Hi Folks!

New to the forum and am stopping by to say hello and introduce myself. Should have done it a couple of months ago since I've been lurking around since then, but my social skills sometimes suck.

I'm very new to the preparedness mindset . I've taken a long hard look at the way things are going in the US and not liking what I'm seeing. I have decided that, unless the Ship of State changes course SOON, we will have a Titanic-moment . And, like the Titanic, the rudder that is currently steeing the ship of state isn't up to the task of turning us before we hit the 'berg.

I (and my wife) have over 20 years in law enforcement each. Up until the last 6 months nothing ever really bothered me. NOTHING. But these days, I'm worried. So I've decided to do something about it. In my research, I found you good folks.

I currently live in SE Florida. Been thru a half dozen or so hurricanes in the last few years, so being prepared isn't new to me. HOWEVER, being at the end of a penninsula isn't a very good place to be if you have to G.O.O.D. in a hurry. So we've sold the house and are moving to the New York area....probably upstate or west CT.

I've started getting ready for what I'm afraid is going to be a rough ride. I'm looking forward to perusing the forums and gaining knowledge in an area I know little about. Hopefully, I'll be able to contribute in those areas where I have experience.

So far, I like what I'm reading.

Best to All,

NoSweat88

:wave: Hey there! I'm new, too, living here in IL but looking to move as well. Hope your move goes smooth! So far I've found everyone here to be very friendly and knowledgeable, and I just sit and read more than I really have time for!

Anyway, welcome!

Welcome! You seeing any of the oil on your shores yet?
Nope....probably won't, but you wouldn't know it to listen to the local news. They've been screeching about it for weeks now. Nevermind the spill staying fairly localized (unless something happened weather-wise today that I haven't seen)

Welcome aboard, I started prepping when I lived in Miami, right after Hurricane Andrew.
