Welcome! Please introduce yourself? (Name, age, gender, location for example)
Kollaps works for now…nearing 30, male, and CA & TN
Since when are you into survival and preparedness and what made you get into it?
Living with some less than savory individuals in less than safe environments and circumstances…
Why is survival and preparedness important or interesting for you? What scenario are you preparing for?
It is important because a day will come where we are unprepared–no matter how much we have prepared for it. The best we can do is hope to minimize the effect of that realization.
How would you describe your prepping / survival philosophy? What matters for you?
Do what you must…
What matters to me: myself, my God as I understand Him, and my loved ones. Everything else is inconsequential.
Do you have some favorite quotes or words of wisdom you like?
Everything has an end.
You are dying and have 30 seconds left, what do you do or say?
Try to take out the person who took me out. If it is natural causes: “Thank you, and I love you,” to my loved ones.March 25, 2014 at 6:39 pm #2908

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

Howdy and welcome. Is “Kollaps” perhaps a simile for something else?March 25, 2014 at 7:06 pm #2949
Hello Kollaps. Absolutely, it is about minimizing the effect, there is no man who is absolutely prepared.March 25, 2014 at 7:15 pm #2956
Progress, not perfection!
And thank you, Selco. Your suggestions helped me a lot in getting my head right when I had my version of SHTF. Granted, it was a lot different than yours, but your lessons have been invaluable, and the course fantastic!March 25, 2014 at 9:58 pm #3144
Kollaps is German for “collapse,” and phonetically similar. It is actually the name of an album and song I was a fan of in college, but it is a handle I use in many circumstances. Coincidentally, it just happens to have a different meaning here. =)
