    Hello all!!

    I am a new member here at survivalmonkey. I appreciate the forum and promise to abide by all rules and regulations, and promise not to be too big of a jerk (I read the sticky post at the top :))

    I am fairly new to prepping, less than two years, but feel I have lots to offer. Mostly a willingness to learn from others, but I'm also a very out-of the box thinker, which I feel is helpful in a survival situation.

    I am from the Midwest United States.

    If anyone has any questions, fire away!

    Thanks for having me!

    Thank you to each and every one of you for the warm reception. I hope to add lots of value to the forums in the future. One of the things that I feel sets me apart from some survivalists is that we have three young children, one with severe medical difficulties, and am confident in our abilities to sur-thrive (which is a word I think I made up) most urban survival situations.
    We are working on preparing for the possibility of taking on more rural survival scenarios, which is what I hope to learn some of from you all!

    @Videodork sur-thrive- I like it. It gives an optimistic twist to surviving. I am glad that you joined. Look forward to your posts.
