Welcome! Please introduce yourself? (Name, age, gender, location for example)
Jimmy , a 71 years young man from So, Calif Hi Desert
Since when are you into survival and preparedness and what made you get into it?
At least 40 years and I was influenced by my mother, who grew up in the great depression.
Why is survival and preparedness important or interesting for you? What scenario are you preparing for?
I am a person who has always been self reliant. I want to be prepared for anythng, but the most immediate threat may be when, not if, the Southern San Andreas fault unzips.
How would you describe your prepping / survival philosophy? What matters for you?
Cover as many bases as I can; short term, long term. My relationship with God, then family are tops.
Do you have some favorite quotes or words of wisdom you like?
“Do the best you can, and enjoy your life”
You are dying and have 30 seconds left, what do you do or say?
Thank you Lord for my life, and I look forward to what comes next.June 8, 2014 at 6:46 pm #16026

Welcome to the forum Fishuntr!
You said you have been preparing for some time. Did your way of preparing change in recent years? Many of us here have come to survival and preparedness in the last decade or so.

Jimmy – great to see you on here! I’m sure you’ve got much to share from your life experiences and extensive time living “prepared’. I’m in SoCal too – SD county. Hope to re-locate in the next 5 years or so. Got some friends in the 29 Palms area – you near there?
I’ve been collecting “antique” era tools and manual equipment for a while now, so if you’ve got any input on which ones are “must haves” let us know. My latest is a Landers, Frary & Clark 1904 bread dough maker No. 4.

Yes Jay, a number of things have changed..or evolved. I can’t remember the author, but my mother was greatly influenced by him. He recommended gold and old silver, as well as freeze dried food storage. Nothing wrong with that, but I don’t believe gold is going to be as big a deal as a medium of exchange. I think barter, beans and bullets make more sense. I also believe you should be careful about bartering bullets.
