    The Library

    Post links to books and manuals that are "must haves" in your Survival and Preparedness Library - this is a source for hard-copy information, or sources that can be printed out.

    Bonus points for sources of free information, but NO shady torrents of other such nonsense.
    The sun will rise tomorrow; itís your attendance of the event that is uncertain.

    Great information. Two interesting suggestions were never ration water and adding bleach to stored tap water.

    I have quite a few purification tablets stored, but really need to stock up on contaminate filtering devices.

    Reecently added to the personal library.

    The Survival Handbook, Colin Towell, Dorling Kindersly.

    Auhor:

    The author was the Royal Navy's Chief Survival Instructor and has spent 30 some years teaching survival skills to all branches of the military including SF. He also spent 3 years at the US Navy SERE School as the Chief Instructor.

    My Thoughts:

    The book provides a good and comprehensive introduction to the novice student, hopefully encouraging further learning and practice. For the advanced student it gives an excellent refreher of previously learnt information and also points at some new skills that may not have been encountered previously.

    Overall:

    Well worth $30.00.

    Where There Is No Doctor

    I have this PDF saved on every computer I own. Can't link it directly, but this is pretty close: (The title is "Where There Is No Doctor,")

    http://www.hesperian.org/publications_download.php

    500 pages of very, very comprehensive medical information spelled out in layman's terms.

    Some interesting documents relating to the mountain men that may have survival applications:
    http://mtmen.org/mtman/mmarch.html

    We always see the US .mil FMs on the gun boards. Here is the Canadian equivalent stuff, in case anyone has ever wanted to look over their stuff:

    Some of this stuff might be of interest to someone; I include it mainly for the knot PDF's

    I've steered away from posting links to other boards, but since this board seems to be hosting quite a few PDFs I hadn't seen elsewhere, I thought I'd make an exception. Registration is required, but no minimum post count required before you can download, as with some other boards:

    http://www.bushcraftusa.com/forum/downloads.php?

    There are chapters 2 through 4 online; here is chapter 4, about saws:

    Spreadsheets for every imaginable thing. You might want to poke around the parent directory as well. Obviously there is a focus here on agriculture, but see if anything else interests you:

    You might find something useful here about agriculture:

    Most of this sites stuff is repetitive, but since many of these sites seem to drop off the net without warning, it doesn't hurt to have a backup site with similar material on it:
    http://mindofme.com/survival/

    I saw this site and figured stuff on it about the old dairy tech might help SOMEONE here eventually:

    I've recently finished reading "The Unthinkable: Who Survives When Disaster Strikes and Why" by Amanda Ripley and I am wondering if there are any other books that would be worth reading on the subject of training yourself to combat the effects of immobility and brain fog during an extreme situation.

    I've searched for books written by specwar members about combating brain fog but haven't really located any.

    I am mainly looking for exercises and training regimes to help my mind stay lucid during an attack or extreme situation. Recently after finding a few suggestions online, I've taught myself to juggle, and learned an additional language, all of which have been proven to help the brain remain cognitive under stress.

    Any other suggestions?
