    Long time lurker in Michigan

    After beginning my 4th or 5th re-read of the complete series, I thought it might be finally time to become an active member of the community.

    I loved reading the books on Kindle, and now have all of the books on Audible. It makes it much easier to enjoy the series while getting other things done.

    One thing the COVID crisis has done is make everyone more aware of the prepping community. You see how fast the WHO, CDC, FEMA, and other government agencies took advantage of the virus to push dependency on Uncle Sugar? It's time to take my preps a lot further. I can't count on keeping my job with everything shut down like this for long. My goal is to be as independent as possible in times like this.

    Ok, now I can take my tin-foil off and sincerely thank A. American for such a great series. It has provided hundreds of hours of education and entertainment.

    With all due respect...
    It might be tin-foil if you start speculating on the WHY around this... but the need to prepare is NOT tin-foil (source: 1 Timothy 5:8). And i wouldn't call it "prepping", I would call it prudently taking out an insurance policy against my responsibility to provide.

    On a different note, one of my favorite parts in this book series is when Sarge quotes Ezekiel 25:17.

    Revelation 16:1 might be more appropriate
    Oderint dum metuant

    "Stay with me; do not fear. For he who seeks my life seeks your life, but with me you shall be safe. 1 Samuel 22:23

    Oh yeah, dont get me wrong. Prepping is just prudent. The why is what is giving me a lot more urgency right now. Luckily, our current crisis has finally got my wife to buy in to the lifestyle. Im very thankful for that.

    Re: Ezekiel 25:17 I just heard that last night re-listening to book 3. Love that quote!
