I'm interested in personal responsibility and being prepared physically and mentally whether the future holds economic and societal meltdown or zombies (not much difference anyway). I am also interested in discussing current events, firearms and precious metals. I have been a member of a precious metals forum for a few years. Although I have learned a lot from them for which I will be forever grateful, a vocal group of them are headed in a different direction than I would like to go. I am looking for my next forum 'home'. Thanks for having me here. My name is pronounced "chaos".
