You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone
You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone
Although my hygiene is at times questionable and have been known to act manic on occasion, I believe these faults are more than compensated by my proven skill to grow almost anything food (or medicinal herb) related. I also qualified as a rifle 'Expert' with an M-16 and can part the hair of an over-reaching gubmint bureaucrat at 500 meters.

I do not condone the growing of... tomatoes... so I'll live the mountain over and man a warning torch for incoming invaders from the next valley over.
I'm not good at anything. I just think Z-man is a pretty cool dude and I'd like to have some beers with him.
Wait, I'm a pretty good cook.

We should adopt our Cyburbia names upon entering The Compound, like the survivors in the 3rd Resident Evil.
Commander Wahday says:
We may be purchasing 20 acres in the Zuni mountains soon, so you all are welcome there. Its very defensible and has lots of deer (and bear, mountain lions, coyote and fox - but they're not as tasty)
Otherwise, I can cook, am fairly handy, a good shot, a skilled gardener and can dress a chicken!
The purpose of life is a life of purpose
I'll live in my van down by the river!

I'm in. I love camping and am pretty good at it. I have some marksmanship skills and survival from being in the military, too. I'll even wrestle some bears if needed.

I'm not particularly good at anything "survival-y" but in the event of attack from another group I would present a big target and may draw their fire. So can I come to the compound?

Every compound needs a secret password that will allow entry. I would assume that the password is.....
I'm appalled at what I'm reading here. Appalled, I tell you. Aren't we all planners? Mostly? Anyway, I've yet to see a plan for this valley compound. And there's some poor planning right there: you want to have a compound on the high ground, not down in the valley where they pick you off.
I think a charrette might be in order.

Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Are you sure you're not hurt ?
No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
Broke parts take a little longer, though.

I already have a compound deep in the Huron National Forest. Its a Knotty-Pine cabin with 'cathedral cielings' I'd be able to add on if need be.
