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

    Hey all my name is Noonanda, 39 yr old male located in the deserts of Yucca Valley california

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

    I got more into survival after we moved up here, but having been both a boyscout and then a US Marine for 20 years I have always been interested in survival. Having a family to take care /taken care of is everything to me.

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

    Bad things happen to good people, and while you cannot prepare for everything some basic planning can take you a long way. My worst case scenarios would be general unrest/economic collapse or a severe earthquake(s).

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

    Its like the old latin saying “Si Vis Pacem Parabellum” (If you want peace prepare for war)
    No one looks forward to what might happen or wants TEOWAWKI/SHTF to happen unless you are brain damaged. But preparing for Worst case scenarios is what I used to do, I was always looking at what could go wrong and figuring out ways to mitigate. My family is everything to me, and will defend them with my life, so I look at ways things could go bad and try to develop a plan, and update those plans as neccesary.

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

    Got 3 favorite quotes, One from a classic movie and 2 from serving as a Marine. Movie quote would be “You see in this world there are two types of people my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig… you dig” from clint eastwood in The good the bad and the ugly.
    The others are “stupid people are alive because it is illegal to kill them” and “prior proper planning prevents piss poor performance”

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

    Tough one, probably just goodbyes to my family

    Hey Noonanda, welcome on board!

    “Si Vis Pacem Parabellum” (If you want peace prepare for war)

    Love that one, added to my little collection. I also like the planning aspect of survival. Thinking through possibilities and what could be done. Its a bit like a game.
