New member from IL soon to be TN

Postby MsMossRose » Tue Jun 20, 2017 1:45 pm

Hello all!

30 y.o. from West Central IL, but will be relocating to the Eastern TN area within 6 months. My mom taught me as a kid to always have a 3 month supply of anything I might need. When my job of many years up and closed in Sept 2013 I was without work for 6 months. Ended up losing my house and car. I learned very quickly that what I thought was a three months supply was really half that and severely lacking in some areas all together. I learned a lot about what I ACTUALLY needed and how much I could really do without. It was a big eye opener and after last years election, prepping is my #1 priority. That and getting out of Illinois.
Besides working to meet my 6 months storage goals, I have been working on becoming proficient in cooking, canning/storage, and foraging food. I am a nurse and am continually learning about emergency medical care and medicinal plant use and such for a SHTF/WROL situations. I have even started taking gun lessons at my local shooting range. I was pretty nervous at first but it was love at first shot! I have also been learning about other aspects of prepping from forums and YouTube, but have not been able to do much hands on at this time. After moving, will be looking to buy land in Tennessee near other like minded people.

Looking forward to learning all I can!

Nice to have you aboard! Enjoy the gun lessons. You will probably get much more of an opportunity for that in TN as from what I know they are much more gun friendly than IL. I go to TN from time to time, often in the Nashville area. Bought a rifle in TN at the Bass Pro in Nashville. Had to get a souvenir.

Thank you for the warm welcomes! Yes! Illinois is horrible when it comes to guns. This was one of many reasons I'm moving. :)
