New to these forums and still a neophyte to Prepping, tho have pretty decent idea already of a lot of general Prepping issues. It's the details in some areas for which I'm lacking. I'm friends w/Ximat1 in the Meat World and it's he who turned me on to this forum. Like Ximat1, I'm AD Military, tho about to retire. Married w/three chillun's. I've got pretty decent First Aid related training, basic SERE (Search Evade Resist Escape) training and love to read up on stuff. I'm pretty conversant w/firearms - and own several - and can do some basic tracking. I also want to get back in to camping and hunting. Looking forward to reading thru the forums.
