I am a homesteader. Ok, this doesn't mean that I am using the old homesteading laws to get land (hey, they removed that bill back in the '70s). What this does mean is that I (and my family) grow our food and raise food animals. We can and preserve our food in the fall for the winter, etc. We are very into personal responsibility and self-sufficiency. I was raised and have always been a big proponent for standing on my own two feet. I don't like having to rely on anyone else for anything that I need.
When it comes to prepping, we are not buying gas masks and gieger counters. But we are prepared with enough food to last us for a while. What happens if we got hit by an ice storm that came through not too long ago? We can survive.
To me, prepping is about being ready for anything and everything. As the Boy Scout motto says, "Be Prepared".
I am here to help teach others how to be prepared. Come what may. I always appreciate any and all feedback, so please feel free to leave comments or even send me an email. If you do send me an email, make sure you put the name of the blog in the subject line so I know it is not junk mail.
