Good morning to all

I am ADRskew, currently serving active duty in the USCG. Saddly my prepping has not gone as fast as I would like due to PCS, deployment and finances. But I have a plan, a back up plan and a fall back plan. Finding this site and all of the fine personnel aboard has given me hope for the long haul. My current load out for tier 1 is what I carry everyday to work, a 3 color led light, 2 pocket knives both gerber, 2 lighters, firstaid kit. My tier 2 is a molle vest, ar15 with 7 Mags, 870 with 6 point CAR stock light and 29 rounds read ammo, alice ruck packed for 72+ hours. Its fairly standard and falls in line with the majority of the posts here. For my better half and youngins I had to go with the OTC 72 hour kits but they are being cleaned up. My tier 3 and BOB/BIB plans are OPSEC. As I can I will offer up advice or a Skewed way of looking at things and strive to be a productive member of this seemingly elite society.

 

 

With respect

Skew

Hey guys, Shea here, glad to have found this place. I am completely new to the prepper world; my brother managed to get me researching some things over the past few weeks and I've decided that being a little more prepared for the unexpected would not be a bad thing. I'm a 38 year old mother of two. Former teacher and current housewife, I have some time on my hands. I've got wilderness first responder training, and used to have a concealed carry. Used to life roughing it as a child in rural maine. My husband is definitely not interested in this, so it will be my responsibility to prep for the whole family, way under the radar. To "cover" my new activity, I've renewed my interest in camping, have told my husband that I'm going to update our hurricane prep(Texas) and have tasked him with increasing our ammo supply as I want him to take me out to the range for more practice. I've begun initial prep on BOBs for each of the family members, and have increased food supplies on hand with the guidance of a friend in LDS. No way to answer most of the questions everyone has...I'm mostly starting from scratch. I'll be reading up and asking questions as I go through the start of this process. Thanks.

welcome aboard shea. it will be easier for you as a woman to get your husband involved than it is for a man to get his lady involved. it will be interesting to watch you prep your family for bad times ahead all the while watching you change your husbands mind and get him involved too. B)

Hi guys, I've just joined and thought I'd give a quick 'how-ya-goin' before my first real post.

I'm MistiK and I've been fascinated with wilderness survival and plain living in the bush since I was quite young.

I live in Aus. and grew up in Broken Hill, so I spent most of my time in the bush and have come to love it.

I enjoy WSHTF novels and movies, a couple of my faves are The Tommorrow Series (Not the movie -.-), The Road (Sorry, just the movie :( ), Lost I thought was okay because I liked to picture myself in that situation. I suppose that's all I can think of now.

Good day. :)

Hi Folks

Lurked a bit and like what I see so I figured why not. My friends call me Doc (silly nick but it stuck) and my BOV is a 83 K30, thus the username Dr K30.

 

My time online is pretty limited so don't look for a whole lot from me, but I will pitch in where I can, especially when it comes to serious offroad vehicles.

 

I am a mechanic and I do know a bit about the newer fuel infected electronic stuff, but I'm not one of those who is all up to date on the newer models. Most of what i service is oil field equipment, so give me a 30 year old diesel and I'm right at home.

Even where the contributions are, I know I miss stuff or overlook things I take for granted. I'm sure you'll add some things that cause me to do the forehead, "I should have had a V8" after reading it...lol. Besides, everyone brings a unique perspective based on ideas and experiences which added to the whole, makes a ton of info available.

Hi I'm Santay from a town near the DFW area. I'm interested in preparing for the possibility of future economic hardships that I believe could

be brought on by Wall Street or an oil shortage. Actually, I just want to be prepared for whatever happens!
