Hello GiM. I think I posted my first intro in the wrong spot so I'll say hi again. I've been a small farmer most of my life, back to when I was a kid and my folks introduced me to it. My partner and I have always tried to live a fairly self-sufficient lifestyle and continue to do even tho' we are getting on just a bit. We also figure the world is going to hell in a handbasket sooner or later so we are preppers too. I found this spot by accident when I was running down some information on Berkey water filters. It looked to have some good information so I asked to join up. Thanks for accepting me. I hope I can contribute a little of the knowledge I've gained over the years if it can be of help to anyone and am looking forward to learning from others.
