We're always looking for way to get better prepared, the wife has taken up canning along with want to learn how to make more stuff for long term storage.
Went through a couple job loses, and a battle with the wives breast cancer and though we never had to do with there were times it got tight. Today we buy and stock pile as much as we can, but we're always looking for better ways to prepare for more hard times. Also my sister and her husband are doing the same and we work together to provide what ever skills, equipment and supplies that the others might need. We're looking for a meeting to look for new ideas and source of supplies, so more meetings would be great.
