Welcome to Gorge Preparedness!

Your go-to site for instruction, tips and skills for thriving in trying times.

At Gorge Preparedness most of us live in the woods, some of us drive great distances to work in the big city, while others of us work closer to home.  We live where stores are many, many miles away, neighbors are to be cherished, your word is your bond and doing a good deed daily is a way of life. Where we live, life moves at a slower pace and we work hard to keep it that way.

We believe in giving, serving, being self-reliant and being grateful to God for all things. We believe in being prudent, looking ahead to see what is coming and being prepared for whatever that is... a big snowstorm or silver thaw, flooding, "Gorge winds," the only road out blocked, forest fire, earthquakes, or the cost to buy a tank of gas—more than our budgets can absorb.

Planning ahead, being prepared-- is important to us.  Striving to always do it a little better drives us to learn from those who are better at doing "it." That is why we decided to share our journey with you—to invite you along so that ALL of us together can build more resilient families, neighborhoods and communities—so that WHEN we NEED to do it "ourselves" we will do it and thrive.

The topics of our local workshops are fueled by our own limitless curiosity and needs.  We invite you to let us know if there is a topic you would like us to offer.  Likewise, if you would would like to become an instructor and you live what you teach we would like to hear from you. 

Come often to this website, keep up on our monthly tips, sign-up for some workshops and browse our on-line store.  We invite you to join us, learn, have a lot of fun and make some new friends along the way!  Also we would be honored if you would help spread the word and "Like Us" on Facebook.
