Hello, A few friends recommended this forums so I thought I'd check it out. It looks good so far. I live in a small town in north central missouri. I'm into trapping, hunting, primitive skills (especially longbow making), wild edibles, natural medicine (I'm trying to raise medicinal plants and I have a ton to learn). I'm a former Marine. Currently I'm a volunteer firefighter and first responder. RJ BTW, I was planning on lurking awhile but the below quoted line kept showing up, and I got tired of looking at it "Hello RJB, Our records indicate that you have never posted to our site before! Why not make your first post today by saying hello to our community in our Introductions forum. Why not start with your first post today and become an active part of Survival Monkey Forums now! "
