Default Hello from NJ

I have been checking out your forum for a few weeks and see a lot of good information and sincere members so here I am. I am a single grandfather raising my 16 yo granddaughter. I have always had the preparedness mindset and look forward to reading your posts and contributing what I can...

Being from the Peoples Democratic Republic of NJ myself, I can tell you that it's a great place to be from. Welcome to the forum.

We got outta dodge 30 years ago. We were both from the northern PDRNJ.

Thanks Brian...

South NJ is still pretty much farm land and wood lots. I would have liked to escape years ago but life and a decent job got in the way. You are right about the PDR. I always lean to the right myself...

Yeah, Southern NJ is nice.

We both had good jobs, but on a whim one vacation, 5 minutes down I-95 from our land we decided to find ourselves in Maine for good in a month. Sure folks thought we were nuts to leave the comfortable and known to go into the unknown, but we did it, left a lot behind, but in retrospect we gained so much more than we lost. And we both got good jobs up here. Good enough to retire young. YHVH provides.

Thanks Mo... actually I live about 15 miles west of ACY as the crow flys. That's a great little airport that I much prefer over PHL.

Brian... you are right. Sometimes you just have to take a leap of faith. Glad things worked out for you.

Thank you Native87. Yes, this seems to be a great forum of very like minded people and I enjoy being here.

I rode my motorcycle down along the Blue Ridge Parkway a few years back. You live in an absolutely beautiful part of our country!

Hello firegirl... thanks for the welcome! Yea it was pretty warm up here last week and we had the AC on as well.

You are right about "Thank goodness for grid power..." since I work for the regional power company maintaining and operating the generators that feed the grid... it's my bread and butter so to speak!
