    Salutations from Upstate New York

    Hello everyone.

    To be totally honest, it wasn't until recent events that I began to take the idea of prepping and self-sufficiency seriously. Watching the world spiral into chaos with dwindling faith in authority and being at the mercy of local supply stocks has been a horrific experience. Those closest to me are self-proclaimed preppers and seeing them move through this disaster with both ease and confidence has truly opened my eyes. They were right, and I feel like a fool for ever doubting something like this could happen.

    Hopefully I can make up for lost time and get my head in the game with a little bit of help (and most deserved 'we told you so').

    Welcome.

    Where would "upstate" be?

    The generic term is anyplace north of the bowel of the Hudson river, aka "Da City".

    Lots of nice places in NY if you avoid the cities..........

    Finger Lakes Region, far far away from any and all cities, luckily. Thanks for the welcome.

    Hearty welcome from up at Foat Wurth TX. The best prep a person from Noo Yawk could do in your geography is stay away from Noo Yawk City. A billion religion of peace folks from 200 plus countries are out to kill us infidels and NYC is the head of the snake. Plenty of room in Texas for rational yankees.

    Welcome from the North Country (Watertown Area). Yeah the shelves being empty woke my wife up to what I have been saying for decades. She doesn’t call me a hoarder much anymore.

    It is an evil society that blames the tool for the actions of its user.
