We search for people who have gone missing, learn how to survive and explore boldly.

I had a rat in our barn. I got a cat to get rid of the rat. Something then got the cat. Some people idealize living in the country, but the truth is, living a wilderness lifestyle can be difficult and messy, with potential threats coming from unexpected sources.

When I heard people in my own county had gone missing in the wilderness without a trace, I decided to look for some of them. Knowing I likely would never find any of them in the vast forests of Washington states, I at least wanted to look at what might have went wrong, and what others could do to avoid a similar fate. What if talking about this saved a life?

As I looked deeper, I started to come across even more cases that were not in the news, caused by more than just hypothermia, bad planning and other forces of nature. Mental illness and other people are also a significant threat in ways that often come from our blind side.

But knowing the risks doesn't mean one needs to stay inside or walk in constant fear. The goal of Rat and Cat is to arm people with knowledge and skill so we can all enjoy the wilderness and explore boldly.
