Just a little bit about myself

Many new readers have been wondering… just who “Just in Case” Jack really is, where he comes from and why any credence should be paid to his opinions.

Here is some background information to give you a better idea of the kind of man Jack really is, his background and beliefs:

On My Way To The Top Of Mount Saint Helens

Before I share a bit of my background with you, let me just say that I’m a humble man who is more interested in helping my fellow patriots learn a few things about preparedness and survival than spouting off my credentials.

However, since we are soon to be good friends, it’s important for you to know who I am and where I came from.

Starting from the very beginning…

I was born and raised in the heart of the Midwest, where people call soft drinks “pop” and corn fields are aplenty.

My old stomping grounds included public schoolyards and livestock farms, where I was raised to appreciate hard work, long hours and the feeling of accomplishment that comes from it.

I was raised on an Iowa farm where we grew corn, soybeans, cattle, hogs, chickens, and sheep.

It’s where my love for self-sufficiency was born and where my father taught me how to rig, fix, repair, and build just about anything.

After my chore-laden youth was over, it was time to go to off to college to “make something of myself”. 

I enjoyed working with my hands and fixing things, so I packed my bags to study and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2005.

After graduation, I got hired by a food manufacturing company and got put in their “Engineering Management Trainee” program on the condition that I would be willing to move after about a year.

That’s when I got transferred down to Fairburn Georgia and Fairburn is where I got promoted to Maintenance Manager.

As Maintenance Manager, I quickly learned what leadership is all about.

I was ultimately responsible for the success of a team of 39 Mechanics and 3 Team Leaders (most of which were all older than me). I had to earn their respect using both my technical knowledge and my leadership skills.

It wasn’t all cupcakes and rainbows…and I was tested a number of times, but it helped to hone my leadership skills to be able to help others become successful.

While stationed in Georgia, I spent most of my weekends either duck hunting or backpacking. This is also where my love of “all things” survival and prepping began.


My Best Friend and Duck Hunting Partner “Loui”

I was living in Georgia when the “Great Recession” occurred and decided it was time to protect my family. To learn how to prepare for any SHTF worst case scenario.

I joined forces with a couple of work buddies who were experienced survivalists and preppers. This is where I began learning all the skills and knowledge I share with you on this blog.

They taught me everything I know from Guns to Food Stockpiling…from Bugging Out to Firecraft, Water Procurement, and Shelter Building.

I practiced all these skills while backpacking all over the North Georgia Mountains. Most weekends I’d head up North with my wife, my dog, and my backpack and I’d put my skills to the test.

That’s when I got transferred again…this time to Colorado.

As you can imagine Colorado has only increased my love for the outdoors and all things survival. I have been in Colorado now for nearly 5 years now and have no intention of ever leaving. It is where I have decided to take my survival and prepping skills to the next level. 

This is where you come in…by reading my blog you are going to gain all my current and previous survival and prepping skills and also get to watch as I show you all the advanced survival skills I’m currently working on. 

Oh…I almost forgot to tell you..since moving to Colorado I have become a Dad…so now I have even more incentive to take care of my family and keep them safe no matter how screwed up our world becomes. 

To wrapped thing up, I have one more hobby of mine I’d like to share with you…reading historical non-fiction books.

As a patriot, raised by a patriot, I believe it’s important to understand our nation’s history so that we can protect it. I enjoy reading about our founding fathers and those who have followed in their philosophies.

So my admired historical heroes include George Washington, Patrick Henry, Benjamin Franklin and Ronald Reagan

Of course, if you have admired heroes then you must also have a few despised historical villains too: Adolph Hitler, Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin and Mao Tse-tung

Now that you know a little bit about me, I want to formally welcome you to my website and I want to invite you to join the Skilled Survival Nation.

I share a ton of exclusive content with Skilled Survival Nation via email that doesn’t get published on my blog for the world to see.

Why?  Because there are just some things that I only want to share with those truly committed to becoming skilled survivalists.
