Hi Kevin. Peoria area here. Appreciate the welcome. Feel free to reach out .
Greetings Holly. Peoria area myself. Appreciate the welcome. May I reciprocate the greetings. 🙂
I see debt minimization, food storage, water storage/treatment as the “big 3”. I spent 2015- 2020 getting our house paid off early. Car notes are generally paid at double, or triple rates in order to get out from under sooner. I’ve spent the rest of my time, organizing my supply areas, putting things away for rainy days, and making my shop area more useful. I’m a hobby knife modder…love making things that sorta work into things that really work. I’d be interested in finding local folks that wanted to get started or that are on the way, and need ideas, etc. Happy to learn or teach. Kinda a desert here in Illinois….not many souls seem interested. Anyway…hope this answers your question. Thanks much.
Appreciate the welcome. I’m a professional brown water mariner (barges). I’m pretty useful tying a line, splicing, knife sharpening and modification. Truth be told, I’m looking for some local folks to get acquainted with. In any event, happy to be here.
Good morning. If you purchase a bicycle inner tube, cut out the valve stem,…. you’ll have all the ranger bands you could ever require. I just recently bought a second inner tube as the first had finally been consumed (it sustained me for years). Also, as another option…ponytail hair ties. I have a couple “cards” of the black hair ties purchased at any big box store. Both are very useful. Hopefully this was helpful. Have a great day.
