Air Force Commander details his Zombie Survival Plan –http://www.10news.com/news/military/dyess-air-force-base-bomb-wing-commander-shares-anti-zombie-response-plan09092013

An Insight:
RedBeard says he is most like Datu. Note that he admires John Cohn from the first season of the Discovery Channel show The Colony (U.S. version). John Cohn would be best described as a mad scientist version of Datu. The Colony is available on Amazon prime for free.

Preparedness vs Reaction

Being prepared and reacting are two separate things. Preparedness is what resources, training and the mindset you have. Reaction is how you respond to a situation. You may be saying to yourself those are directly related and not necessarily something that can be compared. Just as an example everyone has either met or heard of that guy who has every tool known to man without a clue when it comes to using them or at least using them correctly. Point is that when comes to being prepared and reacting you can’t have one in its fullest capacity without the other.

Imagine yourself  having wrecked while driving down the road with friends or loved ones in the vehicle. What is your initial reaction? You see two people injured, who do you help first? If that’s not enough of a stressful situation, if you haven’t had first aid training in a while or not at all you are probably not going to do anyone any good and you may hinder the situation.

If you haven’t trained or practiced in a while, well you know that statement like riding a bicycle? It is never that easy not even with a bicycle. There can’t be enough emphasis on training and practice. With training and practice in place it will be much easier to make those critical quick mental notes and assessments while remaining calm which is the key to dealing with any situation.

In conclusion, you can’t just buy preparedness. Be prepared, be trained and be practiced.

What is Dared to Survive

The show is currently in pre-production and we hope to have an episode soon.

What is Dared to Survive?

MickGinger & MrRedBeard on the OT
MickGinger & MrRedBeard on the OT

This is an almost comical web show on Urban and Wilderness Survival, where we take your survival dares and put them to the test. We’re going to go out and probably do it wrong and both learn from it and improve on our techniques. We’re going to show you that you can’t always trust what you see on TV and that it isn’t as easy as it looks. Along the way we will take dares and/or suggestions from viewers and perform them on camera for you.
