Hiya and welcome to 'A Complete Survival Course plus lots more' -

In 1982 my first SAS Survival Instructor told me that his personal survival kit consisted of 200 cigarettes and £50 in local currency. That wasn't strictly true but it didn't stop me from questioning it either.

Whether you are here because you think that today its a good idea to have some knowledge of what to do in a disaster situation (and you're right!) or if survival/prepping/homesteading as a subject is something that you're passionate about I'm sure that there's lots here to benefit you and which you will enjoy.

If you would like to stay informed about the latest additions to this Survival Resource then you can sign up for periodical updates.

How good would that be if you were in a survival situation ? THIS would make your Kindle an EXCELLENT piece of Survival Kit. All the things you'd forgot or weren't sure about, no problem,
look em up !


  1. Ha - you know, just yesterday I saw a solar panel for the backpacker with a cell phone, kindle, or even computer. The little video showed this biker with this panel hanging down the outside of his backpack. I SO really need something like this. As far as survival, I truly live the life of an OLD school homesteader. My husband and I live in the far away wilderness of Alaska (at the moment I happen to be in town, but that is not a habit)

  2. Yeah, solar chargers are readily available and probably THE power source for all expeditions. When I say 'expeditions' I include anything where you might be away from a charging source for longer than the battery time of an piece of technology. Some bits of kit are now coming onto the market with their own dedicated solar panel.
