Single Mom prepper in Washington

Postby meighla » Mon Apr 10, 2017 8:43 pm

Hi All,
I'm a single mom who's been prepping for the past 3-4 years. I have a bit of a headstart, in that I was raised on a very small farm and didn't eat anything from a grocery store for most of my childhood. I learned how to can and store food, we used a wood burning fireplace for heat, and had a well.

Fast forward to now - I live in a urban setting, but take being prepared for the next disaster pretty seriously. I have a plan for 3-4 days, 1 week, 2 week, and 1 month disasters. The next big goal for me is to get my own place (I rent now), so that I can put more cost-effective, permanent preps in place. Obviously, security is an issue, but at least I have put thought into it. I need to make more preps in this area though.

My kiddo will likely be with me for life, as she's on the Autism spectrum with a healthy dose of Anxiety thrown in. She's self-sufficient for a couple of weeks at a time, but really has no desire at this point to go anywhere else.

Other than that, I am a video game producer - talk about a job that will dry up - and love camping, hiking, and gardening. Found this site because I love Steven Konkoly & Bobby Akert's works.

Welcome to APN from north of Seattle! You ARE ahead of the curve! It does take time and money to prep for the "stuff" you want to store up, but knowledge is mostly free and ,sometimes, more important than much of the stuff. This is a great resource to learn and share and even have a laugh now and then.
