Greetings! I just began writing as the Survival Skills Topic Guide for About.com. I’ll be posting new articles each week on the site, www.survival.about.com, and I’ll also write related posts here, on “Down and Out,” in addition to posting other writings about all of the ongoing nature/adventure/great outdoors fun.
Category topics on the About.com Survival Skills site include: survival basics, wilderness first aid, tools & gear, rescue skills & techniques, weather, climate & terrain, navigation…and everything else survival-related. On the About.com Survival Skills site, I’ll write interviews with real-life survivors to share their stories, and I’ll be featuring scenarios that take readers step-by-step through survival challenges and offer tips about how to overcome them.
You can click the “follow” button on this site if you’d like to be alerted to new “Down and Out” blog posts, but be sure to check out the About.com Survival Skills site if you want the in-depth, latest-greatest survival skills news!
