Introduce Yourself • Greetings from Virginia

April 25, 2017 SgtDKD61 0

I am relatively new to prepping, partially because my wife has always strongly opposed the idea but she has come around and we are moving forward trying to prepare for whatever may come. I was excited to find this forum and look forward to learning many things here and getting to know you fine people. I was in the Virginia Army National Guard for eight years as both an infantryman and as a NBC Defense NCO for our company. I also served in the US Coast Guard Reserve for five years. So I am not totally new to the concept of survival but I know I have much to learn.

Hi,

I recently came upon this website watching Beyond Belief. Always felt a need to prepare, especially after 9/11 and the blackout of 2003.

Looking forward to learning as much as possible!

New to this forum but not new to prepping – I live along the Texas Gulf Coast on a couple of acres with cirtus – peach and pear trees, also garden in rasied beds. Have stored can goods – vaccum packed mason jars with dry foods – dehydrated foods – freeze dryed meals – MRE’s & medical supplies. I belong to a gun club and practice often – I also like to metal detect and wood work. Will be retiring in a couple of years & I just prep for all unknowns.

Thanks,
Texan

My life was always outdoors as a country boy in old Florida….fishing hunting, and learning the basic homesteading skills that I learned later were called prepping. Now in mid-life I am in the Rockies of Montana still doing the same stuff but with different animals and more winter clothes! I am here to learn new things and pass along any knowledge I can.

Hello and welcome from NY. NY is as bad as California for taxes, insane politicians, and a new regulation every five minutes. Flee! Flee!

If you thrive in cold, New Hampshire and Vermont are good choices for gun rights, taxes are better, but some areas DO have some drug problems and the crime that goes with it so you’d want to look at that. Of course, you didn’t say you wanted to move. :D I’m with you on the cold preference. Half of my ancestors came from up near the arctic circle.

Welcome from SE Arizona. Get out of “Commiefornia” as fast as you can! Arizona is MUCH more “prep friendly”, PLUS we are VERY gun-friendly. “Constitutional Carry” state means you don’t NEED to have a CCW, but if you want to get one, you can, unless you are a “prohibited person”…felon, not US citizen, etc. AND, if you DO have a CCW, when you go to purchase a firearm, instead of calling in and waiting for a NICS check, they put your CCW number in the approval line. Without one, you go through the NICS check every time.

Just by way of intro, I am new to this forum but not to prepping. I am 56 and married with 5 children, all grown now. Washington born and raised in Oregon then moved to Arizona but currently live in California.
My family and I lived off grid for 5 years when I was 12-17 years old. I do miss the quiet simple way at times. Living through the winters without heating I learned how to “not be cold”. Sounds odd I know, but to this day I am most comfortable when the temp drops to freezing and the wind has a bite to it. As long as I’m moving I’m fine. I hope to make some connections and increase my base knowledge and skill sets.
