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

    Hello. I am from Western Washington and in my early 40’s.

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

    I don’t consider “survival and preparedness” something you really “get into.” I consider it as something that is very common sense. In almost all countries in the world, there have been disasters/wars/civil unrest/etc. Here in the US we have been very fortunate and have not had to deal with these types of things. Our last, real life SHTF type scenario was during the Great Depression for all practical purposes. Of course there have been smaller things, but nothing like what all of Europe dealt with during WWII, the wars in Africa, civil unrest in Russia, etc. We have become lazy. It only makes sense to me that everyone should take care of their famiies and themselves, thus prepare for bad things to happen.

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

    Preparing for specific things doesn’t make sense to me. It is too narrow minded, IMO. You have to just take care of your family and prepare for what lies ahead. It could be anything from job loss to a natural disaster. Just take care of you and yours.

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

    Simple: Cover all potential contigencies…….

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

    I was asked what types of activies I taught those around me when we went out to the bush.

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

    I am not into the local Native culture, but am quite familiar with the culture of the Plains tribes I grew up around. Have a cousin on the rez in Montana and another one that works the rez’s in SD.

    Thank you for the warm welcome everyone!

    Any of the Plains’ people myths and legends that have a basis in reality?

    +1 That!

    Seems like a “living closer with nature” theme running through your profile. Very Refreshing!

    Like your grinning dog too :D

    Take Care, K
