    Greetings from the Left Coast. I have been reading articles on the Blog for some time now and thought I would start to participate in the forum.
    I live on the north coast of California. Why, because this is where I grew up and have yet to find a better climate. When I do then I will move once my kids settle down.
    I am retired from public service and currently teach at a Junior College.
    I have had an interest in prepping forever. No one called it anything when I started, then it was the survivalist and now it is the preppers. Tomorrow it will be something else. Having grown up with the threat of nuclear war we prepared. Since we live in earthquake country we prepare.
    I have interests in anything outdoors. I have knowledge, not expertise, in farming, raising animals, hunting and fishing. I also have some experience in general construction.

    Here… I’ll help you out.

    “Survivalist”
    “Prepper”

    and now, “Doomer”

    “Doomer” is something I’ve heard batted around recently… I like it better than “Prepper”, which – to me – sounds like something you’d sprinkle on your dinner…

    Malgus,
    Lets not promote that one. It’s meaning is a derogatory characteration. My wife uses it when she is pissy and being a mean Bee. As in; you’re all a bunch of doom & gloomers. Eeyore I’m not.

    Welcome Realist. Any knowledge shared is useful.

    All, I prefer Prepper myself. Survivalist has too much of a Mad Max connotation, and Doomer someone suffering from depression.

    @74,

    Okay…

    Edit- actually, I made that just to be sarcastic and to tease 74 a little, but “Reloader” has potential. Who will be better prepared to reload civilization, other than us?

    Malgus,
    Well here’s where I might differ then you. I’m not planning on “long term suffering and disaster” . My plan is to enjoy the freedom of working for myself and being self suficient. I’m an optimist. I don’t believe our ancestors sat around thinking woe is me.

    Welcome Realist. It sounds as though you and I were raised alike, with one small difference. We weren’t too concerned with earthquakes here in the Midwest, we were concerned about Tornados. Ron S
