Welcome! Please introduce yourself? (Name, age, gender, location for example)
Jason, old, male and I hang my hat in Fayetteville, NC.
Since when are you into survival and preparedness and what made you get into it?
Since I was a young boy reading the Boy Scout manual and science fiction stories. Frank Herbert’s “Dune” is my favorite book.
Why is survival and preparedness important or interesting for you? What scenario are you preparing for?
It is interesting because I find it is more a “mindset” than a gadget or trinket. People survived for thousands of years without the inventions of the last 100 years. I am preparing to live. What scenario? All of them.
How would you describe your prepping / survival philosophy? What matters for you?
Be flexible; adapt, improvise, overcome.
Do you have some favorite quotes or words of wisdom you like?
Two secular ones, plenty from the Bible:
From “Dune” the Bene-gesserit litany: “I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
From Archilochus(c. 680 BC – c. 645 BC), Greek poet and mercenary: “I have a high art: I hurt with cruelty those who wound me.”
You are dying and have 30 seconds left, what do you do or say?
“I love you” to my wife. I have been “almost” dead a few times, and truthfully I didn’t say anything.March 25, 2014 at 6:08 pm #2868
