Hello everyone from the southern tier of NY. My name is wayne and I just found this site while doing a search for survivalist forums. I have been into survival or "prepping" for a little over 15 years now. Over those years I have amassed a tidy collection of goodies and supplies. I have gone off on excursions of a month or more many times over the years and have put my learnings to the test. Many were successful....some were not. I also enjoy firearms and own many. My favorite is the AR platform however I own many other rifles and shotguns as well (AK's, FAL's, Enfields, remmy's, Winchesters, etc). I have a small farm and plenty of land, natural water supplies, and woods with plenty of wild game. I live in a VERY small town. It consists of a Fire station (that I am a member of) a Church (that I am a member of), 3 dairy farms, and about 2 dozen houses. Lucky for me, many people in town are like minded with me so I am incredibly happy with where I have chosen to hunker down if the SHTF. I hope to learn new ideas from you folks and I also hope to share my experience with you as we discuss the things that interest us.
