HUGHES COUNTY, LOOKING 4 MTGS IN AREA, NEW PREPPER

Hello,

My name is Sunnie. Lived in Hughes Co. most of my life. New to prepping and survival skills. Planning a trip to the OKC LDS cannery soon to see what thats all about. Im not a mormon, but I have heard some pretty great stuff about the canneries, so I'm pretty excited about it. If anyone would like to come along it would be a great opportunity to meet some folks. Working on getting our bug out bags prepped and ready to go as well as food storage started. Its a bit overwhelming, but I'm determined to start slow and build instead of just not doing nothing. It just feels so vital. I have tons of questions and can use all the support anyone is willing to offer :).

I have been an avid canner for a quite a few years, so thats one skill I have. I'm not real great at gardening, but looking to improve. I have been doing alot of research into beekeeping and hope to start my own hives soon. We have quite a few acres of land in my husbands family that I am looking forward to building on as soon as we are able. Since we live in a pretty rural community anyway that will be where we plan to retreat to if and when everything comes crashing down.

Also, I have been looking for prepping mtgs around the area, but I can't seem to find anything. If anyone has any info, I am super interested in getting to know some of the prepper's around me. When you first start you kinda feel all alone, but I know that's not the case.

Can't wait to hear from someone and wish you all the best in your efforts!

Welcome from northern California Sunnie. I would highly recommend checking out ReadyMom's post - Welcome! He's a Prepper. She's a Prepper. I'm a Prepper too! and the search function to get you started down the right path.

Lots of good info and folks on this site, so again welcome and hope you can find folks on your area to help you as well.

Thanks Oldrek for the welcome :) I read ReadyMoms post right after registering. It was extremely helpful and I wrote alot of what she shared in my prep "to do" list. Trying to get everything organized right now so I can be sure to have a good inventory of what I have and what I need as well as what we use. I'm thanking the Lord for spreadsheets. lol

Welcome from another Okie. The Oklahoma preppers are not very active outside of the forum. There seems to be some meeting in the city from time to time, but none out in rural Oklahoma.

Oh so true Sunnie.

:rofl: I have to use both paper lists and spreadsheets myself. A spreadsheet to keep track of my list and my list to keep track of my spreadsheet. :rofl:

Oh the joys of getting older. :D

Good luck in your preps,

Oldrek

Thanks for the welcome Yeti!! Well, thats a little disappointing :( I was really looking forward to some good networking. But, I suppose there is enough good information out there for me to get started anyway. Maybe Oklahoma will kick it in gear and get a little more chatty in the future. lol
