Malgus: Great suggestions. People forget the wealth of knowledge in a library. Also everyone depends on their GPS now. I can think of several scenarios where the system will be down.
I traveled extensively for business. When I started to think about SHTF scenarios while I was traveling, knowing where I was and how to get home came to the top of my list.
I started gathering maps of the areas I traveled to. One trip I went to an area that I traveled to all the time. Didn’t bother to take the GPS out of wife’s vehicle, because I knew exactly where I was going. Had done it a thousand times.
One tornado swarm later, the interstate and many roads were closed. My pile of maps in the seat back that my wife made fun of got me home, safely and easily. Don’t hear those jokes anymore.
