@ Solarskye: Thanks for the link!
@ angryamerican: The sites I was referring to was the ones that come up as results in google and are nothing more than stores...just about every site
now has to have links and advertisements just to pay for the bandwidth. But I have noticed now that anytime I do a google search for anything
(generating electricity, storing/growing food, etc) I get so many results to sort through that are nothing more than someone trying to sell
I would help compile a list of stuff to list for a sticky (links to posts, short summeries, etc) but my knowledge of "survival" consists of Boy
Scouts and living in the sticks where I do now and is limited since I rarely ever leave the house, much less ever leave my neck of the woods. I also
wouldn't know what exactly to list since to everyone "survival" aspects mean very different things.
IMHO, "situation X" can be a number of things that would happen, but I would fall more towards preparing for events where you have to have your own
food/supplies. I have been trying to compile a list of stuff that I will ever need, and making lists of food to dehydrate. I think having a guide
you could post about plants would be good, but I am paranoid and think waaaay too much...what if it gets wet? Laminated sheets with pictures and
descriptions would be good, and since I know how to work with photoshop I could compile something...and probably will. I just have to add it to the
loooooong list of stuff to do that I never get to...but it will probably get done before anything else since I find it to be more important than
programming right now. The problem is that making a guide for every plant type in the North American Union would take years, so I will probably just
do one for my area but it would not benefit someone from say Washington state...thoughts on this anyone?
Perhaps a laminated guide on tent making would be good...one on cooking wild game...the list could go on. But I am just one person and even though I
work at home, I don't have a lot of time to invest. But okay, if there were guides that you could print off and laminate on survival stuff, what
would you want it to be on? If nothing else I can compile a list of guides people think would be good, and maybe some people (cough
) would help
make the guides...or atleast help compile the info that would be listed on each sheet.
