  2. Hi and thank you. I’ve tried to respond to your reply a couple of times but my post wouldn’t go through. Hopefully this time works!

  3. Hi Chan,
    Sorry I missed your message. It had been a while since anyone had replied to my post. I do have some preps. Always looking to learn more. Do you belong to any groups?

  4. fxmom, why are you interested in prepping? in what areas are you looking to learn more?

      Already Gone,
      I think it probably started years ago when I was a kid. I lived out east and back in the mid 70’s we had a really bad snow storm – long story short we were without power for over a week. My dad was away, so it was just my mom and us kids. If it hadn’t been for our neighbors who were into hunting, gardening, had a wood burning stove, etc things could have been really bad. You don’t forget stuff like that. You never know what could happen, and maybe something bad won’t, but I don’t want to have to completely depend on someone else to survive. It’s good to know how to take care of yourself or have something to contribute to a group if a long term situation would happen.
      I am pretty good with gardening, food storage – canning, freezing, dehydrating, etc. I think I’m healthy and fit enough to handle basic survival. I know basic first aid. I’m very organized. I sew, crochet, and have experience with homeschooling. I would really like to learn more in terms of hunting, foraging, alternate power systems, etc. I have read a lot, but that’s not the same as hands on learning – for example I wouldn’t trust to just go foraging for mushrooms after reading about it, lol. It would be great to get together with a group of like minded people and help each other to add to our skills/knowledge.
      So that’s me in a nutshell. How about you?
