I wanted to mention this class I'll be teaching in CT soon. It's a crash course in long term survival, disaster preparedness, and self-sufficiency, with a bit of afterculture and wilderness skills thrown in. Since it's the Halloween season, we're calling it a Zombie Apocalypse Survival course.
We're all worried about undead hordes driving us from our homes. Just this year the Center for Disease Control suggested that everyone keep an emergency bag ready in case you need to flee the zombies, or, you know, if a hurricane floods out your street.
Emergencies and disasters happen all the time, and they don't all have to be the end of the world as we know it to be the end of your world. Between economic downturns, hurricanes like Irene, tornadoes, earthquakes, and just everyday emergencies like job loss, car accidents and breakdowns, and the occasional undead cannibal, everybody benefits from being prepared. Knowing skills and how to prepare supplies can even save you money, rather than be a financial drain.
Wilderness skills and survival instructor Daniel Quiray has been learning the ins and outs of survival skills and emergency preparation for over a decade, and combines his skills and knowledge of short and long term survival, preparedness, sustainable living, self-sufficiency, and afterculture to create a system that will allow you to live a resilient life and be capable of weathering emergencies up to and including the zombie apocalypse.
