I'm a middle aged bald guy from West Virginia. I have always thought it would be good to be able to go at least a month without electric/water/gas/transportation just in the unlikely event something happens.

I find reading the forum very interesting and informative and is a relief to see others think its a good idea also. Some people make fun of the Mormons with there 1 year of food supply, but I got a feeling if something happens, they won't be laughing. :)

So far I have nothing in the way of emergency supplies/food. But everyone's got to start somewhere.
