Ohio Preppers Network (OPN)

Well, I have been asked to help with the OPN and I agreed. I will be posting articles over there as well as here on my blog. Check it out here.

I agreed to help Joel out over there because I believe it is important to help as many people as I can realize that wether or not you know that something bad is about to happen, it can. And yes, many people need to realize that it can happen to them, too. The world doesn't play favorites, and bad things happen to good people. Also, I want to help people realize that they can be prepared for emergencies and tragedies at all income levels and situations. You don't need to build a bomb shelter in the backyard, but you could if you wanted to, I suppose.

This blog, The Farmer Geek, was started to be about homesteading and my learning process for things I don't know. There will be plenty of that, (especially as soon as the weather turns for a longer period of time), but some of the articles I post here will be over there and vice versa. There may be some posts over there that don't get posted over here, as well. We will have to see how this evolves.

I will say this, if things get too bad, I will step down from helping over there to focus here because thefarmergeek is my first blog and my primary.

Thanks for reading, and I hope to be able to keep everyone interested and coming back!

Congrats. I don't think Kansas has one yet.

Chris, what can I say, maybe I am! (If I am, I don't know it!) I don't necessarily agree with everything, (but then when do you agree on everything that someone else thinks?), but its a good way to share info.

There is one for Kansas, but no one has stepped up to take charge of it, yet. One person went and grabbed them all, but they aren't doing it for each state, they are asking for someone in each state to handle it. If'n you want, send 'em an email!

I already checked in on that, I meant that no one was writing for Kansas yet. I don't think I would be able to. If we can't get a satellite at the homestead I wouldn't be able to keep writing.
