Tim MacWelch is the author of the Prepare for Anything Survival Manual and a frequent contributor to Outdoor Life Magazine. His love of the outdoors started at a young age, growing up on a farm in the rolling hills of Virginia. Tim became interested in survival skills and woodcraft as an offshoot of backpacking as a teen—out in remote areas, it seemed like a smart plan to learn some skills. The majority of his training over the years has involved testing survival skills and devising new ones, but the biggest leaps forward occurred as a result of teaching.
Tim founded Earth Connection School of Wilderness Survival over 18 years ago. He has worked with Boy Scouts, youth groups, summer camps, and adults in all walks of life, and provided outdoor skills training for numerous personnel in law enforcement, search and rescue organizations, many branches of the U.S. government. Tim has been featured on Good Morning America and several National Geographic programs, and in many publications including Conde Nast Traveler, the Washington Post, and American Survival Guide.
