Hello from the Mitten

  1. Hi all,

    I have been a prepper since before it was mainstream. I have only recently gotten more serious about it in the last 2-3 years or so. I live outside of Detroit so civil unrest is near the top of what I prep for. I am employed full time as a Firefighter/Paramedic. My lovely bride of 7 years is also on board with prepping and for that I am very blessed. She is also an R.N. The bulk of our knowledge is in the Medical (obviously) and firearms side of prepping with some wilderness,hunting,fishing,camping etc experience. I am hoping to increase my knowledge in Communications and Bushcraft and so I hope you will be patient with me as I ask questions and continue to learn. I realize you can't know everything but I would like to know a little about a lot. Not a lone wolf style survivalist just want as much info as possible.

    Thanks for letting me introduce myself, I'll be posting soon.

    I hope you'll find most of our members to be both patient and kind (that's my experience here, anyway). One of the best things about being a Monkey! :)
