When the post didn't show up after five or six days, I reposted it (I happened to have saved it because I was having computer problems that first day). But I got the same message and there's still no post two days later. I sent email to the webmaster, but no reply yet.

Help! Is there any way I can post those links without getting in trouble or having my post be lost? What am I doing wrong, please?

Sorry Rochelle, it was flagged, presumably, because you are a new member and posting links. Your post should be okay now. I think.

Default re-open thread

Does anyone know of a book, pamplet, or other printed material specific to survival in a specific region? Mostly what I find is general to a geographic area and non-specific. I am interested in western Texas Hill country to Edwards Plateau and including northeastern Chihuahua desert. I know that with alot of googling and research that I can find my own, then, what is the use of this forum? There are a lot of really smart people willing to help on this site. Soon, we may all be called to walk or talk, I want to walk.

Ya know, you have to be pretty careful. When I was younger, I got into the forage mode, and picked a bunch of fidle heads. Fried them up and we had a feast! only later on did I read onlline that there are other species that look just like fidle heads, but are poisonous!

Same with mushrooms. My dad picked them routinely, and I would go along, but never felt safe enough to do it on my own. Lots of poisonous ones out there too.

I would say, if you are serious, to take a course with a qualified biologist on foraging for wild food! A are placing your life in the hands of the author, who just might be a jamoke!

I once read one book that said "all puff balls are non-poisonous". Later, I read another book detailing the differrent and many poisonous puff balls!

And ONLY pick what you know! Do not take ANY chances. Big bunch of mushrooms that are a little unfamilair to you....leave them for the critters!

There is no nutritional value in mushrooms period,don't bother with them,it's not worth it.
I still stand by taste-testing.Your not makeing a meal out of anything yet,only a little taste to see if it's ok . Most people thrown into a crisis scenerio,may not have a choice. This is a safe way to prolong health in an
intelligent fashion.
In my youth,I spent many years on extended back woods trips( some over three months), all over North America . I've read many books and articles on the subject,one imparticular written by a royal Canadian mounty,I think his name was Townsend,great book.
I have tested many of these methods and this is one of the best and safest ways to stay alive.
