As someone who's been starting to give some of this thought this is a great place for valuable starting resources.

I found the wind energy system link very good, since I had actually used the book during my Undergrad Research on small wind turbine urban generation.

And for those who are thinking "Boy, that guy's an idiot for not planning on this before." I'm a college student and from a poor family to boot, not a lot of resources to spare to consider having much more than a bug out bag worth of supplies on hand. Though knowledge is priceless. Find someone with the resources but no knowledge, and you're set in the theoretical Situation X.

Yeah i was very intrigued by some of them. i started my own raised bed veggie patch.
If you only have concrete for a back yard you can create a garden bed. By laying down plastic, making a wood/brick square edging, placing some newspapers on top of the plastic then hay and soil, worms, seeds and wella. I source organic seeds where i can to make sure its close to nature as possible and i get very good yield otherwise nursery plants burn and die.

Excellent Topic and Massive Links!!!

I'm not sure how to survive if the SHTF. I live across from the beach so have a cast net and fishing equipment, propane tanks, water storage etc. But I figure if the SHTF forget it.. I'd be on the beach trying to catch fish and would either be bludgeoned for my gear or beaten and robbed of the catch, then get back to my home to find my family half dead and raped by thugs. The only way to survive will be to turn into a vicious animal, like a violent inmate at Rikers. I can't be like that so am likely f'd.

Hope it helps

Think I'll have to invest in a mini notebook / laptop and solar charger and download all of these e-books, that way if TSHTF I can have a good read.

S&F! Thank you for sharing this with us all. This is huge....

Some of these links may not work. Most will though.

Thanks for the links to the info. Great Stuff!

I've always had an interest in survival tactics ... to the point of which I collect military field manuals on escape and evasion, also any maps I come across in case they may be helpful if I'm trekking a long journey on foot. I also raise my own garden. I may be a little borderline paranoid, but I just moved outside of the city so that I won't have to make an exodus if something were to happen in these economic times.

S+F right there buddy!

Mondo amount of links, had to bookmark this page so I can easily get back to them - too busy with another wee project right now to even consider starting to read. Nice work, I hope a mod pays up with some applause pointege

If that's your thinking why not get a USB flash drive, one that lends it's self to being robust, the one on my keyring is a corsair 4gig thing, the casing is rubber it has been through quite a lot and it's fine.

Anyways anything bigger than about 512 MBs would be ample for document files... Maybe think about the file types, PDF could be a bother because some computers may not have PDF reading software - and with out net access you won't be able to change that. copy and pasting into a .txt file or something else should be ok...

p.s. I usually keep a few, *ahem, security testing applications on my 4GB flash drive
always helps to get admin and wireless network access!

I've downloaded them all. Thank you for so much information all in one spot.
Will burn them off. Another really crucial thing, underestimated is, the survival of advanced technology. We need textbooks and mathematics, physics, astronomy. Schematics for computer technology as well. Even if only a small pocket survive a planetary disaster, we want this hidden all over the place in caves. Also advanced medical.
