I have been reading this book now. It is called Survival And Self-Relience by J A Bigley. It is a book I would reccommend that you add to your library. The author also writes articles for the Backwoodsman Magazine.

I just finished reading When All Hell Breaks Loose: Stuff You Need To Survive When Disaster Strikes by Cody Lundin.  I thought this was great, a huge amount of information along with a lot of common sense. 
Has anyone else read this one?

Thanks, - OFG

I have his "98.6 Degrees" book and really enjoyed it.  Cody Lundin has a really good website describing what his school does:

Thanks for the recommendation of his book, OFG. :hug:

I read Skills for Taming the Wilds by Bradford Angier back when I was in 5th grade.  I think I need to find that one again and see what all I have forgotten.

I picked up a paperback book at a consignment shop for a Quarter called Roughing It Easy by Dian Thomas.   She taught Home Economics Education and Food Science and Nutrition at BYU.   Most of the books covers fires, food preparation, and cooking.   Considering it was printed in 1974, it is in very good shape.
You will never achieve true personal greatness unless you hold yourself to a higher standard than you hold others.

With all the new and different mistakes out there waiting to be made, why keep repeating the old ones?

There is not enough time to make all the mistakes yourself, so learn from the mistakes of others.
