Hello from Texas! I'm an Ex Navy Viet Nam veteran free thinking atheist sewer rat. Transplant from Michigan (the heat down here sucks). Married 31 years, two kids. Been a 'preppy' (or in my day we were called survivalists and/or retreaters) since the late 70's--anyone remember Mel Tappan, Bruce Clayton, C.G. Cobb, Jeff Cooper, Al J. Venter, et. al? Since moving to Texas 10 years ago, I got out of the <acronym title="Preparedness">prep</acronym> thing. Now with the possible demise of civilization as we know, I'm slowly getting back into it.
