About Geared To Survive

Prep. Survive. Thrive.

Gearedtosurvive.com is a platform to discuss a variety of preparedness, survival, self-reliance and personal defense topics for readers who want to protect themselves and their families from any and all possible disasters.

The goal of this website is to help people become more prepared for life’s unexpected twists. Everyone can take steps to be more prepared for natural or man-made disasters regardless of their age or physical ability.

With that in mind, I want to do anything I can to motivate, share and continue to learn along the way. Geared To Survive also provides a platform for others to share their own personal experiences and knowledge about preparedness and survival.

Gearedtosurvive.com is a new name in the conversation about preparedness and survival, but we are garnering a lot of interest via social media. If you would like to be a featured contributor on our site, please send an email to me@gearedtosurvive.com and we can go from there.

Who is Jim Jones of Geared To Survive?

Jim Jones is a pen name I have chosen because I want to keep my identity confidential. I am the editor of Geared To Survive and I began prepping back in 2006, before ever hearing the term "prepping".

For years we have watched scenes of disaster on the news, and have witnessed seamingly normal weather events turn life upside down for those unprepared. Thankfully people have been waking up to the simple truth that bad things happen all the time and when they do, you are your responsible for own survival. Do not leave your family’s safety and survival in the hands of any government agency in a survival situation.
