I have many years of service in the defense industry and am a reserve officer (prior active duty). During that time I’ve lived in/deployed to/served in over a dozen countries, which has molded my worldview.
Growing up on the family farm in rural Nebraska led to familiarly with farming, firearms, and outdoors living from an early age. My wife, three young children, and I currently live in middle America, a few hours car drive from my home state.
As I note in the Why Survivalism page and The Case for American Collapse post, I believe the Western world is today more vulnerable to both natural and man-made catastrophes than at any time in our past – from terrorist attacks, to natural disasters, and even financial meltdown.
Some survivalist types almost sound as if they are waiting for the end of the world as we know it (TEOTWAWKI) with eagerness; to me that’s insane. I truly hope these plans never have to be put into action, but it’s worth planning for.
While the title of this blog is “Suburban Survivalist,” that refers to me being a survivalist in the suburbs, not trying to live with my family in the suburbs post-TEOTWAWKI, which is a losing proposition some think they can make work (I believe they will almost all fail, especially on the east coast).
