Ken Jorgustin’s survival blog focuses on a wide variety of preparedness topics varying from short to long term actions and solutions for wide-ranging scenarios of preparation… for daily life, disaster, or even SHTF collapse. Subjects include situational and risk awareness, the dangers, systemic risks, and avoidance of dependence upon the major ‘modern’ systems that we take for granted, topics of self-reliance and self-sufficiency, and practical solutions to live a way of life while surviving these uncertain times. Modern Survival is Preparedness For Life Preparedness is a process and will become a way of life – one in which you have more control over your own destiny. Being better prepared will help liberate you from “the system” which in many ways is designed to hold you down and keep you “dependent”. Modern Survival Blog has been committed since JAN-2010 to produce a wide variety of information to hopefully provide you with ideas for your own preparedness.
