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.
