I am a father and husband, a veteran of the U.S. Navy, scuba diver, sailor, wood turner, avid reader, and writer.
My experiences include military training adventures from the jungles of Panama to the shores of Japan. Sailed on a 40' sailboat in the Virgin Islands and weathered, 22' ft seas onboard a salvage ship off Taiwan's coast. Slept in hoards of biting jungle mosquitos eating MREs and stood midwatch on the fantail of a Naval vessel in the south Pacific.
My eyes have seen things that make prepping and survival skills a no- brainer. The more self-sufficient you are, the safer you and your family will be. We have a great life in the West, but we often live with a false sense of security. Civilizations come and go. Civilized is a thin veneer.
