47- year old life-long preparedness-minded individual currently living in D/FW-area in Texas. Looking to network with like-minded individuals for the purposes of establishing a network of contacts and ideally starting or joining a MAG or group which is mutually compatible for my family & I. Skill sets include: intermediate weapons proficiency (former Army infantryman), physical fitness, basic medical skills (former EMT), long-term food storage, hunting, fishing, and basic mechanical & carpentry skills. Skills I am working hard on learning are communications (HAM), gardening, canning, raising livestock and improving my knowledge of medical, tactical, mechanical, & carpentry skills. If you are within a few hours of the D/FW metroplex and feel there is some common ground and would like to know more, please feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
