I'm new here...

Good afternoon all, I have been lurking on your site for over a year and have finally pulled the trigger and joined your group. I would like to let you know that I have a lot of respect for each you and the knowledge that some of your posts impart.

I may have had some reservations about joining had I known of the terrible misfortune that tends to befall each member who has joined this site... I too, was the recent victim of a tragic boating mishap where I not only lost the few old coins that I had found under the cushions of my old sofa, but also my single shot shotgun passed along to me to me by my father, as well as the last jars of my favorite preserves. I was lucky to escape with my life...

Hopefully I can contribute to this thread in a positive manner.

Boudreaux

Welcome, Boudreaux!

Many of us have experienced tragic losses of our PMs due to boating accidents, icefishing, etc. I myself always have thought it would be better to take my PMs with me when I go out, believing them to be safer with me than sitting around some dark hole at home. Some say that PMs and water do not mix well together.

Well, ancona, I'm just a country boy from Texas so I always have some Miller Genuine Draft on hand to go with my spicy pork rinds and I share with my friends... Thank you both for the prompt welcome...

Welcome boudreaux. From experience we all commiserate with your loss. However, since Goldman, JPM and the likes are keeping the price of PMs low for the moment, it looks like for all of us that:

Hey Boudreaux, welcome to the forum (as a member, no longer a lurker).

Glad you decided to register and say hi. Forums are great communication mediums, but you get out of them what you put into them. Ask questions and post thoughts. You never know what surprising horizons it will lead to.

Welcome, fellow Texan!
Just curious, why did you lurk so long before joining?

Ah, that brings back memories. I don't think I have had pork rinds since I last lived in Texas.

Welcome to the boards!

Good evening Mike, I lurked simply to try and gather as much information as I could before purchasing any PMs. I became serious a little over a year ago and have since become a "collector" of many things. I read several blogs, including Zerohedge, and watched as the economy begin to teeter more and more. I have several close friends who are of a like-mindset as I am and we speak frequently of what we would do if "what if" scenarios were to happen today. I have no children but pity those who do for what lays ahead for them. Thirty years ago if the things that are common subjects of these blogs today were to be the heard in casual conversation we would have been committed and loaded up on massive amounts of psychotropic drugs until we became '"normal" and ready to return to society again. I have come to realize that the government is not here to help...
