06/06/23 11:27 PM Everyone Should Have a Shortwave Radio by Jeanette_Isabelle

During dinner tonight, my mom and I talked about current events and the possibility of an EMP. We currently own a shortwave radio, but my mom suggested that it would be a good idea for everyone to have one. What are your thoughts on this? Do you believe that everyone should have a shortwave radio?

06/03/23 03:15 AM 78 Year Old Woman Rescued - 4 days in the Bush by dougwalkabout

A lady senior (78) with cognitive disabilities wandered from her campsite with minimal equipment.

Volunteer SAR ground pounders searched for four days. It was pretty closed-in terrain and vegetation from the reports I've seen.

She was spotted by an RCMP chopper, clinging to a branch on a steep embankment. They performed a toe-in procedure to pluck her off the slope.

Hats off to the SAR ground pounders and helo crew who brought this lady safely home.

06/01/23 12:44 PM Children Survive Jungle Plane Crash (?) by dougwalkabout

This has been going on for weeks, apparently without a resolution (that I can find).

Four children survived a plane crash in the Columbian jungle. All the adults were were killed. Searchers found evidence that they moved into the jungle, away from the crash site. They found personal items, half eaten fruit, and crude shelters. They are indigenous, so have grown up with some knowledge of the jungle environment.

But searchers on the ground and in the air cannot locate them. It's dense, difficult terrain. Even communications are dodgy.

Links to news stories (there's some repetition, but it gives the timeline of unfolding events):





Story from yesterday (31 May 23):

A little background on aviation in that area:

05/07/23 02:23 PM No Power or Internet by Jeanette_Isabelle

Yesterday morning, our power and internet connection was disrupted by a storm. To cope with the situation, we made use of our solar generator to power our refrigerator and coffee maker. We had breakfast on our screened patio, enjoying the pleasant weather. Since we had no internet, we spent time working on puzzles from my collection, such as word searches and sudoku. We used pens, mechanical pencils, and erasers from a box to work on them. Even though power was restored at 12:30 pm, we still had no internet. So, I continued to work on sudoku puzzles indoors.
