    I pretty much quit going to the doctor back in the 90's. I've always been fairly healthy, but when I hit 40, I noticed I was bouncing back a little slower than I had been only ten years ago. Last weekend my buddy's wife turned 40 and it took me until Tuesday to fully recover from that bash...

    So I'm in the library-building phase. So, please give me your thoughts on the best books for a SHTF library. With the following assumptions: 1. Physical books only, made of paper. 2. No religious texts: the ones that matter to me I already have, and that's probably true for anyone else who...

    Not sure if this has been linked to before but a buddy sent it to me and I found a lot of the files to be rather helpful. If this has been posted before, I apologize, but I did a search and couldn't find it (I will admit it wasn't the most through of searches)...

    If you have friends or family members who are not into prepping (but should be) or are just getting started, give them this Emergency Prepareness Guide (PDF) published by LA Fire Dept/CERT. It is straight forward, thorough and non-threatening - perfect for those who are sceptics.

    not for entertainment but for knowledge in prepping and/or PSHTF, living as much off the grid as you can? I just finished reading "When All Hell Breaks Loose" and I'm currently reading "The Encyclopedia of Country Living". Thanks for any and all suggestions. Suzanne

    Have you given thought to the value of a real nice stocked library in the event of eowawki. Not only to educate the young but to rebuild. Those with technical skill sets will be in demand but to educate next generation in these expertises with text books would be a God send.

    I have a nice notebook I'm thinking about starting a few practical survival articles on topics I know I'd need refreshing in when the SHTF. I'll be honest, I use this website any time I have a chance and have a question about anything related to the outdoors, survival, preparing, etc. But when...
