About Us


Dave in the WoodsI don’t run Dave’s Homestead for money.  I have a full time job that pays my bills.  However, running this website takes an extreme amount of my time, and a good bit of my own resources to make the videos and articles you see here.

In order to keep the site running and to improve the quality of the videos I need to try to recoup some of the money I spend.

To don’t run on donations or subscriptions so I have to have advertisers.  This means I have certain pages I have to have – like advertisements and disclaimers.  The sub pages under the Site related tab is how I do that.  I don’t like donations, as I am a man that can take care of myself.  I am a free market capitalism and don’t have a problem with advertising as I am exchanging value not begging.  You will never see a “go fund me” article on this site, but you may see a “kickstarter” type post.  The difference is – give me some money vs give me some money in exchange for something.

Under this Site related page I link to:

As an experiment in the “Laffer Curve”, as well as to improve the user experience I have severely cut back on my advertisements – especially the affiliate sidebar ads.  This means I need more comments and participation from you to drive the engagement up so those few clicks are worth more.

As always I do the work to keep Dave’s Homestead running in order to serve the prepper community – so please don’t hesitate to let me know what you are thinking.  Use that contact Dave page to email me.  I read every comment personally and try to respond quickly.

    Hi Editor,
    I’m David, a dad, husband, environmentalist and DIY enthusiast from Canada. I enjoy blogging from time to time and it makes me feel amazing when I inspire someone.
    In this day and age, families spend less quality time together than ever before, and this trend is constantly on the rise. This is no news. Also, we are facing a situation where children never have an opportunity to be in touch with nature. They are growing up in a world of technology, alienated from all the wonders of the Wild.
    I believe in the saying: Be the change you want to see in the world, so I have made a deal with my family to spend our weekends in nature. It has turned out to be wonderful.
    The reason I’m writing to you is – I’d love to contribute to your blog with a story. My plan is to write a small guide which would inspire others to do the same as we did, followed with some busting of the most common excuses.
    What do you think guys? Should we give it a go?
    Have a lovely day,
