Welcome! Please introduce yourself? (Name, age, gender, location for example)
My name is Neil and I reside in CT.
I am a 15 year-old male who lives in the United States of America.
Since when are you into survival and preparedness and what made you get into it?
I put myself into the survival and preparedness mindset after discovering the blunt reality of where my country is heading in the next couple of months.
I don’t want to be caught surprised and scared like the vast majority of Americans will be when the economy collapses in the United States.
Since then I have been preparing myself and my close friend for the upcoming economic collapse. I have been training myself with basic outdoor skills combined with situational awareness in urban and suburban environments.
Why is survival and preparedness important or interesting for you? What scenario are you preparing for?
Survival and preparedness is important to me due to the fact that I realized that the only person who can take responsibility for our lives is ourselves. I need to learn how to take care of my self and the members of my family in order to increase our chances of survival in the hell that awaits us. I am preparing for the upcoming economic collapse in the US.
How would you describe your prepping / survival philosophy? What matters for you?
My preparing philosophy is integrated with my life philosophy “Become a Stronger Version of Yourself” by Elliot Hulse. Preparing myself physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually has made me into a much stronger version of what I was 2 years ago.What matters to me most is the life of my family, close friends, and myself.
Do you have some favorite quotes or words of wisdom you like?
The Boy Scout Motto “Be Prepared”
Psalm 144:1 Praise be to the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.
You are dying and have 30 seconds left, what do you do or say?
I would tell my family members that I loved them all so much
and that I forgive them for all of the hardships they have put me through.
I would say a prayer to God begging for forgiveness
for my sins and I would forgive all of my enemies for what they have done to me and others that they have harmed.

Welcome to the family Irish!
Prepare for the unknown by studying how others in the past have coped with the unforeseeable and the unpredictable.

Sit back and try to absorb as much as you can.
I wouldn’t worry about the next couple months, but the next decade now that’s something to be concerned with.
I started out about the same age you are, three decades later, we’re still here and grinding away. Take it slow, learn what you can and all that you can.May 6, 2014 at 11:52 pm #12635

Thanks for the warm welcome!
Whirlibird, there is a lot of information on this website that I need to take advantage of, and it is a lot to wrap my head around. As you said, I just need to take it easy and wrap my head around all of it.May 7, 2014 at 12:59 am #12645

Welcome Irish! Very mature and wise attitude you got there. Shows again you can’t put an age on wisdom and intelligence. Survival is a lot about freedom and self improvement. I wish I would have had this interested from such an early age on.

Welcome Neil. One is never too old or too young to learn. If you know more about a certain subject than I, then please pass it along. I don’t think I am too to learn but sometimes I have to be reminded again in order to fully comprehend. Ron SMay 8, 2014 at 6:09 am #12873
