Newbie here checking in from Oklahoma. I just finished reading Patriots, Survivors, and now starting to read survivalblog.com. Time to start preparing for the inevitable..
Checkout "Freehold" by Michael Williamson it is sci fi, but it gives a concept on what we might want to rebuild. There is also a PDF novel "lights Out" by Halffast that can be searched up. There is a books thread on here. Another thread to check is "What is in your GOOD bag" and "What did you do to prep"
I took me a good month of reading before I got caught up, on buttons not to push and knowledge that is "Where's the Bathroom" type of question category..........(Often asked, and rarely replied to unless you look like your about to burst....)
