About Perky Prepping Gramma...

Hi there,
I am Perky Prepping Gramma and I 

am simply share my journey of a newbie preparing...

I am going to CHALLENGE YOU to do the same.

I am still relatively new to all of this. Here I will share my journey to how I have gotten to where I am at in being prepared. While I am new, I still do a lot of research as I learn new skills.
Honestly, I started this page so I as able to share on other pages with revealing my identity to my family and friends. But, I was surprised that people started to like me and I honestly shared about not even knowing what questions to ask as a newbie.
I have had to learn it all from scratch: preparing for the future, pressure canning, learning dehydrating & gardening, reloading my own & renewing my weapons skills.

Our preparation journey started in late 2011. We decided that we were uncomfortable with the way the economy is going.
We ramped up in the fall 2012, as I found a wider community to learn from.

In this short amount of time focusing on our goals, we have managed to store two years worth of supplies. Our biggest accomplishment to date, was we were able to get out of debt and purchase our own "retirement" farmstead for CASH.
That's right! We aren't rich, so I believe that you could do it too.

One thing I encourage is to read through the blog posts here and the photo tab on my facebook page. When I started I did that with several trusted sites & it really jumped started my search for knowledge. It is a way to learn things very quickly. Sort of like reading a book.
I am interested in meeting others, particularly for the D.C. Metro area.
Just so there are no surprises: I am also a follower of Christ, though everyone's faith journey is welcome & respected here. I served in the Army (Military Police). 

I am married to Mr. Perky, we have two grown children (both boys) who are married and we are grandparents x 6. 

Please feel free to follow me on Facebook at Perky Prepping Gramma. There is a lot more information under the photo tabs there. I have slowly been trying to transfer it over to this blog. I interact better there at this point in time. Feel free to share pictures of your journey, what YOU are actually doing.
Welcome to the journey and I look forward to hearing from you!
