(Updated 11/5/2021 with new links) The Prepper's Yearbook is available for sale! This is a dream for me as it is the first book I have ever written!

During the pandemic, we had people moving back here to the farm to stay and work until their circumstances changed. We went from a house of two to seven at times.
