Hi Everyone, Just joined the forum a few days ago. I've been posting and had neglected to introduce myself! My husband and I have started a homestead in NW Virginia. We live 12 miles from the WV line. Our goal is to be as self-sustaining as possible. If the power should disappear, we will have the tools and skills in place to keep going. Thank you so much for creating this forum! I'm delighted to be here!
