I am a "microprepper". By that I mean, i am not building a bunker or a buggout vehicle, etc but I am a single individual building a survival lifestyle with minimum resources. This is a creative challenge that is a lot of fun. I am a 60-yr-old woman living on a Gulf Coast beach (in a cottage, not really "on" the beach itself! *LOL*) . I believe that the biggest danger is the social break-down that can accompany any kind of natural, industrial, or political disaster that upsets the system for more than a week or so, and so it is most important to be able to hunker down in-place for at least a month while learning the extent & nature of the breakdown.

This is a lot of fun because it means learning not only exactly what is needed in the home if you actually cannot get to a store and face an indefinite shortage, but learning how to use local wild foods and developing personal strength & stamina.

What do y'all think of this? Any other micropreppers out there?

I can share cactus recipes :mrgreen:

welcome from North Florida.
I guess you could say my wife and I are micropreppers because we have no plans to build a bunker and as far as bug out vehicles she and I both already have 4WD pickups for daily drivers - not out of the ordinary for our locale. (Yes, a lot of country wimmin' drive pick up trucks:cool:).
Judging by the relaxed tone of your post you are going to fit right in here.
Come on in and set a spell. The coffee's always on.:mrgreen:

Welcome to the forum :)

I've never heard of the term micro prepper before. Very very interesting.

Sounds like what I'm doing. Doing what I can on about $400 a month. Really brings into perspective what are wants and what are needs. Although lately any large amount of money I get goes straight into my preps or furthering my homestead :)

Anyways, again, welcome :) make yourself at home :)
