Hello. My name is Bethany. I've been interested/involved in prepping since about 2008. I have been on several different forums in those 7 years, under a different username though. I'm 1.5 years married, we have full custody of my 9 year old stepson and I stepped down from my job as a trauma/ER nurse to homeschool kiddo through a few years of school. (For the record, working Level 1 trauma center is less stressful than doing accelerated homeschooling for a 9 year old starting to go through puberty.) Due to career and custody arrangements we live in the suburbs for now. Though with the rate of urban sprawl in our area its getting harder and harder to not live in the suburbs. I'm interested in checking out the forums, getting to know everyone, and getting back into the world of preparedness.
