I've always felt a little out of place being a female with a unquenchable interest in how people survived without so much technology. I've been that way since I was a little girl- throwing dolls on the ground and rubbing two sticks together instead. Becoming a homemaker, I've finally put my passion to servitude by putting together long term food supplies for my extended family members and friends. I found a great way to do it affordably and practically. Now, I'm trying to help anyone who wants to build a great food supply so that they can enjoy the prosperity of America while we still have it and not have to be in total fear of economic and political frailty- although caution advised. I'm already learning a lot from all of you and can't wait to get to know you better from this forum.
