Evening, Ladies and Gents.. I couldn't find a 'noob' section in which to post, so mods please correct me and move this thread if it's in the wrong place.

Anyhoo, let's see, I've always been interested in survivalism, more so recently. Typically, I'm the prepared one in whatever group I'm in, but I always think I'm not prepared enough. Paranoia, you say? whistle So here I am, plan on learning a lot from this site, and hopefully I'll have a little something to contribute as well. Oh, I'm in MD. laugh

Welcome to the site.

Survivalism isn't a term I would use to describe the nature of this forum, but you will find a lot of useful information and ideas about survival issues and aspects here. Feel free to contribute. Sometimes we spawn political discussions, but as long as you are germaine, respectful, and not too antagonistic you should do fine. You will find a pretty big knowledge pool of information here, and lots of folks with lots of experience and insight. Hope you enjoy and look forward to hearing from you.

Welcome aboard!

Set aside some time for some serious reading. Set aside a LOT of time. Then start saving your milk money, because you're going to see a LOT of things you're going to want to get discussed here.

I look at the site as a "preparedness" site rather than a "survivalist" site.

For me, being prepared means that when the power goes out for a while I'll be drinking my coffee, staying warm and eating well rather than freezing, looking for a hotel and trying to decide which end of the carpenter ant it was that was edible.

Enjoy yourself!

Thanks, all. True, preparedness is most definitely a better word. Like I said, I never feel prepared enough, and I've already gotten a few gems from this site. I've lurked around the site a little bit (and a couple of others) trying to decide which I wanted to join, and this one won by a landslide lol. Thanks again, see you all around.
