Hello everyone. I'm new user from northeast side suburb of Columbus. I work as a sheet metal welder/fabricator in south Columbus. Hope to connect with others here.  Are there any Ham operators out here? Looking to learn and grow my prepping skills.

My family and I are interested in buying land in CO to gradually begin the process toward a more sustainable and resilient lifestyle.  Does anyone have any input on the best places to look for land in like-minded communities?

Viability of CSA models in bad times

My wife and I are embarking on a small farming adventure.  We have several acres of fruit trees and garden space we are working on building into a small organic, permaculture based, market farm.  We are both working full time jobs that pay well and are slowly buying equipment and installing fencing and irrigation and starting a small food forest.

Hi Kathy! Michigan is quiet! It's you and me!

Any specific discussions you'd like to see open up for Michiganders? Excited to see who will find/join us! What are your preparedness priorities? Our family has focused on the basics -- alternate location with shelter, food, sustainable future food, off-grid living and protection. It's always a pull as to where available resources should go next, right? I'm interested in hearing if anyone has dealt with their retirement savings yet -- as in self-directed precious metals so you can actually get them if the SHTF, etc.
