    Hello everyone. Been around for a few weeks now, but never stopped by to say hello.
    I live in a very small town in eastern ontario about 50 miles from Canada's capital. It was
    great finding this forum now when ever she asks me why my pockets are so full or why
    I would have a BoB I can point to the 14000+ members of this forum and tell here that
    I am not the only one who thinks that being prepared is a good idea.

    Hey,

    Yeah this spot is a good resource. I am in the same neck of the woods so I hope that you get a chance to enjoy this fine weather with some of your gear.

    I know the weather has not been very good so far this summer I think it must have rained at least 80% of the month of July. Here is hoping that August is better.

    I don't mean to be rude to a noob, since I have only recently arrived here myself.
    Maybe I'm just being too :censored: picky.
    But I have to question your statement that all 14,000+ members of EDCF are here because of a 'preparedness phobia'. :)

    There are dozens, if not hundreds of splinter groups represented and posting here, all with their own chosen phobias and obsessions.

    From what I've seen so far it is only a small percentage that are mainly concerned with 'being prepared' in different areas. I applaud the mental and financial effort these forward thinking individuals invest in their chosen corner of EDC, but they are still a minority and to represent the whole of EDCF as 'preparedness freaks' is just incorrect.

    Have fun

    P.S. It just occurred to me that EDC isn't that far from OCD. I bet I'm not the first to have THAT thought! ;D
