Ryan Dotson-I am a survivalist, prepper, writer, and photographer.  I grew up in the Ozark Mountains and in the foothills of the Pocono Mountains.  My interest in survival started when I was in Boy Scouts and continued as my father, uncle, and grandfather taught me to hunt and fish.  In the last few years I have started taking on survival challenges and have started writing about my experiences. I currently live in Mid-Missouri with my wife Lauren and three year old son Andrew
