    Hi guys. first time on this site. I too found you through the Newsweek article sent to me by a friend. Ive been a prepper for a while, and I’m not where I want to be, but much further along than where I was. All I need to do now is to figure out how to use this site

    I also found this site via the Newsweek article. Although I am new to this site, I am NOT new to prepping.

    I also found this site via Newsweek.

    The husband and I are new to serious prepping. We have long had extra food and a few first aid items, but it wasn’t until about a week ago we had a discussion about where things are headed and decided to be more serious about it.

    I’ve dropped by to see if I can learn a little more about what we need to do.

    Newsweek brought me here, as well. The Newsweek article was posted on all the Pandemic Flu forums, which is where I got my start in ‘prepping’.

    I have been doing this for nearly 4 years,now. The last 3 have been spent publicly promoting Pandemic awareness & preparation, which led to the organization of ReadyMoms Alliance and the GetPandemicReady.org website.

    You’ve got some great information on here, that I hadn’t seen before and I’m cross-referencing it on my EmergencyHomePreparation website (with appropriate credits 😉 ).

    Wow! What great responses from the Newsweek article! 😀

    Welcome to all of you.

    As we have 5 grown children (with spouses), only one of them have listened to our message for preparedness, soooo….I sent them all the link to the article. One response so far, and it was fairly positive. We’ll just have to see about the others and continue praying for them.

    Again, welcome to all, I hope you find a comfortable niche here. Do not just read and absorb what other people have to say, ask questions and share your insights.

    Just remember, that the only stupid question, is the one left un-asked.

    Got to the site by blogspot and appreciate the forum and the moderators.
    Live in Flathead Valley Montana and have been focused on the issues of survival for quite a while.
    Looking forward to hearing from Preppers all over.
