I have been waiting to do my introductory thread until I had something to say. Another new thread in Introductions sparked my thought process and so
here we are.
THINGS I KNOW:
1) I can survive in the wild with nothing but the shirt on my back.
Several years ago, a local prison decided to do an exercise on tracking an escapee. Names were tossed around and they ultimately asked me if I
would participate. The exercise was to last 2 days or until they caught the "escapee". We started at the gates of the prison and they gave me a 30
minute head start before they let the dogs loose. Long story short, 8 days later I walked into the Sheriffs dept here and asked if they were still
looking for me. That was a lot of fun and I learned a lot about myself. I gained 2 lbs during the 8 days.
2) If someone invades my home......I will win. Doesn't matter who they are or how many (to a point, I can't beat the Marines). I can shoot
straighter than most, I am calm under pressure and I can fight hand to hand if needed.
3) My gardening and canning/storing skills are better than most. Thanks to my great grandparents, grandparents and my parents for this.
THINGS I DON'T KNOW:
Most anything else. I don't know who killed Kennedy, but I am reasonably sure it wasn't Oswald. I don't know who is responsible for 9/11, but I
doubt it was Osama. And so on.
I do know that we are on a precipice and we could go either way and I am not sure which one I root for.
Any way, I am here and am looking forward to hopefully finding some answers to my questions. It looks like we are in for a wild ride!
