Welcome! Please introduce yourself? (Name, age, gender, location for example)
As the title says, if I’m talking, I’m not learning. I always help if I can, but I don’t usually offer too much as there are a lot of other people a lot smarter than I am.
Since when are you into survival and preparedness and what made you get into it?
Learned to prep from my parents. Dad was a plumber and was unemployed in the winters and never knew when to expect layoffs, so they would keep the freezer full. Mom would can, sew and make due with what we had. After spending 7 years in the Marines I saw the wisdom of their ways.
Why is survival and preparedness important or interesting for you? What scenario are you preparing for?
As of late, I see too much in the news and out of the news. While I pray for things not to go wrong and don’t expect the bottom to drop out of the economy at any moment, I remain prepared and remain vigilant.
Nothing in particular, but try to be ready for most anything. Short power outages, long term economic decay or anything that can disrupt day to day common expectations.
How would you describe your prepping / survival philosophy? What matters for you?
Stay at the ready. Situational awareness is of the utmost importance.
God, family and country.
Do you have some favorite quotes or words of wisdom you like?
“I’ve lived well, now I will die well. Love you bride!”

Welcome to the forum! Just being aware of whats going on and prepared if something happens is what really matters. Glad you had the right upbringing to learn this early on.
