Hello all, been lurking for about a year now.  Finally posting as a specific thread caught my attention.  Been reading ZPAW books for about 6 or 7 yrs. 

About myself:

Avid hunter, fisherman and outdoorsman.
Former Eagle Scout
Expert marksman
Hand loader for all my firearms (including my pistols, not so much for the shotguns)
Married with 3 kids
Tinkerer with my son.  We have built 2 faraday cages (look these up for an EMP event, you will thank me), an internal combustion engine, a shortwave radio and other assorted fun items.

Looking forward to it.

Yup.  My son is currently working towards his.  It is something that I would recommend all boys aspiring to become men work towards.  The outdoorsman skills alone make it worth it.

Having Faraday cages to protect your electronics is a good idea. However, its the rest of the country that is not prepared for an EMP event, so most likely all you will hear on your protected radios is static noise.

Read "One Second After". The author vividly captures the chaos of an EMP event.

BTW, welcome to the "chaos" on this site.

I love "One Second After" and it is the reason I started researching Farraday cages, etc.  The purpose of the cages is not for a radio as we refurbished an old vacuum tube on about a year ago.  Receives really well and I could hook up a mic to transmit easily enough.  The purpose for the Farraday cages are my power tools and my generator.  Life with those items in a PAW would be much easier.

Don't even bother watching the kill-cam unless you're a CIA code-breaker and proctologist cause it takes a genius to figure out my s**t. No matter what type of player you are, you don't stand a chance. I'll fade your punk ass then go upstairs and bang your sister
