Hello, I’m Mark, 44, and I live in South Dakota. I’ve been interested in survival and preparedness since childhood. I’m interested in learning what others are doing to prepare themselves and their families for potential disasters. I was particularly surprised how unprepared people were during Katrina so I want to be sure I’m ready if I’m caught in a natural or man-made disaster. My favorite quotes are “always give 100% and you’ll never have to second guess yourself” and “train as you will fight, then fight as you trained”. Not sure what I’ll say with 30 seconds left in my life.
