Dennis H., ex-Fire Department and a military retail store owner

dennish howard

A life long hunter, fisherman, and outdoorsman, after surviving a devastating tornado touchdown in his home town, he saw the effects on people’s lives as they struggled to cope.  He built his first bugout bag a few weeks later and has been a dedicated prepper and survivalist since that time.  He as attended numerous schools, camps, and training to hone his skills.

After retiring from the fire department, Dennis opened a retail store catering to the military, law enforcement, and like-minded individuals in the preparedness community.  The store offered Dennis the opportunity to become familiar with the best of survival and tactical equipment.  As a licensed firearms dealer, he also had a chance to handle, fire, and evaluate a wide range of weapons.

Dennis closed his store several years ago and now concentrates on his large garden and greenhouse, keeping his shooting and tactical skills sharp, reloading, and teaching his grandsons the skills they will need in the future.

Bryan Lynch, Outdoor Enthusiast and Author

bryan lynch

Bryan grew up in the Midwest and spent every waking moment outdoors. Learning how to hunt, fish, read the land and be self-reliant was part of everyday life. These teachings from his parents were invaluable and he has carried them him wherever he goes.

As a teenager, he became more interested in emergency preparedness. It wasn’t long after that he started his never-ending journey of learning about being self-reliant and prepared. Eventually, he would combine his passions for the outdoors, emergency preparedness, and writing. His goal was to spread positive information about this field in an effort to educate and help as many as he could.

Bryan is a published author with Fox Chapel Publishing. In 2019, Bryan authored the book, Swiss Army Knife Camping and Outdoor Survival Guide. His second book, Paracord Projects For Camping and Outdoor Survival, is scheduled to be released on March 2, 2021.

Bryan Rucker, Outdoor Expert

bryan rucker

Brian Rucker has spent his entire life participating in essentially all things wildlife. His concern grew astronomically during the previous tensions between the United States and other nations. He also has grown a substantial interest in survival and sustainability due to the current shape of the world over the years. He believes that preparation triumphs all things.

First, he looked into nuclear weapons risks due to the tensions at that time. Later, he decided to take what he already knew from his years of wildlife experience and learn more about survival and sustainability so that he would be better prepared if disaster struck. He’s spent years researching the ins and outs of potential disaster, both manmade and naturally occurring.

A few areas that he has studied include supervolcanic eruptions, solar flares, nuclear and EMP blast, not to mention hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, wildfires and much more. His ultimate goal is to learn as much as possible on a consistent basis, so that he can not only learn new things himself, but help to inform others as well.

Elijah Langford, an outdoor enthusiast

There is a certain loneliness that the wilderness provides. Elijah has been seeking that particular loneliness since he was very young. The first introduction to this elusive feeling was brought about while fly-fishing. Since then, he has sought ‘smallness’ in everything he does.

After cutting his teeth on the art of survival in the Ozark Mountains, he has become proficient in flintknapping, fire-making, fly-fishing, and foraging. After leaving Arkansas, and then Tennessee to chase the trout he dearly loves, the Colorado Rockies have become his permanent home where he resides with his wife and daughter. When he is not outside tinkering or stalking trout, you will find him at home writing, painting, and caring for his extensive orchid collection.

Mr. Smashy

Since I could hold a rifle I was taught marksmanship, and have shot competitively at different levels and in different events throughout my life.  I’ve fired and maintained a variety of small arms, with a focus on US service rifles.  Growing up, I’ve always been taught self-reliance, and my experience as an adult has only reinforced this.  I strongly believe in having a family emergency plan and preparedness in general.

I am a Boy Scout and an avid outdoorsman.  I specialize in knives (and other cutting implements), various knots & lashings, traditional skills such as blacksmithing & woodworking, Bushcraft and fire starting.  I am in the process of outfitting an operational blacksmith/wood wright shop for use as an instructional aid and as a home for my hobbies of knifemaking, woodworking, and leatherworking.
