    Hey yall - name is Chris. Just joined last night, 4/30/11 and am already impressed with the topics, conversations, posts and outpouring of soooo many people helping one another out in here. I am self employed (own a landscaping business) have a small organic fruit and veggy farm, chickens, turkeys and just started on the inevitable WSHTF bunker. Wife is a union electrician so ALOT of know-how when it comes down to construction between the 2 of us. Hoping our knowledge can help some of yall here as well as some of your shared wisdom enlighten us as well. We are preparing for day x along with a couple handpicked individuals, our 4 sons and our black lab. Hope to talk to many of you on here about anything from politics, self reliance, gardening, alternative energy, going green, you name it.

    re: welcome aboard

    Thanks, and yeah they seem to be so far... Too many of these sites I have been in are clustered with f**ktards and a$$holes talking sh!t and trying to be better than everyone else. If it came down to a WSHTF, I wanna know that there are others besides myself, that I helped them survive, that they helped my family survive and that we can all make it one way or another given the opportunity.
