Lots of links in that one there chaswoody, but, most seem to be html documents with a few .pdf's dropped in. Looks like I have a fair bit of work to do

I'm bugging in.

But, if I was forced to leave, within an hour, no way I could carry my book stash, there are thousands, hundred or so survival related.

One of my thumb drives has over a thousand pdf's, on every survival subject imaginable. Another has business, financial, genealogical info. Netbooks don't take much power... I'd probably grab one of the smaller solar panels lying around the house, to power it with.

Prefer paper books, but the huge library on a thumb drive is irresistible.

I hope you don't think of all Muslims as your enemy! That's a good point though, religion has proved pretty much since the existence of man to help people "push on" and survive in bad situations. btw Art of war isn't as good as its cracked up to be.

Anyways as far as my collection, I collected American Survival Magazines from age 12 or so i think? Either 12 or 13 can't remember, have a lot of those. I also have a good collection of US FEMA/MILITARY survival guides on various disasters, basic construction manuals using raw materials for building homes, etc. Storing and purifying water, various wild animal and plants that can be safely eaten in different parts of the US/Mexico/Canada encase a mass evac or similar pushed me away from home state. A lot of manuals I never bought because they included things that were to me common sense, I grew up outdoors. I am looking to expand it with more electrical knowledge like solar and other home power alternatives though after agriculture, one day.....................







when I'm not poor.

I think you misunderstood my direction with "know thy enemies", I should have added that I believe that "knowing" is not he same as hating an enemy.
On to your collection, I have some of the same mags and all of the Survive series, even after they changed to 'Guns and Action'. Pack rat??? yes! Great reference material.
