Welcome. Please check the thread titled "New to here" by MotherBear, and see my reply there for some general prep tips, if you like.

Welcome to the forum Dragonfly. With your children's ages, you should be able to teach them to protect themselves as well. See if you can find a gun range that gives family memberships and go diligently. Let them rent and try a variety of weapons before laying down the money for something.

Hello there! Now dont try to do everything at once, like I did. Itll make ya ping out :). Gotta start with the basics like water, food, medicines, and grow your stock piles and catagories from there.

Welcome! Mahogany is right. Pick areas to accomplish with small steps. Trying to take on too uncheck will drive ya batty. Gun shows are over inflated in price. Local gun stores will offer better deals or you can purchase off the grid.

Welcome to the family Dragonfly.

The very reason i started prepping, my twins are 9yo and i started prepping about 5 years ago. More serious about 2 years ago.

The very thought of failing them both scares the hell out of me AND drives me harder to be prepared for them.


Welcome and enjoy!
