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

    nzready, 40’s, M New Zealand

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

    I have been ready for disaster – mostly natural – for more than 10 years. It is hard to track exactly how long because you start off small and get “more ready” over time.

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

    New Zealand is a wild country in parts with lots of natural hazards which are never far from where people live. New Zealand has a great government “Civil Defence” organisation that and provides rescue and recovery in disasters but also promotes readiness and self sufficiency.

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

    I have basic preparations for natural disaster kind of events but that makes you prepared for other situations too. I prepare for the welfare of my family if things go bad. I prepare to Bug In for disasters with rule of law but to Bug Out and travel light if law and order becomes a problem.

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

    If an injury has to be done to a man it should be so severe that his vengeance need not be feared. Macchiavelli. First strategy is avoidance but if that doesn’t work…..

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

    Welcome neighbour from Australia. I wish we had a government that promoted preparedness too.
