I know, what a stereo typical hello from an Aussie. So hello anyway well I'm a Prepper and have been for years (sounds like an AA meeting). Prepping in Australia is somewhat different for us for a few reasons but predominately:

1. Geography
2. Wildlife/farming techniques
3. Attitudes
4. Firearm culture. We have very tight gun laws and not wanting to get into an argument (well not on the first post :lol:) I think there is some merit in them. Good ideas poorly executed though; obviously conceived by bureaucracy and implemented by government agencies. Anyway apart from the criminals there isn't a lot of firearms in the community. Apparently the much held view of our government is that criminals will abide by the law and not carry firearms (yea right). I will continue to jump through the bureaucratic hoops to maintain mine though.

When I'm not prepping in Australia I manage some bush camps in remote areas in PNG so I have an understanding of how to build/design remote sites and the communication for them. having to build bush water supplies, shelter, waste treatment etc is my day to day job nowadays.

So having said that I will sit back and read and hopefully learn from you all and interject my Aussie based experience where I can.

Welcome for Florida.
I spent 5 days in Sydney once, long time ago. Your womenfolk are very beautiful (or maybe that had something to do with the environment I had just come from), and ya'll talk different.:lol:
By PNG does that mean Papua New Guinea?

Rice Paddy Daddy; mate glad you had your R&R in Sydney it is a nice place and yes when I get out of the Jungle and head down south i walk around jaw open looking at the beautiful women (but they dont look at me). PNG is Papua New Guinea. I have a nice job by a big river in the middle of no where.

I remember as a young LT serving in Cambodia and there was a young female US Army Captain serving with us. She used to just sit and look at us talking. One day I asked her what she was looking at she said "I know you guys are speaking English but I just cant understand what you are saying" I guess it is the Queen's English that we speak as we certainly don't have an accent lol.

Prepadoodle love that upside down writing when it crossed the equator it didn't right itself though.

Thanks for warm welcome
from your cousin from downunder.

I like your signature line, Sanook. My passion, since being a teenager, has been the study of military history, especially WWII.
The fight to stop the Japanese advance southward by denying them Port Moresby was certainly hellish.
Austrailian troops have always aquitted themselves well on the field of battle. Ya'll stood shoulder to shoulder with us in Vietnam also.
Not many of my countrymen are aware of that.

Welcome from Las Vegas, NV. Like RPD stated above, I'm one of those who knows. Worked security with an Australian MP during the visit of one of their senior officers.

Welcome, I sell a lot of "crossbow parts" to AU on ebay


They are cheapy 80lb pistol style crossbows but a lot of the "parts" get through customs.
