Hey there,
Name is Jonas, been browsing this site for quite some time. Recently decided to become a registered user and am in the process of membership. Originally from Oregon, spent way to much time in AZ and TX and am now just outside of Seattle! Would call myself somewhat of a survival buff, it's always been more than an interest and hobby, more like a way of life. I'd love to post a Pic but.... Wait I lied, I hate pictures. I'm also a HUGE Benchmade Kinfe guy! When the ammo runs out I've got more knives than myself and everyone I know could ever use! I don't know to many people but enough lol!

Hi everyone! my name is Brad... I am a 36 yo guy from Arlington (Snohomish County) WA married with two young girls. I have just started prepping, but have a lot of great military training to get me started. I have a background in civilian search and rescue, marksmanship, emergency medicine, fishing, and primitive skills. I'm interested in meeting up with other people for camping trips, days at the range and learning more skills. I am a huge gamer and also play RPG's and x-box 360. Looking forward to meeting all of you guys and hooking up with some of the folks from the north end. Image

I'll post again later once I have a decent photo that's actually semi recent, darn camera's battery seems to always be flat when I reach for it (probably because I am not much of a picture taker LOL)

What's up? I'm, I guess the third Nick on this page... maybe I should have waited until page 9 got started?

Anyways, I'm originally from Minneapolis, MN but moved out to Fort Lewis in 2002, loved it, and decided to stay.

I spent five-ish years in the Infantry and then endured the SFQC to stay up in WA. I did another 3 years with 1st SFG(A) as a Weapons Sergeant before I got out last year, just shy of 10 years time in service.

Now I'm studying abroad, sort of; I'm a full time student while I work as a contractor overseas. I'm focused on school mainly because I'm tired of doing this kind of work and want to get back home and stay there. Unfortunately, my resume isn't good for much else besides what I do now. :(

I have a wife and three boys living in Auburn without me right now. When I'm home we love to go hiking and camping. Unfortunately, my wife's idea of roughing it is vastly different than mine, so I don't get much time to practice all the crap I've been learning from this place. I haven't been hunting but I really want to start. Sadly, I'm going to miss deer season this year :x , so maybe next year.

Aside from hiking, camping, and guns, I like working out a lot, but I stick to classics like jogging, lifting, and kicking around a heavy bag; no crossfit. I want to summit Rainier next summer/early fall and I'd love to do a Tough Mudder/Warrior Dash/Spartan Race, if I can ever get back to the states when they come around WA.

Almost forgot, the Avatar is my Siberian Husky, Claire. She's two and half years old now and she freaks out my neighbors but, she could not be a nicer, more awesome dog.

ETA: I found a slightly less beardy picture:

I'll add more recent photos after I get home, both of these were from Winter of 2010-11 in NE Afghanistan.

Playing an insurgent back on Fort Lewis for our guys to train. Note: Both the RPG and the AK are fake. God help the Sergeant that entrusts his soldiers with an RPG and AK-47 on home soil.

Hey,

My name's Obe. Pronounced like Obi in Obi-wan,(No relation). I'm a young soldier currently deployed to Afghanistan. I stumbled across ZS while searching zombie survival advice.(Get a lot of downtime sometimes.) I liked what I was reading about what the group does, and how they presented themselves so I figured I would become an active forum member until I got back and then I could actually be a contributing member to such an esteemed group. I look forward to chatting with everyone, and eventually meeting you at future events.

Catch you later. :)

Hometown: Meeker, CO.
Current Location: Tacoma, WA.
Age: 35
Occupation: As Assigned
Interests: Backpacking, Snowshoeing, Snowboarding, Waterboarding, Target Shooting, Hiking, Foraging, Fitness, Weight Lifting (and dropping), Taekwando, Snipe Hunting, Geocaching, Art, Astronomy, Gardening, Gaming, Bird Watching, Mountaineering, Kayaking, Rock Climbing, Diving, Native Flute Music, and Coping with A.D.H.D.

Bio: He turned thirty-five last Sunday and his hair has found some gray But he still ain't changed his life style He likes it better the old way So he grows a little garden in the back yard by the fence He's consuming what he's growing nowadays in self defense He get's out there in the twilight zone Sometimes when it just don't make no sense He gets off on country music Cause disco left him cold He's got young friends into new wave But he's just too friggin' old And he dreams at night of Woodstock and the day John Lennon died. How the music made him happy and the silence made him cry Yeah he thinks of John sometimes And he has to wonder why.

He's an old hippie and he don't know what to do Should he hang on to the old Should he grab on to the new He's an old hippie...his new life is just a bust He ain't trying to change nobody He's just trying real hard to adjust He was sure back in the sixties that everyone was hip Then they sent him off to Vietnam on his senior trip And they forced him to become a man while he was still a boy And behind each wave of tragedy he waited for the joy Now this world may change around him But he just can't change no more

Chorus

Well, he staysawaya lot now from the parties and the clubs And he's thinking while he's joggin''round Sure is glad hequitthehard drugs Cause him and his kind get more endangered everyday And pretty soon the species will just up and fade away Like the smoke from that torpedo...just up and fade away
