    I passed my Technician and General Amateur Radio exams last weekend, so now I am shopping for my first gear.

  7. Books, Movies & Stories
    I was just wondering if anyone could refer me to a video series like hoods woods? I have been unable to find anything in my searches. Any YouTube channels would be helpful too. But I would prefer something on DVD since I don't have a reliable internet connection in the area of my home.

    Hey everyone! I've been a member of these forums for a while now, lurked plenty, and now I figure it's time I put a little product review out there.

    Re-reading that thread title sounds funny. I'm looking for a good resource to have on hand when SHTF. Anyone know of a book/download of plants and such that may be safe to eat when the time comes? I know it'd be a matter of actually going out and identifying them, so I'm curious on where to...
