    Hi, I'm Roger and my wy and 2 kids live in nw Gratiot County, Mi.

    I am a millwright by trade, and grew up on a dairy farm.

    We have our house and a few acres. We consider ourselves modern homesteaders, but my friends say I'm a serious prepper.

    Looking forward to reading the threads!

    Thanks. The 'serious prepper' part comes for the pov of little things, like I can convert our house well from needing electricity to hand pump in less than a ½ hour if need be (it's in our basement), and dehydrating and canning (along with small and large game hunting and all sorts of fishing).

    Silly kids! ;)

    Our well is outside but we also can hand pump if necessary. We could also se up a rope and bucket system if the seals in the hand pump failed.
