This week on the 7 P’s Of Survival we will have Tyler Anderson back on the show and we will be talking all things Caving. Tyler will walk you through where to start on your caving journey as far as equipment, training, packing, guides, clubs, rescue and much more. To start the night off we will talk about basic skills and equipment to practice and develop before you decide you want to take the plunge into caving (if you are into mountaineering then you will have most of the gear you will need) . Tyler and I both come from a technical rescue background and got stated into caving through high angle rescue with or respective fire and EMS agencies. We will give you a basic set of equipment that can serve you in your recreational climbing, caving, rope rescue, mountaineering, and even swift water adventures. We will then expand that equipment list onto things that you might want to consider as you dig deeper into exploring various climbing adventures. Be sure to check out the Mountaineering section of our store for all your adventure sport needs.

Once you have the basic kit items in hand we will talk about what skills you are going to need to practice/develop/hone before you think about going into any cave. These skills involve everything from basic knots to working in a harness to climbing a rope, dealing with confined spaces, swimming underground and much more. We will talk about schools to attend to develop these skills and places you can go to practice that might be a little innovative. Additionally, we will talk about a few groups you need to join if you are going to start caving as their resources are beyond reproach and have more local knowledge that you simply can’t find on the internet.

We will close out the evening talking about adventures to try (I really want to do a cave with an underground river), what to avoid and generally how to go down the rabbit’s hole (literally and figuratively) of getting deeper and deeper into mountaineering, caving, climbing, etc. Fair warning once these sports get their hooks into you it’s expensive and will be how you want to spend all of your free time! We will also talk about some cave rescues and just how dangerous this adventure sport is so that you have a clear picture what this adventure sport entails. We hope to see you in chat and hear from you on the air with all the questions you may have about recreational climbing and mountaineering!

About The 7 P’s Of Survival show!
Join Josh of the 7 P’s Survival Blog in the studio every Tuesday night at 9pm Eastern Time. This is a live show where you can interact and engage with Josh and His guests (Josh often invites his friends from the preparedness community to dig into pertinent topics). You can interact via chat room or by calling into the show (we would love to hear from you!). Each week regardless of whether there is a guest for the show Josh will dig into current events and legal issues which relate to preparedness, update you on what is going on with his blog/survival school and review the happenings of various survival related television programming.

Josh runs the 7p’s Survival Blog, JPS Consulting LLC (Oil & Gas Law, Business Strategy, Emergency Response, Etc.), A Survival School (Coming fall of 2015) and is working on his first survival related book (he has published several books on incident command and legal issues for emergency response agencies). Josh has worked in emergency response since 1999 serving as a fire chief and a variety of other capacities throughout his career. Josh holds a Doctor of Juris Prudence degree from the West Virginia University College of Law along with a BSBAd’s in Marketing and Management from West Virginia University College of Business and Economics. He also holds hundreds of emergency response related certifications many at the national level. He has taught at a wide variety of emergency response conferences and for various state and federal agencies mostly in the area of incident management, technical rescue and hazardous materials mitigation.

This show will explore a wide variety of topics including: legal issues in preparedness, wilderness skills (including a weekly skill challenge- A youtube video will be shared each week demonstrating a skill for listeners to review and post their responses), self reliant skills, gear reviews and interviews with manufactures, current events, Q & A with fellow bloggers and YouTuber’s, emergency response and disaster preparedness and recovery.

So what are the 7 P’s? The 7 P’s concept is derived from the military and emergency response where the pneumonic stands for the following: Prior, Proper, Planning, Prevents, Piss, Poor, Performance. This old adage stuck with Josh since his early days in the fire service and resonated with him so much it became his approach to preparedness and wilderness survival right along with his emergency response career.
