My husband and I are in our mid-thirties. We have 2 small kids and have an interest in a wide range of topics. I enjoy backpacking and learning about native plants and their uses. I like to teach myself skills such as how to make sourdough bread or ferment veggies. We have been slowly chipping away at self reliance for years now. Our next step is to move out of the suburbs into the country so that we can continue to expand our skills. My husband knows how to do most things involving building or fixing just about anything.
