Hello Members of ATS. I have been checking your site out for sometime now and I have determined this to be a safe place for me to share my thoughts
and opinions with some like minded folks.
I want to see if anyone else has gotten a strange urge to build an underground compound, complete with MRE's, weapons, independent power supplies,
entertainment systems, radio communications, Bank vault doors, light armor vehicles, cameras and basic survival necessities.
Yeah, I know it sounds like a nerds paradise, huh? And while I could easily fall into that category, let me offer this as a cop out.
My whole life I have been taught to trust my instincts. And when I joined the Military in 2000, that was encouraged even more. I finished my term in
04 and have discovered that those skills may have new uses.
Now lately I have been watching the news, internet threads, history channel, newspapers, magazines, you name it. There's promises of hope, change
and all the warm and fuzzies that could make even the most optimistic of us question our fates.
Like someone else posted in other threads, The Sh@! is going to hit the fan!! I don't know about you guys, but like the politicians, I do not want to
get caught with my pants down.
Couple that with the promise of total world chaos in the year 2012 as per the Mayan calendar and the fact that our next election is going to be a
couple months before the "big date"
It could be nothing, but it could be SOMETHING!! Is anyone else preparing for a possible (Insert catastrophe here) Nuclear war, End of Times,
Alien attack, terrorist cell, bad weather, violent government takeover, All of the above??? Am I wrong for informing friends and family an awareness?
Not too many seem to want to take this matter seriously.
