Hey all, I'm new here. I'm from Maryland (i know.. i know...). My wife and I are heavily indulged in the self sustainable/survivalist/homesteading lifestyle. We decided that society isn't going the way we really want it to go and that it's imperative to our lives and the lives of our future children that we learn to be completely self sufficient, self sustainable, and to live a happy life surrounded by a community that is more geared for us. I hope to find that here. I also hope to teach some, learn from others, and find a few friends along the way. Thanks for reading. Merry Christmas everyone!
