Tell us a little about yourself and what got you interested in learning to be prepared for possible emergencies.

A couple of years ago I had a constant, low-level worry about being prepared. It seemed to always be at the back of my mind and I finally realized that in order to not worry about it, I needed to DO something about it. I got a water bath and pressure canner and learned how to can. I got a food dehydrator and learned that too. Next was medical supplies, a Volcano II stove, buckets of staples, and eventually many cases of #10 cans. My latest purchase was a GoalZero Extreme 350 Adventure solar battery/power system. I am a sewer and quiltmaker as my main skill.

How prepared are you and your family to live comfortably in a down turned economy with limited resources; supply chain disruptions; monetary hyper inflation/dollar collapse; fragile power grid; social unrest/absence of law enforcement; other? (1-5)

I'm a single woman that lives alone, an hour away from my adult children, and would like to meet other people who are preparing for whatever may come our way.
