“Prepare for the worst but hope for the best.” – Anonymous English Proverb
I grew up in the suburbs, with all of the comforts that come with that. I assumed that was the way things always were and how they always would be. Then, one day, I had an awakening. I realized that most of us felt the comfort and safety in being part of the system was largely an illusion.
I realized that if the proverbial shit were ever truly to hit the fan, government institutions could not be relied upon, and we could only count on ourselves to survive. I realized that I had a lot to learn. This site aims to chronicle that journey and serve as a guide to others to help them in theirs.
The purpose of this site isn’t to predict if when society is going to collapse. There are many smarter people than me trying to figure that out. I really don’t have the answer there. The purpose of this site isn’t to scare the crap out of people.
That isn’t in line with my philosophy. The point of this site IS to offer a ton of useful information to allow people to PREPARE for anything that COULD happen. They can then live their lives with peace of mind, knowing that they have the tools and knowledge to handle it no matter what happens.
I am by no means an expert in every aspect of this stuff. I plan to learn, and when possible, enlist the help of experts in various fields to come together and offer their knowledge. In a few years, I dream that this site will be a virtual survival encyclopedia and allow a total novice to come on here and be supplied with everything they need to become PREPARED FOR ANYTHING.
So feel free to browse around and leave some comments. All I ask is that all participation is appreciated; you treat each other with the utmost respect, even if you happen to disagree on something. We’re all at different places in our lives and all doing the best we can at the given moment.
