Are you already preparing your home and family?

We have been slowly collecting "old school" items, camping equipment, RV's, foods and medicines, as well as knowledge for the past couple of years. We've also begun aquaponics gardening, for fish and food.

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

I have been gardening, making and preserving foods, and herbal medicines. We've learned to raise goats, chickens, & rabbits.

What do you hope to learn more about?

Our limited experience needs much broadening. Learning to slaughter and butcher animals is next on the list. Need to secure a suitable bugout location.

Are weekends or evening MeetUps better for your schedule?

Any time is fine for meetings. We are retired.


We are grandparents in Rochester prepping to care for our kids, grandkids and greats in the event of a disaster.
