My husband and I are Texas born and bred. But, life throws you curves and we are now moving to the Ozarks. We have been preparing for SHTF for about 8 years. That does not equate to prepared. It just means we have been working toward being prepared. Hopefully this is our last big step. We have been learning skills and acquiring preps along the way. I love canning and food preservation and he is learning solar and ham radio right now. So, hopefully others will jump in and introduce themselves too!!!!
