Be Prepared

patriot prepper

As a prepper with over

35 years of intensive experience, I enjoy meeting new people and giving them insight into the reality of prepping and how to survive cataclysmic and long-term, protracted disasters.

In recent years, in part due to an incompetent White House administration and a failing economy, there has been a sharp increase in learning how to prepare for many believe will be a SHTF (shit hit the fan) situation.

With this increased interest in prepping has come a plethora of information, and misinformation, regarding the topic of prepping and survival. My job is to help straighten out the mess and give people sound information. I have done this through video, live seminars, training other preppers to become instructors, and private consultations. I am a professional prepper and will work under

legal contractual agreement.

My specialties include designing and building Gen 4 Survival Retreats, retreat security, advanced bug out strategies, long-term food storage, water procurement, energy production, self defense strategies, and more.

I will be speaking and holding seminars across the nation this summer including stops in major cities in Florida. If you want to meet new preppers and survivalists, and learn more about prepping, I recommend that you can join our meetup group.

“Are You Ready to Bug Out” is a song I put together. It’s a reminder to get it together before the SHTF. The song is interlaced with scenes from a Tea Party march and some photos of Patriot Prepper. In light of the current White House

scandal, the reality of a government that lies to citizens and attempts to cover it up should be a wake up call. The scandalous actions of the IRS are proof that they cannot be trusted to run a health care system. (ipad users can view video – youtube

This video is intended to be entertaining and taken lightly, but also to meant to be sure you are diligent, watchful, and ready to stand by your Country. The video is also intended to be a reminder to be ready to bug out if the SHTF. So Keep on Prepping.

All citizens who want to remain free and not become subjects to a tyrannical government need to study history and the lessons given by our founding fathers. Those who love America need to unite and continuously fight for our freedom. God Bless America – Long Live the Republic.

I believe it is time for preppers to start camouflaging their guns. If you have not done so, now is the time.

I have been contemplating camouflaging my guns for years. It looks cool and is a practical thing to do for preppers. But the thought of doing a poor job held me back. Finally I got around to doing it. This video shows my Rock River LAR 8 (.308 Win – 7.63 NATO) before and after camo.

It’s not that hard to camo, and it looks cool. If I get a good response and time, I might do an instructional. There are plenty of really good vids and sources of info on how to camo.

Hurricane Preparedness Food

In light of the tragedy in the South, I would like to emphasize the need to get prepared and stay prepared for natural or manmade disasters. I have lived through 3 major hurricanes. In South, Florida we are entering the hurricane season.

Many years the weather channels predict that the season will be very busy with storms. Sometimes they are right and sometimes they are wrong. One thing is certain, during the hurricane season there is always the possibility of a hurricane hitting South Florida. If we wait until one is heading in our direction, it just might be too late to prepare. Prepare early and be safe.

This video shows the food supply that I have dedicated to feeding myself and anyone else in need of food should a hurricane hit. The food you see in this video is designated for the hurricane season only. It is not for my bug out bag, bug out SUV, or my retreat.

There is obviously more food than I need for myself and another person to survive most hurricanes. However, there are always people who are unprepared. If I have extra food I will share it and feed those in need. Sharing does a soul good.

The message: be prepared and Keep on Prepping!

Your fellow prepper,
Patriot Prepper

In this video I introduce myself to the prepping community. I have been prepping for over thirty years and want to help other preppers get squared away.

We are facing very difficult times and if we do not pull together as Americans and return to Constitutional principles our nation may not survive.

As the economy keeps sinking into a deeper recession it is important to start prepping. Our nation is practically bankrupt from government taxing and overspending, the manipulation of our money supply by the FED, and the burden of taxes and legal regulations. We must fight for America and turn back the tide of destruction. We must keep on Prepping!

In practically every survival or prepping forum there is a post asking questions like what is your favorite survival items, or in this case what are your “Top Three Items for Survival?” I recently answered a similar question in a forum, this is essentially what I wrote.

Hope I never get stuck with only three items. But if I did, they would be as follows.

1. A quality knife. I have many so different survival knives, it would be hard to pick just one. At all times, I have multiple knives on my person and BOB. 

A knife is my number one choice survival tool. It can be used for self defense, shelter building, as well as skinning and cleaning fish and game. (Illustrated above is the Cold Steel Recon Scout. The Recon Scout is a basic survival knife of acceptable quality and price value.)

2. Metal water carrier. I would need something to carry water and to boil it for drinking. Without water we don’t get do far!!!

This is a Guyot Designs Stainless Steel Water Bottle – The Backpacker. It is heavy duty and once the top is removed can be used to boil and carry water. 

3. Fire starter. I carry about 4 or 5 different types of fire starting methods and materials. A blast match or quality magnesium stick would work fine. Fire is what distinguishes us from the monkeys (almost). Nice to have fire!!!!

The Blast Match from Ultimate Survival Technologies only weighs a few ounces.

Some of the features include:

  • Revolutionary one handed design – an advantage when injured
  • Sparks three times hotter than a standard match
  • Spring loaded rotating flint bar
  • Thousands of strikes
  • Use in all weather conditions, great for backpackers hunters snowmobilers and off road vehicles

The simple tools listed above could save a life. With them you have the potential to survive.

That obviously is a quick little post. But if you think about it, those three little items really could save your life. Of course you would also have to have the number one survival tool of all time. Hope you know what that is. Yes, it’s a well trained brain. 

A well trained and disciplined survivalist or prepper could take the 3 simple items listed above and save their life. They could survive!

Now many preppers are not survivalists in the sense of practicing primitive survival skills. In many ways, preppers actually attempt to prepare for events so that they do not have to rely on primitive survival skills. But what if you become separated from your retreat location, or you can’t reach your BOB – bug out bag?  I believe you would be wishing  you had practiced some of those primitive skills that you may have neglected. 

I also realize that in our modern nanny state, passive society, even carrying a medium or small survival knife, a metal water carrier, and a fire starter is not an easy task. Yet, if we are to survive long enough to get to our cache or retreat, we just may need to find ways to carry some of the basic necessities without carrying a full blown BOB. 

I personally carry almost everything I need to get myself to where I need to be if the SHTF should happen, including a firearm. It’s not always easy, but in time you will develop the means and creative measures needed to insure your preparedness and safety. Whether a Maxpedition Verispak, small student backpack, or simply carrying the items on your body, you should have with you the tools you need in order to get to another location. 

Along with have the tools you need to survive, you also need the skills. Don’t be a list maker with out buying the tools. In the same vein, don’t just buy the tools you need without learning how to use them. Be prepared, be safe!
