    Well hello fellow preppers…. I’m Jeff, pretty much a newbie at prepping, I only have a g.o.o.d. bag or bug out bag already prepped.
    I believe having more people for a group would be the best way of surviving, and I don’t only want to survive, I want to thrive. :gunsmile:

    Hi revesg! A great place to start is in the “How to Start Prepping (The Basics)” forum at viewforum.php?f=616 .. then just start snooping through various forums that look interesting to you. When I first joined I spent about a week just reading and reading and reading .. then I started posting on discussions that were interesting to me – and now they can’t shut me up! ๐Ÿ˜†

    Hello. New to the site, new to prepping. Not sure if I am a prepper or not, but I do feel that it is time for us to take notice and start helping ourselves. I live on 10 acres in south central Oklahoma and feel that I want to start having the land work for me and not be so dependent on Wal Mart…LOL. I have increased the size of my garden this year, going to learn how to save seeds and canning. My wife is on board with this. I have a oak tree about every 3 foot, so I have a source for heat and barter. I have a creek that runs 8 months out of the year and I am buying items right now to dig my own well…so I think that I am heading in the right direction. I love all the posts and will be checking in as much as I can.

    Hello everyone and thanks for the welcome. My husband and I are new to prepping, but not completely inexperienced. I’ve always been thrifty and had something put aside for a rainy day…or week…or month! I’ve known some very hard times and was single for a long time so I learned a lot just through life experience. My husband is retired military and an excellent marksman which comes in very handy in a true survival situation.

    I’ve always done canning, freezing, a bit of dehydrating and as much gardening as my shaded city lot will allow.

    I’d like to learn as much as I can about prepping on a tight budget (we are trying to pay off credit cards and become debt free) and more about food preservation and storage. We have a small basement. I’d like to find ways that I can make my own food rotation bins, boxes, units…etc. since we just don’t have the money for the retail units.

    I’m so happy to have found this group and am looking forward to a very educational and fun exchange of ideas.

    Hi! We have just started to prep for any type of global disaster. I would love to know the best way to acquire food for long term storage. Is it cost effective to buy prepackaged meals or do it yourself. ie, can, dehydrate, freeze dry. Would love some advise.

    thanks, kk
