We (our family) are into preparedness and have been for a few years. We have a small rural 1 acre homestead that we are developing to meet our preparedness plans. While I like to think we are well along on our journey we accept the fact that preparedness is a never ending path of growth and learning and preparing. I am an engineer, she's currently a homemaker, and the kids are well doing what young adults do... trying to figure out life. I really enjoy Bear's videos and thought this would be a good place to start developing some local ties and maybe meet our goal of getting to the point where we are part of a larger group or MAG in our locality.
