CALLING ALL NEW PEOPLE!!! (PART TWO)
Posted 16 February 2012 - 11:36 PM
I am a newbie from Nebraska. I am wanting to learn a bit more about prepping. I am basically starting from the point of wanting to be prepared for job loss or natural disater. I love the saying, "hope for the best, plan for the worst". I have 4 kids ages 10 and under, plus hubby. I can never have too much food, water, or toiletries in this house!

WELCOME, WELCOME, WELCOME
There is so much to learn here. If you have any questions just jump right in and ask away. Someone usually has an answer or can point you in the right direction.
You can't always get what you want, babe
But if you try sometimes, you just might find
You get what you need.

Where words and actions disagree, the heart is revealed.

About me: I am quite elderly (58) ha- and I was prepping when it was not called prepping... I believe I first started prepping in the early to mid 80's when the scare was anthrax and plague (black death)... I canned with my mom in my younger years but in raising my family and running a business I got away from it. In '93 I moved to the Ozark Mtns to get out of the city (Phoenix to be exact). It was hard to leave family and friends behind, but I was always a country girl at heart and it was time to make the move from 2 1/2 acres to 600 acres. We ran cattle til health made us stop. I have loved horses all my life, and brought 8 with me when I moved out here. I still have 7 horses, but only two are left now from the original 8. I love gardening, photography, critters, my grandkids, and Jesus. That's my story and I'm sticking to it... well, most it anyway... lol...
I am concerned with the way things are headed in this country, and am making preparations to take care of family and help those I am able to help when things get really bad. I guess I am most concerned with the economy. I know there are many things (emp's, bad weather, natural disasters like quakes, etc...) that can happen, but I see inflation or hyperinflation as causing us problems real soon. I live on a fixed income and hate to go the grocery store as I know that prices will have increased in the last week. It is outrageous. If I did not garden, can, and stock up what I am able, it woud be grim in my household.
I am trying to learn more about dehydrating, canning, preserving dry foods for long shelf life,etc.... I look for any ideas on saving and prepping...I am trying to prepare to live in a time when things are simple again. Where it is not necessary to rely on the store for products, and someday I hope to have some kind of solar system in place. I look forward to sharing with and learning from all y'all. Starr

I'd like to learn more about box gardening, dehydrating food--especially fruit--and general self-defense. Another concern I have is that I am physically disabled. If there are others here who have physical challenges, I'd love to hear from you. )
