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 preparing in today’s uncertain times, we all need help navigating the uphill journey to self-reliance and preparedness. We’ll help each other on the path, help with the gear, and guide each other on our journey together.
Who’s behind this Survival Sherpa thing anyway?
Hi, I’m the husband to the lovely Dirt Road Girl, proud father and grandfather, a government school teacher, a lover of the primal/paleo 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, bushcraft, reading, 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.
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’ takes you. I think you’ll discover a rewarding journey full of hope and confidence in your future. And it all starts by Doing the Stuff of self-reliance.
The older I get the more I realize I’m no expert. I’ll offer advice or what has worked for me. Don’t take anything I say as truth unless you verify the info and it sits right in your own gut.
There are so many people in our community willing to share skills and knowledge. We hope our efforts here will encourage you to begin preparing or continue your journey to personal freedom, independence, and self-reliance.
Keep Doing the Stuff,
