What’s Modern Survival Blog About?

I’ll be quick (your time is valuable)!

Modern Survival Blog is about Practical Sensible Preparedness with an extent of Self Reliance and Sustainable Living, while maximizing Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness!

My pen name is Ken Jorgustin.

I write near-daily articles of opinion and commentary on a wide variety of topics that you may enjoy, especially if you are into preparedness. 

If I had to boil down all my category topics to their highest level, the short list would probably look like this:

Self Reliance
Self Sufficiency

About me:

I have been though several rewarding careers and have learned a lot about life, and people. I live with my dear wife and our mini-Dachshund, my best bud, ‘Sampson’.

I have a professional background in electronics / electro-mechanical, technical engineering and service, as well as product management. A few recent personal projects include having designed, built and installed a solar off-grid system for my present home. I’ve also recently finished building my garage/barn outbuilding (my back still hurts!). And I consider myself at this point in life to be a sort of ‘Jack of all trades’ (just enough to be dangerous 😉 )

I enjoy lots of experiences in life. Here’s a brainstorm:

Being outdoors, the mountains, exploring, watching wildlife. Building things, improving the homestead. Coaxing the garden to produce. Photographing nature. Reading a good book. Grillin a juicy steak. Going for a walk with the dog. Trips to new places. Shooting firearms. A good movie. Weather watching. Riding the ATV up a mountain. Snowmobiling, snowshoeing, being cozy next to the fire while a blizzard rages outside. And oh, right, I almost forgot… blogging and keeping ModernSurvivalBlog.com online 😉

There’s so much more that I enjoy in life, but the page would get too long.

What I can offer you most, I believe, is a perspective of common sense when it comes to the variety of subjects that I write about.

Thanks for reading this far, and I hope you’ll come back for more!
