SACRAMENTO
« on: January 26, 2010, 04:42:03 PM »
Hey Everybody,

Just putting Sacramento's flag in the dirt.  Curious as to how many people in the area are on here.

And my advice....buy a boat....not a house!

Greenneck,

I saved the boat money and spent it on a house above the dam.  ;D

Troy you are a smart man!  I'm not a homeowner yet, but I think I'll be looking in the 80 corridor above Colfax in the next couple years.

It's crazy to think how bad it would be if Folsom broke at full capacity....or if multiple dams (Shasta, Oroville) broke.  Terrifying...

Keep on truckin!

It is great to see so many fellow Sacramento’ins here – add me to the list. 

Welcome, to all the new members!

And my advice....buy a boat....not a house!

That is funny,,, I can’t say that I disagree with you at all.  Actually I can relate to that statement…  On Sunday my house in Sacramento is going on sale,,, and my backup BOL is a 47 foot sailboat in Vallejo (owned by a buddy of mine).  Nonetheless, not to digress, fortunately or unfortunately, I am only moving over to Davis; so I will still be a part of the greater Sacramento metro area for some time to come.

Newb,

Man, I wish I could make it to the permaculture get together this weekend.  Thanks once again for a heads-up on an event!  I swear I will make it to one of these events some day.  Unfortunately, as is seemingly my lot in life for the moment, I have about 3 things demanding my attendance on that particular night (work, friends get-together, and most importantly, my son’s first birthday party).  Nonetheless, thanks again.

I look forward meeting you all one of these days.

Take care,

Sean

Sorry, couldn't make it. Wife had plans and I couldn't get a baby sitter. Hope it was good for those that went. Looking forward to another event or get together.

I'm from up in the foothills near the Grass Valley/Nevada City area.  We have a permaculture group here, although I've never seen a notification of a meeting.  I'm signed up for their yahoo group and get the digest.  Seems like they just pass on workshop information and such.  What is the Sacramento Permaculture Group like?  Perhaps I should drive down for a meeting.  Do they have a yahoo group that notifies of meetings?  Any info appreciated!

*preppingmom - here is the website for the SAC permaculture - meetup group.

http://www.meetup.com/Sacramento-Area-Permaculture/

they send me notifications via email for all the meetups and ideas. Cool group, ive only been to one meeting, so i couldn't tell you what to expect.

*Mat, Im in roseville right now. i work up here 5 days a week, and all my buddies live up here so i am up here all the time. i reside in east sac.

 ive started a bunch of stuff already.

butter lettuce, garlic, carrots, flowers, roma tomatoes, mint,......drawing a blank on the rest. I think we are in the clear right now for frost. Trusting the gut feeling, but then again what do i know. im a newb!

seeds are cheap. im down to kill a few plants in order to learn a few lessons.

robinpatton@gmail.com - hit me up if you have any questions, i check my email more than the boards.

Waltonk,

Welcome to the forum!

My best regards go out to you up there in Alturas.  I did a little bit of work up there last year, and while I was there I couldn’t help appreciate the beautiful countryside around those parts. 

I don’t foresee crossing through there any time soon again, but the next I am up in your neck of the woods I can let you know – Maybe I can get us a round over at the Brass Rail.

Cheers,

waltonk

North end of Elk Grove here. Are there any survival/prepper groups in the surrounding area that meet? Survivalist clubs or organizations. I would like to hang out with some like minded individuals once and a while. Maybe get together and practice skills, learn new ones from each other. Just putting that out there to see what's happening in the area. Thinking of moving to the Wilton area next winter to get further away from the cidiots. Maybe towards Auburn. Also where can I get information on what areas would be in danger if Folsom dam failed?
