OK Lets inject some rationality to this
The basics> The best survival manual since the lost book of Robinson Crusoe as written by Tom Hanks, The SAS Survival Guide by John "lofty" Wiseman
is now available as an APP on the Ipod
This app makes finding areas or interest easily, give videos and talks as well as photos and quizzes that the original paper version did not have.
So as a study tool, it is good. If out on survival exercise item is a useful tools
But lets put it like this.
If the TSHTF and this stuff got real. and I had my Ipod and my solar charger. I;m there with the best reference guide fully available to me with all
my music and video to boot.
The rest of you pure blood blood and bones survivalists are lugging around you paper based books on herbs, and back issues of guns and ammo. whilst
arsing around with sticks and rope trying to tell north. Where as if you had read the SAS survival guide you would know that if you had an analog
watch this serves the same purpose, faster and without having to lie on the ground, and risk getting bitten.
All the talk about being prepared, and yet your not willing to take advantage of a clear simple and easy tool that just makes your life easier.
becuase ooo what if the battery runs out, or what if there is a solar storm
If the battery runs out charge it with you solar charger. if there is a solar storm, I have never heard of this affecting an Ipod. maybe Iphone, but
the app would still work just not the calling bit as the network would be down. if there is not a solar storm, and you have an Iphone. For god sake
call someone! Where in the world do you think you would be in this world in a survival situation where there is no mobile coverage. Especially you
And if it is a post nuclear holocaust situation. and the ipod is broken. Well that will teach you to have ready the damn information in the first
Anyway I think its cool, and easier for me, as I travel a lot. if it doesn't work for you, and you prefer the book! that's fine too. But there is no
reason to talk it down, as it is damn good info.
