I have to wonder what makes people tick. Clearly you see something is wrong with our current state of affairs or you wouldn’t be prepping. Prepping, like everything else has a learning curve. You post that you are new, looking for advise, a group, or both. What holds you back from actually connecting? You ring the bell, the door is opened and you don’t respond. Is this a whim or passing thought? Or are you just testing the waters?
i hear you, I have been looking for other of like mind in my area or others that want to escape the big city. I offer almost everything as a starting point for them and they just fade away.
Lots of inquires if I have a fully established off grid independant group that they can join with their few skills and fewer goods.
