Plan and Prepared

Me and the Loyal Companion

A former outdoor survival instructor, I currently work as a police officer in a suburb of Oklahoma City.

I found myself beginning to prep just a few years ago. I fought the term “Prepper” for a long time, as I believed the media had given it a negative connotation. Instead, I was “being prepared for unforeseen events”. But let’s be honest, I was merely arguing semantics.

I’m still not crazy about the term. But it is what it is.

Although I started just a few years ago, I have a long history of being outdoors and developing survival skills. It started in my teens, as I was a Boy Scout. I loved it, and made the rank of Eagle Scout at age 16. I camped every summer, including a 2 week stay in Scout Camp at Philmont, NM.

In my late teens, I attended a 3 month outdoor survival school, where I eventually became an instructor. I taught others primitive living skills such as land navigtion, primitive fire making (bow drill), how to locate and secure water, how to make primitive shelters, and other survival skills.

Getting ready for warrant service

Tough clothing for tough times

I pursued a career in law enforcement, and have been a police officer since 1999. That fostered my love of firearms and the shooting sports.

Currently I am assigned to the warrant team with my department, though I cover the city lakes in the summer time.

For a year or so, I wrote articles for a great site, GrayWolf But he encouraged me to branch out and try this on my own. So I have. But I will reference that site quite a bit. If you have not visited, I encourage you to do so.

We also have Guest posters from time to time that submit original content to the site. I am always happy to have guest posts. As I have received a lot of requests about this, I wanted to put this out there.

First, the article HAS TO BE original. What I mean by that is that it can NOT be submitted anywhere else.
Unfortunately, a few guests in the past have submitted the exact same article to several sites without tell me or the other site owners what they were doing. (Prepper site owners frequently talk to each other).
Search engines (like Google) penalize sites that have “duplicate content“. So I ask that those who wish to be a Guest poster that they not post the content to other sites. It hurts the site’s search engine ratings.

If you have questions or comments for me, drop me a line. I try to answer all, though sometimes it might take a little time.
