Survival Showdown Mindset Challenge | EP 01

Let's start 2021 off right with the first episode of a new concept. 

Big thanks to Tier III Patrons, Adam Banks and "Call me Colonel" (Tim) for stepping up and going head to head in the first challenge.

I also want to throw a thank you to Nutrient Survival for sponsoring this first episode and providing an awesome prize. Check them out to prep long term food storage.

A virus has ravaged the country for the previous year. Following one of the most controversial elections in history, a vaccine is quickly introduced and will be mandatory via the government.

The idea behind this exercise is to get your mind working to cover multiple bases quickly and be able to automatically apply this information if/when necessary.

We'll be doing more of these throughout the year and are excited to get more Patrons involved.

Buckle up!
