I am very pleased to announce that frequent commenter and sometime contributor John Gault has joined ModernSurvivalOnline as a Contributing Editor. His first post as Contributing Editor is also being publish today. Check it out.

So – who is John Gault? What follows are a few words that should provide some insight:


In March of 2011 my wife and I quit our jobs, cashed in our chips and left the big city behind to move to our farm hidden away in northeast Georgia.

It’s not a single ideology, but many ideas, including a reverence for nature and a preference for country life; a desire for maximum personal self-reliance and self-sufficiency and the nurturing of family and friendships. A belief that the primary rewards for hard work should be well-being, security in all matters and a non-dependence on an outside government and it’s bureaucracies , and a simple life well lived.

Grasp strongly those things you hold dear and shed from your life the complexities of the world around you. Live for your dreams and wake up every morning smiling and thinking “another day in paradise.”
