    Good day from somewhere between Houston and San Antonio! I'm a mildly driven prepper doing a bit here and there over the past couple of years. It all started after my first couple of hurricanes. WTF are those things?!?! I grew up on an island in north Atlantic (extreme east coast of Canada) with lots of nasty weather, but those hurricanes you all get in the parts are lunacy.

    Anyways, I'm also an avid shooter, reloader, and professional rum drinker since college, with a slightly foul f&%*in' foul mouth. :D See you folks around.

    Mind your blearin' round here as the mods don't tolerate much ballyragging.
    S'ok to be a bit biniky - most the old dogs here are from hard roads but as you prolly know - the older the crab the tougher the claws.
    Glom a cold one and wait for a fair wind, you'll get one.

    Nah. We're mostly fairly friendly since we get the vast majority of our aggressions out on the ice either playing or watching hockey.

    Right on.

    You just have to say that really fast with a smidgen mix of irish accent. Get a few weird looks from a few of the mainlanders, but they've adjusted to us. ;)
