So the shit has hit the fan and you have made it, but now the real fight to survive starts. You have a few skills but not as many as you like to have or need. So what do you do when you get sick and have no meds or no doctor? What will you or anyone do for help after the collapse? I read as much as I can and study as many skills as I can, and so should you. I was a EMT-D and I still know the skills I learned and I still work at the hospital and every time a doctor is doing something to a person I have never seen before I try to see it and some things I watch over and over because one day I may have to try to save some ones life and I need to know every thing I can learn. I go to every class I can at work to learn as much info as I can. I keep a large group of books that I read off and on and as I find new books with great info I get them and I know a time will come when we don't have power to use the world wide web to get info from so I will have my books to fall back on. I would advise you all to start a survival library to have on hand. I also find nice stuff on line but know I can't go to it if the web is down or we have no power so if I find something I like I print it out and file it in my survival file. I went out and got a file box to use just for great info from the world wide web. I want to have the hard copy on paper so I will have it if we don't have power or a working computer. So get to it and build yourself a survival library and READ IT!!!!! Don't just buy the books and let them sit on the book shelve never touched except to be put away. Bulid, plan, prep and survive!!!
From time to time I will post some good info to save in your survival file, here is one.
