Description:  We are a small but active group of friends that are working together to learn from each other, teach each other, and be able to depend on each other if times get rough. Our focus is on building community, providing both classroom style and hands-on training, and generally learning self-sufficiency while sharing. A good portion of the classes are based on group input and sharing.

Our Motto is:  Survive. Thrive. Help Others. Help Yourself. No matter what your goal is in the prepping process, this site will help you connect with others of a like mind.
