Good to have you aboard, Eric. You'll find lots of good info (and good community here). Don't get overwhelmed. There's lots to learn. Build your supplies and your knowledge slowly, day by day....learn a new skill today...pick up a new supply tomorrow....and ask questions. Have fun!I'm from Oklahoma, and I'm growing more interested in preparedness for my family in an inevitable crisis. It's not because I'm looking for a new hobby, but simply because my eyes are open to the state of our country and of this world.
