Hello, I am Tobias, a geek prepper, and the owner of GeekPrepper.com.
Here you will find a host of prepping and survival related topics written by experts that specialize in specific areas of prepping and survival.
The information we provide is data driven and fact based, and void of fear driven, irrational thought. Geeks are smart, prepping is smart, so we prepare smart.
Now a little about me. I grew up in rural Iowa where self sufficiency and independence come second nature. I have learned much about wilderness survival and prepping from my family and community.
My father is from a third generation farming family and became an educator, and my mother is from a family of builders, handymen, and craftsman.
You’ll often find me in a canoe or kayak,hiking, camping, biking, doing martial arts or other fitness, doing handy work and repairs, and shooting.
I grew up surrounded by the Amish, and watching Buckskinners, and hunters who have furthered my self sufficiency and survival knowledge.
My most recent influence has been working with the Amish, who are true preppers and survivalists. They live off the grid and are largely self sufficient.
Most of us have been pulled away and from our old ways of life by the lure of modern conveniences, and there are seemingly more barriers to living simply, off the land.
While I’ve built a career working with the Amish selling furniture, I operate web businesses and am a computer geek. My aim with GeekPrepper.com is to share what I have learned about prepping and survival, while hopefully learning a new thing or two myself
My preparedness and SHTF philosophy is to hope for the best and plan for the worst. I prefer not to live in fear of what may or may not come, but to simply enjoy being outdoors, being self sufficient, being aware of the political and economic climate, and having SHTF preparedness be a resulting benefit.
We’d love to hear from you. Your input, comments, thoughts and criticisms are always welcome.
I look forward to hearing from you.
