Now that I have a child of my own, I feel it's my duty as the provider/husband/father to do everything in my power to protect my family.

Aholes like me don't come along every day; I need to stick around and had my own special sarcasm and dark humor to every event. As my mom says, "I'm special!" :)
The next time I get to NM you and I have to spend an evening drinking beer and punching hippies! :D

Absolutely! If you ever make your way down here, you and your better half always have a place to stay! I'm always up for a beer or two but we better not punch the hippies, they bruise easy.

Why do I prep? That is a question I had not really thought about until I saw this thread. I knew I needed to prep but never really thought about why I need to do it. I am mew to preppeing. I discovered I have several reasons.
#1) My wife. She is a fighter, she has had 11 back surgeries. The last 2 were 10 hour surgeries 7 days apart. She had lost 7 inches im height from Oct to June. The doctors were amazed she was able to get around as well as she did. Then she was up and walking 1 day after the second surgery.
#2 My 3 daughters that live at home they are 11, 12, and 14. Two oldest will have a hard time but the youngest loves fishing she goes at least once a week in the canals near our house. She also wants to go hunting when she turns 12 she and I are taking a hinter safety class, then I will have to figure out where to take her hunting probably for squirrel or rabbit.
#3) I also have a 24 year old daughter who is married and has a 14 month old son. I want to see my grandson grow up so I need to be ready for what ever happens to protect them all.

Sorry for the long post.

Yeah, I can't imagine life without my wife. Her family is pretty cool too so it's my responsibility to care for them all. They don't think like me but they are aware of what I am doing. They also know to beat feet over here if it gets ugly.

I guess my goals aren't near as noble. I figure I was put onto this earth, and I'll struggle to stay here and on this side of the daisies as long as I possible can. If that just dealing with modern life, or if the SHTF, I'll plug along till the good Lord takes me. If someone decides to hurry my exit, I plan on making it very costly on whomever.
This pretty much sums it up for me as well.

What do you expect after the crisis is over? Do you think that the country will just naturally turn back to the type of government that you enjoy or is it not an interest that you have?

My feeling is that after the crisis we will have to rebuild the republic to get rid of the abuses of government and return to a free society.

I hope that is what happens. But the way society is today, you just don't know how will have power.
