Preparing for the worst and hoping for the best has been my philosophy as far back as I can remember.

I will include links and videos I have found useful to accomplish my preparedness.

I encourage you to visit this site regularly for updates.


What is SurvivalBlog?

(You can read all of SurvivalBlog back to its inception in 2005, in our archives.)

I’m James Wesley, Rawles (“JWR”), a survivalist author. I’m a former U.S. Army Intelligence officer and technical writer. I’m now a full-time novelist and part-time blogger and retreat consultant. I founded SurvivalBlog in 2005, and now serve as Senior Editor.  (To contact JWR  see our Contact Page.)

Because of SurvivalBlog, we are part of something bigger: a virtual community of some of the most brilliant people that you could ever meet. Despite our differences, we all have an interest in preparedness. More Here:

I don't believe in luck, I believe in Prepping!

The site hosts a number of prepping videos from various sources.

Hey y’all, and thanks for stopping by our website. Our names are Doug and Stacy and we live the pioneer lifestyle in the 21st century in an 1800s style log home we built ourselves. We have been living off grid and homesteading with no public utilities for the past decade where we preserve the old ways and get closer to our food. Our passion is to blend “old ways” with a modern twist so people like you can be more self-reliant, live an intentional life, and be a healthier you.
