>>> "the event of a massive EMP burst, ie, a nuclear device going off in the atmosphere, you all tend to forget it will rip a huge hole in the ozone layer as well - frying everything. Forget electricity at that point - think of vegetation turning crips, lakes evaporating and rivers drying out. Think bigger - the army won't be looking out for you at that point - there is a whole population ready to go underground in a few military bases, and you have to ask yourself if your name's on the survival list, at that point in time.
I know I'm not on a survivor list. But I do know how to live 40 days without anything electrical at all. I had kersoene, an indoor wood burning stove, and a hand cranked wooden stereo. I rocked." <<<
*ping* ~~~ I never knew this about an EMP, thanks much for posting the info here.

40 days?I am good for 18 months.By the end of that time, I will be in Canada on the Atlantic coast, kicking back with a few brewskies between episodes of fishing and hunting.
