Just wanted to greet and join the WV group. I bought my great grandfather's farm in Hacker Valley several years ago and have been prepping it. Don't know may folks in that area. It would be a treat to meet some like minded folks in WV.
Hello everyone. I believe the reason its difficult to meet similar folks is because theres a lot of people affraid or hesitant to identify themselves as preppers. I do think a great many Okies are preppers but either cant or wont admit to it. Instead they have "storm supplies" or are "ready for the next weather challenge" but very few will take that next leap to possible SHTF scenarios. Just my 2 cents.
I'm working on expanding my garden and livestock areas. Just got a few baby cows and more chickens. With work and home life, I feel like the mad hatter most of the time "I'm late, I'm late..." Hopefully I'll get to start on some alternative energy projects later this year too.
Unfortunately, i live within the city limits so i can't have chickens and such ( oh how i miss those fresh morning eggs!). So we are concentrating on getting food built up, boys, and teaching the girls basic skills. We kinda got a late start on prepping but catching up quickly. We have always been ones to go camping ( primitive) and live life simply so many skills are already inbred.
Awesome!! I'm glad to see everyone. And yes, it IS hard to find others. I'm really glad no one gave up on this group! So what is everyone's latest project? Mine is getting more chickens and such for eggs and food, which means we are building bigger pens. I'm also watching out for barrels to catch and store rain water.
