Surviving Chaos: What’s on your bookshelf or bookmarked?

Walk into the typical bookstore and there is a now a significant presentation of survival books. A few years ago there were maybe a half dozen. Recently, I found 13 survival books ranging from preparation for urban, suburban warfare in the coming collapse to let’s all get together and start a community garden ignore those guys with guns to how to skin a Newt and stay warm in wet hemp clothing.

It is not unusual to find recommended lists of survival books (practical how to information). Then there are the fictional/non-fictional accounts of chaos and doom that incorporate the mental aspects along with the mechanical how to’s. I have several that I recently bought to review and study. They are mix of the urban collapse…where’s my ammo to stranded overnight in the wilds and did you adequately prepare your pack or car before heading out. Maybe you have a favorite survival book or link, and could summarize the worth of your favorite(s).

True North (Cloudless Night & True North); Rules of 3 for Survival

Big Dipper & True North

Big Dipper & True North

Big Dipper Method: Draw a straight line through the two stars that make up the end of the pot (opposite the handle) and continue this line away from the opening of the pot until it intersects a star known as “Polaris” (the North Star) and you have North.

The Rule of 3’s simply stated is you have:

  • 3 minutes without AIR
  • 3 hours without SHELTER
  • 3 days without WATER
  • 3 weeks without FOOD

Search and rescue statistics show most people are rescued within 72 hours, so if you handle the first 2 priorities, you’re most likely going to make itspottedowl[1].Check out the other survival tips at Wilderness Survival Blog….you learned some of this in Cub Scouts and the Military. However, most of us have become to comfortable in the outdoors a hundred yards from our rig. Everyonce in  awhile you venture to that remote tributary. If you fall, get lost or are otherwise stranded what is your plan for survival? Are you carrying anything with you for survival? Does anyone know where you were headed?
