sometimes things get lost when so much information is available
You just saved me and my wife a lot of time!
Thanks, I am bookmarking this link.
Great idea! I can't believe how many resources are on the site!
Here's a couple of more:

Food Storage, Lessons Learned and Recommendations
Preparation of community before food storage day. (Dogs has the incorrect link.)
Adding the Fall/Winter Gardening thread link for those who have this thread bookmarked
Pulled the following good links out of posts in the Fall/Winter thread......
Looks like there are a lot of new people bouncing around the site.
Posted to bump the thread back to the active list.
Bump! Perhaps this should be sticky-ed and updated if necessary.
Thank you Dogs.
Excellent. thanks, Dogs!
Good work Rick,
I've made this sticky at top of threads....excellent idea and thanks again dogs!
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.
crash_watcher, thanks for the suggestion. We are working on something like that. Stay tuned.
Thank you very much Dogs. I like the stuff. A lots of links to gain the information on each aspect.
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)
I have not seen one on this site . Look here http://www.survivalblog.com/retreatareas.html
Thank you very much!
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.
From pinecarr's LDS Preparation Manual thread......
Direct link to the manual in pdf form: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/20859980/LDS%20Preparedness%20Manual.pdf

Many, many thanks and a great find pinecarr!
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!
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.
Gas cans for safe storage and fueling.
Good information and a much needed one that can be used in it.
I know that you have got to make a living, but please try to be considerate.
