About Me, and Prepping:

I’m very allergic to conspiracies, and they really don’t help you survive what’s coming. The real world is ugly enough without having to chuck in conspiracy theories and other assorted crap. There’s going to be plenty enough to do when it all comes down, and I wanted to write something that ordinary folks could put to good use. I prefer to keep a quiet eye on the news, and contrary to the sensationalist garbage that National Geographic may portray, I don’t dance around the woods wearing camouflage, or tote an AR-15 in my spare time. I disguise my drills as fun activities that normal folks do, and offline, I keep my prepping to myself and my spouse. Even close friends and neighbors who do prep do not know the full extent of what I’ve been up to, but as I help them along (and to be honest, as they help me along), we all learn more, do more, and we have a good time doing it.

I do know that prepping is gaining widespread adoption in our society, and overall this is a good thing.

200,000+ unique downloads (not counting other sites folks may have hosted it on) tell me there are a lot of people who want to know more, and want to do more. I want to help that happen.

The more of us overall who prepare, the less we will have to worry about on an individual basis once it does go ‘splat. There are going to be enough folks out there who will end up without, and we’re going to need all the help we can get.
