Progress Report: Making the dog food bag tote bag was a bust.  The handle only lasted one trip to the kennel.  Thinking of investing in an L.L. Bean Boat & Tote bag.

Progress Started: We finally got a chest freezer and are now looking to purchase a quarter- or half-cow. With this cow and/or other animals, I want to practice dehydrating, canning, and biltonging meats. I also plan to lay up other storable foods. I'll consider my food storage goal accomplished if I have a full chest freezer and at least 90 days worth of food that is canned, frozen, or stored in some other way.

Progress Started: I'm taking Geoff Lawton's Online Permaculture Design Course and receive my Permaculture Designer Certification in July.  I plan to use this to help plan my future homestead once I buy land, as well as use the skills gained from that to help others do design work and increase that entrepreneurship goal.

Goal Completed: I want to "prepare to prepare" with organization. I have done some prepping in my life, but have done a lot more thinking about it. If I have a document outlining some plans and timelines, I'll be more on top of doing and less on top of thinking about doing. And yes, I recognize the irony that this is still sorta thinking about it, but I'll keep it in my documentation kit, so technically its a kind of prep of its own. ;)

Progress Report: On pause for the time being. I've made quite a bit of money in past few months, but I had to spend it. (Yes, HAD to spend it.)
