About Us

For the majority of my years here on earth I have been planning and prepping. It started when I was young, camping with my father and brother. Making fire, building shelter, fishing for dinner and eating it later on. Each time we would have one of our adventures, I would find myself thinking about bringing a sharper knife and better gear to make our camping trips more comfortable. As soon as I had a few dollars saved, I was always buying new and better gear and equipment for our trips. As I got older hiking was my go to . What was the best pack? How could I pack more food not that pack and I even spent much time researching and weighing hiking items to minimize my load.   

      I also started thinking about what I would bring to make those trips not only comfortable, but enjoyable. I would make lists and remember to bring the fresh lemon for our fish and to bring a collapsible table for dining. It seemed the more I planned, the more prepared I was. For me, being prepared took away the uneasiness of the unknown. 

      In my adulthood, I expanded on prepping and planning. I continue to learn. Fly fishing.Gun safety. Food storage. Meal prepping. Water Storage. Bug Out Bags & Vehicles . Safe rooms and bunkers. To me, it is all about gaining more knowledge to build a better plan. Planning leads to preparedness. Yes, some people will roll their eyes, and others will outright call me crazy, but when COVID-19 came to town, we had plenty of toilet paper, hand sanitizer and rubbing alcohol. We also had enough food to feed my family for years.

     I look forward to learning more about how I can prepare for the next unknown. I am now confident in saying it's not if the next disaster will strike; it's when.
