Information, in the form of books, is just as important as how much food, water, or ammo you have stocked.

Always a good idea to have certain books covering subjects such as survival, first aid, knots and rigging, how to grow your own food, and how to construct basic shelters and other projects.

If you don't want or cannot afford to buy them, then by all means print the stuff out and keep it handy and protected from the elements. Zip lock bags, etc.

One thing people over look as well is the type of tools to keep on hand. Things like hammers, saws, shovels, axes, screwdrivers are just as important as your water proof matches and MRE's.

Thanks. A lot of those appear to have useful information. Then you get to the "water as fuel" nuttery.

I saw that, but what can I say? ;-)
But like you said MOST are filled with good information.

While I appreciate learning all about survival techniques (I believe we are going to be needing them), I haven’t yet gotten past the fact that without access to the prescriptions I need on a daily basis for mild diabetes, high blood pressure, myoclonus, etc., and the abrupt discontinuation of them.... sadly, the techniques are for naught... reality for me is, it will be “survival of the fittest”.

I decided to post it anyway.

1) See if you can get your Rx a day or two early. See if you can squirrel away 1-3 pills per month that way. After a year, you can get about month or so saved. It takes time.

2) Samples, samples, samples. Doctor's will give you sample packs of your meds most times if you ask for them. As long as it isn't pain meds or other stuff people take for recreation. They are there to be handed out, they will give them to you especially if you tell them you're having trouble affording your meds. Ask for samples every time you go. Each sample pack is generally for 7 days. You can really rack up the stockpile. But again, only ask for those that you absolutely need.

3) Anytime you get a cold and need anti-biotics, save a few.

For the stuff you can't get easily, like injections, talk to your Doctor. Be honest and tell him your concerns. If you tell him you are concerned about either money or catastrophe and that you'd like to have a month's refill for emergencies, most Doctor's will agree with your concerns and may help you figure out a way to do it. Mine did. Just never ask regarding pain meds.

For pain meds, just stock up on over the counter stuff. Tylenol, topicals, aspirin, etc.

Most meds have an expiration date, so rotate your supply with your newly refilled Rx's every so often.

I just picked up “How To Survive The End Of The World As We Know It” on Thursday. It is full of tons of useful information.

I'll have to check that one out. A friend just got me "When All Hell Breaks Loose". And other than straight field manuals, "Patriots" by Rawles has been the most informative so far. Keep a highlighter handy for that one.

These are Boy Scout Manuals for grownups. :)

“How to Survive...” is written by Rawles. Basically he takes all of the technical and survival info from “Patriots” and expands on it.

Hey Kart, seems Harry has moved his link or broke it.

Did you keep a copy of the books in question?
