I have experienced way too much in my lifetime so far and have been a long time Informed, Independent voter striving for self-reliance (with at least utilities) since the 70's; I have hiked all over North America, including ski back-packing, hunted, fished, milked cows and goats and even help build a straw bale house. I was tested in the past on just what I could and would do under a crisis. My ex was one of the hostages in Iran (from the first attack in Feb, not the 52 taken in the 2nd attack in Nov) and was there when the SHTF. I saw people get their heads blown off and guts spilled on the walkway while stuff was blowing up eight ways from Sunday and to this day don't know how I kept myself from puking or going insane. Then not long after returning to the states, I had my home broken into and the "thieves" came straight to my locked bedroom door and broke it down. I was armed and on the phone with 911 and shot. I am not proud to say I killed one of the intruders and crippled the other, but I am thankful I was "tested", passed and know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I can and WILL defend me and mine!

I am currently living in an urban environment but am in the process of putting my house on the market and looking at land in what I call "Big Snow" country. I want what I remember from youth living with my grandparents on their rural farm. I want to work for me and not some corporate entity. I want to be self-reliant. Thanks to support from my grown children I have stopped making excuses and am actively going after my dream ...

Anyway, over the last 30-40 years I have accumulated a ton of information on homesteading, preparedness, survival and just plain independent living. Most of the information I have, y'all probably either already know or have yourselves, but I do have some stuff that maybe you do not. They are kinda organized by subject type:


Animals - Pets - Livestock
Communication - Technology
Defense - Protection
Emergencies - Natural - Man Made
Energy - Electrical - Transportation - Heat - Cooling
First Aid - Medical
Food & Garden
General - Homesteading - Surviving
How To - Make What You Need - Hunt - Trap
Preparedness
Shelter Building
Tools - Equipment
Water & Sanitation


Although I do have a couple hundred documents posted on the web, I have much more that I will not and cannot put on the web. Please read the attached Excel Workbook and if you see something that you desire, let me know and I will send it to you.
