Howdy all. I'm a new member to the forum and a (mostly) newb to prepping. A friend of mine, @Jeff Brackett suggested I join. I've known him for quite a long time and what little I know about prepping I've learned from him. I've been aware that I should be doing more to be prepared for a tragic event occurring, but haven't taken the steps to do so. With the world getting crazier by the day I figure it is best to start learning now, even if I'm coming to the party a little late. My basic view of prepping is based on the show The Walking Dead. If you're familiar with the show, the main character, Rick, is thrust into an extreme situation when the zompocalypse happens. He and his family manage to get along and find other like minded souls along the way. Then they come up against Neegan, great as a character villain, but is a truly awful person. In the event the stuff hits the fan, I'd prefer that the world had more Ricks, less Neegans. Looking forward to learning from y'all and I hope I can contribute.
