    Superb! Excellent Bill -- this is incredibly valuable!
    When you are one step ahead of the crowd, you are a genius.
    Two steps ahead, and you are deemed a crackpot.

    Kudos not to me, but to another forum member whose identity I should maybe diligently protect here. (Thank you again! You know who you are. )

    This person sent me the very valuable source web page, and I just reformatted the whole thing as a couple of long posts plus the PDF. Very happy to help make the info widely available, as was the original intention. I agree that it is most extremely useful.

    Really good Bill! I'm going to study these and share them with a couple friends who are also "aware" and discuss these matters privately.

    Pardon me if I’m mistaken here, but doesn’t this excellent resource presuppose availability of an internet connection – and the power to run one under duress? Seems to me that when the power went out for several days in Manhattan after Hurricane Sandy people were mainly frantic that they couldn’t recharge their smartphones to get online.... That’s no way to garner good advice in a prolonged grid/infrastructure power shutdown, which itself is a high-probability event no matter what the cause.

    I’m a proponent of good old fashioned printed reference books for this reason. No power required.

    • Excellent survival texts with a good deal of this info can be had cheaply from Amazon as used or paperbacks. Under duress a small library of these essentials is worth more than their weight in gold. Books come laden with diagrams and details often unavailable on websites. Here is my personal list of essential faves I assembled at The Golden Thread http://www.thegoldenthread.info/phpB...hp?f=19&t=2585

    • I’ve also taken the precaution of printing out interesting website survival instructions and popping them into a binder. (And I’ve printed out duplicates of a few essentials to give to the inevitable clueless friends who will really need the info – I know better than to ‘loan’ anyone my last copy of anything....LOL) Binder is thick, but priceless.

    • I’ve also stuffed a printed copy of the ‘how to’ diagrams etc along with the bundle of supplies for same. i.e. How to make a solar oven/water filter/use a whatever etc. along with the supplies for each. Otherwise, I might have bags of sand, gravel, charcoal and a metal screen but no idea how to assemble them correctly to make a water filter...

    • If TSHTF and longer-term (more than a few weeks) considerations start to take hold, those books on gardening, first aid, cooking, sanitation, sheltering etc will start to become more and more useful.

    Thanks for this list, Bill and *whomever* . I’ll be adding to my collection.

    Cheers,

    Selene

    Very precious resources here guys. Thanks.

    I would like to add a model of can stove similar to the one listed above, but a little bit better, imo. Small details make big diferences in the result. This video has been posted somewhere here in Avalon already, but it is so good that i think it should be in this thread as well.

    " How To Turn A Beer Can Into The Only Camping Stove You'll Ever Need ", by Tom Allen.
    We are walking together.

    Pardon me if I’m mistaken here, but doesn’t this excellent resource presuppose availability of an internet connection – and the power to run one under duress?
    Quite a job, of course, but it would be a few hours well spent to save each linked web page of interest as a PDF and then archive it (or print it). (Some of them are PDFs already.) Similarly, YouTube videos can be archived using http://keepvid.com.

    Many Avalonians will already have substantial amounts of self-help and other material archived. For any new members reading this, do take a look at the very valuable Interesting Free Books in PDF thread, where there's an immense amount of material in downloadable e-book form.

    Was recently thinking about the challenge of running a refrigerator when living off grid, today I found this webpage that describes use of a chest freezer, with some significant modifications, that uses 10 times less energy than a normal fridge.

    Excellent resource - thank you Bill and 'other forum member'.
    I concur with Selene though, on the value of printed hard copy.
    I have a mate who filled a 1 terabyte external hard drive with similar material as insurance
    against network failure. Then his hard drive packed it in.

    I'm sure a tech could retrieve the data onto another drive - but it does demonstrate the
    transient nature of storing anything digitally.

    I guess there is no substitute for the memory - especially when gained through the
    experience of living as self sufficient and sustainably as naturally possible.

    It's going to take years of camping trips with my kids to practice all this stuff.
    How long have we got?
