In these uncertain times, it’s obviously very important to be prepared for any type of emergency or disaster relevant to the area in which you live. We’ve seen in recent years the devastation, even in our own country, that floods, hurricanes, blizzards, severe drought, and more can wreak upon a large or small community. We’ve also witnessed the results of what happens to people who are unprepared in these circumstances. Being basically prepared is something that is just logical to keep your family safe. But how about for the long term? Yes, many of us have a few weeks or months of food and water storage for our family, or at least have a plan of some kind. But just what IF something truly devastating were to happen? The kind of thing that might create a severe food availability problem?

It's been my dream to have a homestead for a LONG time. Finally, we bought a property about an hour out of Las Vegas, NV in the high mountain desert. It's small...but it's working. What I have realized is that you can homestead anywhere....even in an urban environment. When I look back now on my life in Las Vegas, I recognize I've been homesteading in various ways for years! We've just expanded, that's all! Our property is 3/4 acre of desert land, and we are making this work! It's so exciting! I'm dedicated to learning with and sharing with other like-minded people...all about being self-sufficient!
