Welcome to APN from north of Seattle! You ARE ahead of the curve! It does take time and money to prep for the “stuff” you want to store up, but knowledge is mostly free and ,sometimes, more important than much of the stuff. This is a great resource to learn and share and even have a laugh now and then.

Introduce Yourself • Single Mom prepper in Washington

April 11, 2017 meighla 0

Hi All,
I’m a single mom who’s been prepping for the past 3-4 years. I have a bit of a headstart, in that I was raised on a very small farm and didn’t eat anything from a grocery store for most of my childhood. I learned how to can and store food, we used a wood burning fireplace for heat, and had a well.

Fast forward to now – I live in a urban setting, but take being prepared for the next disaster pretty seriously. I have a plan for 3-4 days, 1 week, 2 week, and 1 month disasters. The next big goal for me is to get my own place (I rent now), so that I can put more cost-effective, permanent preps in place. Obviously, security is an issue, but at least I have put thought into it. I need to make more preps in this area though.

My kiddo will likely be with me for life, as she’s on the Autism spectrum with a healthy dose of Anxiety thrown in. She’s self-sufficient for a couple of weeks at a time, but really has no desire at this point to go anywhere else.

Other than that, I am a video game producer – talk about a job that will dry up – and love camping, hiking, and gardening. Found this site because I love Steven Konkoly & Bobby Akert’s works.

CJ Smith checking in and finally reaching out to the awakened. From Philadelphia PA but currently residing in a southern New Jersey shore town. I’m very alone here and unfamiliar with the territory.I would like to find people who are aware of the sad state of affairs this country is in without labeling me a conspiracy theorist. Through my research I am much too aware of the eminent collapse. It’s heart breaking how content people are with being blind to the truth.
Staying strong regardless because quiting is never an option.

Hi Strider! Lots of decent folks here in Wa on this site. You sound like you’re situated nicely. Getting the home paid off is one of the hardest things to do for many! Gold Bar is a great location too! Far less population and right at the mountains. If you have any questions, ask away. If it’s prepping related, it’s probably been covered multiple times on this site!

Welcome to the forum from another Western Washington Prepper!

Lots to learn and this is a good site to get many perspectives from.

Good reasons to Prep? Just read some of the headlines and that should be enough. Of course, not everyone is in tune with reality. Everyone has their own reason to prep. Mine? poo poo happens to SOMEONE every day. Loss of power (wind, rain, snow, traffic accident), roads closed. loss of job , social discord, etc. I want to insure against the someone being me or mine.

Greetings,

I am a member from the York, PA. area.

I am pretty well prepared and have done multiple practice drills to test myself and family.

My immediate question is where can someone find “junk” land to set up fall back resources?

Junk as in cheap acreage, just to put a small “retreat” stash and regroup camp in.

Thank you
