I grew up in a quiet rural area. My youth was spent in a tent, and if it wasn’t set up in the woods, I was sleeping in it, out in the back yard. I am at home in the forest, even when alone and at night. I am a lifelong kayaker, canoe paddler, shooter, hunter, and fisherman.
I understand the value of hard work, fixing things, to keep them working, and the wisdom of owning a pickup truck and a solid pair of work boots.
I currently 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.
When I moved to the suburbs, of this metropolitan area, I was amazed by the sheer number of people, who knew none of these simple things, that I had taken for granted.
It’s time to get back to my roots. It’s time to share what I know, 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 refining 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. 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. I will not regurgitate the same topics and posts that we’ve all seen a million times on other blogs and websites.
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: Let me meet your first question head on, and save both of us some time
- What’s in my Bug Out Bag (or Emergency Bag)?
PSS: Here are a couple of posts, so you can see what this blog, and I’m about.
