Please introduce yourself?
Christine, 33, female, southeastern ohio
Since when are you into survival and preparedness and what made you get into it?
I would say Y2k initially got me started with thinking in prepping for the unexpected. Then after week long power outages after storms the prepping really kicked in with having enough water, food and sanitation without power.
Why is survival and preparedness important or interesting for you? What scenario are you preparing for?
It is important to me because I have an 8 month old son to think of now and I want to know that I have done everything I can to be prepared for the worst and hope for the best. I am preparing for any event that would cause long term (greater than 1 month) grid down scenario such as EMP or pandemic that prevents workers from being able to get to the plants to generate power.
How would you describe your prepping / survival philosophy? What matters for you?
I believe redundancy is important….as the saying goes 2 is 1 and 1 is none. It is important for me and anyone involved in prepping with me and my family to have multiple means to achieve the goal.
Do you have some favorite quotes or words of wisdom you like?
By failing to prepare you are preparing to fail. ~Benjamin Franklin.
You are dying and have 30 seconds left, what do you do or say?
Kiss my son and tell him that i love him and that the best he can do today is to prepare for tomorrow.October 8, 2014 at 6:19 am #26354

Welcome Christine. You are already ahead of the majority of Americans in that you realize that we don’t have to be helpless victims. Ron SOctober 12, 2014 at 2:10 pm #26669
Welcome Chris. It always amazes me that people who have experienced a power outage of a couple days or more don’t seem to learn anything from the experience.October 15, 2014 at 3:17 am #27013

Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.

A belated WELCOME!
I checked in here because I know a _guy_ named Chris Midgett.
We always messed with his name and I wondered if it was him.
I’m sure you are much better looking than him, anyway!
