    The "former member" was Holly Pepper. She's done this before .... got weird, quit, then joined back up again.
    The problem with belonging to any group is that we have to tolerate all kinds of diverse personalities. Good practice, actually. If the SHTF you can imagine how stressed and bizarre everyone will act.

      Is there another meetup this saturday?

      a small group on the outside of murrieta and Hemet were thinking of organizing a small meet on a more regular basis. I dont have much details on it but I think they were going to either post it up here or email us to provide more detail and times etc..

    Who is the "former member." Was it someone that attended the meeting before leaving the group? Just curious.

    I have cooked indoors with my rocket stove in my fire place. I can do that safely because the rocket stove is almost smokeless once the sticks catch fire. After the fire goes out, I set the rocket stove in the center of the living room and let the residual heat like a space heater. It lasted for 1-2 hours. I highly recommend getting comfortable with your cooking equipment now and mastering heat-retention cooking. I solar cook year round.

    Do we ever just meet up for a weekend and test out all our gear? I would like to do that so after it's over I can see what works and what don't, and get feed back on the things I'm doing right and what I'm doing wrong.

    That was fun! Furnace hot, but fun! Fred and I met after the last meet up got canceled. Are there any more Hemet-San Jacinto Valley folk here?

    August 11, 2012

  • Fred

    Yeah, it was very nice to meet like minded people and put faces to names etc. I look forward to more meetups and sharing our knowledge and skills amongst ourselves.

    Great to meet other members! Looking forward to regular monthly meetings, as well as special training meet-ups to learn new skills.

    Great little meetup! It was good to meet a few of the other Aguanganites. We were able to set up a little get-together for next weekend for us locals to organize. I'm also looking forward to the monthly meetups as well.

    I will have my husband and 3 children ages 10, 11, and 13 in tow. I can bring my rocket stove. I am NOT gonna demonstrate it in this heat! If the venue changes to Murrieta I will be late because I want to visit the thrift store before heading north. How long is this event gonna last?

    Anyone bring children? I am bringing an 11-year-old who would love to play a board game or boffers so they can beat the tar of each other (without injury).

    I am re-confirming for Aug 11th at 10:00am. For the person who picked the spot, is there a distinctive spot or sign we can all meet at, considering most of us have never met? Or should we just meet on the sidewalk at the actual street corner? Would appreciate others to reconfirm prior to the date please.

    Wish I could make it, but there's a French Ring Sport (dog trial) that I must go to both August 10-11. http://www.pawsnclaws.us/ERD%20Trial%20Flyer%20August%202012.jpg Could of made the July 21. Will be there next time.

    I'm going to bring food to share, and I'll teach paracord bracelets to anyone interested. Bring your own paracord or buy supplies from me ($3 per "kit"). I recomend bringing or buying enough to make two bracelets. Doing it at least twice the first time you learn this helps you remember. My "kits" contain 9 feet of paracord. if you're bringing your own, 8 feet is usually enough for each bracelet.

    I think everyone knows where the duck pond is, so I chose that. I know the date is not going to work for everybody but this will be a start. Should we have a structure to our meeting? Class demos? Potluck?

    What say we shoot for a Friday night that would work for Dr Prepper (send a couple of choices please) to get the ball rolling. Next step is to suggest a location, any ideas? I also am near lake Elsinore but happy to travel to Murrieta or Temecula.

    I am always looking to meet Like Minded People. Sat is the only Day I can make it.

    W.S.H.T.F. What Is your Plan?

    I am fine with Sunday or Friday night and I have no problem going to Murrietta or Temecula.

    June 26, 2012

  • A former member
    A former member

    Would a Sunday or a Friday evening be better? I'd rather not meet on a work day .... not only am I tired at the end of the day but I need my sleep.
    As far as location, would Murrietta be okay? I don't care where I'm driving to but I know others might. Too bad I don't have Organizer authority on this site because I would set up a poll for voting to see what works best. (big hint to the Organizers .... could you create a poll to see where/when the members would like to meet?)

    I am sorry but I am not able to attend July 7th, anybody want to pick another date? : ) I only know the Lake Elsinore area, so I can't help with picking a spot unless you guys want to come this far.

    June 26, 2012

    I agree with Chris I think the best place would be at a park.

    Thanks Rookie! That's exactly what I want to see .... caring about others. My suggestion is that we have a potluck picnic at a park? How about July 7th?
    Maybe as an icebreaker I could teach how to braid paracord bracelets? Bring your own paracord, or buy a kit from me, or just watch? It takes all of about fifteen minutes. Other people can take turns fifteen minutes to lecture or demo something. Or maybe we can discuss why we are prepping. Just to get people comfortable and talking. Any ideas?

    Let's be a little more democratic about this, I would like to meet everybody and have it be a time and place convenient to all. I am not sure what is most central to everybody and what times are best. If people would like to post a few choicesof the place and times that works for them, I'll try to organize it into a few good choices we can all vote on.

    Why only Menifee people? I thought this was a Temecula group open to any area residents. Prepping should be a team effort encouraging sharing skills and helping each other. That's why I drive long distances to teach classes that I'm not making a profit on.
