I am a retired Navy vet that has been prepping 7 years. I currently live in central Mississippi, moved here from Dallas, in an attempt to escape the big city in an economic crash. I have determined that this location is unacceptable in a magnetic pole realignment scenario. Need to be over 900′ above sea level. The Ozarks seem to fit the requirements for both of these scenarios.
I am a young 65 year old that is still in good shape and I drive a ’97 F250HD that is in good shape as well. Plan on purchasing a travel trailer prior to this move for my “home”. I own over a years worth of freeze dried food, have a Berkey water filter, have a library of over 100 books and magazines related to off-grid living and just too many items for self sufficient living to list.
I am spiritual in that I believe in God but not attending a church. I attempt to live a Christian life but fail all too often. Willing to work with building/maintaining a garden, any construction projects or any other projects that need to be planned/worked.
I have worked in Naval aviation as a hydraulic tech, an Air Traffic Controller and finally in the field of computer operations and maintenance. Since my retirement I have spent 15 years driving 18 wheelers nation wide. I maintain my own vehicles, have rebuilt 2 automotive engines, have an adequate amount of mechanic tools and experience to get me through tough times. Am working on several ideas to create off-grid DC power, 24/7/356, without relying on wind or solar to charge a large bank of batteries.
