Jason Ryder Adams is the author of three books on survival prepping.
"Survival preppers are no longer weird nutcases living outside of society," says Jason.
"We're normal people. We're your friends, your co-workers, and your neighbors. It's just that we're concerned for ourselves and for our families, and want to make sure that we're prepared no matter what the world throws at us."
Jason emphasizes a practical, down-to-earth approach to prepping.
"Let's face it, most people don't prep, and those that want to prep are overwhelmed by all the details involved. You start talking to someone new to prepping, and once you start in on the details, you see their eyes start to glaze over and their mouth drops and their face goes blank. It's just too overwhelming to the new prepper."
"I try to break down prepping into simple steps, and make it as easy as possible for the new prepper to get started. After all, a little prepping is better than no prepping. And once people take those first few steps, they'll soon see that prepping isn't all that hard. And it will give them the confidence to go from being a little prepared to being fully prepared."
"If I had only one wish for you and for all of my readers, it's that they NEVER have to use what I write about. But these days, with everything going on in the world, I don't think that will happen. All of us are likely to face some sort of disaster at some point - whether it's natural or man-made. So I want you to be ready when it happens."
"Thank you as always for taking the time to read my books. I wish you and your family a healthy, happy, safe life."
