    Hi, I'm New. I have an interest in wilderness survival and hope to learn much here, I hope my questions don't annoy anyone. I'm 54 and live in the Southwest. I am currently seeking to find if anyone knows if the old Survival Cards are being manufactured and if anyone knows where they are available. They were a set of five waterproof cards loaded with survivaal info and meant to be included in survial kits. There was also a single card version which was meant for wallet carry and had a compass you could peel off and and float on water. Thanks for the welcomes I've received here and any information helping me find these items.

    Just did a quick check...they are available on Amazon.com
    And if you go through the link on the Monkey's front page, you'll be helping out the site, too.
    Welcome, before I have a chance to forget to mention it ;)
    ETA: these are not the original, but are for urban or wilderness survival.

    Thanks Kellory. I took a look and those are more like metal tools. The cards I seek are paper and printed with instructions, signals etc. Sorry if I was unclear but I thank you for your help.

    Yes, those are the cards I was looking for. Nothing came up when I had checked the internet and I hadn't thought of ebay or amazon. Thanks for all the help finding them. And again, thanks to everyone for making me feel so welcome. The survival bandanna has been around for a long time. I remember that Cheaper Than Dirt even had a rudimrntery survival kit built around one some time back.
