OK, so I'm an empty nester, broke due to a recent divorce...from which I lost all of my preps except tools, books and smarts. Oh, did I say my position disappeared, and I'm not working fulltime? Or that the new Ex-husband wants his portion of the farm, and it sells August 1st? Talk about high anxiety! I barely know where to start! My mind says wood and a fireplace or wood stove (live in MN), food stores and water filtration. I have clothes, meds, beddding, some cash....not enough, but it may just be useless! No gold or silver either. I'm an avid gardener, with lots of heirloom seeds and growing skills, but no land. Raised a farm girl, but know little about small scale dairy or beef. Friend killed a Momma Bunny by mistake, so I rescued the babies. I'll probably have future generations to sell for meat...sigh. I live in a town with way toooo many people, and can't afford to move. (2 Nuke plants w/in 150 miles now scare me more than 2012 predictions!) Lots of these people are refugees....many who don't have the language skills or maybe courtesy to follow simple signs, or wait turn in line at the stores. I CANNOT imagine this area surviving peacefully in ANY crisis like the Japanese have! So, given all this....where would YOU focus your prepping?
