Not afraid of TEOTWAWKI, but wanting to be ready to ride out the next emergency/disaster, presumably natural, to affect my community. Have always been interested in living off the land. Do garden and forage some and can, freeze, and dehydrate some. Can cook on open fire or in solar oven. Also can sew and do needlework. Found y'all by looking for canning persimmons, a fruit we have in abundance and which I already freeze and dry. Always looking to learn.
