Website Review 001: Survivalist Prepper

survival prepareTactical Catholic’s Review of Survivalist Prepper


I have followed Dale and Lisa at Survivalist Prepper for some time now.  In fact, I am pretty sure I found their podcast before I found their website.  They’ve been at this for a while and have a large following both for their site and for their podcast.  Dale recently launched a live video show SPTV as part of the Apoco-List community on Google Plus that is worth checking out.

Survivalist Prepper is all about practical ways you and I can prepare for emergencies BEFORE they happen.  Every week, Dale and Lisa share from their own experiences as well as persons in their network of friends.  They are NOT the sort of crackpots you typically see labeled as survivalists.  In fact, I like to think that in most ways they are a lot like me.  No need to panic or dive into conspiracy theories.  Just take time to prepare yourself and your loved ones in the event of a disaster, be it a small thing like an accident injury or a large event like a flash flood.  Dale and Lisa write from a balanced perspective with a healthy dose of humor.

As I’ve been following this site for some time I can tell you that they cover pretty much any topic.  Nothing is off limits.  So, you should have no problem searching their site for helpful tips and tricks you can use.  The search feature is prominently displayed at the top of any page so you can quickly look for what you want.

The layout of the page has continued to improve.  Using a responsive design, Survivalist Prepper shows up good on a PC, a tablet, or a mobile device.  The nav menu is a cinch to use, and all of their social networks are plainly displayed as icons at the top of the page.  Navigation and information finding is super easy, and I’ve already told you how much I like the content.

Another thing I like about Survivalist Prepper is that they do a lot of legwork for me.  By that I mean that their network of friends and their research enables them to post summaries and links to articles from all over the web that I might find interesting.  While not an aggregate site, I know that as I read through the pages, I’ll find links to other good content elsewhere without having to do a lot of searching on my own.  Heck, they have their own gear store where you can buy the equipment they review!  I can say this too because I feel like I know them.  They are not going to sell you something unless they would use it themselves.

In conclusion, you should check this site out.  Guys, Dale is the kind of guy you’d benefit from knowing.  Lisa is also a genius when it comes to medicine and first aid.  The content is superb and the site is clean and efficient.  Bookmark Survivalist Prepper and visit often.  Consider subscribing to the podcast like me and we can talk about the show sometime.
