    Cool Hello from Toronto, Canada

    I browsed the forums before posting, I see there are a few other Canadians here

    I'm married to a man who thinks preparing for anything (except financially) is a silly idea but he is very happy to miraculously find emergency supplies and extra water/food in the house during a prolonged ice storm or any other blackouts
    I'm Eastern European, we were born preppers, it's deeply ingrained in my culture because our governments historically starved out whole populations, every family I know back home has secret food/water/medicine/supplies stores and great survival skills.
    We have two kids, ages 6 & 9, I teach them everything I know, they have been cooking for themselves and us for a couple of years now.
    Without my husband's help, I managed to store 3 months+ worth of food, water, first aid, batteries..etc but I'm looking to learn as much as I can from this forum, will ask a lot of questions and hopefully contribute any way I can.

    I'm very interested in topics like teaching children to be self-sufficient, family safety, vegetarian preserving & cooking using my wood fireplace..etc

    Welcome from Florida.
    I can understand being prepared as part of your culture. Although I have always lived here and never had to worry about our government, I was raised by parents who came from small town America and survived the Great Depression and then World War II.
    Being prepared is part of my culture too.

    Thank you for the welcome, this makes a lot of sense.

    Hello, and welcome to the forum. I think the word "Prepper" is a major hang up for a lot of people, makes them think of some crazy people like seen on tv. Whenever someone has a wife, husband, or any other partner who shies away from prepping, then I think the word itself should be avoided around them. Might sound silly, but I honestly believe that is the hangup with a lot of people.
    Not a thing wrong with having some extra, food, water, supplies around just in case of bad weather or something else, just don't be one of those crazy preppers like seen on television (know what I mean?).
    I came from both parents who lived through the great depression in this country, so I have preppering instilled in my blood too. Anyway, welcome again to the site, glad to have you here.
