Been lurking around for the past few weeks and figured I should say something. I have found a great deal of information on this site and everyone seems to be very willing to share. I live in Southern California with my wife, and have felt that we needed to take some kind of action, but what? This site has provide many great suggestions and ideas. What I have learned so far it that no matter how little or insignificant your action may seem, doing something, anything, is better than doing nothing at all. Every extra can of food, bottle of water, or roll of toilet paper can help improve your chances of survival. Hopefully, somewhere along the way, I can add some tidbits of informations.
