Good day all- The state of the world is becoming disheartening to watch so my family and others with us have decided to watch no more and begin "prepping" the last 2 months. I grew up camping and with mother nature as my babysitter. I enjoy hunting, anything with tools, and learning new ways to do an old trick. I have an understanding wife who accepts my flaws and three young children to exploit them. Keeping them safe and with the best quality of life is my ultimate goal. I'm a young 29 and I can see the unfortunate changes in society. Its bad when I can say I remember when...:cry: My brother's family and mine have been working together and relearning skills we grew up on in Colorado. Other than that we are starting from scratch. Be patient as I'm sure we will have many ?'s and opinions to ask. This seems to be a great place of knowledge and experience. Thanks for allowing me to borrow some of it. I can only hope to add to it.
