2009 Self Sufficiency Challenge
For 2009, I'd like to try, every day, to do one thing that advances my ability to rely on my own resources, rather than others, for my existence.
Not sure what I'll do each day. Some days might be as simple as collecting eggs from my chickens or produce from my trees. Some days might be learning a new skill or starting a new project. It should be a challenge to come up with something everday, but not, I think, an insurmountable one.
I'll post my results, and if anyone else cares to join me, I'd love to hear their projects (and possibly steal some of them to do myself!).
For those of you who joined me in this challenge in 2008, I hope I didn't lose any of you by moving this thread! And I hope you all keep posting your efforts! It has been inspiring!!
