The prepping thing kind of catches you unawares, so be warned. It starts innocently enough with a couple of simple things you think it might be prudent to stock up on (my wife's asthma meds, in my case) and next thing you know, the garage is full of buckets of food, boxes of candles and enough medical supplies to keep a hospital running Ermm

It's nice to have someone join who gets this stuff, even if we don't all agree. Discussions aren't particularly useful if they're too one-sided, and I like to think that's what makes AFT stand out. Many sites - and I'm not necessarily singling out flu/prepping sites when I say this - don't tolerate dissent or discussion, especially if it's the new guy against the seasoned poster. I know, because I've experienced it elsewhere and it left enough of a bad taste that I rarely go back. And titles don't necessarily mean as much here as they do elsewhere either. For the most part, members of the moderator group on AFT just try to keep discord/abuse to a minimum, and stay on top of any spam that pops up.

Hopefully you stick around - your posts are certainly insightful and very well-informed, and that can only be an asset to a site like this. And don't forget to buy some extra cough medicine next time you're at the store...Wink
