Hi, I am truly new to a prepared lifestyle, just beginning... just! I am here because I am quite disturbed after doing minimal bits of research about the reasons why long term preparedness would even be necessary... I am convinced that impending possibilities are looming in the very near future. I simply will state that I love my family and want to do what I can to prepare for emergencies, disasters or other situations that would require a family to sustain itself for an undetermined length of time. I know that I have a lot of work to do and a long road ahead. Thanks and God Bless!
