My new book “Going Off The Grid” is finally here! This off the grid adventure started 10 years ago when I wanted to get back to a simpler life, such as I had growing up. There were a lot of stops and starts, but I kept at it, and finally made it happen. During the process of my project I noticed a lot of people showing interest in what I was doing, so I started documenting my progress. That is where the idea of my “Going Off The Grid” book came from.
Today a lot of terms are thrown around when it comes to living a simpler or more self-reliant lifestyle, but the word I like to use that encompasses all of them is the term survivalist.
The reason I want to put my own slant on what a survivalist means to me, is because I think the term has been skewed by popular television shows, and by people who call themselves survivalist or preppers, who are really neither.

Jack Spirko: Hi Gary. I’m glad to be here man.
Gary Collins: Yeah, we’re going to be talking about a little bit of permaculture today. I think it’s good for my followers and listeners. Jack has kind of an interesting background as well, as how he got into what he does. And if you could Jack, could you just briefly explain The Survival Podcast and what you do?
