Bill’s Barometer

Capt. William E. Simpson II is a U.S. Merchant Marine Officer with decades of boating and expedition sailing experience, having logged more than 150,000 miles at sea. Capt. Simpson has successfully survived long-term ‘off the grid’ at sea and at remote uninhabited desert islands with his family for years at a time.
In early 2013, Capt. Simpson appeared on National Geographic’s hit TV show DoomsDay Preppers (Season-2 ‘A Fortress At Sea’) and received the highest score ever given for disaster preparedness and survival, earning the title of ‘Best Prepper’. He holds a U.S.C.G. 500-ton captain’s license for commercial-inspected passenger vessels and he is also a commercial airplane and helicopter pilot.
Since retiring, Bill and Laura have changed lifestyles and are once again engaged in a new adventure; living an off-grid lifestyle in the remote wilderness of the Siskiyou Mountains, where they enjoy coexisting with herds of wild horses, along with a myriad of other unique and amazing wild animals. The staggering beauty of the local mountains and valleys is awe inspiring and has influenced Bill to frequently write on subjects related to wild horses as well as wild and domestic horse advocacy, rescue and sanctuary.
Bill has two rules that he lives by;
Rule One: Don’t Get Dead!
Rule Two: Don’t engage in any activity that will result in the violation of Rule One!
