I have not run into a lot of preppers in the Northern VA area. Anyone out there? I am in PWC. I raise my own rabbits and grow over 200lbs of fruits/vegetables each year. Anyone else have any tips/tricks, etc?
From Rockingham county VA.. Garden, some rabbits (though I have yet to begin large scale breeding), caching, food and water storage, trapping, hunting, have read and practiced most ragnar benson lessons: I study metallurgy, chemistry, field nursing/warfare medical training, botany as well as defensive retreating and other survival tactics. All while maintaining social normalcy (not an easy feat as a 23 y.o.)
Finally to the point of locating and establishing a retreat location. Somewhere just outside national forest territory.
I'm down in SE Virginia, Norfolk/Virginia Beach area. Tiny little house, tiny little yard, in a residential area. No major gardening or animals here, although I'm gonna try to grow some potatoes/herbs in buckets, at least.
