Returning, not sure why I walked away for so long.

Post by Merovech » Tue Oct 13, 2015 10:29 am

Good morning ZS'rs.

Been gone a while, I thought it was worth a new introduction post. I was once quite active, but life, kids, several moves and all sorts of life chaos has gotten in the way.

I hope that ZS is still the friendly, open and practical place it used to be a few years ago. This place has taught me a lot, and I have always tried to give more than I have taken. I enjoy posting/reading how to posts, practical knowledge and threads of real educational value and the interaction that occurs in them. My favorite people here are Murph, Woods Walker and ZombieGranny, because reasons. They don't know me, but they are drafted into my Fantasy TEOTWAWKI team.

So I am Merovech, I am in Oklahoma these days. I have been all over though from the PRKalifornia, Alaska, Texas, Nevada and several points in between.

Im a family man above a gear head, Im a cheap SOB but enjoy quality things, buy once cry once.

When I started getting into small scale prep's my wife agreed to a budget of $50 a month, it was enough and helped me with the motivation to do a lot of research into the best value for the money and keeping things simple. She was always on board, in a small way, "Just in Case".

These days, she looks at ways to secure our neighborhood from outside threats, wants a minimum of a years worth of food in the house and that sort of thing. You could say she is wholly on board these days, we make our preps invisible and outwardly strive to maintain the greyman/family look to avoid this sort of thing: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Shelt ... ht_Zone%29

Ill be posting a new prep thread soon, as a father of four, my load will probably look a lot different than most folks.

Welcome back! I know the feeling of coming back after some time away. I only just started coming back onto the forums after not being on here since Jan-Feb of this year.

Oh man! My intro (re-intro) post could almost be a copy/paste job. I've been away about 4 years. Good to be back, already recognizing some old names.
