I'd be willing to help with just about anything, I do it already for the neighbors smile

Very good idea... I for one would also view this as a method of also finding like minded folks from my area where we could also work on projects if we wish. Co-op agreements don't have to be only for emergency needs.

Anyway, count me in - it would be good to give/get help in times of need.

Thanks for word of encouragement, I hopefully will have some free time tomorrow to start this. Shouldn't be to long of a project but as we add options / features it will provide more over time smile

Around here, we call "Forging of Cooperative Alliances" friendship and community.

It works pretty darn well. We tested out "Forging of Cooperative Alliances" during the Delaware river floods of 2004,2005 and 2006 and sure enough, the members of the "Cooperative Alliances" all got together to help out with the flooding, cooked meals at the firehouse and generally were there when needed.

In fact, I think "Forging of Cooperative Alliances" is a basic requirement of life.

I agree. It's unfortunate a lot of people work more to do less @ home w/their neighbors/friends. And money goes just to get buy frown

Greetings,

IRT this subject,

I have been observing how information has been posted on the Forum concerning pre-Ike, during Ike, and post-Ike.
&
The "pm" system only accommodates 5 addressees.

1) The best place for long distance information flow is, as it already is: via the "Survival and Around The Campfire Boards".

2) A 1 or 2 state area can be tied together with interested individuals via the "PM" system as many people are currently utilizing.

3) The same "PM" system can tie several people in regional areas together as well.

4) A new communications network or bulletin board, or website is not needed.

5) ETS has already provided a more than adequate, flexible means to communicate by "like-minded" people.

6) Our normal impulses/feelings to assist each other is occurring naturally as it is.

7) There is no need for anything different than what we have right here.

Bo
