Hello I have been lurking, reading posts. Thought I would pop in to say hello and introduce my self, read some more, post a few questions. Looking forward to talking and exchanging ideas. I would like to get more prepared for anything that might come up. I do have some skills and I use them now in my every day life. I make my own soap, laundry soap, and butter. I can make chain mail and tan hides. That's not all but I'm sure you have better things to do than read a long list.
