Joining mostly to see what I can learn since I have very little knowledge to share on the subject of prepping. I grew up for a few years in the country or at least between it and the city but after yen years service in the USN I've become a city boy at least on the outer edge of town. The most prep worthy knowledge I have is a little about growing up around firearms, loading my own ammo, and casting my own bullets. I've never had a green thumb for gardens (my tomatoes this year were terrible), I've never canned anything, my jerky is made from store bought meat, and the biggest thing I keep in bulk is a large vacuum sealed bin of rice... yum... But I'm here to absorb what I can and offer what advice I can as well.
