When I was looking over some of my past prepisodes, I almost couldn’t believe that I haven’t mentioned a couple of my personal favs on BOWM yet.
Fernando “FerFal” Aguirre of The Modern Survivalist, and Selco of SHTF School.
These guys rule.
Why? Because both of them actually LIVED through long term collapse/survival situations. FerFal in Argentina, and Selco in the Balkan. On most blogs and forums, what you get is a lot of ideas. But these guys just tell you straight up what actually happened.
They both have a ton of posts that you can check out. FerFal has a forum and a YouTube channel too, although I have to warn you that many of his videos are VERY long and painfully boring (like some of mine I know…
Selco primarily does written posts, and he also has a paid course component. His English sucks, but his stuff is so good that it really doesn’t take anything away. Plus he has really cool photos on every single blog post.
I’ve exchanged a couple of emails with FerFal, but other than that, I really don’t have any personal connection or relationship with either of these guys. I just find both their stories fascinating, so I thought I’d pass them along!
