Hello Everyone,
My name is Jason, I live in Nashville, Tennessee. After reading this forum off and on for a few years, I decided to sign up after I saw ZS on the recent History Channel show about Zombies. What really made me join was the Nashville Chapter. I look forward to meeting other local members and becoming part of the community here.

A little bit about me, I am 33 years old, married and both my wife & I are very interested in preparedness and security, safety & survival. I run a couple of businesses out of my home, the main one being a bi-monthly magazine dedicated to living history & reenacting, the second being a survival/preparedness/tactical gear business. If you are familiar with the USN forum, I have a dealer forum there.

I also work for Dave Canterbury's new publication, Self Reliance Illustrated, I am the production manager. We just sent out 6th magazine to print, so we have a year under our belts (as opposed to 11 years with my other magazine). And if all of that wasn't enough, I also work full time as a security officer at a University in Nashville.

Like I said above, I have read this site off and on for a couple of years now. Mostly the gear reviews. I am a bit of a geardo. I don't know if I first found the site through Google (doing a search for backpack reviews) or if it was mentioned on another forum I used to read a few years back (Patrolling with Sean Kennedy).

Aside from Living History, my interests are camping, hunting, fishing, hiking, music and relaxing while smoking a cigar or sipping a martini :)

HI HI HI From Delaware County PA, Welcome to ZS! We're a little nuts.

There is SO much to learn here and wonderful people to help! Check out the Chapter and Meeting Room Links to meet up with other zombie hunters, in your area!

Tip, Look around and read some posts before diving in -get an understanding of the culture around here It just may help understand some of the inside jokes, what is accepted, whats not and help understand some of the random sillyness thats mixed in with the wealth of information that is ZS.

Enjoy the forums!
