The modern survival manual

Post by scoobie » Sat Sep 19, 2015 2:22 pm

Surviving the economic collapse by Fernando 'ferfal' Aguirre

One of the best prep/survival books I've read. Written by a guy who lived through the 2001 financial collapse in Argentina.

Certainly eye opening, and very relevant to most if not all developed countries right now

I will second what Scoobie says there. I am currently re reading the same. It is very relevant.
In three words I can sum up everything I have learned about life: It goes on.

i think there was an excerpt of this book on this very site fairly recently, I printed it off back then and reread it last night, just ordered the while thing on Amazon.

there's also a segment from a book/blog/diary of a chap who lived in Bosnia during the war there, very powerful stuff both with similar themes - its the small stuff that you take for granted and don't even think about that'll find you wanting (soap & toilet roll etc.). These seem to be the most valuable trading items too..

common theme across both is that the individual bloke who's bugged in and tooled up soon gets overrun but to survive you have to band as a group.

I've got both of these texts as word documents, let me know if anyone wants a copy.

cheers
