    My name is John Snider. I am 58 years old and live in the Kansas City, MO area. I have been into preparing for an uncertain future for about 6 years now. I feel the need to be prepared the best that I can because the nation that I love is sliding slowly (and I feel unstoppably) over a cliff into chaos. Survival is important to me because I want to live through this along with my family and team members to provide all that I can offer to rebuild our society and a reasonable and simple way of life.

    My philosophy is that we need to be able to live reasonably comfortably and securely in an environment where we can grow our own food and secure our home. I have two bug out locations in separate directions from my house with food, armament and OPSEC with team members living in both locations to provide security for the measures we have put into place already. I believe that we must continuously be vigilant and upgrade our food, water, clothing and security in each location.

    Some of my favorite quotes are:
    “The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.”
    “We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission.”
    “All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war.”

    If I had 30 seconds to live, I would want to be assured that my family is safe and can continue living safely.

    Welcome. Myself and I am sure others here would be interested in learning how you were able to get your team formed. It is an issue many struggle with, especially in an environment where most look at you as you are crazy if you even bring up the topic.

    Welcome riffels. I also would like to echo MountainBikers question of how you were able to form your survival team, if you care to share.
