Just a quick bio on myself. Started with the Forest Service when I was 19 years old, put in 11 seasons with them between 1987-2000. With the FS, I did wilderness trails, non-wilderness trails, 4x4 patrol, campgrounds, wildland fires, ATV/MC trails, water system maintenance, construction, demolition, and animal packing. Also served as a sheriff's deputy 1990-1993, was an EMT on a volunteer ambulance service, and did some log home construction, too. I first got into prepping in 1986 and while my interest has waxed and waned over the years, I think the combination of Peak Oil and the economic challenges it presents will inevitably lead to a changing of the world as we know it. Hopefully we'll find ways of living more sustainably that avoids big shocks to the system, but I'm not always optimistic about that.
