The Daily Survivalist
Why We Started This Site
Once upon a time, I thought of survivalism as a fun activity that got me in nature and away from the wear and tear of daily life. It was an escape…a way to not only lose sight of all the things I didn’t want to think about, but also a chance to discover new things about myself and the world around me.
Don’t get me wrong, I still feel that way, but lately it’s become much more than that. Lately, it’s felt more like a full time job than a part time hobby.
The United States, and really the whole world, has suffered ever since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Quarantine, riots, political division and countless other factors have left many of us struggling to hang on and wondering when it’s going to end. Life has suddenly turned into a cruel game of survival, and regardless of when you might be reading this, I’m sure you’ll still be able to agree with me.
If you made it through 2020, this photo will likely bring a grim smile to your face. There might have been a time when you genuinely wondered if you would have enough money, food, or toilet paper to somehow scrape by until you could get more. Suddenly, the thought of getting a generator, or a stash of non-perishable food didn’t sound so crazy anymore.
The world is an unpredictable place that almost never has your best interest in mind. Whether you have any desire to pursue survival training or not, I urge you to at least try and pick up a few essential skills for your own well being.
On this site, we’ll be sharing helpful content related to more than just wilderness survival and bushcraft – we’ll be covering urban survival, self defense, psychological stressors, and much more. We’ve realized that survival training is no longer something that should remain purely associated with roughing it in nature. As time goes on, it’s becoming a way of life, and we’re here to teach you how to make these survival techniques as natural as breathing, so that you can focus on other things that matter.
