    Good Afternoon... My name is Mike, I came here because I have friends on the site the recommended I give this a try. I am in Olympia with my wife and two kids. I am a self proclaimed gun nut and have recently began prepping on a small scale. I have had survival training and feel with the climate being what it is I need a refresher. I am sure there are alot of new things I don't know and am eager to learn. I am also a someone to rely on if need is there.

    When I hear Olympia I always think of Olympia beer back when it was the original brewery..
    Like so many old beer brands they are just trademarks made in contract breweries.
    And later Clint made it cool, well Clint makes most things cool..

    Happy to be here....would make a cliche' monkey joke like...Q: What's black and dangerous and lives in a tree? A: A monkey with a machine gun. ...or...Q: What do you call a monkey in a minefield? A: Baboom! ...but I will bet they have all been said
