We don’t have to live in fear of doomsday, end of the world, or apocalypse but shouldn’t neglect the possibility that some form of crisis may develop.His approach is to look past the emotional hype, weed through personal biases, activist agendas, and political & financial manipulation to find relevant, factual data on the possibility of disaster and prepare an appropriate, broad, and flexible response for our family. Preparing is more than just a list for home or vehicle preparations and more than basic camping or extreme survivalist type lifestyle- this publication emphasizes knowledge of simple wilderness skills, challenging ourselves while having fun.From forest fires, extreme weather, or natural disaster to society turmoil and government bureaucracy, a prepared family will live a lifestyle that maintains the ability to completely care for themselves without outside intervention from relief aid or government intervention. In any disaster the basic questions should be answered. Is the crisis a natural disaster or manmade (the worst in society)? Is it safer for my family to stay put or safer to evacuate to an alternate location (to bug-out)?The author believes the typical prepper develops an emergency plan based on amassing vast amounts of military surplus equipment as their foundation for disaster recovery may find himself unprepared for a true disaster. Gear can be lost, stolen, destroyed, consumed, or rot.It is the author’s opinion that the best way to prepare for calamity is the ability to turn to nature’s bounty for safety and personal needs. He stresses that most critical asset that we possess is knowledge, specifically primitive outdoor skills. With the primitive living skills necessary to thrive in the wilderness, a family blessed with more than expected will simply have a welcomed but unnecessary level of comfort.
