I'm a 64 yr. old woman who is doing what is needed to survive and thrive, alone. I have been prepping before it even had a name and am about as set as I can be. I am not into the 'practical, tactical' end of it. I have what I have and being alone have had to come up with different ways to protect and defend. I am very well versed in gardening and such. Read that as prolific, keep chickens right now, but may expand that again in a while. Have raised pigs and helped with goats in the past, so have that under my belt as well. I sew, clothing tents and canopies, leather...yup, got that down. To make this short, I 'do' it all by myself. I have had some unique experiences in my life which may make it a bit easier for me to deal with the harsh. Some medical training and experience. Lol, hey, I'm just me.
