    Just thought I'd say Hi and a bit of info.

    I got onboard serious prepping in '08,sold up and bought a doomstead out in the sticks for cash(No debt)and the rest turned out to be a 24/7 lifestyle living miles and miles away from other humans.Got some sheep/chickens and a veggie garden and I'm so into recycling others unwanted materials that I get called Tipper from some of my closest friends.I always thought that making something usable from things that get thrown away every day was a good starting point for the bad times to come,I have a knack for rebuilding and retro fitting things that others pay hard earned dollars for,I'm a cheap bastard.LOL.

    Nothing wrong with reusing and repurposing others "junk", sometimes thats the best way to go!

    Tipper, you are not alone in your nation. Lots of folks I know are from "down under" and call me mate also. One just rotated out of Afghanistan and is back home with his family.

    Back at you all.
    Now tell me,do I need to have an avatar?It doesn't really mean that much to me and I kinda like the arrow thingie that shows up being a male and all.

    Motomoma it wasn't hard,to a certain extent I was already there in mind.Probably they only thing that isn't always easy is once you have critters to look after being away from home for any length of time becomes a hassle and most of our close friends live in other states.The peace we have out our way is well worth it's weight in gold and not having to deal with the un-prepared on a daily basis is bliss.

    -06,not a real big fan of wars,like if I was defending mine then that's different,bring it on I say but the crap thats going on around the world it's just murder for minerals and such and probably the main reason for the state of things as they are.You never see the politicians at the front line.Glad to hear most of 'em get home,pity about the innocents.

    Thanks all,see ya out there.

    @Tipper , an avatar is simply a matter of self expression, nothing more. If you chose to keep the default one, no one will mind. You can always change it, if you change your mind. Be at peace.;)
