> TEOTWAWKI Blog: Who am I?



Who am I?

For personal and professional reasons, I plan to maintain a good amount of anonymity as I write this blog. OpSec and all that good stuff.

That said, I feel like I owe it to you, my readers, to have some idea of who I am and at least a pseudonym that you can call me by in e-mails, questions, etc.

So, first off, you can call me Alexander Wolf. Not my real name, but it is a name, and it has some meaning behind it.

Second, some about me:
  • I'm under 30, married, with a toddler-age son. I have an awesome, supportive wife who occasional contributes to T-Blog.
  • We're practicing Mormons (yes, we believe in Christ and no, we're not a cult!). I have not and will not use this blog as a platform for sermonizing or missionary work. We welcome all moral and decent people here at T-Blog--God loves everyone, and I don't want anyone to feel excluded over matters of doctrine. 
  • Politically, I lean closest to the Libertarians and the Austrian School of economic thought. I only delve into politics when they relate to prepping, survival and possibilities for disaster/collapse.
  • I'm currently pursuing an advanced degree. By the late summer, I will be done and working full time. Preps have generally been on the back burner while I've been in school, but we've been able to make some progress thanks to some side projects and T-Blog.
  • My family has so far tended to move around about every 12 to 18 months, which has presented some challenges as far as prepping. That doesn't look to be changing in the near future, so our preps need to be semi-mobile.
  • I am a normal, everyday citizen. I grew up in a suburban, non-outdoorsy, non-gun owning family. No special operations forces, high-speed/low-drag experience here. Good thing I like to learn.
  • For professional reasons, we will probably need to live within ~30 minutes of a big city for the foreseeable future. You'll see that most of my writing reflects this living situation, which is what the majority of us find ourselves in anyways.
  • Right now, we live in the desert Southwest, as you can probably guess by the lack of snow and desert landscape in my pictures.
  • My family has several generations of "preppers," though they've mostly been limited to food and water storage.
  • Nuclear warfare is the TEOTWAWKI scenario that concerns me the most. Even a few warheads could wreak serious havoc, and more and more wackos are going to get their hands on 'em as time progresses. However the cause, I believe that the world as we know it will eventually come to an end, and we don't know when that is going to happen.
  • TEOTWAWKI Blog is, at present, a hobby/side project for me. It would be great if it could be a full-time thing, but we'll have to wait-and-see on that front. I've got some things in the works, but they're in the idea stage at this point.
There you go - a little bit about the TEOTWAWKI Blog family.

I have a lot of fun with this blog and am amazed at the interest and support that I get from ya'll. Thank you. Please keep reading, commenting, share with your friends and enjoy!
