SurvivalistBoards YouTube Channel Renamed to RuralPrepper

Kevin Felts political commentator

In April of 2018 the SurvivalistBoards YouTube channel was renamed to RuralPrepper. Some of the viewers were asking why the name changed. So let’s take a few minutes and talk about it.

I have been into survivalism since at least the 1990s. Part of the way I was raised – hunting fishing,gardening… in the 1970s was the foundation for my survivalist plans. Granny had her milk cow, chickens, turkeys, fig tree, pear trees, etc. Dad would take my brother and I fishing and hunting as soon as we were old enough to go.

Dad also usually had some kind of garden planted. I remember one year we had enough purple hull peas to fill the bed of a pick up truck. I kid you not, the bed of a short wheel base chevy truck was full of purple hull peas.

My grandpa usually had a small backyard garden planted. He grew all kinds of stuff from cantaloupes to tomatoes.

Those examples influenced my prepping plans. When I decided to get into prepping as a young man in the 1990s, I had a solid foundation to start with.
