I'm a newbie at prepping.
If I took the Natl Geographic quiz on prepping I would probably survive 3-days ;-)

I'm a retired Navy mustang and currently work as an ocean transport research/analyst on Jacksonville.

We are now empty nesters and feeling... Vulnerable. Grew up camping. Raised in Iowa.

Way behind the pier curve, I know but I will be s good student of your experiences.

Thank you for serving our country.

Hello from Minnesota. And thank-you for your service.

Do not sell you prepping skill short. If you grew up in Iowa, probably at least 30% of the skills we are all desperately trying to figure out are second nature to you from your childhood. Although I LOVE to crack wise-ass jokes at the expense of I-wegians, I have never met one that was not a good, practical salt-of-the-earth guy.

===================================

Q: Why does the Mississippi river flow south?

A: Because Iowa sucks! :)

===================================

Iowa State almost had to forfeit their first game of the season, they couldn't get the cheerleaders to stop grazing on the field.

Sorry, I just cannot help myself. :) Welcome.

Welcome from a native Floridian. Went to Forrest on the Westside. Now I live in the woods, near the beach, shooting at the tourists. ;)

Welcome to the group from a soon to be ex-Illinoisan.
I have several ILL relatives wanting to move here to FL. I always tease them saying they would not be "ILL" if they moved. :)

Welcome from South Florida. Did a bunch of work in Nassau County, near Yulee.
I grew up in South Florida, until I could no longer stand what paradise had been turned into. We made our escape in 1995. And now Yulee has become another South Florida, just in the last few years.
We only go over to that side of the county a couple times a year when absolutely necessary.
Cows make the best neighbors.
