Well my gf and I have grown an interest in hiking. Which in turn got me searching/collecting survival gear that fits our needs. Which lead me to growing interest in prepping. Now gf thinks I'm ridiculous but she embraces it lol. I'm currently in the NY Air National Guard, which we respond to natural disasters all over NY state. With that said my military training/experience has opened my eyes to the realality of how important it is to be prepared for anything at anytime.
