When I was 16 years old (back in 1999), all my high school friends played Fallout and Fallout 2 games. All they were talking about were consecutive quests in the games, random encounters, and stuff they found.
When I started playing, I sunk in the game for a very, verylong time. Now I’m almost 31 and still play those two old games from time to time. I must say that it’s the Fallouts’ story that got me interested in surviving the apocalypse.
But back then, as a teenager, I didn’t think about how I could survive the apocalypse, and how I should start preparing for it.
Some time later I found a book called “Nuclear War Survival Skills”. The idea to build your own nuclear fallout shelter in your backyard really got to me. Especially that the book also mentiones some basic preparedness — like having stored food and water.
And finally, in 2009 a friend of mine told me about The Survival Podcast by Jack Spirko. I started downloading consecutive episodes and listening to it in my free time.
In 2010 my friend and I started Domowy Survival, a Polish blog about modern survivalism and preparedness. It was focused on what we can and should do to prepare ourselves in Poland for floods, power outages, and other TEOTWAWKI events.
And now, in 2014, we’re starting this blog in English. We believe there are some important and interesting things we can add to the preppers’ community.
