It’s not all about the ‘Zombie APOCALYPSE’  


It all started when…

Over the past few years I have been considering the ‘what if’ scenarios. ‘What if’ a hurricane hit near me…..’what if’ a tornado were to wreak havoc in my area, ‘what if’ I were to find myself in a situation in which I was deprived of the basic, modern conveniences that we all have grown accustomed to. How would I react? How would I survive without power, water or readily available store-bought food? Let’s be clear, I am not a weekend warrior, I would in no way consider myself a ‘Profession Survivalist’. I’m just an average guy that works, comes home, has a few hobbies and likes to spend quality time with my family. I live in a suburban area and work in an urban area. So what would I do if _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ (insert catastrophe of your choice)….

So, my search began for the most cost-effective, feasible and reasonable gear to keep on-hand should the unthinkable befall me or my loved ones.

The internet is a big place, full of all sorts of merchandise and opinions. It can surely make your head swim, trying to decipher it all! I have, literally, spent hundreds of hours searching for gear, checking reviews on gear, watching videos, learning ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’. Then it hit me…Surely I’m not the only one trying to make sense out of all this!

So, my goal is to try to break down a lot of the jargon, theories and dogma that surrounds the ideas of ‘being a prepper’. Maybe I can open someones eyes to an idea, perhaps suggest a piece of gear that was not thought of before. And, hopefully, I’ll learn some in the process!


The ‘Don’ts’

  • You don’t have to believe in the ‘Zombie Apocalypse’ to be a ‘Prepper’

  • Though it may help, you don’t need military training to survive a disaster

  • You don’t have to invest a fortune to have quality gear to see you through

  • You don’t have to take a survival course

The ‘Dos’

  • You do need a logical and actionable plan

  • You do need gear that is of good quality, after all, your life could depend on that gear

  • You do need to focus on basics

  • You do need to know your limits and the limits of your gear
