Hi all! I'm Katie - married to Jake with two house-dogs (although they're big enough to be small horses). Both Jake and I are only 23, but we've had a major emergent situation that stretched on for over a year and a half - it seems to have ground us. We've had ideas about preparedness and homesteading for a while, but we've only seriously been preparing for about a month so far. There are plans, but those plans have yet to be fully executed. I'm hoping to find like-minded people that would like to meet and work together (near Longview, TX) or to serve as guides. I need some giants to stand on if I'm going to see what I can see.
