9781479315772: A Survival Story: Part I

Welcome to A Survival Story. What follows is a fictional daily journal written by "Jed". Jed is a 39-year-old man who lives in the small city of Rock Hill, South Carolina. Jed recently started thinking about his life and the mistakes he has made. He has decided to start keeping a journal to organize his thoughts and try to understand not only where he has been but where his life is going. Jed begins this journal at a time in his life when he is considering whether he will ever meet "the one" and has just scheduled a trip to attend his 20-year high school reunion. Jed is relatively physically fit as he has been working out with weights, takes martial arts, and rides his mountain bike periodically on some light trails. He would like to lose about 15-20 pounds but is not overly concerned about it. Jed is 5' 10" tall and 205 pounds with very short brown hair. Both his parents have passed and his younger brother Eric moved in with him a couple months ago. Jed has always felt the need to care for his brother since his parents are no longer around. He has been an active survivalist for the last several years - especially since 9/11. He has stocked up on a lot of supplies with an emphasis on the basics of "beans, bullets, and band-aids". The few people that know of Jed's concern for the future dismiss his "prepping" as a hobby and a fad. Jed takes it seriously, however, he is not fanatical about it and enjoy's many of life's comforts like anyone else. Jed recently purchased a 2011 black Jeep Wrangler 4-door - a rare splurge for himself. He hopes within the next decade to purchase several acres of land in the country and develop a small homestead. Until then.....he continues to work, stock away survival supplies, develop his small parcel of land, and hopes to have a family. Jed is one of the good guys. He is patriotic and remembers growing up saying the pledge of allegiance and a prayer before lunch in school. He does not do drugs and drinks rarely. He judges people not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. Politically he is Conservative but feels the most all politicians are crooks and dishonest. Jed is a Christian and believes in God but has never found a church that he felt comfortable in. He wants to change that. In many ways, Jed is just an average guy who will find himself in a very unique and challenging situation. Here we begin....... a survival story.

About the Author:

I'm 47, living in South Carolina with my wife, two boys, and two Siberian huskies. Working full time in a polymer manufacturing plants I am very active part time on the Internet blogging and spreading the word of preparedness. I enjoy kayaking, shooting, gardening, and anything that involves spending time outdoors.   
Society today has evolved into something totally absurd and truly dangerous. Most care more about reality TV, celebrity gossip, and what their friends and family think of them rather than living a truly fulfilled life. I work to promote my life philosophy and hope that readers will take heed and make positive changes on their own.
Rourke maintains several websites including 1776PatriotUSA.com and FreePrepperEbooks.
