Hi, just saying hi. I'm from Michigan and this is the first prep forum I've joined. In Michigan I feel like a lot of people are "accidental preppers" just because we've been raised to can and store food and what not. Also a lot of backwoods engineering going on So I've got a lot of ideas to fine tune about alternative energy sources when the grid goes down. Anyway, I've seen a lot of great advise on here so far, and hopefully I'll be able to give some in return.
