With limited time and physical ability, I have still invested much in surfing the net and talking to my LDS/RLDS friends. I spend a lot of time pondering the perceived actions and consequences. I have not been a part of a group. Looking forward to learning more; but, after losing my memory twice in past 10 years, I have difficulty remembering what I learn, so I have to go over it and again.
I would hope that my friends already know and understand the seriousness of my being a prepper whether they agree or not. I spend a low of time explaining why everyone should consider being prepared for whatever the future holds, especially now with the coming financial crisis. I always present my case in a positive manner. If there is a better way, I'd like to know it because I am concerned for all the people I know and especially the poorest who will be hurt the most if they don't prepare now.
I have never let that enter in before. I have also always been known as the boss of 2d and 3rd chances. The only real thing I may object to is lack of integrity by anyone. I can't say I have ever met a prepper without integrity.
Simple. Years ago I had this strong calling to gather hiking and camping gear of all kinds and quantity. I don't know why I felt so strongly about it. I just knew I needed to do it. Then I felt the same about adding archery equip and excess fishing equip. Then I started feeling the strong innate need to buy weapons and bullets and collect food. That was when I became serious and started talking to my Mormon friends because they have been doing this a long time. They have given me great counsel and pointed me to many books of great wealth and knowledge for prepping. I also spent a lot of time searching the net for info survival and prepper sights and issues. All this has just increased my interest level more and more.
Jerry Moore, age 67, retired fed worker-Ft Leav I've been a somewhat prepper 25(+) yrs but only a more serious prepper about 10 yrs. It is a slow process on very limited funds and a wife that doesn't agree. God bless Goodwill.
What can I say. I now are one and I have been welcomed and received by all.
