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.
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 Survival.com 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. Drop me an email if you are interested in this.
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.
NO SPAM ALLOWED! I hate spammers, so no worrying about your email box being filled with it.
