Near Twin Lakes, Colorado, there is a group of people who have formed a community called Five Families, named after the five extended families that settled the area (The Donners, Troys, McKyles, Smiths, and Collins). They are a small community with a population of about 360 people.
Their problem is they need some fundamental supplies. They have water, but they need to find a way to obtain or get around the need for three things:
Building materials All the trees died and the dead trees have all been scavanged. Trees are regrowing, but they need something to build with now.
Crops They need crops that can survive in the mountainous region.
Livestock They also need a type of animal or protein to survive in the area.
What can fill these three needs?
