Welcome to Alpine Survival.
I am Mark, your humble proprietor. I know you could be reading blogs anywhere so I appreciate that you are at mine.

As a boy and later, as a teenager, I am lucky my dad introduced me to the scouts. He was an Eagle scout as was my grandfather, so it was a big deal for me to follow in their footsteps. For me, not just to them. And I loved it and I feel it shaped me as a person.
To whatever degree you see the importance of protecting your family and your way of life, however, you see the world and the evolution of what’s happening with governments, I think we all agree (those of us who are on this site I believe) that having backup plans is essential and that those of us who are prepared, will have the best chances in major crisis situations.
