    Just joined up last weekend. With the spring storm taking place outside right now, I thought I would take this opportunity to check in. The family and I live in western South Dakota. Good Lord willing, we will be moving to our off grid mountain land in just about a year. Sooner if possible. I am semi-retired, spending most of my free time now renovating the house instead of paying someone else to do it.
    Been around a bit, done some things, but always looking and willing to learn from others as well as myself in the doing. I fear for our country and where it is heading.
    I enjoy growing or harvesting as much of my own food as I can and preserving it, being as frugal as possible without being ridiculous, shooting to stay proficient, sharing with friends and family, and drinking a good beer after a long day. We are tired of working for other people or entities and we are looking forward to being our own bosses and being on our own timetable when we make our move.
    Anyway, I plan to look around and see what I can learn and who I can meet.

    Unfortunately no. Father in law was a ham operator prior to health issues and will be looking for guidance from him when we get established.

    Thanks Devil Dog.

    Stay warm. That nasty weather should be hitting you pretty hard about now.

    Welcome to the Monkey @Kavode. Since you grow your own food, is any of the flooding out there going to delay your planting?

    I will keep that in mind and pick some brains in the future, as well as getting some thoughts and opinions on some other projects I have planned over the summer months to get ready for the move.
