About Survival Sherpa

Todd Walker is married to the lovely Dirt Road Girl, proud father and grandfather, a lover of the primal/paleo lifestyle, and a government school teacher. He is the owner/writer and editor of Survival Sherpa, a website about their journey to self-reliance and preparedness and home of the Doing the Stuff Network.

He also feels stupid about writing this in third person, so he’ll switch back now…

  11. I have nominated you for the Blogger of the Year Award please visit the post to pick up your award. Congratulations !



    • Desert Rose, you made my day and you make me smile :) I got into this blogging thing when DRG was diagnosed with cancer a year ago. It’s been a great outlet for me in the early morning hours. Alone time is rare – but necessary.

      I wanted to say a big ol’ thank you for thinking of me for this award. I’m sure there are many more deserving of the honor. My hat is off to you for the value you add to people through your work.

      Many blessings on you and yours!

  42. Hey Todd, I really like your blog. I have a blog but honestly with unschooling my three boys and running my urban homestead and other important things in life I do not set aside time to update it much. Anyway, I do want to offer this to you if you are interested: how about a few guest posts by me? I cannot guarantee a lot and you are free to say “no, thanks” to anything that I write or give me feedback to make the post better. Send me an email if you want to discuss this. Elissa


    • Elissa, I’m totally interested in having you guest post!

      I couldn’t find an email addy from you blog. Give me a shout via email at: survivalsherpa (at) gmail (dot) com. I look forward to hearing from you :)

    Hi Todd, I am just starting on this self reliance road. You talk about a Rabbit Hole :-) I feel more like I’m in a whirlpool! I finally decided water was the most important item. Only after I received my Waterbricks did I realize I need a water filter so I can fill them with good water, and drops or tablets or something to purify it. Argh! Every time I start to work toward something my head starts spinning.

    Can you point me toward a good BEGINNER book? My husband would like me to have 6 months of food on hand. There has to be other things I can get besides Hamburger Helper.

    I just found this page and have read a lot of them. You have some great information and it is easy to read and understand. I know that you are from Georgia as am I. I retired from the military 5 years ago and have found that I don’t really fit in normal civilization. But, the outdoors mainly the woods I found to be my saving grace. I feel free there and like I belong again. So, thank you for all the articles and keep them coming.


    • Glad to hear you found us Will! And thanks for reading!

      Getting into the wild or even a nature hike through a park heals our soul. There’s scientific studies showing the amazing benefits of getting out there. Makes me centered.

      Again, thanks for your support!

  257. Hi Todd,

    Came across your blog through twitter. I’m a school teacher myself here in Australia and interested in self reliance and getting back to age old skills. Good preparation is the best defence. I have a blog myself where I curate useful information for people interested in preparing well. You have very good content and I hope you will give me permission to use some of your content on my site with full accreditation back to yours. and maybe even write an article on my blog. The very next thing I’m going to do after submitting this post is vote for this site. Thanks again for what you do.



    • Thank you for stopping by, Michael! Good to meet a fellow teacher. You’re more than welcome to use whatever you find useful! Please stay in touch and keep doing the stuff of self-reliance!
