    Zimmy Wait, I'm not ready!

    I'm new to the site and looking forward to learning a lot here. But first about me.

    I'm a 49 year old grandpa with a great family. That's why I prep in a nutshell.

    Earlier in life I've been a farmer, a carpenter, an Airborne Infantryman, a millwright, a butcher, and now I work with machine automation and programming.

    My lean in prepping is more towards learning old self sufficiency skills from the old days. Canning, raising animals, Guns, etc.

    If there's a HAM radio group, I hope to get in it. My callsign is (OPSEC.)

    Welcome aboard. Read in the Survival comms forum and check in with @BTPost he's our chief comms guru. There are a few other hams hanging in the trees with the rest of us. I've deleted your call sign for now, we take OPSEC fairly seriously.
