I missed the part where you're printing em. how many pages, cartridges etc. have you gone through? or will have you gone through? would it just be cheaper to buy the books?

It probably would have been cheaper to buy the book. Definitely more time efficient. lol.

But, to be fair to hp printer cartridges, my wife uses the printer daily (and a lot) for her side job as a cpr instructor. So I really can't tell exactly how much ink I've used.

fwiw, I've got the first 6 files printed (with a table of contents I made) and it's 73 pages so far. The table of contents I made was kinda long, but I made it where the numerical listing corresponded exactly with the TACDA files. That way when I want to read something specific off the saved files, don't have to dig around to find which file and what page it's on.

If anybody wants that table of contents file shoot me a pm and I'll send it to you attached in an e-mail. Looks like this...

Two book were really helpful to me. First was Emergency by Neil Strauss. This is less a serious how to book then a humors narrative of the author going through the process of learning SHTF skills. Its very funny and well written and I enjoyed seeing someone else's experience getting into this stuff in a non-crazy move to a compound in Montana kind of way.

The second one was The Ultimate Suburban Survivalist Guide by Martin Weiss. I think this one is a must have. It takes a very realistic attitude of if you can't live in the middle of nothing he's what you can do to prepare yourself. The basics are offered as a least-you-can-do starting point then built on. He even covers financial preparedness.

If your looking for something that's not just lists of crap to buy this is a good one. Just a lot of things you can start doing now as part of your daily life.
