Welcome to The Survival Journal, the premier survival and preparedness resource site for survivalists and preppers.
My name is Bill Steele, and I started The Survival Journal in 2009 with a single mission and goal in mind: to create survival guides and tutorials that not just seasoned preppers would benefit from, but also easy for beginners to understand. Not just how to survive in the wild, but how to financially prepare for the future as well. Something that I wish I had when I was younger and full of confusion with so many conflicting advice and strategies.
Our mission is to restore survival skills and the preparation mindset that men have seem to lost many decades ago
Who is The Survival Journal For?
The Survival Journal started out as a kernel of a resource for those new to preparedness, but I have a big vision for this site. We believe in providing resources and guidance to beginners, even to those who are just “curious” with taking a more proactive approach to seriously preparing for them and their families future survival, financially, physically, and mentally.
