    Born a city boy, but grew up the majority of my life in a small Tennessee town with a population of about 500.
    I now live in a town that is small by some standards (est pop 50,000) but still to large for me.
    I would move, but for certain reasons (mostly wife and kids), I am unable to.
    I foresee an economic collapse in my lifetime and would love to live off the land, but due to my circumstances, I am forced to learn some urban survival.
    That is why I have come here.
    In the event of an economic collapse or PAW, I have basic survival skills, but always would like to learn more. Namely hunting... I have guns that sit in my house for protection and occasionally go to the range. It seems like a waste to me if I don't take up hunting.
    Any Florida people who think the same way as me, feel free to message me. It seems most the people I know seem to think they will always be able to rely on city water and the local grocery store.
    Maybe I can find some people who think different here.

    Hosster, If you don't mind my asking what county are you in? I am west of Gainesville 30 miles or so in Gilchrist county. I am not urban like you, I have to pipe sunlight into my hidden chunk of heaven.
