Besides shooting with NCOWS (cowboy action group similar to SASS) I also enjoy cooking. But the one that has lasted since a small child is drawing and painting. I don't paint much any more with the typical medias but do some on computers. Here is a site that wanted to run some of my stuff from my old site New Dawn Micro when shut it down New Dawn Micro - Gallery. I tried photography for awhile but best I could do with that was take snap shots so not my thing. Prepping to me is not due to thinking the end of the world but local problems that can turn into long term shortages such as I saw when we went through Hurricane Andrew in Homestead Florida. Been buying long term foods since then, but having no power, water, phones and food for 3 months will make one think about being better prepared for these kinds of natural disasters if nothing else. A lot of my prepping gear also works for hunting trips and camping etc.
