How to Survive

I wasn't being flip in my previous post about it Getting Worse. Below are some links where you can get information on what you have to do be prepared. Some of the sites are what you might expect(a little wing nutty and over the top) and constantly referring to TEOTWAWKI, or "the end of the world as we know it." but a lot of them have some good information. Filter out the wingnut and get what you need.

For what it is worth, and forgive me please for being frank, not being prepared to protect yourself and your family in case of natural catastrophe, nuclear war, or societal collapse is just plain stupid. I'm not saying you have to go overboard and be prepared to survive for six months with no outside contact but just make a reasonable effort to be prepared for a month or 6 weeks of limited access to food and or lack of utilities. It's just prudent.
