Yes, I am trying to learn as much as I can about prepping. I have read some about prepping, but I have not done much yet. I am hoping that the group can help me focus my planning.
Yes, I think most preppers are serious, prudent people. However, several members of my family think preppers are nuts.
My son belongs to the group, and he invited me to the meetings. I have been interested in prepping for some time. It seems to me that a cautious man should be prepared, considering the numerous severe threats to America. I would like to see the group be a source of information for members. This could include books, websites, and personal experiences. If members have skills or knowledge to share, that would be great too. My wife and I plan to stay in our home. I would like to learn strategies to survive in our home. My main interests are water filtration and storage, and how much and what kind of food to store
I am 62 years old, and I am retired from the federal prison system. My wife and I live in Portage, and we have two grown children.
I am very grateful to George and others for creating this group. It is so good to talk in person with other preppers, rather than just reading books and the internet.
