    What is your reason for wanting to survive?

    Why do you prep? What is the ultimate goal?

    For me it goes beyond just living through the bad times. Once the emergency is over this nation will need to be rebuilt. We will need to re-establish the government and re-assert our rights. I want to be a part of that process. I want to make sure that we don't come out of tradjedy and into a travesty. I guess I want to make sure that we have a constitutional Republic wherein our rights and freedoms are fully honored and protected. I want to avoid the mistakes that got us into trouble in the first place.

    I guess my goals aren't near as noble. I figure I was put onto this earth, and I'll struggle to stay here and on this side of the daisies as long as I possible can. If that just dealing with modern life, or if the SHTF, I'll plug along till the good Lord takes me. If someone decides to hurry my exit, I plan on making it very costly on whomever.

    I want to make sure my children and their children get a chance to live a whole lot longer than I do.

    1st I don't push around easy. I can go from 0 to a$$hole in about a heartbeat.

    2nd I figure I am here to help and if rebuilding is a part of it, I'm ok with that.

    Conformity has never been my thing. So while the others are busy dying, I'm going to do my best to live on............I guess it's the PUNK ROCK attitude in me.

    I was on a business trip in Miami when Hurricane Wilma hit. About 6 months later, I was in Montreal and the hotel I was staying at caught on fire. I just figured God was telling me to get my poop in a group.

    Since, the skills we have learned have greatly improved the quality of life my wife and I enjoy. So I guess in the end, I prep because I do not know how else to live anymore.

    My family has survived through the centuries to get me here. Should I just give up once the going gets a little tough? No reason needed to survive it's just what my family does.

    When I was growing up, there was this great poster (posters were big back then) that showed an eagle attacking a mouse in a full dive-bomber attack, and the mouse was giving that eagle the middle finger...well, let's just say he was shooting the bird (in case this is a family forum).

    The caption on the poster was: "Defiance - Never Give Up!"

    That is sort of my attitude on surviving. I will not give up.

    You know what they say - 90% of survival is mindset.

    I'm looking forward to a simpler life with all my family at home, all my kids play chess, pinochle, cribbage but since they grew up and moved to the city things are not as fun. Besides that I need help bucking my hay bales again.
