Firstly, thank you for visiting our site!
My name is Chris and I created this site to help ordinary people prepare for the uncertainties of the modern day world. This may mean making a bug out plan for you and your neighbors or simply packing some EDC items to take to work with you. Either way, a well prepared society is the best safeguard against any natural or manmade disaster.
I am an avid outdoorsman and have been interested in survival planning and tactics for many years. My training in survival and bushcraft began as a pre-teen in cub and boy scouts where I ultimately became an Eagle Scout and then adult advisor among the troop. After moving away, I continued my learning on my own on various trips and excursions around the world.
The writing for this site comes from a lifetime of experiencing the outdoors and using the types of tools, skills, and tactics discussed here. I have lived in upstate New York, NYC, and currently reside in Sydney, Australia. I am happily married to my incredible wife Amy and together we have a young son whose name is Felix. We camp as often as possible and are in love with the outdoor lifestyle. We are avid fishers, hikers, campers, surfers, scuba divers, spearfishers, and travelers.
You can keep up with our family’s adventures here: Chris and Amy Abroad
