Another thing, some of the females on this forum have user names that don't specifically identify them as female.

 ;D I would say that almost once a week on TSP I have someone who thinks I am a guy LOL.

Cedar, it might be that your forum title is that of being the Chuck Norris of Homesteading. Chuck Norris not being known for his... ah... feminine side.  ;D

The "Chuck Norris" is a relatively new thing that a moderator gave me. I have been here two years and from the very beginning I have been 'mis-gendered'. I have always chosen what i think are gender neutral nicks, but apparently they are leaning towards un-feminine anyway. Oh well.. it is fun when people find out I am female.

62 and going strong although the inner child keeps trying to convince me that I'm really 24. I just don't find that  most aspects of prepping are gender specific and so I end up posting wherever I find a subject of interest being discussed.

Yup a girl here too.  Was quite a while the guys thought I was a guy.  While I thought the guys were gals.   ;)  It can be funny that way.  I have so much going on that I am doing more reading here and there.  winter time I can spend more time here.  I also have other places that I frequent that are more relevant to what I am doing at that time. 

I think you will find most of the people here very friendly willing to help and genuinely care.  Quite often many are very quick to lend a helping hand to someone in trouble.

Glad to see there are ladies on this forum. Makes me feel better knowing I am not the only female prepper. I am a little over middle age, in my 60's. But we to need to keep up with what's happening to our country and be prepared for the worse of all phases. Hurricanes, tornado's, a collapse of our country, whatever the case may be, we all need to be ready. Hope to be of some help as well as learn a lot from everyone on here.

I am new to TSPF and am trying to learn my way around the forum.  I am also female though it may not be discernible from my user name.
Think I qualify as "A lady of a certain age", one thing's for sure, I am certain of my age  ;)

Funny story, I was almost placed in a boys dorm during a weekend stay for a college honor band when I was in high school because I accidentally put my (androgynous) nickname on the form. I found this out a year later when I ended up enrolling at the school and talking with the band director.

I'm a lady here :) and was wondering.  But as I spend more time on the forum I do find that I go to the specific forums to find info or post questions.  There is so much information I try not to duplicate questions.  Unless I'm three pages in and still haven't found it.  Cedar has posted on many or all of mine and is always full of great information.  I'm so glad for so many lovely, smart people here.

I think it is hard for the guys, not only because of our user names, but also because we are hunting, fishing, take care of yourself women.  A lot of guys aren't used to women who can drive a tractor and change their own oil and dress out a deer so they assume we are guys.

Yep.  I think you're right.

Me! I'm only 28, and new to the forum, but I suppose that means the number of ladies is increasing  ;)

(KNOCK-KNOCK)

HELLO? ANYBODY HOME?

I believe I have been gone for three months! It is spring and I had a great deal to do!

The garden is now planted and the press-on flooring has been laid in the bathroom. I always HATED the avacado green and gold floor in there but the money has not been there to replace it. Well the money is STILL not there so I went to Home Depot and bought $22 worth of cheap plastic squares and I hope they last for 2 years! The new color looks like black marble instead of avacado and gold from the 70's.

I should be putting up sweet corn next weekend. And, if my watermelons are STILL not up then I need to buy seeds or it will be too late to grow them. DS and I went fishing last week and came home with 2 bluegill which we had with lunch. I had to kill my rooster, which was hard but he hurt himself (his back?) and he could not walk.

We had to put down my son's at due to kidney failure. We tried out a dog but she did not suit us, and so he has replaced her with a kitten. It's a nice little guy who plays with our dog. (The dog we returned was lovely with people but tried to attack the dog 3 times. So she could not stay)

How have you folks been? How is the summer shaping up for you folk?

I'm in my mid 30s and I've had an interest in survival/bushcraft/homesteading almost my entire life.  I'd love to meet other, more experienced people :)
