Eastern Iowa folks who want to prepare for anything such as floods, ice storms, droughts, tornadoes, etc.
The purpose of this site is to interact with others who want to learn the things our grandparents knew and become more self-reliant.
Many of us have very strong beliefs that motivate our reasons for preparedness. At our meetups, please check your fears, politics, and religious aversions at the door. This is not the place to impress your views upon other members.
Also, we must remember that survival should not be competitive. Those who wish to see others lose while they thrive are setting themselves up for ultimate defeat. For every task, there are a million ways to do it, so don't be judgemental of HOW others prep. In my opinion, the worst thing would be for everyone to prep the same way.
The more people we have organizing events, the more this site will thrive. So, if you have an idea, please create an event. You don't have to know all the details right away. Just put up the idea and work on the when and where in the comments section. I would love to see a full calendar of options.
