    rsbrad4d, I appreciate your service and looking out for your family! You are very welcome here and hope you will share your wisdom and experience.

    Zazzu, Welcome to the forum and good luck in your prepping with a less than perfect situation. DH and I first prepped back in the late seventies, and were out of it for almost 30 years! We have many members who also live in the suburbs or even the City. There are also many who struggle with partners who aren’t on board yet. Good for you for taking the initiative to take care of business. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help and hope you share with us.

    Not so new to being prepared because I am a child of the paranoid ’50’s. lol My husband and I have a whole passel of adult children and grandkids between us. (total at last count was 23 kids and grands) I am not certain where we will land as we are relocating within Colorado. The money/job crash got us and we are in recovery again. I find that I am an avid gardener and canner. I also do all the down home crafty things like quilting and spinning. DH is being pulled along in my wake so he is learning as he goes. We also have a small business on the side with preparedness products. If there is anything we can do to help let me know.

    Just remember Rule 37: “There is no such thing as ‘overkill’. There is only ‘Open fire!’ and ‘Time to reload’.”

    Brand new prepper…old lady in Florida. Have a wooded acre, septic and well. Need to know how to convert electric run well and pumping to manual, How to get neighbors interested in pooling skills, goods, etc., for survival and safety. Don’t know how to use gun, but can cook, put up food(canning), sew make candles, etc. Any ideas?

    I’m a newbie. I mean a total newbie. Like I joined about an hour ago.

    I’m so glad to have found you guys. I’ve been thinking about this for quite a long time and I’m pleasantly surprised that the group is already in existence. My only disappointment is that we don’t seem to have a group in Maryland, so Pennsylvania seems to be the closest to me.

    I’m really scared about what’s going on in my country. The current administration is undoubtedly trying to push us into a European-style socialist state. I don’t want any part of this.

    I saw this kind of crap when I was growing-up in my native Cuba. Always demonizing businesses, wealthy citizens and pretty well any one who disagreed with them. My parents took me out of the Island so that I could have liberty. That’s the reason I’m so dismayed about what going on. My parents gave-up everything (and I mean everything to see that their children could live free. And now these people are attempting to put the Socialist/Communist yoke on us.

    No way and now how, will I allow my son to be enslaved this way. Unless the American people take back our Country and restore our Constitution, we’re in a certain path to a catastrophic tomorrow . I intend to learn from this group on how to survive the coming mayhem.

    One last thing…I’m totally in favor of the Arizona immigration law. No one has the right to live in the United States of America. I don’t much care about self-identified “Hispanics” who bitch and moan about our laws. We are either a Nation of laws or a Nation of identity politics. If we become the latter, we will soon be a non-nation.

    Welcome to all our new folks and thanks for sharing your circumstances. Snoel, you have some great skills that any community of preppers would be glad to have! Unfortunately, most people no longer know what used to be common living skills. I hope you will jump in and share.

    Jose, great post. Don’t worry about being new to this. Most of us have been where you are not too long ago. You will be amazed at how much you can learn very quickly. There are a lot of great people on this forum who can help. Don’t let it overwhelm you, just take one step at a time. Most of agree with you about the direction of this country. I am doing what I can politically to change the direction, but preparing in case it doesn’t work.
