Figure it was time to introduce myself. I am Joe and been working on being prepared for about two years. I by no means have all the answers but have learned a bunch from Bear. I live in a small town of about 200 people, every time I try and talk to anyone here I always hear "nothing will happen here we live in a small town". Problem I see is we are only like a mile off the interstate. With everything going on I have had a few people asking questions but none wanting to work on setting up anything. So far it's me, my girlfriend, and two adult kids that live only a block and half away. Have a buddy that has weapons and ammo out his ears. His attitude is you have the food and I have the weapons. True but trying to get him on board has been rough. He has a very small house with no room, so at least he has said here are some funds to help stack the food. One starting to get on board and the kids have done the same saying your keep the stuff and we will come to your house. They are both good shooters so that will be help with security when needed. I would say I am not a master at much but am willing to learn and try anything. If anyone is looking for a group in this area please let me know.
