Hello,

I am interested in living more of a self sustainable lifestyle.  I am looking for new friends and people that are interested or already living this way.  Please let me know if you’re interested in connecting.

  1. Hi PandemicPrepper,
    I’m up in WA state and no expert in prepping my any means. I’m a lot like you in the fact that I don’t know anybody who is into prepping. It’s not the kind of thing you can advertise on C.L. for. Considering the times and the events that have taken place over the past 4 years, “especially this year”, you would think that more people would be racing into being more prepared and finding like minded folks. Maybe they are but are just finding different ways to connect. This seems like a good user-friendly site, but not many people seem to know about it or use it.

    Finding a group that you can fit in with is key. In the mean time keep a level head, don’t panic, have fun learning about becoming more independent from our fragile supply system that could come crashing down any year. Do what you can and don’t become overwhelmed. Research what foods grow best and provide the best bang per the effort in your area and start growing something or as much as you can every year; (a few carrots as a potted plans and potatoes in a 5 gal bucket is better than nothing). Even if you don’t eat it all and give some away; there is no better training on how to grow & store food than by doing it. The main thing is to keep having fun with your adventures in life. Don’t let the negativity drag you down and when you do find a like minded group you will fit right in and be an asset.
    For the short term, buy as much caned, dried, store-able food as your can safely afford or have room to store. The more you can store up for emergencies the less drain on the fragile system you will be if and when our supply chain does come crashing down.
    Also; since you are in UT, you have a resource for good store-able and inexpensive food at a Mormon Church Cannery. They can and freeze dry food for long time storage and sell it to the public for a dirt cheap price compared to the advertised prepping foods. You don’t have to be a Mormon member either.
    I hope you find a like-minded group near you.
    Happy Trails
