Hi, all, located the link to this forum from the FTF. I'm extremely interested in homesteading and disaster preparedness - in whatever form the disaster might take. A lot of the issues that many people on this forum face (and a lot of the legislation you have) are not relevant to me, but I see a lot of stuff that is and that which isn't is extremely interesting to read about. My preparedness is largely centred around surviving natural disasters - seismic and meteorological, mainly - with an increasing interest in more sustainable living to help weather the ever-increasing cost of living. I'm also an avid camper and tramper, so being prepared to survive in the wild - physically and mentally - has been a long-term priority. Looking forward to learning and sharing such knowledge as I have based on my own experiences.
