I’ve been playing around with outdoor survival long before I heard of the internet and had no idea what to call it. Survivalist? What was that? Prepping? Never heard of it.
I’m a man of many different interests and the outdoor survival and hiking side of me came and went like waves of curiosity over a 30 year period.
Over the last couple of years, I’ve gotten more serious about survival and prepping, and the internet helped me take both to new levels I hadn’t experienced in the past.
As a side note, I don’t want it to sound like I’m an old man that just discovered the interwebs. Trust me, I’ve been here almost since the beginning, even earning a modest online income for over a decade. Nuff said.
Here’s the cool thing…
You can find anything you wanted to know about survival and be prepping online, usually without spending a dime. YouTube alone can keep you busy almost indefinitely.
Here’s the problem…
There’s so much online about survival, gear, prepping, techniques, principles, shooting, and on and on, that the terms “information firehose” and information overload quickly become very clear while what you’re actually searching for becomes too much to handle.
I know, I’ve been dealing with that same firehose for a long time.
