Dare to prepare is a virtual encyclapedia of  preppers info

Prudent places is a CD rom that shows you more information than you dreamed possible on locations & helps to determine a good location  or at least learn the vulnerabilities of yours.

I own the book Dare to Prepare 2nd Edition. It is indeed a good source since it covers many, many things. One warning about it the authors are Australians, but they did write in a very universal fashion. I only mention this fact because the book does discuss some products and the info about the codes on canned food may not fully mesh with N. America or the U.S.A.

I did not know they live in the U.S. I know they mentioned many things about Australia in the book with regards to food and firearms. Perhaps they wrote the book while down under?

In anycase it does not detract from all the good information in the book. How to make candles. What the governments do not tell you when they say get tarps and duct tape to truly be safe. Rating gas masks. Outdoor materials. It just goes on and on very good book.

As an aside,   I can't recall where I found it....   
There's a good DVD called "sheltering in place"
It goes way beyond the goobermint's vague references to "plastic sheeting & duct tape"



Ok this wasn't my source for it,  but they've got a web page specificly for the DVD here

Yeah, we just bought the "Sheltering in Place" DVD.  We got it at this online store called advanced mart.  Here's the link...

OOps, I feel like a jerk as I didn't realize Iron Mike had posted a better (and cheaper) url to get the DVD at

We also bought some hand crank short wave radio/flashlight things for our bug out bags there too.  It's pretty creepy stuff to have to think about but I must admit, I had no idea of how to deal with the possibility of nuclear fallout etc. and this really helped clarify some things to do to keep yourself in one piece.  The stuff they suggest is on our "still to do" list for prepping as it wouldn't be practical in the event of an emergency to be running around trying to find and cut up cotton sheets, etc. ;)

P.S.  They also showed how to protect electrical equipment from EMP (electro magnetic pulses which would fry the circuitry) which I didn't think was possible.  Of course, I'm sure their method (a metal garbage can with a comforter inside and inside that, your electrical devices) isn't failsafe but at least it's worth a try.  I listened to an interesting (and disturbing) podcast on EMFs that was given by a scientist in 2006.  It was a Doctors for Disaster Preparedness podcast called "Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) presentation by Bronius Cikotas at DDP 24th Annual Meeting".  You can download it through Itunes if you subscribe to the Doctors for Disaster Preparedness podcasts.

No sweat conductor,  we're all on the same team.


I served as co. NBC NCO once.  I got a crash course in it,  mostly had to study on my own.
I thought I was good to go  as I had some of the best info made available thru the US army.       Only much later did I realize that the army's major concern was to keep you in the fight long enough for replacements to arrive.   After that they really didn't care about exposure rates, long term effects, ect.
