Hi all
I'm in Hunter Valley NSW - read that we need to be a long way from the coast.  I'm only an hours drive from coast myself - no tall mountains around me - just high hills i n a basin.  Also read and seen John Moores video utube ex American navy seal who has great video and info - we need to be 600' above sea level as huge tsunamis will hit - we need cover- shelter, plenty food, water, medical supplies, warm clothing, probably sleeping bags to -26 or so.  In biblical end times w=- whether you choose to believe that or not - its pretty obvious with the state the world is in.  Other issues going on in world as well and global.

Are there any prepper groups around the area??.  See Prep Aussie utube videos n- lots of great info there plus info financial collapse - see tradingeconomics.com  for info on global banks etc.  Prep has really good info on bugging in and out etc.
Hi Christine,  I am in the Hunter Valley as well.  Tried to set up a Hunter Valley meet and greet once.  The activity was in Mainland and only two families turned up.  There were a few avid posters from the Hunter on the forum but they seem to of gone quiet.  I am interested in setting up a group or loose collaboration.

I am also prepping for end times, my scenario is economic collapse then war etc.. and geological instability. 

My favourite economic and news site is You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login   Zero Hedge..   The economy is starting to fail on all fronts, and agree the earth is becoming unstable as well.  Tsunami are not such a big issue off the Aus East coast  - I would think 60m above sea level would be fine.  Flooding in low lying ares is a big concern.

Just bought a CZ455 in stainless synthetic. Gorgeous bit of gear. Beautifully balanced at only 2.4Kg with a 20.5 inch barrel, which I'll stick in the lathe and shorten to maybe 18 and fit a muzzle cap. Have a few spare Leupold 2.5-8's lying around so that's what it will be wearing when the stupid 28 days is up. Watch this space …….

I bought a place on the NSW South Coast as my "forever" place - but I'll always keep the 600 acres of bush in the mountains as a bolthole. Wont be moving to the coast until next year though.

Interesting how we all have different ideas of where the best place to be is.

I am 1Km from the ocean on a few acres. I chose it simply because my main interests (apart from hunting which I do on the bush block - deer, pigs, goats), revolve around fishing, diving and self sufficient living. The South Coast has quite a mild climate - warmer than Canberra in Winter, cooler in Summer - a good long growing season and very consistent rainfall all year except for July/August but even then not bad. I only have a bit over 2 acres there but it is more than enough for an orchard, veggy garden and the sheds I am having built for my toys.

The town I am on the very edge of only has 1,500 people and all up and down the coast there are rivers, lakes and estuaries that have always been great fishing, prawning and crabbing, something I am pretty good at. While fuel supplies last I can/will fish offshore as well - I wont go short. Have a farming/animal husbandry background and have my own machinery to make working a veggy garden easy - an 80HP tractor is a bit of overkill on a 1 acre veggy garden though  .

I have lived/worked pretty much everywhere from inland on the fringes of the Simpson Desert to the Cities but the Coastal life suits me best.

Yes, but they chew through the battery quick, larger and the signal drops alot when im out and about. This is why ive been using my windows tablet with external GPS antenna.

Just about all mobile phones have a GPS receiver, and there are many apps available.  They work offline.

I have a garmin nuova or some such silly bugger name. Only used it to get through friggin Melbourne and onto the Princess. It was shit hot. Apart from that I follow my nose or a map. I believe you can get piddly little phones with map app thingawhirlygigs that have headphones and talk to you as you go.

The gummint has had all our/your info for yonks. Uless you fly so low under the radar that you have no wireless pones, internet, get your drugs and meds from the candy man, use no bought fuel, have no credit or debit cards, no licences or reg'd bang sticks etc. I'd rather not be on any bloody database but wtf, what damage is another one going to do. Shit, might even help to prolong some poor bastards miserable existence. I gotta get my tongue unstuck from my cheek.

Hi people.

Its time I downsize from a 12" tablet to a handheld GPS device.
I figure something so much smaller that does the same thing is an investment itself. The screen size is a compromise, but not too bad I will hope.
I use this for logging routes to take, interesting finds and a bread crumb in case I get lost, since I am geographically challenged.

I have spent some time today having a gander at online reviews and recommendations. However I would like to hear what you use/own/want.

I am currently leaning towards a Garmin GPSMAP64ST.
