I was asked to create these pages for a private site. Quite a bit of research went into these pages so I decided to provide the information on these pages to a wider audience.

Canuck In Denver


Welcome to my Community Page!

Look around if you want, or not as the case may be, and find out a bit about me and how came into being. From a small site to what it is today it is all part of my master plan, or is that master disaster, to have a good emergency preparedness site and give a little something back to all those sites that have come and gone over the years. I think it is a great site, but then again I'm responsible for it's creation so I'm biased.

Within these pages you will learn a little about me, about, about my Blog and my Blog articles, and anything else I can think of to put up here, like the Emergency Preparedness and Survival Basics on the side menu to get you started on the journey of survivalism and emergency preparedness. The Emergency Preparedness and Survival Basics series has become an ebook, click on the links on the side menu to learn more or to download the PDF file directly.

I've been interested in survival since I was a kid growing up in the country. Surrounded by farms, trees, streams and all those things that made my boyhood fun... and dangerous. I've gotten caught in snap blizzards with zero visibility as a kid, obviously I lived to talk about it. I went hiking and camping with my friends and with my Wolf Cub pack when I was a kid. When I was older I went hiking and camping with my friends and with the Wolf Cub and Scout troop I was a leader of. I taught my Wolf Cubs and Scouts about survival and went beyond what was covered in the Scouts Canada manuals.

I've been on the survival newsgroups since 1996, as Canuck In Denver since 2000. I've visited hundreds of survival and emergency preparedness websites over the years. Many have come and gone during those years, but a few good ones have remained through it all. Every website has it's own feel and character, I think is unique in that it offers anyone the chance to have a Blog or Community Page and is more of a community in that respect.

I guess you could say that I've been a survivalist for as long as I can remember. As a kid I always had a pocket knife, lighter, extra clothes and some food and water with me when I went anywhere. I knew how to build a fire, make a fishing pole and hooks and catch some fish to eat if worst came to worst, did I mention I HATE fish unless it is "Fish 'N Chips"? Part of the reason I always carried some gear was that with the exception of school I was as far away from my house as I could get, and living in the country that could mean trouble. We built shelters and all those things you need to live fairly comfortably in the wilderness, it was just what we did. Later in life once I had a car I always had some food, water, extra clothes, tools and spare parts for the car in the trunk. I became pretty good at working on my car. I developed more survival related skills when I spent time in the Society for Creative Anachronism and did medieval recreation for about 10 years... "primitive" camping with medieval technology taught me a few things.
