When it comes to survival, Rich Johnson has decades of experience. In the military, he was a paratrooper and demolition sergeant for the US Army Special Forces. In civilian life, he served as a Coast Guard Auxiliary instructor, and was an EMT and a fire fighter for a volunteer fire and ambulance department. In his off hours, he has excelled as an advanced SCUBA diver, a sailor, and a backcountry skier. He specializes in urban survival, emergency preparedness, and primitive living techniques, and spent a year surviving in the desert wilderness with his wife and small children—part of which involved living in a cave and eating bugs (or anything else that moved). He’s written extensively on survival topics for Outdoor Life and is the author of Rich Johnson’s Guide to Wilderness Survival.
