Hello From Chicago

Post by Ulfr hinn Thralati » Sat Apr 27, 2013 6:41 pm

Hello all! Found the site about a month or so back looking for info on BoBs and finally decided to sign up today. A little about me, was in the navy active duty from 90-94 then then in the navy reserves untill 2011. Did a year tour with the army as an IA in 2007-8 as a prison guard. Disaster prep is my newest creative outlet. See you all on the forums!

Been to Chacago a number of times. Nice town but a bit dangerous. What part do you live in?

I'm in the far south suburbs. Takes about a 1/2 hour by express way to get downtown.

Welcome from the southside! Hope you can make the meeting today. It is way up north, tho. Check out the chapter 20 site for info and a map. We do rotate our meeting sites each month-the next one in May will be in Homewood.
