Are you willing to learn how to get prepared?

Always interested to learn more useful knowledge and skills. It is an endless process, and what should be a lifestyle.

Are you willing to promote a positive image of Preppers?

Yes. That's been an issue hasn't it, and frankly opposition to prepping (survivalism) goes against common sense and how this nation was built. I think the show "Doomsday Preppers" actually sought out some extreme examples for shock value, but overall, isn't it actually irresponsible not to be prepared for certain possible emergency situations, esp. if you are a parent?

Are you willing to help organize regular scheduled meetups?

Will do what I can.

Preppers believe that "everyone" should get prepared. Are you willing to be inclusive of others no matter their race, religion, gender, ethnicity etc...?

Absolutely. The more who prepare, and better they each prepare, the better off we all are.

Tell us what got you interested in preparing and what you would like to see happen with this group.

The 1983 airing of "The Day After" on ABC was required watching when I was in HS. When I watched it, I actually had expected worse conditions, so even though most people found it frightening, it actually showed me it was survivable for those who prepared. As to the group, great to hear new information, ideas, and to meet like minded people.

Introduction

Long time preparedness enthusiast, as well as having interests in alternative energy and sustainable living, etc.

What Rick is saying about this Meetup Group

Refreshing to be in a room of like-minded people, and nice to meet those of you I did. Hope to meet everyone over time.
