greet, perhaps in January.  Brainstorming venues in the Worthington/Polaris/Powell/Lewis Center area.  Anybody interested?  ;D

Sorry I haven't checked this post for awhile. I'd be interested in having a meet up at Ceasar's Creek or, even better, a shooting range. I'm also up for a southwest meet up. Perhaps with guys from Indiana or Kentucky. Spring sounds like a great time, although my son is due Feb. 13th. So we'll see.
Title: Re: Ohio
Post by: luke on December 23, 2009, 04:43:40 PM
Spring Valley shooting range in springtime would be great. The shotgun range is free, maybe we could shoot some clays and then head down to the rifle and pistol range. Then if we want we could go to the German place in Waynesville or somewhere else for some food or something.

Anyone wanna step up and organize it? If not, I might be able to do some organizing.

Bad dates for me are:
Feb 26-Mar 8
April 9-11
Title: Re: Ohio
Post by: Hare of Caerbannog on December 23, 2009, 05:30:33 PM
My schedule doesn't really open up until April, then I'm pretty flexible.
July and August are out for me as I have commitments.

If we want to meet at the shotgun range, I'll provide the clays. I have one cheep slinger I can bring but we can always toss them by hand.
There's good parking at the shotgun area and more parking and bathrooms down the hill at the pistol/rifle range.
Most of the time the shotgun range is empty.
They also have an archery range, but even if you don't want to shoot anything we can still meet and hang out.



Here is a link to Spring Valley's site. It has maps and descriptions.

I will be tuned to 147.015 (the offset is + and tone is 110.9) on Monday night at 7pm through 8pm.  The machine is located in Newberry, OH and the antenna is located a top a 700' tower.  (It also has backup power.) Tune to that Frequency some time in the coming few days to see if you can get into the machine.  the tricounty traffic net is on this machine Sunday, tuesday and Friday at 9:30 pm. that would be a great time to check in and see how your signal works out.

To be sensitive to those who are participating I think we should keep the topics pretty casual and not overtly prep oriented.  I don't think that we should mention the survival podcast or talk about what Jack said today, as that tips our hand.  Ham is a great topic, gardening, canning, vehicle maint, camping etc could all be great topics, that wouldn't tip the world off to the fact that we are preppers.  this is important because as we identify ourselves, it tells the world where we are.  I don't want to be too tinfoil hat, but, I'm not going to be talking about precious metals in the same conversation as I broadcast my home address.  If the conversation turns too specific, I will simply give my final and then clear.

If the on air MNG goes well, we can talk about more specifics here, and modify our on air behavior in the future.  I think that we should air on the side of conservative in the information we give out as once it is out there it cant ever come back.

I will create a separate thread in the region 4 to make sure everyone gets the message.

thanks, PAul

I really enjoyed the conversation also.  It is always nice to speak with those who have the same frame of mind, if you will.

When I got home, I commented to my wife that it was a great conversation. She asked how many of us were there.  I shared just two,and she replied, "two that you know of!" which I thought was pretty funny.

I was really pleased at how we were able to talk about a wide range of topics without coming right out and saying, "when the looters come we wil be ready because...."

So next week, same time same channel.

And as I've read here before, if you want to meet tspers dont make it too complicated.  Set a place and time and do it.  you may have a sandwich alone, or maybe not!

I don't think that's the case.  Tacbadger and I just found this to bea good way for us to get involved right now.  my post above was an unclear post in general so let me clarify a bit.

I think we can spend too much time on the computer trying to figureout when and where and how we are going to meet.  I would guessthe meets that are actually successful arethe oneswhere an individual says I'm going to be at the  Wooster olive garden at 2:00 on the 6th thursday please join me if you would like to meet and discuss tsp.

this tactic ends the debate about who can and who cant make it etc and just gets it going.  it snowballs from there (hopefully).

So I didn'tinted that people should only be meeting via radio, thats just how we pulledit off.  who knows where it will go from there.  I'm guessing we might have a meet at a hamfest, or public service event in the future. or a gun show etc.

What prepper meetings are there in the Cleveland area?  I would be interested in attending.

This is the announcement of the last meeting this last Saturday -

"The third of our series of classes/get-togethers on Disaster Preparedness will be held this upcoming Saturday, March 6th.

Initially, we’ll review material from previous classes, including list-making strategies, and bug-out-bag (BOB) preparation and structure. Next, we’ll begin with new topics, including a discussion of gardening approaches and techniques, and an overview of the many key tools needed for various survival jobs. Later, Tom Laskowski (of www.survivalschool.com (http://www.survivalschool.com)) will demonstrate fire building without matches. We’ll finish up with a prepared talk on medicinal herbs.

With this series of free classes you’ll begin to learn the basic skills and strategies needed to stay alive in most crisis situations, be that pandemic, financial collapse, EMP pulse, or one of many others.

Do you have life/health/auto/fire insurance? Acquiring the knowledge, skills, and means to survive is just another kind of insurance. You need to know what to do if the lights go out. Come join us and learn.

We’ll start promptly at 12 noon sharp. Everyone is welcome. Arrive early if you wish to talk in small groups, or individually. Our chat will run to 5:00 P.M. or so. A free meal will be provided. We’re doing this to help you prepare, so you will be able to help others.

Location: Museum of Western Reserve Farms & Equipment @ Stone Garden Farm, 2891 Southern Rd., Richfield, Ohio.

See you at noon! And, thanks for listening."

I originally found this from a link from survivalblog.com -

http://djerriwarrh.com/ (http://djerriwarrh.com/)

My brother and I are considering sponsoring a tri-state 'prepper' camping weekend Labor Day weekend at a nearby somewhat isolated campground . I've seen not too much happening in Michigan and even in NWO so wondering how many might be interested in this?

CORRECTION - I meant MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND   (though maybe Labor Day weekend would ALSO be ok). Sorry for the typo.

Id love to get a Toledo thing going, there are about 20 people I know that are extreamly interested in prepping and Toledo has quite a few "strongholds" that would make a fine temporary place to hold out until a full on bug-out would be possible in a SHTF situation, some of which are pre-stocked for 20 people for a week ;) but always looking for more people to lend a hand if they have the skills and their head on straight.

Hi cowboy,
My husband and I are near Pataskala, not too far from you. Congrats on debt freedom!
My husband is from Columbus originally and I've lived in a few towns in Ohio, but originally a country girl from SE Ohio.  Hope your garden is going well. We planted a pretty big one this year and the heat and weeding is kicking our butts, but its totally worth it.

Count in one more in Cincinnati.  I've only been here for 2 years (have family in the area), spent most of my life in Southern California (yes I have repented).  Cincinnati is a very strange place.  I keep being surprised, expecting it to act like a big city.  But its people are not big city people.  Can someone explain to me why most will not advance into an intersection to turn left on a green light?  They wait at the foul line, often through an entire cycle for the green arrow.  They can't all be weak and timid, so what could explain this? 

Still haven't figured out where a guy can shoot a rifle around here.  Not allowed for deer hunting, there doesn't seem to be much of a rifle culture here.

The reason I dialed up the Ohio board is;  considering rural land (BOL) in Southeast Ohio, seeking suggestions about suitable communities and places to stay away from.  I work out of Northern Kentucky, looked at alternate routes to get home.  Weird thing is, East of Cincinnati there's not a bridge across the Ohio River for 50+ miles.  That's a long walk.  Could be a significant factor in choosing land though, as it serves as a blocking force.

Haha... I share your feelings and I grew up in Cincy!  I don't know what it is, people are just more timid.  This can be good sometimes... for instance, I don't like it when I'm going 5 over or so and people tale gate me... I'll slow down for that!  But in terms of the stop lights, I completely agree...

It depends on what side of town you are on... http://www.wheretoshoot.org/Find_Range/index.asp (http://www.wheretoshoot.org/Find_Range/index.asp)  This lists just about all of your options... None of them are too exciting to me unless you enjoy punching holes in paper... I prefer dynamic targets like tin cans in the dirt.

Remember that big storm from 2008 that took out power for over a week in some parts of the city? Looks like Hamilton County thinks they are better prepared now. There don't seem to be any listed improvements from Duke Energy on the grid, but they seem to have some new plans in place which include...


• Hamilton County now has a reverse 911 system that allows police and fire officials to contact people in the event of an emergency.

• The county’s siren system has been upgraded using $2.3 million in homeland security money. Installation of new equipment is underway and will be completed by next spring. It will cover all populated areas and can be activated one siren at a time if only a small area needs to take shelter.

• Increased coordination with groups that help the elderly and disabled, special needs populations that need extra attention in times of emergency.

• 88 possible shelters have been identified.

With full disclosure in mind I am running the following event for profit so take that into account when I make my suggestion.

www.Warrior-Summit.com (http://www.Warrior-Summit.com) is where you can find out about The Warrior Summit.  It will be held in Akron on February 26&27 and setting up a meet with TSP folks at an existing event might help to attract folks.  In addition of the folks that are registered I personally know several that would be good folks to bring into the TSP mix.

I will end there as my intention is to help folks get together as opposed to sell my event.

Stay Safe,

Thank You for the "Welcomes", Glad to be here.

Now if we could get Spring to show up, I have had enough snowfall for one season.  It appears the Cleveland area will be hit rather hard with the white stuff.

Welcome!  Although I doubt I'll see you any time soon (its a long drive from Cincy), still glad to have you here.  I've done some hammering away, but never had any instruction enough to make anything with the black-smithing...  it'd be neat to meet up and learn some skills there.

Hey chrisdm8 & countryrootscityjob Nice to E-meet ya! Blacksmithing is not that hard once you get the basics. If you can swing a hammer,hitting the same place every time then its a matter of practice. Getting the timing down might be problematic,but could probably be worked out. I would enjoy teaching what I know. Back stepping a little bit. blacksmithing like anything else can be very difficult as you work on more advanced techniques, but basic skills will allow you to make some
simple tools as you are learning. Also there are blacksmithing groups all over and my experience with them has been very good. Some of them are Northern Ohio blacksmiths ( NOB ), Southern Ohio Farriers & Artists ( SOFA ), and Western Reserve Artist & Blacksmiths Association ( WRABA ). You should be able to run a
search and find some close. And just in case some people are close my mail is earthbiscut@gmail.com. Hope that helps!

BTW that offer doesn't just go for skibler.  if anyone wants to put together a one day meet and greet I can get an outdoor range for $200 a day, and I would be happy to run a course for NEO tsp members.  As long as the costs of the range are covered, I'm good to go.

I would think with all the folks in the area, if we could get most of them in we could get that $200 down to $10-20 per person.

I am happy to get together and just bullshit with anyone in the area. Whether its over a couple of beers, a couple boxes of ammunition, or whatever.

Hey Shaunypoo! Call them before you go. They do have restrictions on the Weapon and Ammo that you can shoot there.

Cool, thanks for the Targetworld advice.  I will have to shoot some house guns, since I don't have any yet.

As far as the winters go, I think most of North America will be in for it.  It looks like from what I have seen the temps for the thermohaline layer are lower than normal and previous trends otherwise already point to a good one.

Up coming CERT training in NEO.

The Westshore Regional CERT will be offering the 20-hour FEMA Basic Training course on five consecutive Saturdays beginning March 17, 2012 and ending with the final drill on April 14 (March 17, 24, 31 & April 7 & 14). The free classes will be offered from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each Saturday at St. John Medical Center, 29000 Center Ridge Road, Westlake, Ohio. Two class dates will take place at the Westlake Service Center, 741 Bassett Road (off Crocker-Bassett, north of Crocker Park, Detroit Road and I-90, just south of the railroad tracks and City of Bay Village border).
Early registration will be open until Friday, February 3, 2012. After that time the class dates will be released to the media. Please let me know you wish to register for class and provide me a completed application and/or your name, address, primary phone number, and email address. The last several classes were full to capacity therefore early registration is recommended. The next round of classes will be in October of 2012.
 
A completed application must be submitted to Tricia between now and the second Saturday of class (3/24) in order for the background checks to be processed before the end of the course. Team eligibility requirements include being 18 years or older with no felony conviction or misdemeanor conviction resulting in incarceration, submittal of completed application, and successful completion of the Basic Training course. If during the classes you decide team membership is not for you, no worries; the training remains free. Every family prepared for emergency and disaster situations lessons the burden on the entire emergency response system when the needs outweigh the resources. Mitigation is everyone’s responsibility!
 
Finally, feel free to pass on this information to other Westshore residents. Thank you for your interest in disaster preparedness and serving your community! I hope you can join us.

We didn't lose power, but neighborhoods here and there did, as well as the random stoplight.  I have actually seen 2 accidents where people don't adhere to the rule that a stoplight becomes a stopsign when the power goes out.  Luckily people are slowing down, but too many aren't paying attention.

Post by: CountryRootsCityJob on July 03, 2012, 03:59:07 PM
...people don't adhere to the rule that a stoplight becomes a stopsign when the power goes out...

I believe it depends on how the light is flashing...  a flashing yellow means you can proceed with caution while a flashing red is effectively a stop sign... a personal pet peeve of mine.  (If I'm wrong, please provide a source)

In regards to the storm, I was at my parents house when the storm hit, just east of Kings Island.  They lost power and later on I got to empty their two freezers into my chest freezer... it came back on on Sunday, but by then everything would have thawed out.  This has happened about 4 times now in the last ten years... I just might have dad convinced to buy a generator now!  (YAY!)  I've got fuel stored at his house, but it doesn't do much good without anything to power...

Thank you, this was my intent.

I was driving on Tylersville afterward and between Butler-Warren and 42 every OTHER light was dead.  I was very careful, stopped at the dead light, looked around, and an Escalade blew through the light at about 50 mph.  I saw him coming but he scared the crap out of my wife in the passenger seat.  He is who I look out for.

I just wanted to say Hey! We live in Central Ohio... a small town called Orient. My husband and myself are new to homesteading, and survivalism. We are eager to learn all we can, and we hope to make some friends along the way... maybe even help some people by sharing our limited experiences. NaturalorNothing.com is a blog I started to monitor our progress, keep us focused and help people get to know a bit about us.
I must admitt that I did not go through and read the 13 pages of posts before mine, because I know many of them are old, and may have changed. I'd love to hear any recent news, classes and get togethers that are going on in our area. Can anyone catch me up?

Hello Mystidawn,

We have held several gatherings in the southwest Ohio area, and I believe that there have been other events throughout the state. Once you post a little more and everyone gets to know you, you should get access to the Ohio Events Planning forum (not the official title).

Welcome to TSP, everyone starts somewhere. I'm glad to hear that you are eager to learn; there is plenty here that I still have not read or learned.

Thanks for the welcome Luke!
I hope to get some reading done this weekend. I don't even know where to start in the forums. There is just so much info, and topics. It's great! Overwhelming at first... but great! I am thrilled to be here.
It's been a busy week here, between work, and double checking that we have things in working order, like water,flashlights, and gas for the generator. I know power was out on campus last night, but it didn't get to us. I hope everyone remains safe.

Welcome Mystidawn,

We had a meet and greet a few months ago at Caesar creek state park. I plan on putting another together in the spring. I will post in the Ohio board as a meet-up when it happens. Glad to have another prepper in the area.

You are quite welcome! Well, the first place to start is with what you are most interested in, or the next project you want to do. :) I have too many to list, but I'm hoping to learn more and set up greenhouses, aquaponics, and sustainable gardening. I have already started a hugelkultur-ish bed, but I want to figure out some way to make money while I garden (and fish). At least enough to pay the bills in between other work and to expand my "research."

I'm (not so) surprised out here in BF nowhere to find others who are interested in similar things. I found a facebook group for this county that is all about farming, and surprise surprise, the admin lives a mile or two away from me! (That is like being next door neighbors in a suburb.) I'm going to do some work for her, and hopefully I can learn a lot, as she has a great homestead. I think I'm going to burn her a few episodes on CD or something. Anyone have suggestions?

Speaking of which, ahem ahem Patrick, I would like to learn a lot about rabbits.

... I am out of venison, but there were about 20 deer in the fields last night. I'm sure there will be plenty for our next meet and greet!

Me too Luke. I do not have any yet. I plan on getting a couple breeding pairs in the spring. As well as some laying hens. I believe Jarhed and his wife have rabbits. I went out deer hunting on Monday. I saw some fresh rubs, scat and tracks but all I got was cold hands and feet. I will be going out again soon. I think I need to invest in a tree stand.  We should plan another meet for the spring or even the winter if people would come.

Title: Re: Ohio
Post by: Mystidawn on October 31, 2012, 10:40:02 AM
We used to live in Arbors of Dublin, before buying our home in Orient. We are actually closer to Mt. Sterling, but most people haven't heard of either one. We both work for the same company and have about a 30 minute drive to Columbus each day. I miss all the convenience of living in Dublin. I still frequent the area because I do some shopping at Whole Foods and Trader Joes.

I know everyone has their own reasons for learning how to become more self sufficient. I will share with you what led us here. I woke up one day, and I was in the hospital, surrounded by a team of surgeons who were explaining to me that they may need to do an emergency surgery, because the X-rays and C-scans were not accurate because I was too obese. (326 pounds) Needless to say... I survived the event, but it left me motivated to turn my life around. I did not want to die at age 35.

My husband and I decided we were going to change our lifestyle because we did not like the direction we were headed. We didn't have any clearly defined path as how to achieve this new lifestyle, but it all sort of began once we bought this 5 acre home, last year. We began listening to the SShomestead Podcast, who also suggested we listen to TSP.

We didn't know the first thing about gardening, or livestock. We still don't. LOL. We grew our very first garden this summer. We had some success and some failures, and even some positive accidents. We started with 6 baby chicks, and now we're up to 21. We slaughtered one rooster and ate it. Now we are raising two bunnies and one pig.

I am now down to 240 pounds. My doctors have lowered the dose of my medications and even taken me off of a few. I am feeling better than ever. I have a ways to go, but I have already come a long way. I want to become more fit so that we can go hiking and learn how to forage for food. I may even take up hunting... some day.

We are learning everything as we go. We don't know if we will even have a job come next year, because our company was bought by another. I think I can safely say that we want to learn it all. The more we learn to do for ourselves the healthier and happier our life will be. Then one day we can hop off the hamster wheel at work, and clock out for the last time without fear of relying on that weekly paycheck.

We just celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary. I took Jack's advise and I went to the gun store and bought my husband his first gun. It is a Mossberg 500 series 12 gauge tactical shotgun. My husband would be interested in learning how to use the gun correctly, as well as going hunting. I love venison. My favorite has to be jerky.

To sum it all up...We want to learn how to make everything from scratch, just like the Amish. And we want to be prepared for the worst, so we have the knowledge and know how,then we can increase our chance of survival and hopefully... our comfort and quality of life.

Some incorporated areas have anti-chicken laws, some have limits, but I am not so sure about the unincorporated areas. If it were me, I would just get them and try to stay cool with my neighbors. A few free eggs here and there maybe if necessary, and no roosters depending on the size of your land.

I know Greene County has a composting facility where one can drop off brush and such, and I think pick up mulch for free (never tried that), but I am not sure about Montgomery County. Check their website - actually I just did and it looks like they charge for even just dropping off yard waste - Greene county does not that I know of (as of earlier this year). http://www.mcohio.org/services/swd/transfer_stations.html (http://www.mcohio.org/services/swd/transfer_stations.html) You might have luck trying other nearby counties.

n00b here from the Cincy area (just inside Clermont county).  Commute to Springfield daily... yeh, it's long... but love my job... wife works in Northern KY so we won't be moving anytime soon. 

Some of my primary concerns are about having the proper gear to "get back home", and possible also to allow spouse and I too communicate if cell towers go south.  We travel beyond what I think MURS is capable of, so am thinking that it just levels us with HAM for comms.  Neither of us have gotten a technician's license yet though.

Raven69,

It is tough renting and trying to incorporate Permaculture. Before we bought our house we rented in Clifton near UC. My land lord was cool and let us have a garden in the back, but growing anything other than annual vegetable crops would have been hard.

Keep an eye on the Cincinnati M&G thread. I want to put a meet up together sometime this spring / summer.

We used to bicycle the Little Miami Trail through your area a lot and can appreciate how nice it is.  Caesar Creek is nice, but I had one of my worst mountain biking accidents on one of the trails there (fell off a bridge).

I wouldn't want your drive into Cincy.  The nice thing about my drive is I am going the opposite direction of most of rush hour traffic.

The M&G post might not be visible to new members, but once they post enough (I think it is a low number with double digits), they should be able to see the post. The moderators set it up that way for a reason.

I would love it if some of my tenants would get into permaculture. Never hurts to ask!

Man SW is full of you ants!

Getting together this weekend with some folks in NE Ohio.  We will be running a two day defensive handgun course and have some spots left.

I will be teaching Combat Focus Shooting on Saturday and Daniel Shaw of Gunfighter Cast will be teaching Handgun Vitals 1 on Sunday.  We will be camping at the range and there will be a presentation on the characteristics of violence on Saturday night.

 I'm going to add a discount code to knock $50 off for TSP members.  "TSP50"

You can register here if you are interested  http://www.safetysolutionsacademy.com/?p=1417

If you cant make the training but want to grab dinner saturday night (and the presentation) send me a message and I will let you know where we will be when!

NE Ohio here....

grew up in Lakewood - moved waaaay east 7 months ago (or as I like to say Super East!)

moved from a lot measured in feet to 14.5 acres - whole new world out here!

I now have bunnies and chickens and do lots of things I was not allowed to do in my old house (lots and lots of them!)

I did manage to get out before Lakewood posted all of their rights limiting statements for their 4th of July party, but just barely - good thing they were there to be a nanny to all those people (well and that no actual criminals showed up since they wouldn't have cared about the rights limiting statements)

 I'm on my way to making a homestead out here, have some permaculture DVD's on the way, a chicken coop 1/2 built, bunnies that seem to have recently hit adolescence - time to separate that boy out, it's like a bunny porno in there...

Just wanted to let you know that we are going to have a TSP meet and greet on the Saturday night of Labor Day weekend in conjunction with our Warrior Summit.

You can read the TSP blog post here: http://www.thesurvivalpodcast.com/warrior-summit-and-tsp-meet-and-greet

My plan is pretty simple we are going to grill some brats and have some sides and you folks can bring your liquid refreshments.

Camping is available on site and of course you should know that there is a world class training event taking place in conjunction with this meet and greet.  Precision rifle to unarmed combatives and everything in between.  You can find out more about that at http://www.Warrior-Summit.com.

If you have questions or plan on attending please shoot me an email or reply here so we can plan.  You can email me at paul@safetysolutionsacademy.com.

I look forward to meeting as many of you as we can!

Hey Autumndawn,

What is a reasonable distance for you guys? I live out near Caesar creek state park but work in Cincinnati. I have a 40 mile commute each way but love where we bought our house and have just resigned myself to the fact the I have a long commute.  I highly recommend the area out where we are. It is far enough from cincy / dayton to be considered "out in the country". Warren county has low taxes, decent regulations and lots of hunting / outdoor activities. We live in an unincorporated township, which keeps out taxes low. We pay $1100 a year on .55 acres 1500 sq ft house. If you don't already have financing figured out yet, I recommend looking into the USDA rural development loan program. We used it and for a government program, found it did not suck as much as we thought it might, bureaucratically speaking.

http://usdaloanagency.com/lp1/?gclid=CNjGr823-7sCFWQOOgodBEEAlQ

Here is a map of eligible areas. When you zoom in, the areas that are orange are ineligible, all the white areas are eligible for the program. Let me know if you need any help if you decide to go with it.

Happy house hunting,

Title: Re: Ohio

Thanks for the info, Patrick! Hubby and I will be pouring over the website tonight. :)

We're thinking Warren or Clermont County might be our final choice and narrow down from there. We won't be going out to visit properties until spring probably. We are working on our downpayment fund until then, but we've been scouring LandWatch to get an idea of the market for now.

Thanks again!

Title: Re: Ohio
Post by: heliotropicmoth on January 15, 2014, 07:41:28 AM
I would just like to say looking at properties in the spring as opposed to the winter, which is what we did, is a good idea! We still love our house and land but winter is not the time to house hunt, unless it is purely online. The Rural home loan program with the USDA does not require a down payment, not that you shouldn't put one down, but whatever you will have in the near future will be enough to get you in a home.

We will have to do another one this year. Maybe late spring / early summer? How many people would be interested? I can rent a shelter at Caesar Creek State Park, we can grill out and get to know each other. Caesar Creek is about half way in between Cincinnati and Dayton. Also just happens to be in my front yard.  ;) Sound off in this thread so I can gauge the interest.

Has anybody taken the PDC in Cincinnati?  This-land.org is a local permaculture guild.  Looking at getting my PDC.  I'm waiting for this iceberg to melt.  Trying to build a compost bend since Christmas break.

I have worked with Braden Trauth - head of This-Land.  Also had a chance to meet Doug Crouch a few times, who organizes the PDCs.  Seems to be a pretty good guy.   Really want to take the PDC, but won't be in the cards for me this year.

heliotropicmoth, Glad to hear you're taking it.  Let us know how it goes!

For those of you who aren't taking the course, I would love to see other TSPers involved in some of the Permaculture events they host.  Sign up for the This-Land.org newsletter for PermaBlitz's and such.  I went to one last year, dug some swales and met some good folks - even a distant cousin! 

Also, Braden et.al. have a permaculture nursery to support This-Land with perennials, mostly $10.  Open Saturday mornings next to Building Value in Northside.

Just realized I forgot to announce - Peter Bane was in the area for a book signing a few weeks ago - it was awesome!  I'll be sure to give a heads-up next time

Hey BumperEagle,

I am starting week two tonight and this weekend. Doug and Braden are both great and very informed. The PDC is focused on community and I am glad I am meeting some great people in the area. It is so refreshing to not have to explain what permaculture is when you are surrounded by people who know.

Speaking of things going on in the area, not sure if anyone is involved with the Cincinnati Survival/Preparedness Meetup Group.

There is a meeting this Saturday at the Blue Ash library.  My buddy will be presenting a 101 on Money history, current policy, and what to do about it.  Also a seed exchange if anyone wants to bring anything by to exchange.

Info here if interested:  http://www.meetup.com/Cincinnati-Survival-Preparedness-Group/events/151476542/?a=me1_grp&rv=me1&_af_eid=151476542&_af=event

Also, wouldn't mind seeing some TSPers at the Meetup events.

Ok, so does anyone in the area happen to make their own kombucha?  If so, do you have any extra scoby babies that I could start with?

For those of you wondering what the heck I'm talking about, kombucha is a fermented sweet tea that has been consumed for hundreds of years in Asia and Russia apparently, and is known for multiple health benefits.
Title: Re: Ohio

What do you define as "area"? I am in SW Ohio between Cincinnati and Dayton. I have the scoby's you are seeking. It will be a little bit, my last culture died from neglect and I just got a new scoby from the PDC I just did. I need to get it going and will be able to split it in the near future.

The event was a huge success. There was something there for everyone, including the adults. The members running it brought their collections of shotguns and .22 LRs with them and we got to try out a number of them. I have to say, I'm now a fan of the 20 Gauge.  :D My daughter (15yo) got to fish and shoot for the first time and we both fell in love with archery. I can't wait to get our new home and set up an archery range to practice on.  ;D

Title: Re: Ohio
Post by: CKMe on May 18, 2015, 03:27:55 PM
I would bet that they are deploying to Cleveland.

Michael Brelo's verdict is due out some time this week. He is the cop that jumped on the hood of the car with the Malissa Williams & Timothy Russell fiasco.

He refilled his clip at least twice and jumped on the hood of the car while firing downward.

Thing is they were probably already dead when he did his moves there so they might find him innocent, if they do there could be protests.
Title: Re: Ohio
Post by: soupbone on May 19, 2015, 11:07:13 AM
The Toledo ANG Base is about three hours from Cleveland by convoy, so I don't think support to Cleveland is the reason. As far as the base being on the alert, they may have raised the terrorist threat level for some reason they are not saying - Toledo flies F-16s and is responsible for air defense of the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Plant, among other things. Close air support for urban police departments isn't one of them. These threat levels change frequently based on current intel, and are generally on a need to know basis, like you work there.

I moved back to NW Ohio (Wood county) about a year ago after living in Nebraska for 4 years.  I've been slacking on my preps while I was out there, because I had no intention of staying there.  Now I've got a modest 115 year old farmhouse on 1.3 acres to support my GF and myself.  We have no desire to have kids, and are looking at this as our mostly self-sufficient retirement home.  I'm looking to connect with like-minded folks for skill improvement and general camaraderie.

As far as things go, maple sap season is in full swing, pruning is happening and otherwise I am planning getting my beehives readies too.

I think I had saw a few others on this thread who were NE Ohio, maybe we can all meet up some time, share some ideas and such. Good to find what one would hope are like minded people living near by. If you're in to craft beer, there's that too! ;-)

I have a friend who lives on his family farm, which use to be a dairy farm. He's trying to get some things going there again, I try to help him when I can. I'm also part of a group who get together every so often to teach/share skills. This Saturday we're going to be canning meat. Canning, there's something I haven't experienced yet, so this should be good.
