Hey there. So, I'll make this easy. I'll split this up into some semi-bullet points so you don't have to dig through my ranting to get to know me.
What I Prep For:
Foreign military invasions, man-made pandemics, biological warfare, and basically anything else that doesn't make the environment kill me faster than it would naturally.
How I Prep:
I prep by preparing myself with all the skills and equipment I might need. I've got three BOBs. One for man made apocalypses, one for natural disasters, and then a WIP for the whole "Zombie Apocalypse". My friend talked me into it.
My Skills:
I break my skills up into three categories. Proficient, skilled, and novice. I'm proficient with a rifle, I've got a strong medical background, and I'm pretty damn good at general survival (Think alone in the woods with a knife kind of survival). I'm skilled at repairing vehicles and weaponry, I'm decent at coercion and negotiation, and I know a few different languages (Don't ask me to write any of them, but I can speak them well enough to handle myself.). I'm a novice when it comes to building things, and I'm starting to learn how to work electric wiring and some basic engineering.
What I'm Here For:
I'm here looking for some more information, and I'd really like to find a network that spans my area. If you'd like to chat or would like to ask me anything, feel free!

Thanks for reading, everyone, and I look forward to surviving the end of the world with you all!

A bit off topic to post here, but I want to make sure you see this. I stumbled across a bandage a few weeks ago that I'm just crazy about. I'd never heard of it before. It's called the "Israeli Bandage".

^A link to one of them on Amazon. I just think it's awesome because you can use it for just about anything, which let me take out almost 5 lbs from my medkit.
Now that I've said that, thanks for the hospitality, and as always, stay frosty, guys and gals.

Hey and welcom :D I've seen those bandages before, actually I got to use some as a part of a training day for work over the summer (med tech assistant, canadian military) It was neat and I liked it (need to get my hands on a few) also (I'm unsure if you know about it that is why I'm saying it) look at quick clot. It is amazing

Quick clot, like clotting powder, or something else? I have a few pouches of clotting powder, and I love it. Haha.
