Hardcopies Of Survival Literature. Get You Some.
What? Reading Mr. Rogers keeps morale up.
In this day and age of technology and an electronic device for everything short of wiping your ass, it’s easy to lose sight of remedies for tough times if our power grid goes down. The two day blackout in our area last year made that painfully clear to those living in my area. But what if the power went out for weeks, months, years? There’s no telling if or when this situation will occur, but I predict a mass suicide among Apple diehards should it happen.
After the initial anger and mopeyness settles amongst us suffering from #firstworldproblems, it’s good to have some sort of back up plan for survival resources one would normally refer to online or via computer. While I have a few survival manuals on my laptop and smart phone, those are as good as gone should the power grid ever fail us long term. My solution seems simple but given how dependent Americans are on consistent elecricity, it seems prudent to back up all survival resources with hardcopies. I have a few key books on hand to refer to when SHTF, or to use as fuel/toilet paper when the going gets really bad. You should do the same. Even if all of your resources are on the computer, grab a three ring binder from office depot and print the hell out of as many works as you can. In a legal manner, of course.
