About Integrated Skills Group

Thanks for swinging by, Prospective Patrons. Here are a few things you should know before you decide to support ISG via Patreon:

1. We don't release extra content here. We occasionally post exclusive or early content, but if you're expecting truck rants on a daily basis, that isn't us. As a Patron, if you're interested in something specific, you need but ask. That can be privately through instant message or publicly, but unless you mention it, we'll be keeping busy with our 'routine' projects and articles.

2. Patreon is a place for the people who financially support our efforts to have a say in the direction ISG takes. Being a patron is less about throwing money at entertainment, and more about keeping the effort alive while we branch out into more advanced developments. 

3. Our budget goes almost entirely towards keeping our infrastructure alive. That means the hosting and editing software for podcasts, our website, and our efforts to work with craftsmen to develop tools specifically for ISG. We don't collect paychecks from your support, or the profits when we do sell products. Those go directly back into the funds for negotiating new developments.

4. As a Patron, you'll have a say in what content we work on, what products we develop, and you'll get discounted prices and first dibs when they come out. We're committed to bringing the highest quality, not the highest volume. 

We understand this will drive some potential supporters away - that's fine. As we say constantly, we're not here for your money. We're here to be your trusted source of information that's free from clutter and advertisement. If that's something you view as important, join the pack. 


ISG is a community built around adventure, skill development, and disaster management designed to enrich and protect the lives of our members.

Our goal is to pass along lessons combining years of involvement in military, police, security, science, and disaster management, filter it through the lens of common sense, and tailor it to our viewers so they have actionable, relevant, and useful information. 

We recognize that in a world of monetized efforts, corporate sponsorship, and paid endorsements, it’s hard to find a venue that's trustworthy, entertaining, and grounded in a culture of integrity. At ISG, our goal is to be those things without paid product endorsements or cluttering the user experience with advertisements. 

More than that, we hope to be your source for high-quality, actionable information on adventure, skill building, and preparedness. Here, you'll find content generated from years of experience and backed by cited, credible sources. 

We want to build a cultural legacy, not a financial empire. At ISG, we recognize that strength is about resilience of character, working around our weak points, and adaptability. We strive to bring practical skills and philosophy to our community by way of adventure, true sustainability, productivity and involvement. As Rudyard Kipling once wrote, "The strength of the wolf is the pack, and the strength of the pack is the wolf". Our goal is to bring our human 'pack' closer to one another through more cohesive networks and cross training.

More than any of that, we want you to be a part of our community. A community unified by a mutual love of adventure, and desire to be stronger than the challenges we face. 
Our job is to fight learned helplessness.
