    Welcome!! Can't say I listen to bluegrass, but I like classical music. Both use violins.
    I have to say the fiddle has to be my favorite insturment to hear in bluegrass, any form really whether it is in classical, rock, or bluegrass. Just one of those sounds you can't beat too bad I have 10 left handed thumbs when it comes to playing music.

    Reporting in from the Lowcountry of South Carolina. I'm a 25 year old active duty USAF member & veteran(2 tours OEF, 3 Tours OIF), and I'm currently a field instructor for the Air Force out of Charleston AFB. I've 'visited' 41 countries and 6 continents for Uncle Sam and now I've been grounded for the next couple of years.
    Originally from central KY, right next to the Appalachia, so living far out isn't anything new. Lived on a tobacco farm until I joined the service and I've been heavily interested in survival/self-sufficiency, camping, backpacking, farm etc almost my whole life.
    I'm married to an expatriated Canadian dogsledder and we maintain a halfway homestead on our little plot here in SC. We raise ducks, chickens, and 5 dogs at the moment while trying to live the day to day.
    I'm heavily into fitness and nutrition, because what good are skills if you have not the body to endure and implement them. I've ran 1- 26.2m marathon, and 1-50m Ultra marathon, with another 26.2 coming up next weekend. I hike as much as possible and live by the principle of Bruce Lee to be "Always Training" Whether it be running up a flight of stairs or walking the full distance instead of driving, to adding more weight than needed while hiking. I spend most of my free time, exercising, reading up on everything from philosophy, medical practices, low intensity farming, politics, and survivalism, or tending to our garden. On average we raise 75% of the food we eat on our small plot in our backyard.
    I'm avid in learning from others and obtaining as many skills as I can, currently I'm reading up on HAM radio operation, and building construction.
    If you live in the lowcountry, or if you a good ol boy/girl from the bluegrass feel free to send me a message.

    On a more personal level I'm a big Bluegrass music fan, I also spend some time training our dogs in obedience/protection.
    I'm very glad I've found this group and I hope to expand my skills and hopefully share what I have learned.

    You are much more ready for TSHTF than am I. It takes time and diligence!

    Keep us in mind if the "string starts tightening" and we need to start forming groups.

    And thank you for your service,

    I appreciate the warm welcome and I will have to check out that festival Lazer. We are going to the Old Crow Medicine Show this weekend and are really looking forward to it.

    FWM, it seems there are quite a bit of people on the forums in the local area, we should get a group together and plan, talk, have a demo, go shooting who knows. We take our dogs to the dog park out on James Island I always kick myself in the ass for not buying a house there.

    Welcome! I can hook you up with a great "bluegrass" festival in the fall. I help a friend put it on every year. Not all bluegrass...but usually pretty good. Check out http://www.albinoskunk.com/

    Thank you very much for the job you've done, are doing, and will continue to do. We owe you a huge debt of gratitude.


    I play some fiddle and love bluegrass, newgrass, old grass, and old timey music. Played in a 100 year old log cabin on a self sustained farm a couple weeks ago with some old timers and new timers as well. Man it was cool! I'm still singing 'boil them cabbage down, boys'........
