Shawn

New guy from pa

Recommended Posts

Im not exactly new here but havent put an official intro for myself. I currently live in Pikes County Pa but am from Sussex County, NJ originally. I got interested in prepping after Hurricane Irene knocked my power out for almost a week. Ive learned a lot since Ive been here but still have a long way to go.

Shawn, welcome! A hurricane helps people learn. We got hit with a tornado and then an eight day power outage. Next thing I knew, my wife started laying in supplies and making sure the generator had gas! Welcome aboard!!

Welcome aboard Shawn, new guy here as well and really digging the site and tons of info. Hey if she's a reader maybe reading one of the books might help with your wife, it was a game changer for my g/f and now she's totally onboard with me....sometimes even moreso LOL. So far my favorite has been Lights Out.

LOL 101matt I tried that when we had the hurricane. Power out for almost a week. After 2 days she left! Plus she has the "it couldnt possibly happen again" attitude sometimes. Very frustrating but she doesnt argue with me prepping so thats a start I guess. Ill try some books with her. Ive printed articles from Survivalcache before with little success.
