At Survival Sherpa, our vision is simple: Helping each other on the climb to self-reliance and preparedness…the Survival Sherpa way…One step at a time.
Whether you are a newbie or a veteran prepping in today’s uncertain times, we all need help navigating the uphill journey to self-reliance and preparedness. I’ll help show you the route, help with the gear, and guide you on your journey.
Who’s behind this Survival Sherpa thing anyway? I’m the husband to the lovely Dirt Road Girl, proud father and grandfather, a government school teacher, a lover of the primal lifestyle, and blogger who is passionate about living a self-reliant lifestyle full of liberty. Since my first teaching/coaching job in the mid 80′s, I’ve left the classroom several times to pursue other interests. My journey has taken me to foreign countries as a missionary, a real estate investor, pastor of inner-city kids, and general construction (when I’m hungry). Not sure where I’ll land when I grow up.
I love liberty, self-ownership, guns, primal living, Austrian economics, self-reliance, reading history, and spending time with Dirt Road Girl and family. I stubbornly resist the State (described by Lysander Spooner as the gang of robbers and murderers). Being able to voluntarily exercise free will in a free society excites me. If my choices lead to my demise, at least I’m spared from any externally determined fate.
I’m very grateful for those who have guided me and my family on our journey to self-reliance. Many unsung heroes living in anonymity have encouraged me to take one more step. It’s time to give back.
In my day job, dependence on the system is a way of life. I use to think I could change the system. Now, not so much. That’s why I’m always ranting about taking your preparedness into your own hands. The societal safety nets won’t last forever. If you’re new to preparedness and self-reliance, why not take the first steps toward personal independence? Browse the links and resources on this site and see how deep the ‘rabbit hole’ take you. I think you’ll discover a rewarding journey full of hope and confidence in your future.
The older I get the more I realize I’m no expert. I’ll offer advice or what has worked for me. Some ‘experts’ profit from doom and gloom. Don’t dismiss me as a Pollyanna. I’m aware of the craziness going on around us. Just be careful who you get your information from. Don’t take anything I say as truth unless it’s right in your own gut. Verify for yourself. Live life. Have fun. Life really is short. Live it with passion and reckless abandon.
Maybe this site will encourage you to begin preparing and start your journey to personal freedom, independence, and self-reliance. There are so many people willing to share skills and knowledge. I hope you’ll take the opportunity to help yourself and your family. How hard can it be, right?
