Welcome to the Wild Side

Welcome to Survival Gear Outpost, your new digital campfire and rendezvous point for the rugged adventurers, the tireless preppers, and the homesteading heroes of today. Born from the ashes of a once-thriving early 2000s survival forum, we’re back—not just to revive a website, but to spearhead a revolution in outdoor digital journalism.

Meet Your Trail Guide: Blair Witkowski

I’m Blair Witkowski, your guide and fellow truth-seeker in this journey through the wilds. You might know me from Tech Writer EDC, where I’ve carved out a reputation for no-nonsense gear reviews and incisive commentary on everything Everyday Carry. With Survival Gear Outpost, we’re scaling new heights, bringing on board a passionate team ready to cover the spectrum from backpacking to bushcraft.

Cutting Through the Underbrush

Here’s the deal: the internet is a jungle of affiliate links and sponsored content. At Survival Gear Outpost, we cut through the underbrush with the sharp edge of honesty. We’re not here to push products or pad pockets; we’re here to share real stories, review gear with integrity, and offer you the unfiltered truth about the tools you need to thrive in the wild.

Mission: Truth in the Great Outdoors

Our mission is bold and straightforward: to deliver a fresh, uncompromising perspective on the outdoor lifestyle. We’ll tackle the hard questions about gear, explore the politics of survival, and expose how big tech and government often leave the everyday citizen out in the cold. At Survival Gear Outpost, we believe in living the EDC dream with eyes wide open and a compass firmly set on truth.
