About Survival Information on Simple Survival

This site was started, almost 10 years ago, to furnish survival information to hunters, campers, hiker, fishers, and others who love nature and spend time outdoors. We supply the information for free, unless you purchase a book, and you'll never be charged for this information. As a public service, we have spent years writing these articles, doing artwork, and keeping the site updated.

Our primary goal is to educate all who love the wonderful gift of nature, which God has given us.

Gary Benton, SMSgt, USAF, Retired
