Hello there, I am a wife & mother of 2 great young boys. My husband and I are sort of "preppers" and are currently just working on sustainability for probably many of the same reasons the rest of you are. We have the added difficulty of that I am severely disabled but that also means that I am one of the most vulnerable populations when SHTF!! Anyways, I look forward to learning a lot here and applying some of it to my own daily life.

Current skills & interests include: self-sustainable food security (i.e. farming, gardening, butchering, canning, foraging, hunting and fishing!)
Fiber Arts & Textiles- one of my very few useful skills as a disabled person. I currently sew & crochet. Will be trying my hand at knitting and leather work in the future. I would even try spinning, weaving and embroidery if I had the time & space.
OFF GRID ELECTRICAL- this is a big one(!!) Solar power, wind power, hydroelectric, any other thing under the sun... me & Matt wanna learn it all! Nothing is off limits in the even of EMP Attacks!!
Aaand Ethical Stockpiling- I throw the term "ethical"in there bcuz while I want myself, my family, and even some of my neighbors to be safe & healthy in the event of an emergency, I do NOT believe it is okay to HOARD necessary resources like a jackass 🙄 (Citations: see the US toilet paper crisis of 2020- dont be that guy😂)

Thanks for having me!

Hi @NikkiSavage137 ! I'm happy you found us. I am disabled too, although recently have been enjoying being more functional and able.

I agree that people with disabilities have to prep more carefully than the general public. Its work!

Howdy and welcome!

What kind of livestock do you have, and how old are your boys?

I have 5 boys, ages 13 to 23.

I used to have a bunch of livestock, but over the years keep paring down and now only have chickens.
