    I have great interest in old ways for a new world. We are all facing a global meltdown that is rapidly changing everything that we were taught and that we have worked our lives for! Who is prepared and is it possible to prepare?

    Welcome to the forum! Glad to have you with us!

    I think the old ways are great. They're sustainable, and in our case, with not a lot of funds available to stockpile stuff, learning how to grow, produce, or make the things we'll need is a priority.

    The Foxfire has a great insight into what was common place in the 19th century. Those practices were handed down and practically taught to each generation as a way of life. To most, even the concept is lost on the majority of people. There are many resources that are out there i.e. Mother Earth News ( one of my favorites), Grit, and of course the net. The best resource is the aging America, the things that our aging seniors can tell us is invaluable. My mother passed away last year at 91 and I enjoyed talks with her in the last years, of her childhood on the farm.

    Hello Juplanter! I definitely think it's possible to prepare. A lot of hard work and time invested, but possible none the less. LOVE the Foxfire books!
