Howdy fellers ! I didn't see this part of the forum before posting a joke. Anyway, Magnus392 has been suggesting that I join SM for a while now, so I figured I would give it a go. I'm not a super hard core survivalist, or a complete whack-job, but I'm interested in learning more. This seems like a good spot to do just that Anyway, I'm living in Houston at the moment, and I gotta tell ya... that damn hurricane Ike taught me a thing or two about preparedness ! I bugged out probably four hours before traffic started jamming up on 45N, but it didn't take long before I realized I was severely under-supplied for such an event.
