It's nice to see so many new members joining Survival Monkey. As someone who has moved many, many times in my life, I know what it's like to be the new kid on the block. In the beginning, it seems as though everyone else have been friends for a long time. There are illusions to inside jokes, references to family and friends in common, and a general sense of [SIZE=-1]camaraderie that you might not feel a part of quite yet[/SIZE]. Rest assured that this forum is an open and welcoming group. We look forward to your input and getting to know you as you get to know us, We're pretty easy going in temperment. We always enjoy discussions about prepping, politics, world events, and weaponry. Even when we disagree, we try to be polite to one another without walking around with a stick up our butts. So new friends, jump in and join the fun. Before you know it, you'll feel as much at home here as we old timers do. Welcome all.
