Welcome to the forum. I never get tired of welcoming anyone, especially a fellow Texan and here lately it looks like we (Texans) are rolling deep every where! Even as short a time as you have been preping your way ahead of the vast majority of folks in this world. You just gotta keep chipping away at it. There are a lot of good minds here and a lot of good ideas, even some of us old dogs are learning some new tricks! So feel free to jump in with both feet. Hope to see you around and see you often.
I hope you'll find everything you're looking for. We've been prepping for a better future for over 12 years and for us each day does look brighter.
It's been our experience to learn and benefit from others who have come before us. It is our secret recipe for avoiding the mistakes and pitfall of others. Learn, practice and horn your skills. I hope to see many post from you so that we can benefit from you as well.
Hope for the best and prep for the worst! This requires making plans and re-evaluating those plans (from time to time). Now is a better time to start than any.
This list goes on. If you like you can PM privately for more advice and support.
