About Me and The Prepping Guide

The Prepping Guide is a blog on prepping, life skills, survival and self-sufficiency which can hopefully assist you with your own prior preparation.

I started working on the first etchings of The Prepping Guide in 2016 and having been a member of several of interest groups and sites, and being able to blend the flexibility of civilian life with lessons learnt from the military, I decided to lay out that knowledge in this site.

My belief is that with the right tools and the right mindset, you are able to face any unforeseeable risks in a manner that ensures your safety, and the safety of those around you. When it comes to the value of life, that information is priceless.

About Me

We are a lot alike, you and me. We are both interested in what happens when plans fail and disaster strikes.

Mud-covered and in the jungle. Thats me.

So why do I write about prepping? I choose prepping and survivalism because both have played such a strong role in my life. It started when I was a little child taking my first step outdoors, to busting my head in a cubicle corporate law farm, then off to wearing a uniform and carrying out room clearance drills.

First, let me confess something, I write lists. It is how these words made their way to your screen today. I have been making mental lists since I was a boy scout. I’d learn the steps of tying a knot, just like my own shoelaces. One, two and three. As I grew older, I learnt that sometimes these simple steps fail, so I needed to plan for those failures.

My career took me from writing lists in law school, to etching out failure plans in a corporate law firm. This wasn’t enough for me, my passion for the outdoors and critical thinking led me to the army where I spent a number of years and was fortunate to work overseas.

All of that has resulted in my work on The Prepping Guide. These are highly valuable lessons I have learnt in my corporate life, my army career, my failures and my planning. Why are they important? Because they keep myself, my family and my friends safe, healthy and for the most part, happy. And I hope they do for yours too.
