How many people have I met or associate with that are thinking alike? To be brutally honest with you it's really not that many.. outside of a few
close friends and pseudo family members, not very many people seem to get me..... in this whole idea of being prepared.
Most, well.. they label me as an eccentric 30 something guy... a little worn from the many miles off walking the beaten path and carrying an air of
mystery around me.
In all actuality, I could count those that I know and can confide with on these tangents (like these) on both hands, not even a dozen humans close by
can sometimes relate. But with that said, I can totally relate to what you are saying.. and with most on here in this page in time. I have always felt
that something was going to go down in my lifetime.. something big, and that I would need to get ready for it. It's not really a doomsday sort of
mindset like alot of things you see while frequenting the web, just a solid feeling and nothing more. That in itself is pure instinct my friend, and
it goes hand in hand with human betterment. You are on the right track, just stick to your guts... they don't lie.
At least that is my standpoint on the matter.
So what's wrong with being prepared?
I know there has been some unusual threads started here as of late... it seems like, but don't get discouraged by that, there is nothing wrong
with being vigilant and looking after your own well-being
regardless of the naysayers. The Scout Motto is: "Be Prepared" and that pretty much
sums it up in a nutshell.
There are many different facets of survival, self-reliance and self-sufficiency camps out there, from the extreme militants to the backwoods sorts of
hill dwellers/hermits/hikers/yokels like myself. The funny thing is, we all have the same goal in reality... yet none seem to communicate with one
another. I seem to be getting off track here, but from an observational standpoint, I would like to say this.. from the heart:
I have met more great people and learned things I had never thought possible, just by opening my mouth and speaking my mind, rather than keeping both
of them closed. I used to be pretty closed off on this idea... but the times they are 'a changin'.
So go with it, speak out (as long as it will not not cause you great harm) and go with the flow, and just remember... "YOU ARE NOT ALONE"
See you on the flipside....
