    Found a great link from a post from member "Rage for Order". It should be a big help getting started.

    Hi there, Red! I'm actually doing it as though SHTF had already happened, although I admit I'm not ready to hunker down for any length of time (yet). Give me a few days to get going, and I'll post some pix. To make a long story short, if you're in financial shape to do it, I'd recommend getting a piece of land somewhere remote, and putting a small metal storage building on it. That's what I did, and through trial and error, I've actually managed to live comfortably out here. I'd recommend a southern location, because the wintertime is a BADGIRL. I've had to spend days hunkered down under two sleeping bags before I mastered firebuilding! haha!

    There is more, LOTS MORE, that I can tell you, but probably not in an open forum. Holler back at me, and we'll talk. And if we're on the same page, we'll go from there. I'm not against the idea of visitors who wanna hang out and see how it feels. I'm actually proud of what my brother and I have managed to do down here in the woods.
    I'll burn that bridge when I get to it....

    Hey! Glad you found us. I was in Virginia last year to fight a wildfire in the Great Dismal Swamp. The day I landed at the airport there was an earthquake. A few days into it we had to evacuate due to a hurricane. Mention that to your friends and family if they give you ANY grief over prepping. It isnt all about mutant zombies from planet X, prepping is about being ready for ANYTHING, even a plain ole winter storm.
    welcome aboard.

    Hi Rachel,

    Everyone here posting has great ideas and suggestions, I would like to add to them, once you find a place hopefully near water, woods and high ground, think about food storage, seeds for growing food & that produces more seeds and defending whats yours. Think about how your going to cook your food, heat your water,light the night and keeping you warm. I like cooking with dutch ovens and charcoal or wood, you can cook almost anything in them. I could go on and on, I suggest you buy some good books on the subject start reading and start doing. The last thing I'll mention is to learn a trade (gunsmith,blacksmith,pottery etc.) you can barter with if you don't already have one. it's a good way to meet like minded people as well.

    Welcome from central Alabama. You've received much good advise here. Glad that you have chosen to start prepping. My goal is to get my family off the grid. I don't have the resources to do a lot at once, so I do what I can as often as possible. Storing up food and water is a good place for you to start.
