Something has moved me to start preparing for God knows what. I don't know if the political climate, awareness of natural disasters, or God tapping me on the shoulder, but something is grabbing my attention. I recently acquired weapons, and started assembling items like sutures to water purification filters. I am far from paranoid or conspiracy minded. I am thoroughly surprised at my prior lack of preparedness for any number of situations that could occur though.
I am a single middle-aged male. I keep busy with the following: my children on weekends, full-time student(back trouble change of career), computers and internet, biking, and part-time residential painting.
There seems like so much to do to prepare for an emergancy, and I am wishing I would not have spent thousands on video game consoles and games this past year. :mad:
This looks like a very informative and fun site, and look forward to losing myself amongst the threads.

Welcome to the forum "Meek". I too had an awakening not to long ago. I always knew it should be done, but never got around to it.

At times, it seems overwhelming. "where do I start?" and "what do I do first (or next)?". Remember the old proverb - "How do you eat an elephant?" Answer - "one bite at a time".

Just this morning I read a line in a little book I'm just starting called "I can't believe it's Food Storage" that hit home. "As the Lord Himself declared, "And out of small things proceedeth that which is great". Regardless of a person's beliefs, we all know that great things come from small, seemingly inconsequential tasks.

Don't kick yourself for playing the video games. That can't be changed. Just committ to taking another bite of the elephant.

Welcome.

P.S. Don't get rid of those games. You are still entitled to have fun!

Hello from Mn

I feel your pain. I am working and going to school as well. I have always wanted to homesyead and prep but my ex was not into It. Now here I am a lot older scrambling to purchase property, learn all the skills, try to become self sufficiant and start prepping. Am I crazy to try to do it alone? I feel like I would be crazy to do nothing, so am just doing the best I can.
