We pick up where we left off in episode 248. I’ll share 5 more lessons I’ve learned from 15-years in survivalism.

Seems a lot of people enjoyed part one of the 5 Important Lessons from 15 Years in Survivalism series. So we're going to keep things rolling with a part II and part III.

Everything in life is a journey, as the cliche. And along the journey, you make mistakes and course corrections. As you progress your view of the journey changes. Maybe you develop new strategies to replace old strategies. Perhaps you find you understand something completely different from experiences.

These are the things that shape us. And by sharing them we help others progress faster, lose less time, stumble more infrequently, and stay in with more conviction.

As a side note: The title of this series is 5 lessons from 15-Years. I can’t say when I really got serious about prep. The show started in 2010, but I think this all started in 2003. By started I mean where this started to be something I thought about and engaged in daily.

Note: Comment on this episode and share lessons you've learned along the way. These lessons should be the things you would tell you're younger self or someone just starting out.

Survivalism Lessons Covered:

  • Last Week
    1. Why you can't reasonably become a human swiss army knife.
    2. Why All answers need context and nuance.
    3. How Planning and Prepping For TEOTWAWKI is a recipe for disaster and burnout.
    4. You can't force your husband, wife, or life partner into prep. But you can probably lead them into prep.
    5. Almost everything needs an ROI in the immediate future; especially in the beginning.
  • People are your greatest asset and danger in an event.
  • You're better off keeping it to yourself - most of the time.
  • Most preppers think all other preppers are probably loons, and they're right. But only 1% of the time.
  • Nothing is as easy as 'old-timers' make it out to be.
  • Skill almost always supersedes gear.

Arthur Bradley is a NASA engineer by day and a prepper author by night. (A real NASA engineer, not like the sort of nonsense Jonathan Jason and myself used to tell women.)

This isn't just a cool side-note. His vocation shapes the fiction he writes: Facts and realism play a key role.

And there's a much deeper reason Bradley has all the potential to be a great prepper author. But we'll get into that in the episode.

Beyond NASA and the fiction books, he's also written a several non-fiction survival related book. And he's something of an expert on EMPs.

From his bio:

His "Handbook to Practical Disaster Preparedness for the Family" has been featured in the New York Times, Money magazine, the Toronto Sun, Popular Mechanics, Men's Journal, the Costco Connection. The handbook is widely recognized as the gold standard of family preparedness manuals.

The Survivalist Series and Arthur Bradley:

  • How he came to preparedness
  • How he came to writing before The Survivalist series
  • The authors who influence him
  • His favorite books
  • The disaster type that keeps him up at night
  • The inspiration for The Survivalist series
  • Is he telling a great story, teaching through a story, or both
  • Why he chose to write a Pandemic scenario book rather than an EMP book
  • His most important piece of survival gear
  • His go-to rifle of choice
  • The heartwarming story about the best $100 he never spent
