Are you already preparing your home and family?

Beginning. Canning, herbal garden & knowledge, medical knowledge. Lots of thought on subject. Beginning handgun skill but don't own one yet.

What are some skills and/or knowledge you can bring to the group?

35 years as RN including ER, very good in situations requiring keeping calm and prioritizing. Primarily life experience especially a realistic understanding of people in crisis. I have mediation/negotiation experience and a highly developed ability to "read people". I can team build and rapidly sort people to tasks matched to their strengths. I am clearing a shade herb garden space and buying parts to set up an aquaculture system.

What do you hope to learn more about?

Storage not requiring electricity but those commercial long term storage things are not for me, I have allergies, space and financial limits. Solar dryers anyone? I'd like to network with others who have a long term survival interest in case a bad winter storm isn't the worst we face.

Are weekends or evening MeetUps better for your schedule?

My time is very flexible


Having evolved from a naive young "can't we all just get along" to an old cynic who does not think the systems (financial, weather, govnt) are really able to work, I want to hold my own destiny Just In Case.
