Dear Aware and Prepared Friend:

My name is David & you might remember me from Regaining Privacy Online. I'm writing to you because I've released a system that will help you identify and repair the vulnerabilities in your current survival plan and get even the least prepared family member ready for local, regional, or national disasters in a few short lessons.

I'm keeping this note short, so please read it now.

Here's what's happening: With the threats of terrorist attack, natural disaster, economic collapse, or a pandemic, you need to have a survival plan in place quickly that is inexpensive and doesn't depend on relocating or you being around as a leader.

We're living in crazy times and...

The Unprepared
May Not Make It.

Honestly, I don't know who's in worse shape, people in denial, or preppers who have lots of supplies and training, but their plan is just floating around in their head and isn't based on reality.

But here's the thing. Six months ago, I had lots of training and supplies but a crappy plan in my head that had no chance of working in the real world. I worried EVERY TIME I went out of town that "it" would happen when I wasn't at home to protect my family. I found out that I wasn't alone. As I talked to other people about their plans, they ALL depend on everyone being home when "it" happens. They depend on perfect timing, easy travel, and just don't have a chance of working in a real disaster.

Most Survival Plans Are A Joke.

There are a TON of survival books, websites, and "experts" out there that have terrific information, but people make the mistake of thinking that reading a book means you've got a workable plan. In addition, all of them miss one of the seven key factors for helping you create the perfect survival plan.

The Perfect Survival Plan should be....

Cheap...Survival is NOT a luxury reserved for the rich.
Fast To Start Putting Into Place Without a Ton Of Required Training/Classes/Supplies.
Compatible with Your Current Living Situation.
Easily Usable By Your Family If You Can't Lead Them.
Adaptable In Case You Miss Your Window To Relocate
Sustainable If The Emergency Is Long Term
Reversible If You Jump The Gun.
Written Down, So You Aren't Relying On Memory When You're Operating Under Stress and Without Sleep.

Does this sound right to you?
How is your current survival plan stacking up?

Plus, your survival plan should work in real life situations, including:

You're 1,000 miles away on a business trip when "it" happens.
Your kids are on a school trip when it's time to bug out.
Traveling by car is not an option.
One of your family is injured and can't travel.
You have a baby or have to take care of an elderly parent when "it" happens.
The emergency build-up is gradual and there's no clear signal.

This is one of the ugly realities of our situation today...

Most families won't leave urban areas in time because
they can't afford leaving early and being wrong.

Why? Because it means abandoning your house, friends, job, and sometimes even family.

If you leave and you are too early, can you get your job back?
(Be thankful you didn't bug-out in April 2009 for the Flu "Pandemic")

If you leave too early & can't pay your mortgage, will your bank understand?

If you leave too early, can't you hear the laughter of your friends when you come back 1, 2, or 3 months later?

But if you try to leave too late, you may have to travel light or not be able to travel at all:

What I learned is how simple it is to fix even the worst of plans, or create one from scratch. Out of necessity, I got in touch with my military, Survival Evasion Resistance & Escape (SERE), Law Enforcement/SWAT, "private contractor", and Pentagon friends, as well as a geneticist who specializes in viruses/pandemics and a bio-weapons expert to pick their brains about their survival plans and to get help fixing mine.

The insider knowledge they shared with me was AWESOME! I didn't need half of the stuff I had, and the things I was missing were inexpensive and useful regardless of whether or not I ever actually had to survive a disaster.

To top it off, I'd been confusing "survival" with "primitive living", which are two completely different skill sets. I pity the fool who decides to grind wheat and bake bread 21 days into an urban survival situation. That smell will draw the "zombies" in from blocks away and hunger will be the least of his problems!

The biggest part that they helped me with wasn't "stuff". Most of them thought that fancy survival "stuff" was just a crutch to compensate for a lack of a solid plan. I realized they were right. Don't you agree?

They showed me how to ruthlessly go through my plan, find the vulnerabilities, and fix them through proper planning rather than by throwing money at the problem. I ended up with a survival plan that was flexible enough to allow for reality and stable enough that my wife could take charge if I was unable to lead our family.

If you're wondering why I am willing to share this system with you, here's the story:

First, As I was going through this process and talking with my civilian friends, they kept "bugging" me to pick my brain on creating THEIR survival plan. I was the only person they knew who'd gone through the trouble to contact so many experts and create my own logical written survival plan. I was getting 10-20 emails and calls EVERY DAY on this. I've got to work to put food on the table and it got to where I couldn't keep being everyone's survival research department. I quickly realized that I was either going to have to put together a training system to help them or stop answering my phone and email.

Second, I'll be honest with you. I'm looking out for myself, my friends, and my family. It sounds a little selfish, but you see, if/when there is a catastrophic event, YOU are either going to be part of the solution or part of the problem. I'd much rather you follow my program and be an asset to my friends and family than a looter that they have to defend themselves against.

So, after months of brainstorming, interviews, masterminding, and testing, I've developed a killer system that you're going to love...

With it,

You Can Sleep Soundly With The Knowledge
That Disaster Won't Blindside Your Family...

The process that you will go through will be the exact same process that I went through and that I give to my friends and family to get them ready for emergencies. Every step has been created with the help of one or more survival experts and is being constantly reviewed by even more.

Here's What YOU Get Inside

"You will have my simple step-by-step system
and expert guidance necessary to create a written
survival plan that will stand up to harsh reality.

Every week for the next 3 months (12 weeks) you'll receive an email with a special download link for that week's step-by-step lesson. In addition to the written lesson, many weeks will include audio interviews and/or videos. Included in the lesson is a skill drill for you to complete so you'll make progress every week.

On the days between the weekly lesson, I'll send out occasional communications with encouragement, reminders, answers to common questions, and ways to fine tune the lesson for the week.

Here's a sampling of some of the areas that you'll master over the next 12 weeks:

Why your survival depends on your mindset more than your skill set & how to train your mind to become your most valuable survival tool.
How to build a team of like-minded people without compromising operational security. The last thing you want to do is advertise your preparations to your neighbors and make yourself a target.
Easy to learn techniques for navigating the urban jungle after a disaster...even if you start out 12 miles from home in the middle of blown out buildings in high heels or flip flops.
How to reunite your family, even if you start in multiple locations, your phones are down, & your primary meeting point is destroyed & hazardous.
How to force your body & your family to react with stunning speed to threats while everyone around is paralyzed with fear.
Shortcut life-saving medical secrets you can use on yourself and your family, when seconds count and medical professionals are nowhere to be found.
How to know the parts of your city that pose a chemical or biological threat to you on a daily basis, how to prepare for it, and still sleep at night.
Many people who were prepared and survived Katrina in place reported experiencing survivors' guilt within 5-7 days. Learn how to avoid this crippling condition and keep your mind sharp in times of crisis.
How to stay "invisible in plain sight" to protect yourself from burglaries now and mobs of hungry looters in the future.
Learn to "smell" danger in your neighborhood so you've got precious extra seconds to react.
Get inside the mind of an angry mob of parents with hungry children so your family is the last one to be attacked and looted.
Gain the peace of mind that comes with KNOWING that your family has a plan to follow if you're away from home or "out of action" when disaster strikes.
How to quickly & cheaply fortify your home to protect it from forcible entry & armed attack, without looking like the neighborhood kook or advertising yourself as a target.

Most of all, my system is designed so that if the world doesn't go to hell, you won't look back on your life and feel that you wasted your time and money worrying needlessly.

First, we'll show you why worrying is stupid, useless, and a waste of energy, especially in a survival situation.

Second, The strategies and techniques that you learn will enrich your relationships and be useful every day, regardless of what happens with the rest of the world.

Instead of simply publishing this information in some e-book or quick coaching program, I'm making it available to you week after week in action-sized portions so you'll actually get results.

You don't need another book where the author "wows" you with their skills and preparations. What you need is a practical weekly "here's what you do next" action step to complete. What you need is for someone to show you how to quickly get started and then keep teaching you week after week so you don't get stalled along the way.

And that's exactly what I'm going to do when you join SurviveInPlace.

As a member you'll receive ...

  1. Your post is very helpful, thank you. Learning of urban survival skills is a matter of life and death; perhaps, being street smart, described as someone intelligent and with good common sense, is good to possess if you are someone who wants to know how to deal with bad situations and act in the way to survival.

  3. Survival situations can occur just about anywhere. Contrary to what most of us think, survival is not limited to getting through rough outdoor situations. You can be stranded a thousand miles from civilization in the most hostile desert, left floundering in the open sea, or simply just struggling to survive in your own attic, and the only thing that is going to help you overcome the threat to your life is having the necessary skills and the necessary tools. the lost ways claude davis
