Re: Consolidated List of Links to Existing Preparation ...

This is a great resource!

Chris, maybe this deserves its own button at the top of your home page labeled, "Resources" with a consolidated alphabetical list and link to all these threads.

Re: Consolidated List of Links to Existing Preparation ...

Great thread!! 

Perhaps I've just overlooked it. Is there a thread somewhere on how to choose a place to settle?

What to look for in a community. (Size of town, Distance to major cities, On a railroad, On a navigable river, Socioeconomic mix, Concerns regarding proximity to Mexican/Canadian border, etc)

What to look for in a building site. (Flat or hilly, Usable trees, Soil concerns, Proximity to nearest community, etc)

Etc.

Re: Consolidated List of Links to Existing Preparation ...

Here is a recent article by Ferfal called "Economic Collapse Preparedness: What to do?", at http://ferfal.blogspot.com/2011/01/economic-collapse-preparedness-what-to.html .  There are definitely some overlapping themes with steps Chris has recommended.  But there are also some differences, as well as it being Ferfal's own perspective based on living through the Argentine economic collapse.  In addition, Ferfal gives specific steps for a beginner to take (from his preparation perspective), so it can be helpful to someone new to this.

Re: Consolidated List of Links to Existing Preparation ...

Petraviolet started a thread called "Free downloads of the "Where There is No Doctor" book series", at http://www.peakprosperity.com/forum/free-downloads-where-there-no-doctor-book-series/52733 .  The link posted (below) contains really useful information that I thought was well-worth highlighting on our consolidated preps thread.

This is a link to PDF downloads of the book Where There is No Doctor (mentioned by Chris in his "What Should I Do?" section on health)

The link also has PDF files of the other books in the series (Dentist, Women's health, etc.), as well as other health-related downloads. 

I had previously bought a couple of these books hardcopy at Amazon because the info they contained seemed so valuable.  Now you can download them (and more) for free!  Thanks for pointing us to such a great resource, PetraViolet!

Introduction to Permaculture

Highly recommend you look at the new "updated" Intro to Permaculture videos

North Carolina State University (Prof Will Hooker's)  29 video "Introduction to Permaculture"  lectures are at:    http://mediasite.online.ncsu.edu/online/Catalog/pages/catalog.aspx?catalogId=f5a893e7-4b7c-4b79-80fd-52dcd1ced715

In addition, I-tunes added 13 of the lectures and probably will finish adding the rest at a later date. 

It's under itunesU, but you can just go to the "store" and in the top right corner, type Introduction to Permaculture. You will see HS 432             Intro to Permaculture, look below  the red NC State Univ (box) and under "Description" you will see HS 432 lectures 2003 and HS  432 lectures 2010.  Click on 2010.
