Hey, Folks, I've been lurking here for a while and taking in a lot. I'm hoping to eventually put something back into your board if I have anything to offer. Currently I am most interested in the medical aspect of long term survival preparations. I guess I started considering myself a "survivalist" around 1976 in my late teens. I'm almost 50 now so I've been bumbling through such things for quite a while but I look forward to learning more from those wiser than myself. I'm in the Northeast Florida area near the coast. Seen my share of hurricanes, hurricane threats and tropical storms.
