At least we hope to be back getting to know one another, sharing information, and getting our preps on.
Ohio Preppers Network (OPN) is part of the American Preppers Network. OPN was born late January 2009. Unfortunately, it’s had a few growing pains and lost its moderator a few weeks ago. I’ve volunteered to take on this role temporarily, until a permanent moderator can be found.* Meanwhile, I invite everyone-- anyone!-- who’s still hanging around from the old days to contact me (just as soon as I figure out how to make that work!) if you have posts or other items of interest you’d like to contribute, and to invite your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers to stop in at OPN.
If you’re new to prepping sites, Farmer Geek had a great post back in February defining “prepper”:
Some people may be put off by the term "prepper". So let's talk about exactly what is a Prepper.
prepper: one who prepares. Period.
This means that Boy Scouts, homesteaders, survivalists, and even most "normal" people are preppers by definition. The real difference between a prepper and a Prepper is in attitude.
* This isn't because I'm lazy! We are moving from Cincinnati to Mississippi later this summer. I simply thought it was a shame to see this site go untended. I know preppers are out there in Ohio! Let's hear from you.
