We are a family of six (four teen/young adult children) living in the mountains a couple of hours north of Spokane. Looking to make a few connections to share info and possibly projects.
About us – we are conservative Christian family with conservative politics. We are not heavy conspiracy theorist types. We do not belong to a group (yet). We simply want to be more self sufficient and extremely well prepared for any troubled times that may lie ahead. We made the move from living in suburbs all over the USA to a rural location miles away from the nearest small town. Strong supporters of traditional, conservative interpretations of the US Constitution including the 1st, 2nd and 4th amendments.
Our home and land is constantly under revision with several current projects underway or completed, and many projects planned. We have clean water, great hunting, large gardens and we have started out on livestock (successfully) with raising chickens and turkey. Getting ready for goats (2016) and eventually cattle.
I am looking to connect with people who have working/hands on knowledge of the following:
- Gardening and food production
- Communications – Ham Radio for home, vehicle and compact portable units. CB radio and general comms.
- Vehicle maintenance – I like working on older trucks but its a learning process as I am not a mechanic. Heavy interest in older trucks due to resistance to EMP. Plus, they’re just plain fun.
- Emergency power generation
- Gunsmithing/builds/scenario based target practice
- Home security and defense
We do not bring people to our home until we know them well. Would prefer to establish communication via email first, then possibly meet at a public location like a restaurant. This is simply networking and exchanging knowledge, but we have also exchanged time on family projects with people we’ve gotten to know.
We are also willing to share our experiences of moving out of the suburbs to a rural area. We made a few mistakes and also have successes.
Let me know if you are interested in connecting. Thanks!
