hello from Vermont!

Postby foliage-leaves » Sun Oct 31, 2010 2:50 pm

Hello from northern Vermont! Started getting serious about prepping 6 months ago. My husband is on board with me. We got a few of the essentials. We do not know anyone in our circle of friends and family that want to do this. We are not letting there opinions stop us from doing what we know is the right thing to do. We are so happy we came across this sight. I am prior Navy and Army National Guard. Thankyou everyone for coming together to help each other. I hope that we can post something to help at least one person. Thanks again.

Hello from Idaho. Just got on and can't believe no ones said hi yet. Glad to have you here. You've found a lot of great people. Be sure to ask if you have any questions. Is a little slower than normal today.

thankyou. My husband is on board. He does not think im crazy. Im sure my family and friends do! lol. He is more hands on. Im the one with the patience to research the web, books, etc. I find and show, explain to him and we practice to know how to do it. I will be learning how to set up a tent, make a fire when it is dry and wet. He knows how to do this already. I have been camping throughout my life but never "had" to do any of the guy stuff. LOL. So now i will be learning how to do this come warmer weather. It is snowing here in VT. There are other ways to build a shelter with branches etc. I will learn these as well. It hopefully will be a great learning experience plus some fun. I hope my husband has some patience with me. A boy scout told me that i should not throw out my dryer lint because it is a quick way to start a fire. So believe it or not i have been ziplocking dryer lint! We have been working on our BOB's. There is a great Army Navy surplus store less than 2 hours from me. The packs are great. Learned from an old timer no matter what line your packs with heavy plastic bags. There is alot of info i have gathered in 6 months that we can make work for us. I know I will learn alot from this sight and I hope i can add something to help someone else.

thanks for the welcome. one of my long time dreams is to go to Alaska! One day i will. i am very happy for you being there. im also glad my husband did not think i was crazy when i approached him with prepping. he is a quiet person - not one to take on a long car trip. LOL. there is so much to know and to do but not impossible with a sight like this. im very thankful that i found it.
