I’m just like you. I work 9-5 every day. I have a family and young children. I tell dumb jokes. I’ve never served in the military. I live in the suburbs outside of Washington, DC, so bugging out or finding a survival retreat is a necessity, but hunkering down, and bugging in, might be our last resort.
I grew up in a rural area, so I am comfortable in the forest, even when alone and at night. My youth was spent in a tent, and if it wasn’t set up in the woods, I was sleeping in it in the back yard. I am a lifelong fisherman (fresh water), shooter and hunter. I have confidence with my bow, firearms, or with my slingshot, in a pinch.
I understand the value of hard work, fixing things, to keep them working, and the wisdom of owning a pickup truck.
When I moved to the suburbs, of this metropolitan area, I was amazed by how the sheer number of people ,who knew almost nothing, about these simple things, that I had taken for granted while growing up.
It’s time to get back to my roots. It’s time to relearn what I’ve forgotten and to hone what I still have. My blog is based on all of this. A rural guy and his family fine tuning and testing our plans of preparedness and self-sufficiency, and fine tuning any bushcraft and survival knowledge, that we may have.
You and I will become more preparedness oriented. Together, we will learn to survive and along the way we’ll pick up the tips and tricks that work best. We will build our own arsenal of essential skills to carry us through, anything and everything, that the world can throw at us.
I promise to keep the posts coming, make them innovative, to find the products that we need to know about, and the information to make us stronger. All you have to do is to promise to read and share these posts, to be interactive, email me and comment. Let me know what you want to see or what you need to know.
You have already taken the first step, and found this blog. Let’s continue working together on this. We can make this happen!
PS: Here are a couple of posts, so you can see what this blog, and I’m about.
You can hear me and the rest of the crew, Tuesdays, on PrepperChicks After Dark!
