Life in America, in these borders of the great ol’ U.S. of A we have a proud tradition of being the beacon on the hill, where dreamers come to make them a reality and that good-hearted people, like you and me came, and can still come and improve their lot with moral and honest work. Where you pick yourself up by the bootstraps, wipe the sweat and blood of your brow, and get back to it. This is the America I was brought up to believe in, the USA I remember.
Many factors have come into play for this information contained on the site, in the videos, in our guides, tutorials, courses and data to be most appropriate to know, learn and practice. Economic turmoil, market flunctuations, and natural catastrophes have taken a toll on what used to be stable and commonplace. Add to that the influx of other political and philosophical views trying to “fundamentally change America as we know it” have also played a deepening part in the need of being truly self-sufficient.
Somewhere along the way the best of the best life hacks for being self sufficient, that provided those in the past the talents, skills, and know-how, have been forgotten. With each of life’s basic needs, food, shelter, and companionship the methods of doing it right have been lost from the general public’s awareness and its common sense values vanished. We use Aquaponics as a stepping stone and, providing yourself with an independent food source is crucial to being self-sufficient, but we aim to look, highlight, and teach so much more. Welcome to the Journey!
