What’s A Survivalist?
Survivalists or preppers are individuals (or groups) who are part of the Survivalism movement. We are actively preparing for a natural or man made disaster that would necessitate self-reliant living. These disruptive situations could be anything from changes in the Earth’s climate or devastating storms to chemical spills or bio-weapon attacks to the general socioeconomic collapse of a society resulting in food and/or supply shortages. Our survival blog attempts to address as many possible scenarios and provide detailed information relative to survival in a post apocalyptic world.

A Short History Of Modern Survivalism
The modern Survivalist movement began in the Cold War Era when American Civil Defense promoted Fallout Shelters and survival training for school children. The movement gained popularity and a more widespread audience throughout the 1960s and 70s as inflation and the devaluation of the US dollar continued. The arms race between the USA and the Soviet Union in the early 1980s turned the focus of survivalism away from economic collapse and towards nuclear war. In the late 1990s, the Y2K computer bug renewed interest in emergency preparedness as it threatened our financial and energy sectors with collapse and shortage. When humanity’s vulnerability was highlighted by the infamous September 11th attacks and subsequent terrorist bombings in other major world cities (Madrid, London, Bali) and the environmental disasters that followed (earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricane Katrina, etc.) survivalism and preparedness came back into the mainstream focus again as record numbers of American’s realized the need for an emergency preparedness plan. The more recent credit collapses in the USA and other nations as well as global grain shortages have drawn an even greater and more diverse group of Americans to prepare.
What Is The Survival Blog?
The survival blog is designed to be a resource for suvivalists, preppers, and those interested in back-to-basics living. Self-sufficient living was par for the course for our ancestors, but has fast become a lost skill as we rely less and less on our own ability to survive and more and more on the state to provide for our basic needs. We seek to revive an understanding of self-sufficient living as well as disaster preparedness so that if and when the SHTF we’ve got the best possible chance of community survival. We believe that education is the best path to the end goal of societal survival and aim to provide useful information and education.
