Do you have any skill sets to bring to the group?

As a former Soviet Army officer I was trained in firearms, hand-to-hand combat techniques (SAMBO sparring anyone?), and survival skills in sub-zero temperatures (very useful for Florida). Love cooking and can make a delicious meal out of nothing. Very good with tools: certified (by my wife) as the best handyman around (or at least the cheapest one - she gets my services for free)... the house, especially so, after winning the competition from our then five-year-old son. Great drinking companion: upholder of ancient Ukrainian tradition to never leave a drunk buddy alone at mercy of a policeman, a mother-in-law, or any other adverse natural element. Basically - can shoot, brake bones, hit nails, eat, and drink all at the same time. ;-)

What aspects of disaster preparedness and self sufficiency interest you most

That's already serious: I am looking to join/gather a cell of ready for everything individuals in West Boca. Hunting, self-growing of foods, basic medical skills, and energy independence are my primary interests in preparation for the emergencies. Will be glad to discuss those topics directly via [masked].


Current West Boca resident, former citizen of the USSR and as such am the most unyielding anti-communist. Know few guys in this community, including Neal Wiseman, and while not agreeing with him on some politics, respect him as a true Patriot.
