    G’dayI am chuffed. After



I am chuffed. After purchasing the Crash Course years ago and all the fantastic information I have received since then from this site, to be able to bring something informative to your attention very pleasing.

I work as a field service technician on bleeding edge technology. I know how fragile our modern systems are. For years I have had concerns that any disruption to the "just in time" distribution systems could result in massive social breakdown.

I live near a regional city in New South Wales which is surrounded by broadacre farming, so 90% of all food is imported from outside the region.  There is no local warehousing so the region really is only 3 days from starvation.

I have been watching the Prepper Movement and have made some preparations for me and my family. Hopefully I will never need them.

"No Mercy" has enlightened me as to potential dangers that have not been discussed in Prepper circles.

    Surviving a mine disaster

Read this week's New Yorker for a detail article on how 33 miners survived 69 days with little food & water 2400 feet below the surface.  A harrowing tale reinforcing many of the points raised above by Oldvanman..

    There was a story that popped

There was a story that popped up on the internet a few years ago from an alleged Bosnian survivor.  Many disputed the validity of his story.  He either went through it or did a fantastic job detailing his alleged experience.  It told the tale of what it would take to survive in a collapsed situation.  Most of us are not nearly ruthless enough to survive if it truly turns bad.

Another great resource is the movie "After Armageddon" and the tale of a family that struggles to survive when the systems all collapse.
