Someone asked me how I did the research for the survivalist factor of After the Silence. I don’t think I could research everything that happens in ATS.
My knowledge and experience have never been taken to the extreme’s that Bree went through, but I did grow up on a farm—where we did many things the old (hard)way.
My father was a hunter / trapper when I was growing up as well. Although my own opinion is much like Bree’s in the beginning.
I’ve also done the ‘roughing it’ type of camping many times. (Now with age I’ve graduated to ‘cabining’ as too many things clunk at the very thought of sleeping on a cold damn ground.)
Could you survive out in the wild without electricity and modern cheats?
I know I have the knowledge to do it, but really hope I never have to find out!
Thanks for having me here today!
