I'm not able to do a lot of the prepping I'd like to do for financial reasons. I am, however, working more towards self-sufficiency. I grow much of my own vegetables, have 2 peach trees, and and trying my hand at growing hops this year. I may even try to grow some barley and make my own beer using ingredients that I grew myself.

I live in the suburbs of Colorado Springs on approximately 1/4 acre.

I'm here to learn as much as I can and share what I'm able to.

Thanks for having me.

Welcome. This is a great place to gain new knowledge and ideas. As far as money being a issue, there are lots of preps to be had for free or cheap if you keep your eyes open. Frequent yard sales, thrift shops, auctions, and even dumpsters. Just this evening I spotted a trash pile along the road. Picked up 2 near full propane tanks along with some yard toys for my kids. Determination and inginuity trump cash.
