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

    Hi, name is Dutchie, 36 year old Dutch national living in Ireland.

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

    Ever since I was a small boy, listening to stories about my grandfathers in WW2, I have been interested about survival of shtf situations.

     

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

    To me its important to take care of my family when the situation requires it, no matter what the emergency. (even no one can be 100% prepared for everything…) At the moment economic downturn is my number one priority, as I am of the opinion there is another one just around the corner. Other scenarios follow after that.

     

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

    Aim for comfort, but be ready to travel light. My wife and kids are most important, possesions are mostly just dead weight.

     

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

    As above: Aim for comfort, but be ready to travel light.

    Thanks, Tweva, glad I found this place.

    Ireland is great, moved here when i was 19, Holland is just too crowded for bad situations…

    Welcome aboard! Look forward to hearing your inputs. I had two grandfathers who served in WWII, one was a field medic, the other a surgeon.

    Ireland will always be in the center of my heart for, … some unknown reason, I have never lived there. But perhaps a tick for the idea of reincarnation, because every darn time I visit…I feel peace…and an immediate feeling as if ‘I am home’. LOL, and of course, on a lighter note, I still/now love/grow potatoes in multitudinous quantities. I, simply, love Ireland and her people.

    Thanks, whiteknight. One of my grandfathers was a pow with the Germans, the other was in a Jap camp.

    Haha, I know what you mean, Tweva. Love the sign when you drive away from the airport into Dublin: “Welcome Home”.

    Welcome Dutchie. Great attitude. Lots of people are ready to die for their “precious” toys, glad you arent one of them.
