In the woods north of Everett.

Anybody have a prediction whether Rossi can get re-elected and make it stick this time?

Rossi can get "re-elected"; it's possible.  But it'll be close and they cheated their way in last time when it was close.  Also, a huge Obama zombie turn out might help her out.

Vancouver here. I don't think Rossi has nearly the shot now that he is up against the incumbent.

He fought a decent fight.  Too bad all the dead people are so liberal.

Looks like everyone here is from the West side.  I'm East of the Cascades just outside of Spokane.  You heard of any other Inland Empire prepies?

Nope, Greenjeans, I haven't heard of any of you "509ers" so far. 

Eastern Washington is probably one of the best places in the country to be for SHTF purposes.  You're lucky.

Migrated here from LA 30 years ago.  And you are right, we are blessed.  But of course I'm a "rag sailor" and envy you on the Sound.  Grass green and all that.

Anyone make it to the gun show in Puyallup this past Sat?

Michael J: Welcome aboard.  I loved your work for the Chicago Bulls.  Oh, wait, that's a different Michael J.

You, me, and Dr. Gonzo are the only western Washingtonians I know of.  Stein is in Vancouver, WA but that's basically Portland.

I didn't get to Puyallup (I was coyote hunting, which was cool).

Well it was packet.  I got their right when it opened and then waited in line for over an hour to register with the WAC so I could make purchases.
It was my first gun show.  Really enjoyed it. The Monroe, WA event is in Feb.  I'll go check that out but they say it is one tenth the size of Puyallup.

I only seem to get to Puyallup for the Fair.  For all the non-Washingtonians, it's pronounced "Pew-al-up."

Hello Washington peeps,

I found the podcast a few weeks ago, part of a short but eye-opening path I've been on since stumbling across Chris Martenson's Crash Course in October or so. 

Unless you count reading Jack London books as a kid, I have zippo in the way of survival knowledge or skills, so I'm starting with learning as much as I can about gardening and permaculture and seeing what I can grow this year.  Also, I'm an aspiring mead and wine-maker so I got a kick out of Jack's podcast on that.  I've got a book on beekeeping right now and may give that a try too. 

Anyhoo, I'm out in Lake Stevens, so waves to the Everett and Monroe folks.  I'd love to have a bunch of acreage somewhere, but I have 2/3rds of an acre and an energy efficient little house, so figure I can make do here.  At the very least, you'd have to be truly talented to freeze to death in the winter out here, even if there were no power. :P

Welcome Alcyone!  Glad to have you.  Given some of the preps you're already doing, you'll love this forum. 

I post quite a few questions for people and I always get great answers.  No one has ever said "that was a dumb question." 

There's a thread called "explain your avatar" or something like that.  You should post on that because you have a cool one and I bet there's a story behind it.

Welcome aboard Alcyone,  I also call Lake Stevens home.  Been on the website and listening to Captain Jack since the end of Dec.

Great stuff.

Fairly new here.
I am in Ethel. As in Ethel from the streak. Ethel is in the swamp land (on the west side). I grew up in the wheat fields of E Oregon and would go back in a heart beat if I could. Been over here 20 + yrs and have yet to grow my web feet.
