Robert started prepping 15 years ago in anticipation of the perceived Y2K crisis. Starting out small with just enough resources to get him and his family through a week of supply disruptions, this quickly turned into a journey, which over the past 15 years has grown into a full time endeavor focusing on urban, shelter in place situations. Robert started the blog www.SurvivalCentral.net 4 years ago which now has grown to be one of the top 10 survival sites according to Top Survival Sites: http://www.topsurvivalsites.com/ and placed 6th for The Reader’s Choice on Top 50 Survival Sites: http://www.survivaltop50.com/readers-choice/. What started as a blog has grown to include SurvivalCentral.ca, its own survival store. With his focus on DIY projects Robert is a featured contributor on Instructables.comhttp://www.instructables.com/id/Chip-Bag-Emergency-Reflective-Blanket/ where he brings fun , practical and unique projects for prepping and survival situations. He is currently writing an Ebook on Recycled Prepping which focuses on projects using recycled items form around the home for prepping and in survival situations. Seeing a need for a community based prepper survival group in the Durham Region, he started The Durham Region Prepper Survival Group this past February. - motto: “Be Prepared, Stay Safe and Survive.” - Organizer of The Durham Region Prepper and Survival Group.
