    TX Panhandle Prepper

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Matt and I am new to both prepping and to the forum. I am a long distance truck driver, hauling chemicals. I am working on a proper EDC kit, as I am woefully unprepared at this point. I am and have been a ham radio operator for over 2 decades and have the comms aspect pretty much under control. I am definitely ready for Ma Bell to close up shop. I am currently looking at the prospects of widespread civil unrest surrounding the 2020 elections. There seems to be plenty of evidence pointing in that direction, especially the extreme polarization in our country and the tendency of some unhinged people to incite violence among young snowflake types. I am honestly surprised that more is not already occurring. I see things going as is until June or July 2020 and then steadily downhill from there. I want to be prepared, regardless of whether my speculation is correct or not. That is the reason that I joined the forum; to learn from the experiences of everyone else here. Thanks for the great site and have a great day!

    Welcome, welcome!! I believe it's never too late to start preparing, because having something prepared is better than having nothing prepared. Do a little something every day. It adds up.

    Howdy doody from up in Foat Wurth. I keep getting ominous bad old vibes about the commie..socialist..democrat Muslim coalition going nuts close to the election too. We plan to do like John Wayne and when the food and ammo runs out we save the last few rounds for ourselves.

    Welcome aboard!
    I used to drive trucks and the Texas Panhandle caused me my biggest concern due to the thick fog I sometimes encountered. Should I slow down and get creamed by a bull-hauler or speed and take the chance of creaming Schneider?
