    Welcome! Please introduce yourself? (Name, age, gender, location for example)

    I am William from the midwest US. I am in my early 30’s.

    Since when are you into survival and preparedness and what made you get into it?

    I have only in the last 3 years or so been prepping more seriously.

    Why is survival and preparedness important or interesting for you? What scenario are you preparing for?

    Survival and preparedness is important to me because I refuse to be a victim and I will do whatever it takes for my family to survive and remain free. Survival/prep is interesting because I believe the true face of human nature is revealed in hardship and suffering. As is the character of an individual. I am not preparing for a specific thing. I do, however, believe some things are more likely than others. I feel an economic crash followed shortly by societal collapse is coming to the US. The country will take it particularly hard as we have become soft and complacent. this will make the first few months ugly, but the months after worse, as the survivors will be hardened and calloused to the shock of the collapse.

    How would you describe your prepping / survival philosophy? What matters for you?

    Practice and stock up BEFORE trouble hits, if you wait until you need the training/supplies, you are too late.

    Do you have some favorite quotes or words of wisdom you like?

    You are dying and have 30 seconds left, what do you do or say?

    If I am with family I tell them I love them and to follow God. If I am surrounded by enemies I fight until my last breath. If I am lucky enough to have a hand grenade, I pull the pin and make sure when they check my body I go out with a bang.

    ...it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts...

    Hi William, welcome on board!

    Survival/prep is interesting because I believe the true face of human nature is revealed in hardship and suffering. As is the character of an individual.

    You are absolutely right. Going on a bit more stressful hiking trip that can be uncomfortable at times, can show what you and others in your group are made of. At least it can give you an idea how people might react when things get a bit tougher.
