    Quite a few of them are also active on this forum......
    If you are interested in "preparedness" then you might find them of interest..."Rambos" tend to get short shrift!

    Yep, we gently point those more into the 'stock, store and stash', and how to deal with natural disaster and civil unrest, folks, their direction.

    AFAIK they aren't into the armed to the teeth kind of preparation. They're not trying to bring on any vigilante seperate state insurrection.

    I suspect they'd find that laughable

    cheers,

    I think so

    No one site will ever suit everybody. They all have their own strengths and limits.

    I am a member (as I am of quite a few other sites). Friendly bunch and DEF NOT into 'Rambo' stuff.
    Try them and see.
    I think that they are not better or worse then others.
    ALL sites tend to suffer from the 'dominant' and the 'not so dominant'.
    I have found them to be fine.
    Also again every forum suffers from the same subject coming up again and again.
    For members that have been there a while, it can very easily loose its 'luster'.
    I remember when I subscribed to a mag called Car Mechanic and after two years the artilces repeated so I stopped buying.
    Apart from IT, there are very few areas that change a lot (within a persons lifetime).
    So how many ways can you say about making bannock? lol
    Having said that. I was a member once (before moving)of a fushia society and they ONLY ever talked about fushias. ALL year!! but the enthusiasm was fantastic.
    The chairlady was a small person with a very mild voice. But all she had to do to get the meeting going (from the very deafening hubbub) was to say 'Ehm tonights talk is about..' and the room went silent!! incredible

    Don't know a Martin Rik - do you mean Dave?

    LSG is a small private site dedicated to self sufficiency / self reliance and overcoming any problems from power cuts to natural disaster. Its absolutely not about any silly political, militia or Zombie nonsense.

    I enjoy the breadth of topics it covers - from making your own electicity generating water wheel to how to make bacon or dip candles.

    However its not a site that actively seeks out new members - its very much a contributors site for like minded people. If you or your friends think its not for you, theres lots and lots of other sites on the internet - let us know what interests you and I'm sure someone here can recommend a suitable site

    If not a little damp down by that river, but the Oxtail stew went down well I seem to remember, thought the trailer sadly left the first night just after arrival IIRC. I do remember the sun coming out during the saturday morning which brightened things up a bit.

    At the end of the day it just another forum. I don't know who these people that 'advised' you were? Possibly disgruntled ex-members that broke that particular forums rules? Or maybe they didn't like having a particular opinion challenged?

    If you contemplated having a look , go have a look . If its not for you don't visit again. simple.

    Anyway , its just another forum , no secret handshakes , no tin foil hats , no ultraviolet barcode tattoo's and no motorbike death squads on hold ready to 'off' ex-members...

    As with any group there are bound to be people that you agree with , disagree with and everything in between.

    What was your prime concern???

    Well it has added another six names to the list today, maybe they will stay, maybe they won't, but all are being given the opportunity to become contributers.

    We had heard of an Ex-member that thought it was a "Cult" all because a few of the original members arrived there after being active on a "Cult" TV series forum of the 70's AKA "Survivors".

    Takes all sorts to make the world go around I guess.

    I / We were that trailer and though I don't mind camping (though I'd rather be in a five star hotel ) I am not very keen on sleeping under 4" of water

    We are quite friendly over there, we haven't eaten anybody for ages

    My sig just about covers it

    IIRC you have to sign up to view the forum properly.
    But you still cant view it until you've written a suitably impressive introduction about yourself (those in the know will decide if you've made the grade!)
    Then after a few days you may be allowed "in".
    I think you also have to keep posting on a regular basis, otherwise "your out"
    If you're a good boy and tow the line for long enough,,, maybe you might make it into the "inner circle"
    Perhaps it's this cliquey nature which put your mates off

    Of the six or so new members this post has created we have five posting in the regular forums.

    It depends if the admin staff are available to activate accounts as to how long it takes, if we are at a meet it can be several days, if, as earlier this year I was in New Zealand visiting a member of the forum, it may take several weeks

    And it would be the "Outer Circle", the "Inner Circle" is even more "Cliquey".

    Yes we do like a good intro, we set this up after we had 200 new members in one night due to spammers. As Red has mentioned above, we are a "contributers" forum, if you don't contribute...Ta ta
