As the newest contributer here on the American Preppers blog for Colorado I'd like to introduce myself. Many of you might be like my wife and I, several years ago we started buying a little extra food each week to put downstairs in the pantry. This grew however from just a few canned goods to what it is today, a self sufficient food and supply store that has the ability (we hope) to last us through a year or more with the addition of a garden and hunting. To back up a little, we like you, never really thought we would end up where we are today. With the uncertanty of things in the world today both natural and man made, we never really know where events might lead us. In the future I will go over what you might consider for food stores and living supplies that you might consider collecting.
By the way, if you are new to "prepping" you are not alone in wondering if your family and friends think your screws are not only loose but are laying on the ground. I run across doctors, chiropractors, lawyers, and people with every day jobs that are asking me to fill them in on what I might know. What I'd like to know from you the reader is this, what information do you want to read about? Rather than write endless articles that don't really hit the mark, I want suggestions on what might help you. I would love to hear from you too on what you have done as I am far from the expert here, I'm just a survivor like yourself. Email me at email@example.com for suggestions.
