    Great reference point (and shopping links) point to start putting things together.

    From personal experience I know this is a tough job as inflection, tempo, tone and intentional 'funny' sounding voices can not be heard via a keyboard. So a sarcastic remark or funny post can sometimes come off the wrong way. Being a Moderator, can mean rereading the post in question (several times in some cases) to try a interpret these things. It also means waiting for a response from the OP (post or PM) to further clarify what they meant. That is often the best time for a Mod to step in, at that specific time that the OP has clarified their post. None of this is easy and any Moderator who has been around for awhile, is still an active member of the board and is still liked/respected by the community deserves a 'hats off salute' for doing a great job of representing the community and themselves with professionalism.

    I have enjoyed all of Jerry's stories mostly short but educational wrapped up in fiction

    Lots of great ideas and information. Good for the survivalist, hobbyist and those who would rather DIY, instead of buying various items.

    I remember this from a cold weather training course. The 'swiss' seat or repelling seat works, but it isn't always comfortable. Great resource for those looking for some Knot Knowledgle.

    Glad to see the Propper brand cargo pants on there and USGS maps. I prefer 1:24K maps myself. Nice that the link goes right to the USGS Store. This is a great starting point. The 10 C's Checklist!

    If you understood EMP a bit better you'd understand why the place you saw it posted before had negative reviews.

    The sole purpose for a Faraday cage is to re-route the current around the object being protected. So cutting and pasting plates inside a case are of little value. You have to have a shield around the outside that is continuous, with no gaps (or inside with no gaps and your device isolated (not touching) the shielding material. The goal is not to have any current flow around the device.

    Much better (and cheaper) to do this is get an aluminum trash can. Put your laptop and drives in your Pelican case (which is nice to protect against bumps..but is NOT bulletproof) inside. Take your copper or aluminum foil and make sure your lid is securely on with the copper or aluminum foil around the edges insuring a tight seal...no gaps.

    The main deal is to electrically isolate the electrical device from touching your Faraday cage, and then ensure the cage is sealed.

    Nice thing about using the trash can is you can unseal easily, and add gear to it easily.

    I do have a metal camera case which might do as a Faraday cage, but I'd have to sacrifice the key lock and seal the edges better than it seals with just the snap locks.

    One of Jerry's better ones, emphasis is on the interlocking of computers and power with everything and how fragile it is in the end.
    Relatively short and a good read. As usual some good lessons.

    One of Jerry's best. Basic theme is what one person can accomplish for the survival of the entire community. Sort of an anti raider story in that it seeks to ensure the the tools and mindsets that will lead to the survival of the community and local society.

    Great selection of garage plans with various sizes to choose from. It looks like you could take the plans to the local gubmint office and have them approve (or add whatever local items are needed). Good dreaming material :^)
