I repeat what North Idaho Patriot sez:Welcome!! to all of the new folks.

I do not usually welcome each and every new member, like some of the mods do, I reckon that i am not as chatty as some..... :lol:

I know that each one of you will find your own niche here. We are all at different levels of preparedness and we can all learn from one anther. Not one person knows everything, but we all know something, so......do not be shy about sharing your experiences, strengths and weaknesses.

Encourage others to come and visit our forum (and join), it just blows me away how rapidly we are growing!!

Again, WELCOME!!

What's really great about this site, is all levels of preparations are welcome! It doesn't matter if you're hunkered down and ready to roll or just starting out and don't know if you should buy an extra can of beans. Everyone is welcome and everyone helps. We're here because we see what's happening. No one is is slighted because they don't know this or that. Thanks to all of you for your warm welcome!

Uvajed - we are very lucky to have found you - and we sooo appreciate your contribution! but you are dead right when you say that we accept all levels of preps and preppers. even the most experienced prepper on this site started off facing the same problems as the person who only decided to start prepping yesterday. we have a broad range of skills and levels of prepping here...and we welcome everyone and we don't care what your level of prepping is - we believe that everyone has something to offer.

i was just thinking about this the other day. i was thinking that about 5 months ago i was worried about trying "to can" food for the first time and i remember what took the fear away. it was my friend SciFiChick letting me know that all that she had ever canned before was tomatoes (which still made me fearful because i hadn't even done that before). then her and i made a pact to become canning buddies, we did an online course together (at our own pace) and by autumn the two of us were canning fools. and she has since become a dehydrating fool and man you should see that woman with a food saver.

but all of this to say....its so awesome to be able to meet up with people who are at your same experience level and prep with a friend. i hope this made sense. i think i may have gone off on a tangent!

Stan - are you freakin serious? about the people that have viewed your post? and authoring a book? do you have any copies left lying around?

and did any of us mention how glad we are to have you? i am speaking proudly for the entire APN/CPN when i say : dude - we are sooo glad to have you!

(have you met SciFiChick? she would kill a family member to get her hands on your book...no - i'm dead serious!)

About the canning tomatoes thing...... My daughter and I found a really cool dented can place, and we can buy 24 (a case) cans of veggies for $4. I even have sauerkraut, kidney and garbanzo beans..... (no tomatoes) You should see my pantry (root cellar, more specifically, tornado shelter)! But, our worry has been the botulism thing associated with canning tomatoes. Fact or fiction? And as a sidebar, do you know about canning mushrooms? My hubby is a mushroom fiend!

all i have ever heard is that you shouldn't eat food from dented cans but i really don't know if that is true or not! i would love to see your tornado shelter - it sounds like it rocks! as for canning mushrooms - i need your recipe - i am a mushroom fiend too!

Hello from Iowa. I have been a watcher for many years and had a dream that was unshared about becoming self sufficient on my own land so it has not happened yet. I am more concerned than ever that we are on the verge of needing as much survival information as we can accumulate. A forum like this is very helpful for everyone. A great idea that is "on time". - Grandma

Thank you! My family and I are just getting started and would welcome any suggestions. It can be a little overwhelming.
Thank you for having a website for people to go to. I know how much work keeping a website going takes.
