    I'm Susan (userid: Heatherli) from Saskatoon and I'm just beginning to
    get prepared for whatever is coming around the bend.

    I'm hoping to network with other members here since, as far as I know,
    there isn't an active preparedness group in Saskatoon. If anyone knows
    of one, I'd be glad to hear about it.

    I've been lurking for awhile and I've already found quite a bit of useful
    information! Thank you! :)

    NaeKid YourAdministrator, eh?

    Mornin' there Heather (Susan).

    As far as I know, there aren't any prep-groups out that way. Have you considered creating your own MAG (Mutual Aid Group) with close friends and family? If you do, be quite careful when creating the MAG as it could break friendships if those who are not of like-mindedness take offense to what you are proposing.

    May I ask what you see as the need for prepping?

    Welcome from another (relative) newbie!

    NaeKid...the situation in the Middle East is a bit worrisome. More and more countries
    are developing nuclear technology, terrorism is a reality in these times, and with how
    strange the weather patterns have gotten, what used to be a typical winter storm
    could get a lot worse.

    I'm not particularly confident about our current government, nor am I very comfortable
    with how our economic situation has been going and we've already had one pandemic, albeit a comparatively mild one.

    DocWard, thanks for the welcome.

    Well, if you're coming back here any time soon, bring your snow-boots. We just got more snow today....but at least it isn't as cold as a week ago. :)

    Lol, we won't be back quite that soon; our timeline ranges from months to years. We've been getting lots of snow in Alberta as well, this year...

    Try to make the move in late Spring or Summer when you do come.
    The fragrance of the sweetgrass just coming in is heavenly and it's best in the very early summer.
    We do want you to be greeted with the best Saskatchewan has to offer. :)

    Early sunner would be my choice. I want to be moving in as the UofS kids are moving out....we'll be renting for the first couple of years until we can build our house, and I have nightmares about trying to get a rental with 3 cats and 2 dogs :(

    I hear ya there!!
    I've got 3 dogs and several cats but we own our house.
    You won't find many apartments at all that will allow so much as a gerbil
    but if you're renting a house and your pets are fairly well trained,
    chances are you'll be able to find something.
    A good site to investigate this is Kijiji....have you heard of that site?
    It's kind of like a Classifieds Ad site for everything from Art to Pets to Services, you name it...worth looking into to. :)

    Dunno, but saskabound did move back to Saskatchewan (sp?) earlier this year. Not sure how far from you though.

    You might try sending both of them a Private Message.
