SurvivalCache Writer Interview: Jimmy C

Jimmy C was an infantry marine in the USMC and USMCR for six years until he was honorably discharged for a disabling injury Jimmy Cthat would keep him performing his duties further. Never before an outdoorsman, Jim began a life learning about and working towards self sufficiency using old world practices. After seeing the collapse of structure security after 9/11 and Katrina, combined with the the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, Jim decided to get prepared as best as he could to take care of his new family and himself for what may lie ahead. Jim has stockpiled years of food, water, ammunition, and is developing a survival network in his community in order to ensure the survival of his family. His goal is a community that will thrive in any economic collapse, power grid failure, nuclear fallout, or some other catastrophe that will require people to fend for themselves when the structure falls again.

Jimmy C currently has locations east of the Appalachians and west of the Jimmy C Apocalypse 101 National Geographic Channel Rockies with multiple stations built for the traditional “wait it out” method for short term threats, but he also has bug-out strategies in place as a contingency for long term self sustained living for up to a year. Jim also trains in self defense, tactical shooting course, physical training courses, and accumulates books on old world native American living, old and modern world medicine and dentistry, as well as modern day survival tactics.
