Sorry, was so excited there I forgot to put in some info about me.

I'm a 40yo white guy. I've been working in software technical support for the last 15 years or so, 11 at a company in downtown Portland. (I really am getting to hate working downtown). I recently got into amateur radio (Ham) as an extension of other prepper activities I've been slowly getting into over the last 5 years or so. I'm not a foil hatter, I just want to prepare for the zombie appocolypse. ;o)

Right now I live in Hillsboro with my wife, adult son (and his girlfriend), and adult daughter and her two daughters. Once we get the dang kids to move out (or we move out from under them) our plan is within a few years to move to a more rural location (at least an hour from Portland) on a few acres and start doing some homesteading. If we can just get the dang kids to move out.... sheesh.

I was born in Forest Grove and lived in this area most of my life except for a short stint in Alaska and my Air Force career in Idaho (Mtn Home is the most god forsaken place I've been).

I'm one of those Jack of all Trades kind of guys. I get an interest in a subject and study the heck out of it until I have a basic understanding and a little experience then I move on to the next thing (can you say dilettante?). Some of the skills I've learned the basics on the last few years:

Sailing
electronics (built my own solar battery charge controller from components)
Solar
Wind (haven't had a chance to build my first wind turbine yet)
Ham radio (active in ARES hence the handle, I do EMergency COMMunications)
CNC (need some shop space so I can try building my own CNC router or mill)
Mead-making (YUMMM!!!)
Biodiesel (again, need some shop space to start producing)
Canning
Gardening (permaculture)
Aquaponics (using fish in a hydroponics system)

There's a whole slew more I want to learn but have been restraining myself until we move rural and can actually start practicing some of these skills. The wife is actually looking forward to just buying a piece of land with enough improvements for an RV pad with utilities and a pole barn/shop. She's fully on board with all the prepping to start homesteading. She's tired of the city life also and wants to get back to her country roots.

Greetings all.
Brian

I grew up right next to the swimming pool by Pacific U. I loved growing up out there.

Spent my term in Mtn Home (what an arm pit). Got out about 20 years ago.
