I first becme a survivalist in the late 70's whe that other loser was in the white house. We had hostages in Iran, very high interest and inflation.
I was living in the PNW and the sirvival 'plan ' was to locate to south Oregon, as professed by Mel Tappan and others.
I didn't do that because we had a pretty sef sufficient set up where we were.
I now live in Florida, and since we have the occasional hurricane, being prepared is the thing to do.
There is a lot of good info here, and I hpoe to be able to offer some valuable input from time to time.
