The Survival Project


What is The Survival Project?

The Survival Project is more than a book and e-book, it is also a phone app and this website that helps bring the community together!

I felt compelled to start writing this book a few years ago, while living overseas, as I began keeping notes about what to do if something bad happened in an area that I was in. I felt trapped not knowing the language very well and I thought to myself what would I do if some sort of disaster happened? (The book’s format is taken directly from the notebook that I created back then).

So I began learn more of the language as I should of from the start, but at the same time I began learning more and more techniques that would keep me safe. I started remembering what I had learned in boot camp and military training that I have forgot over the years.

I began a short newsletter to help some of the people that lived in my area and then the great idea finally came me, so I started working on this book.

My time overseas was over and I departed with a heavy heart, but I knew that I really wanted to get back to my book. I knew one thing, that I didn’t want to create a normal paperback book.

My Idea for the book
I want to create a book that will be usable for years to come, by creating a book that covers a little about everything we should all need to know and that can be edited as needed. So I came up with the idea for making the book contained in a three ring binder that has separated sections, an e-book, and also a companion android based phone application.

I have been asked many time why don’t I just create a website and put all the information on it, that’s a great idea, but not practical if the grid goes down.

Note: Originally I wanted this book to be completed in the form of a three binder as of today (October 29, 2014) I’m not sure if this will ever happen just because of the costs. I might release some limited copies this way, but it is starting to look more like paperback is the best solution for now.
