Come join a group of folks interested in training in self-reliance, disaster preparedness, wilderness survival skills and homesteading. Our objective is to learn and practice the skill sets and mentality that will keep you alive if trouble strikes and more self-sufficient in your every day life. This group is focused on actually getting out in the field and doing hands on training. If you want to be a part of some serious training to become more independent and self reliant, this is the group for you. Who knows, you may get to know other people that have the same way of thinking you do.
