Hello from Cambodia

Post by ILFE » Tue Aug 07, 2018 9:41 am

Hi all,

I joined back in June, but only made my first post today.

I'm a retired southern boy, living in SEA for the past two decades. I am 52 years old, living on a 2 hectare (~5 acres) farm with the wife and her family, in northern Cambodia.

I don't recall how I actually found this forum. Sorry. But, I hope I can provide useful / helpful input here.

Welcome! I bet you will be able to contribute plenty. And it is always nice to have more faces and voices here.

What brings you here? Are you preparing for anything in particular?

Lived in SEA? As in Seattle? What part? Anyways take care! Would love to see pictures of the property! I’ve been watching a lot of videos of primitive survival with gutted from south east Asia.

Welcome to the forum!

What brings you here?
I used to own an online forum (expat related for SEA), but sold it going on two years ago. I am focusing more on our little farm, since we have more time on our hands. So, I've joined a number of off-grid, prepper focused forums. At the moment, I am only active on two. Basically, I wish to share knowledge and information with other, like minded folks. More recently, I figured I would expand my horizons a bit, and see what other prepper focused forums had to offer.

I am an American; the wife is Khmer. We live on her 2 hectare farm (~5 acres) in Northwestern Cambodia. Living in a Third-World country, you are prepping all the time. :mrgreen: We have power cuts, water outages, and highways that Jeep on 35 inch rubber would appreciate.

Basically, we are doing the "self-sustainable living" thing. Mainly, I am building the farm up so the wife doesn't have to look elsewhere after I am gone, for support, or another man - unless it is by her choice. She's been far to loyal to me over the years, for me to ever turn my back on her.

Well, here are the two most recent, taken this morning. We had a calf born this morning sometime between 00:00 and 03:00, local.

Zimmy, I didn't know you were a member here as well. Great to see ya on this site, too!

Thanks for the compliment. I am humbled by your post.

EDIT: I guess that answers my question. I guess the magic number is 5.

Unfortunately, ILFE has suddenly passed away from pancreatic cancer. Diagnosis was late and options were few. He opted to spend the time left with his beloved family in SEA.

Fair winds to you, Paul. I'm smarter and better for knowing you.

Topic stickied.

I will discuss with the admins possibly creating an "In Memorium" area for threads about members who have passed.

Condolences Zimmy, on the loss of your friend.

Thread locked to prevent random stupid BS from being posted to it and until an "In Memorium" area can be created.
