Game time...

High probability of a storm strike. We are slated to, at the very least, be on the NW quadrant of a passing tropical system...usually not the best place to be. Granted we need the rain...but be aware for possible short term power outages and water system contamination.

I have been researching what is going on in this country for several months now and the more I learn the more I realize that I need to prepare for life as we know it to change drastically soon. How soon I have no idea but probably I think within the next couple of years. I bought an old motorhome that I am rebuilding so that we will have somewhere to live. Also we may use it to move to somewhere better suited for what is to come. Maybe Mo. or OK? Been hearing lots about these two states and what they are and have done to make sure that the Fed does not overun them. Knowing I am not living in a good place to be self reliant in reguards to food and such. We are also working on our food storage and trying to find a group here in case we don't get moved before whatever happens happens. I have a background in many things. Mostly fixing things. I can usually fix most anything I need to fix. I also have training in law enforcment and Emergency Medicine but several years ago. I think I know how to get prepared and what is needed just have to find it all and get to a good place.

Hey all, new to the Preppers Network.
live in Palm Beach County, FLA, single father of 3 wonderful boys and I am just now starting to take these preparations issues seriously I am sorry to say. Always stored canned and long term food, that has come in quite handy lately, been out of work for about a half a year like lots of folks. Thank goodness for family. Anyway, got the idea to start getting things together for me and my family, and then because I am an inveterate entrepreneur, I decided to start a company to do the same for others. Going into long term storage, GMO free and MSG free dried food, solar, and a couple of other things. Capital is an issue when you're out of work so its going slow but I am getting there. Thanks for the network, getting all kinds of ideas.

New to the site, but long time prepper... Currently in Florida --- moving back to Washington State...



41yr old MWM Retired USAF Cop, NRA Police Instructor and Glock Armorer living in Tampa Bay. Hoping to meet those in my area that would like to form a Meet Up group or Alliance.


I've made a couple posts, so I figure I better introduce myself! My husband and I have always known one day stuff was going to hit the fan. My in-laws recently figured this out too, and got us re-interested in prepping. It's nice to see so many other ppl have figured this out too! Anyway...we're "thirty-ish" and we have 2 sons, 11 and 13 years old. We live in a pretty big city, but we are blessed enough to be in a house and not an apartment. We have a 10k gallon pool that I guess we could purify water from for a while if we had to.
Five or so years ago a truss was dropped on my husband head and he was forced to go from residential framing to civil take-offs after a couple years of not being able to work. Then economic hardships hit us a couple years ago, with 2 lay-offs in 2 years. He can shoot, fish, cook, hunt, and do a lot of manual stuff, but heavy stuff hurts his back and then he's laid up for a day or so. The boys and I have strong backs, though my sons work ethic needs to improve! LOL I love to garden and am working on getting our yard ready to grow food. So far I've just grown tomatoes and a jalepeno plant. The hanging tomato basket did really well, but the one tomato plant might need a mate or something, since it flowers but doesn't give us anything to eat. I guess I'm getting into a topic for another thread though! :offtopic: We're both really good with computers, but I have a feeling that will be a useless skill at some point.
Our family is active in Boy Scouts, and has a lot of camping gear, so we're ahead of some I suppose1 We still have a LOT to do though!

Quick Article from A.N.T.S. re: 'Superbug'

This is getting alot of attention in the news lately, though frankly not surprising...nature adapts good or bad.

From A.N.T.S.
A.N.T.S - Americans Networking To Survive Antibiotic resistance is a type of drug resistance where a microorganism is able to survive exposure to an antibiotic. Genes can be transferred between bacteria in a horizontal fashion by conjugation, transduction, or transformation. Thus a gene for antibiotic resistance which had evolved via natural selection may be shared. Evolutionary stress such as exposure to antibiotics then selects for the antibiotic resistant trait. Many antibiotic resistance genes reside on plasmids, facilitating their transfer. If a bacterium carries several resistance genes, it is called multiresistant or, informally, a superbug or super bacteria.The primary cause of antibiotic resistance is antibiotic use both within medicine and veterinary medicine. The greater the duration of exposure the greater the risk of the development of resistance irrespective of the severity of the need for antibiotics.

Product review...S.O.Tech Go Bag Ext. and Mission Go Bag

S.O. Tech has 2 products I like, Go Bag Extended and Mission Go Bag. I was looking for something in the bailout bag arena. Something to basically get me home should a sudden disaster occur. Something I could easily stash in my truck that was much smaller than a standard bug out bag. I think these fit the bill. these certainly aren't cheap items...but you get what you pay for.

The Go Bag Extended is perfect for compact carbines (broken down) with side pouches for spare mags, loops for attachments and larger pockets for other necessities.
In mine: AR-15, 6 spare mags, 2- G21 mags, IFAK, water container, water filtration, energy bars, weapons cleaning kit, Wiley goggles, RMJ Loggerhead, shemagh, survival tin fishing kit.

The Mission Go Bag is similar to a messenger bag, but with plenty of pockets inside....the problem is I tend to over stuff it.
Glock 21, 2 spare mags, 2-AR-15 mags, water, silver coinage, binos, notepad,multitool, knife sharpener, knife, flashlight, blowout kit, radiac meter, stripped MRE, gloves.
