For this inaugural blog post we wanted to do our best to address the multi-faceted reasons that folks should be getting geared up and trained up for survival. Many folks consider survival gear and training to be something akin to paranoia. Nothing could be further from the truth. Those of us like myself, who spend some part of every day either preparing or considering survival methodology simply consider ourselves more prepared than paranoid. While there are survivalists out there who spend most of every waking moment, prepping and preparing to the point of paranoia, the vast majority of us want to simply be able to take care of ourselves and those that we care about no matter when and where disaster may occur.
One need look no further than recent natural disasters such as tsunamis, earthquakes, and hurricanes to see that most of the civilized world is wholly unprepared for such an event to occur. We are now incredibly dependent for other entities whether they be utilities, governments, or grocery stores to provide us with three Ws; warmth, water and waffles (food). If the heat in your home went off, and stayed off, for an extended time would you know what to do? If the water source that provides your home with water became tainted, do you know how to get clean water? If the grocery and convenience stores that now surround you suddenly had no re-supplys brought to them, what would you do for food? If these are questions you have asked yourself, then you have come to the right place. We at Dan’s Depot want to make sure that you have the necessary items and training so that you no longer have to ask yourself these questions, but rather, you too can be prepared. Check out our site and see all that we have to offer. We have gear all over the place that we would love to professionally ship your way. We are working on a very active Youtube channel so that you have all sorts of hints and helps on both gear and survival/preparedness tactics. I am particularly happy to partner with Dan and his crew to offer real life, in-the-outdoors training on a host of topics including, basic and long-term survival, land navigation (map and compass), wild game trapping and hunting, and much, much more. We offer training in easy to get to Central Kentucky, as well as being willing to travel to your location if you want to host us.
Someone asked me a long-time ago, “If someone gave you only five minutes to live and you could call anyone, who would you call, and what would you say?” The message to me was, why wait? I am imploring you to do much the same. Please do not wait until a disaster occurs or you find yourself lost in the wilderness to determine you need something. You will find it here on our site, on our Youtube channel, or in our trainings. Don’t wait, take care to start getting yourself prepared today!
