Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why should I take your word for anything you post?

Answer: You shouldn’t. And no one else’s either. Your and your family’s survival is your responsibility. The internet has a tremendous amount of information available to those wanting to prepare for emergencies. Some of it is excellent, and some of it isn’t. Some of it is posted by people who know what they are talking about. And some of it is posted by well-meaning people who have a lot of theories, but little real world experience. And there is a LOT of it posted by people whose only interest is selling products or getting you to join their on-line “Survival Club”. (for a monthly payment off your credit card of course) You need to do your research and figure out what works and what doesn’t for your situation. The people who have the ability to make serious decisions based on logical thinking are those who will survive. My posts are based on 40 years of experience. ( See my “About Us’ page). Others with just as much or more experience may disagree with me, and often do. Just like a Doctor’s report, get a second opinion. And a third, fourth, fifth…………………

2. What makes your blog any different than any of the other prep blogs out there?

Answer: Besides being brand new? I started this blog as an adjunct to my defensive firearms training business and because I decided to expand into survival and preparation training based on the increasing interest that many of my students expressed. I have always been a “Prepper” or “Survivalist” or whatever you want to call being logically prepared for life’s emergencies. I started looking at other survival blogs and found many, many good ones. But I noticed that many of them seem to have a confusing array of articles that it would be difficult for someone who just “saw the light” to really know where to begin. So this blog is geared towards those just starting out and I am trying to keep it in a simple, easy to follow format for the Beginning Prepper. Once you get your feet on the ground, you will understand how to utilize the tremendous amount of good information out there, and hopefully filter out the BS.
