Greetings everyone. Just starting to get involved in being prepared and trying to research/learn as much as I can for myself and my family ( wife and 12yo son ). Recently got into firearms ( also got my CCW ) and need to start working on my 72hr pack ( seems to be the #1 on most of the lists I have seen ).

 

I was a boy scout and am an Army veteran and hae been an electrician for the past 13 or so years.

 

Hope to be involved and learn as much as I can.

 

Ernie

Welcome to the forum! Hope that you find lots of useful information as you get started. The trick is to find a way to take in a bunch of info without getting totally overwhelmed, and it sounds like you have a good grasp on that already (focusing on your 72-hour pack), so I'd say that and your background put you well ahead of a lot of other people who are just starting out. Looking forward to seeing your posts!

    • Great thread. My son is attending a higher-end university in VT. His tuition is over $60k a year - can you imagine getting out of school with almost  a quarter million dollars' debt and just starting at the bottom of the barrel? I started working construction when I was 20, learned an incredible amount, worked my ass off, and now I have a comfortable job with zero college debt.   
    • Yep, lay low, gather intel, keep your signature as small as possible, to the leaving and the dead. Keep an eye out for masses of people - hopefully there's a network of some kind to give you a heads up a few hours before they descend on you, so you can get a start on a secondary BOL. Run, don't stand and fight.
