This is a discussion on Where to begin as a new prepper within the General Prepper and Survival Talk forums, part of the Survivalist, Prepper, Bushcrafter, Forest Rangers category; Originally Posted by The Tourist Obviously "the computer" is not my forte' obviously.

If Denton feels I crossed a line, I wouldn't be angry. I'd be embarrassed.

How do you equate this place into a hobbyist forum????????????
I have been at this for 40+ years, my driving force was and is to survive whatever I could, have, and what may well now be coming.
This COVID19 bug was just a little bump in the road for us here because of the preps, lacked nothing.
That statement to me is an insult, I am sure it is to others also,
and you used it in your parting statement before leaving us for a more receptive forum.
My hobbies are, hematology, biology, amateur radio and cooking, nowhere does this survival preparation dovetail in as a hobby.
Flying was a hobby that turned into a profession for 10 years, that I had to drop out of.
I am a student of history, mostly of WW2, and the evolution of the US into a industrial giant in the 30's, not a hobby to me.
I am sure you will remember that I corrected you in a statement relative to a "U" boat on the great lakes, that is from my studies.
Saving your life may be a hobby to you, but not to me or others here.
I am here for several reasons, I do not need to be here for any survival information.
The two prime reasons I am here are, to help others with information I have garnered over the decades, second reason is,
To keep a finger on the pulse of the nation as others see it where they live, those that think like most of us do here.
I do not need this forum in any way, certainly not as a hobby.
I work on guns for a profession, that was a hobby 60 years ago that turned into a profession, I give advice here on them also.

But survival is a hobby??? REALLY???
Frankly, being a part of the terrified masses doesn't appeal to me. Others were screaming about empty shelves when the panic hit. My wife just said good job.
I wouldn't say it is an obsession... more like scratching an itch in the back of your mind.. for me anyhow.

Well all this lively discussion go me motivated to to get a couple of kitchen knives sharpened up in case we get a chub of baloney in one day and need to slice a sandwich..spread some mayo and slice and onion. Thats why I always carried a Kamp King in my days as a traveling salesmen. We could eat in the motel room. There ya go.
