Interested in surviving the uglyness that seems to be comming from everywhere. I don't expect the "buisness as usual" politics of both parties to make things get any better in any way. I expect things to get alot worse & have been trying to become as self sufficient as possable. I raise chickens & hope to get goats soon.

interested in picking the brains of other like minded folks & perhaps meeting people in my area looking to barter/network or just B.S. over a fermented beverage or two.

I love a good conspiracy theory but, try not to get too caught up in any of them. Clearly "we the people" are being lied to but, I don't claim to know the answers. feel free to tell me what you THINK is going on but, don't get upset if I don't jump on board. God bless America & DEATH to her enemies, foreign & domestic.

Welcome Much to learn here. Things to ponder follow:

Have a BOL?

Self-sufficient? Garden? Stored food?

Reload? Cast bullets? Practice with your firearms?

Practice permaculture? Gather wild foods?
My wife & I moved here 3 years ago from S Florida where I was born & raised. We both love it so far as Fla has become a land of crack houses & gated comunities with bossy H.O.A.s & I have no use for either.

Not sure what a BOL is.

Trying to be self sufficient. our 14.5 acres has a small spring fed stream that runs (so far) year round & tastes like drops of heaven. We raise chickens (as stated in my first post) & have attempted a garden twice with minor success. We raised a fabulous crop of cucumbers (too bad I don't like the things) some stunted corn & onions. also a small amount of tomatos that were good but, not enough of them to brag about.

We just got our first set of solar panels, a small/cheap ($260) system that charges a couple of deep cell batteries (not included) & you can run a couple of house hold appliances from the battery with a converter.

We've got about a months worth of stored food & I hope to save up about 6 months worth. The woods around here are crawling with forrest lobster & smaller game. If things get worse than I expect (anything is possable) I won't hesitate to toss a coyote, stray dog/cat or chicken theif in the freezer but, I doubt/hope things don't get that bad.

I used to reload & cast bullets years ago with my dad but, not reciently. I may get back into it but, I'm not currently hurting in the ammo dept. I practice a few times a year with the firearms but, not as much as I should. I did pop a skunk reciently that sprayed my chained dog, took a kitten & scratched up momma kitty.

Not sure what permaculture is. I have eaten some black berries & grapes that grow wild in the woods & they were good. wild onions & strawberries grow like weeds in the grass. I've treid those but, they suck.
