Introduction This blog is not meant to be a typical daily blog about what I do everyday but a teaching blog, a source of preparedness topics and self-reliance information that I have tested and use for my own disaster survival. My parents were born in 1901 and lived through the ‘great depression’ by gardening, canning and raising rabbits for food. These skills were never abandoned throughout their lives. So I grew up living the self-reliant lifestyle and never regretted it. For as long as I can remember I have practiced being self-reliant and have always admired the early pioneers and the amount of endless hard work they had to do to stay alive. I started this blog in 2008 and since then have tested and posted about the most important topics of preparedness. I’m coming to the end of relevant topics so you’ll notice a slow down of new posts although as some of the topics are eight years old I will be updating them with current information. A couple months ago I considered shutting down the blog due to the work it takes and the lack of meaningful topics but since changed my mind and will keep it open so new Preppers have a reference source into the future.
