    Hi from the Bay Area

    Hi everyone, I'm from the SF Bay Area, California. I've been a prepper for about 10 years, first focusing on earth quake preparedness when I lived in San Francisco. When I started I would get those all in one 36 hour survival backpacks, but after about two years the plastics on those materials like the whistles and radio would degrade. Since then I've slowly upgraded my gear to more durable stuff.

    I grew up in an urban environment, and I don't have any bushcraft skills except what is gained by reading books and watching Youtube. I also cannot own a firearm because my wife does not like them, although I have trained to use them. So these two conditions have always been difficult to deal with when considering surviving in the apocalypse.

    I've visited these forums off and on for a long time, but I thought I'd finally sign up and introduce myself just in case I need to barter for some TP I wouldn't be a complete stranger.

    Welcome from Florida, Bob.
    I'm old enough that in the late 60's I wanted to live in Haight Ashbury.

    Hearty welcome from near DFW of Texas. Glad you made it over. Sure you will be informed the best strategy for Prepping would be to get the heck out of Californistan. Plenty of room around DFW. Holler any time.

    Welcome from southern AZ. Any plans to go over the wall. I escaped from IL in 2013 and so far they haven't found me.

    Yeah, my wife was anti-gun when we first got married. On vacation one time, she didn't know I had one in the RV, it looked like we would need it. She felt safer then. After that, she is ok with it.
