Hello to all from rural Cass County, Missouri.
We’re a hard working couple, enjoying life and the country air. I’m interested in networking with other people who are prepping either near or far to share ideas and to get to know better as time goes on.
We’ve no kids but lots of extended family that live far away except for our nephew who lives nearby and is also learning how to prep.
I believe the hubby and I have a lot to “bring to the table” if we eventually join in or at least network with likeminded people.
We are in our mid 50s, fit in both mind and body. We both retired honorably from the U.S. Army after 20 years of service. My spouse still brings home the bacon while I try to be a housewife. It’s hard because I’ve worked at an away- from- home job most of my life but I’m getting the hang of it and expending a lot of energy learning about country life.
We’ve always tried to be prepared for emergencies long before we knew there was a trendy name for it.
We both have retained our basic soldier skills. The hubby has extensive knowledge in mechanics and water purification. He was also an EMT. He grew up on a farm and has a lot of experience with livestock and basic gardening.
I grew up a city girl but my Mom, who grew up on farm during the Depression, taught me a great deal about life and instilled the importance being independent and always being ready for emergencies. My experience in the military, in addition to basic soldiering included all areas of logistics and small arms repair.
What I’m learning about now is the art of poultry management. Any chicken people out there?
Anyone who wants to network with us, let me know. I’m not paranoid but really like to get to know people before sharing a great deal of information.
Keep on preppin’!
