Hi my name is Ben (same as my screen name I know) and I am 29. My wife (25yrs old) and I have two beautiful boys that are two and almost one. I know it is corny and everybody says it but my life changed when I had my first child. You just never really think about their future until you hold them in your arms and see the trust in their eyes. Absolute trust and love. I have been researching for some time now and I am convinced that my children’s lives are going to be miserable if I do not do something….but not just anything. I think I am preaching to the choir here when I say that the few people I have confided in think I am all “gloom and doom,” but that just is not true. I think preppers are some of the most upbeat people out there because we have done the homework and do NOT shy away from the truth. We don’t hide our heads in the sand and say, “oh it’s just too much to bear.” We plan, organize, train and stay up late (usually the only time I get) and research a new way of life not because we want to but because not doing so will have terrible consequences. I do not do this because I am gleefully hoping for the end of society as some seem to but because if I do not my family will be completely unprepared for what is coming.
I am searching for couples and individuals who are serious about prep. Having a nice 10 acre place in east texas is great but what happens when 28 million people exit Houston and migrate north(the roads are wide all the way here)? What of Dallas? I am currently trying to develop a multiple scenario plan with successive backups. In my research I have found there are just too many variables in the system to know what is the best plan…so having a series of backup plans that build upon one another seems like the only way to go. It does no good to work for years just to watch it looted and burned. I would like to meet with people who have military, logistics, veterinary, and agricultural skills in order to put a comprehensive plan together. I am not against paying for quality information.
I would also like to start a group that will hopefully incorporate these skills along with others. I am a Baptist and know why, and I am looking for good tithe paying Christians(see Malachi 3:8). I want people who are willing to work and train in order to be able to transition their families to what is coming. That means money and sweat and time. I want to build a community of people who are responsible. Don’t get me wrong I am all about charity but the best people are not charity. They need help and then in turn help you when you need it. Not just looking for young couples like us but definitely need plenty of them.
