President of Pioneer Productions LLC and Prepare2Endure.com
My preparations started with firearms and firearm training for concealed carry and personal protection. Kern County is a very unique place to live in California in that Sheriff Donnie Youngblood displays his passion for the 2nd amendment by issuing more CCWs in his county that all of California combined. Although we still have our share of crime, home invasions are down and Id certainly think twice if I was going to commit a weapons-based crime in Bakersfield.
With that foundation, my preps evolved to food, water, fuel, alternative energy, survival gear, and a bug out location. I built a bug-out-bag, a bug-in bag, and most importantly, constructed an emergency plan with my immediate family and close relatives. I was mentored by two people along this journey. One is my father, a proud decorated wounded veteran, and another is my friend Ryan. My dad instilled a mindset of preparedness in us from young ages, but he made it fun, so we really didnt know any better. Later in life, Ryan, a fellow God-fearing man, had shared his preparations with me which encouraged me to step up my preps in certain areas.
My brother Daron and I started this company in effort to empower people to become more prepared and thus, an overall stronger community, state, & nation. I hope that our show is the catalyst that encourages families to become more prepared by planning for disaster while learning new skills to sustain them during times of instability & transition.
Preparing for the worst, doesnt have to be hard. Take it step by step. Set goals & achieve milestones, but respect the boundaries you inevitably have to set for yourself. The one thing I realized is that I didnt have to go it alone, nor could I do it all at once. The P2E Emergency Preparedness Expo was designed to help new and experienced preppers alike progress according to their own pace. We feel this is the perfect time to launch, and appreciate all the positive feedback & support weve received from good people across this great country. God bless you, your family, & this great nation.
Daron Payne bio:
Vice President of Pioneer Productions, Darons path toward prepping started on September 11th. Like so many others, it took this tragic event to shake him from his complacency. At that point he realized our lives and our safety are not guaranteed and that the only person you can absolutely depend on to be there during an emergency is yourself.
Followed by countless hurricanes and earthquakes across the globe, it was made clear that our world is an unpredictable and sometimes dangerous place.
With the support of his wife to prepare for disasters, theyve both been taking small steps to store extra food, water and supplies for whatever may come their way.
