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

    Ghost, Male, 41, UK

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

    Leaving home at 17 I went through periods of homelessness and poverty (by modern standards), even what could be considered extreme hunger. With nothing to lose I joined the army at 21 (just prior to which I met the woman who would become my wife), leaving the army at 24 (98) I caught the Y2K bug. Having been hungry and catching a glimpse at how precarious “society” at large is and how dependant we are on forces outside our everyday control it made sense to carry on preparing and honing my skillsets.

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

    I’m a father and a husband nothing is more important to me than those 2 things so I prepare as I see it’s my duty. I don’t prepare for any one scenario so many things seem probable, economic hardship, super virus, war, solar flare……… the list goes on.

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

    Mine and me first everyone else second, I concentrate more on lowtech and skills than gear and gadgets.

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

    **** happens to everyone, it’s how you deal with it that stands you apart.

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

    I love you <Insert wifes name here>

    If at first you don't succeed, excessive force is usually the answer.

    Welcome Ghost.

    Prepare for the unknown by studying how others in the past have coped with the unforeseeable and the unpredictable.
