(For when the country is ever in a panic again, like 'Cuban Missile Crisis', READ THIS!)

This site is devoted primarily to the topic of "survival." To many people, this conjures up the image of nothing more than being lost in the woods, waiting for search & rescue teams to find them. Staying alive to be found is a vital part of Survival, but there is so much more to it than just that. I consider "survival" to be a way of life. As you can see from the topics on the next page, I see "survival" as centering around the family - be it immediate, extended, or adopted. The better a family is versed in the "basics" and the more diverse it is in abilities, the better the chances are of surviving any catastrophe.

Why plan for ill times? Personally, I can see no alternative *but* to plan and prepare. From a purely pragmatic standpoint, those with plans and preparations can continue their lives in (relatively) normal fashion during a disaster. There is also another side. Consider these ancient "wise sayings:"

In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil,
but a fool devours all that he has.

The prudent see danger and take refuge,
but the simple keep going and suffer for it.

Those of you who have read the Old Testament book of Proverbs may recognize those lines. Part of my belief in "survivalism" or "preparedness" stems from my religious faith. This may offend some people, but "that's the way it is."
