Sure, I used it to research things like hiking trails and recipes, but most of the time my computer is a music machine for my home and shop.
I found ATS searching for home made water filters and stumbled into the survival forum. I've been hooked ever since. When I looked around the site, I
couldn't believe how many topics were being discussed. Topics that I want to know about, and topics that I do know something about.
Now I check ATS at least a couple times a day to see the breaking news. And if I have an hour to kill, I come to this site and never fail to find
something interesting and educational.
The wife and I are trail geeks and wilderness survival is one of our hobbies. We lived off the utility grid for 3 years in remote AZ. I put together
my own solar power system and solar water heater. I also saw my neighbors come up with ingenious ways to produce electricity.
We live and remained in the heart of New Orleans during and after Katrina so we have first hand experience with marshal law, urban survival, and
natural disasters. So far we have never evacuated for a storm. (Our perspective on this is not typical)
And we love music. I wish ATS had a radio function that played music as its being posted.
I hope I can contribute to these topics.
As far as most of the other topics, my opinion is constantly evolving thanks to all of you.
