Hello there from the North

Post by ZomCon Sargeant » Fri Nov 25, 2011 11:27 pm

Hello there Zombie Squad members

My name is Vic and I am a Sargeant 1st Class in the ZomCon Security Force here to learn and hopefully contribute a little to this community.

I have been a fan of the Zombie genre for as far back as I can remember. Have read WWZ and the Zombie Survival Manual several times. My favorite Zombie flim is Dawn of the Dead (1978). I have been practicing survivalism since I was a child. Also I am an avid firearms enthusiast.

My most favorite hobby is costuming. Mostly Steampunk and Star Wars but also G.I. Joe, The Warriors, and Horror.

After checking out this forum I knew I had to join up. So here I am.

Greetings from a fellow Minnesotan. Though my house is in Pigs Eye's evil twin, I'm on a bit of a hiatus in Central America. You have any snow up there yet? Welcome aboard!
