Re: Snowpocalypse Now

This is one hell of a winter out here in the hills of south central mass... at first I didn't want any more snow but now I'm thinking what the hell, lets see how deep this stuff can actually get.

Re: which book to get my wife on board

If you want her to really get onboard then maybe fiction isn't the best choice.

How about a documentary film?
I'd suggest "Collapse" My wife watched it and now she is just as interested in prepping as me.

Re: Solar Setup for My Apartment

There is a kit at harbor freight that I have been thinking about getting for myself that might work for you. It seems like a really good kit for beginners like me to learn about solar energy. http://www.harborfreight.com/45-watt-solar-panel-kit-90599.html?utm_term=90599&utm_medium=cse&utm_source=goo...

We rely heavily on getting our information from the internet but in it's absence I'd like to have a good well rounded collection of books to reference. In the event of a ...
