If you have made the decision to survive you are a Survivalist. It is not a bad thing. If you believe the media we all are a bunch of nuts who run around shooting things. that is far from the truth. You will find a lot of very good people on this site. Look for the good people and you will find them. Find people who are willing to help you through the next steps you take. Make a plan and dont worry because it will change. You will change as well. Good to have you in our community.
Thanks for the welcome everyone. I don't consider myself a survivalist yet because, well, I probably wouldn't survive long if SHTF tomorrow. Lived in the city my whole life, and have no skills or preparations. I did get my PAL (canadian gun licence) awhile ago, but that's it. Talk of economic collapse, and here in Canada some politician always mentions banning guns altogether whenever anything happens, makes me think it's time to do some basic preparations. Certainly don't think anyone's crazy for doing so.
