    Link from a link from another link - originally posted at GLP here:
    http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message742541/pg1

    Hint: For the ScribD links, hit fullscreen and then zoom in once the document loads. Makes for much better reading.

    Though most of these are taken from the "Treasure" book list, I am putting them in this new Recession Proof GLP thread for ease of finding. They are organized into categories. If you like what you see, check back occasionally, because I will add to them, but will put additions at the foot of each category (in a new color) rather than on a new post.

    These are what I consider to be, essential or very helpful books and information (all free downloads) for the times we're living in and coming into rapidly.

    This is a great resource site for homesteaders, people interested in sustainability and survival techniques. There is so much here that the site deserves its own listing.
    Downloading directly from the site is free, but does require sign up and some information (including info on what you plan on doing with the materials provided). It's worth it!
    [link to www.itdg.org]

    This is yet another almost incredible information resource for all things homestead. It will take time, but is well worth the dig and everything is available for free download.

    Some of these links work. Others don't. The list is a valid wish list of info for a prepper, so I will delete nothing here.
    .
    sorry about those links that do not work.

    Have you checked those scribd links? Scribd is scrubbing its survival-type linked texts over the past few months

    "The list is a valid wish list of info for a prepper, so I will delete nothing here."

    I'd edit out the known bad links.

    I'll post my links list in case it can be of use to someone

    Apparently I didn't have the time to go out and grab those pdfs to attach here to this thread. It seems that most files have a shelf life of about 1 year a the most.

    Feel free to scrub the list as well as to gather the files...

    Scribd scrubbed well from what I can see. Even the titles that they appear to still be sharing are little more than the index page. If you scroll down a little bit beyond the forwards and such.... there's zip nadda nothing there. What a shame.

    I hope that you guys are poking around the parent directories of some of these links you're posting. Lots of other PDFs on the sites. Such as :

    If you can give me links to where I can download the above or add the PDF somehow to this thread.... I'd be most appreciative and.... I'm sure others would be too. I spent hours searching for what I was able to find that I listed out in post #11 and one more in post #12. That's about as far as my 1.5 hour adult education "learn how to search" class got me.

    Have you looked through the long list of links I gave? I'm pretty sure that at least some of what you want is there. I might have gotten some of my stuff from links I don't have there, but there is a lot there to wade through, I know.

    Otherwise PM me an email address and if I have some of what you want I'll send them to you

    I went through your links one by one. ;) I could have missed some I wanted because I didn't recognize the file.... I realized when downloading that some sites were shortening or changing the name of the document. I will admit to skipping all the ZOMBIE "stuff" and the fire preparedness sites too so it's possible I could have missed them if they were tucked in there. I went over the list again and I think I got them all.... at least I'm pretty sure I did. The Survivalist Boards had quite a few I was looking for. I actually registered there 1st before registering here so I had an account and could download. I was really excited until I got their little pop-up that said slow down you're going too fast or something like that and next thing I knew I got a pop up that stated I'd exceeded my daily limit>>>>? Uh huh.... somebody must have set that limit because other sites don't even make you register to download and they don't cut you off after downloading 5. I did get what I wanted from them by going back like 5 days in a row which was incredibly annoying. That's them not you though.... there must be some method to the making us mad by limiting what we save to only 5 per day. What it is would be beyond me because I won't go back there again after that even if it's free. I've got too much to remember as it is without having to stick a sticky to my computer to remind me to go back to a website to get free downloads. This site you recommended had quite a few, SHTF Info. These were dead links, http://www.codenameinsight.com/resources.htm and http://www.swsbm.com/homepage/ and http://pages.suddenlink.net/abosch1/Coleman536StoveInstructions.pdf[/url. FYI, I registered at the Librum and they're not giving anything away free anymore. They're charging for PDFs and they link us to PayPal which I don't have. That must have changed since you last visited. I did like the paleo diet site. Very interesting.... I saved that. DelMarVa you've got listed a few times. They did have a few things I saved. Overall.... I'd give your list an A+.... not that I count at all but.... I ran into some things I'd never even thought of saving.

    Homesteading Catalog
    Three quality publications that I found at this website but… you take a look and see what might be of interest to you. Most are auto downloads but a handful do require that you provide a name and e-mail address for them to send you a download link. If you want to donate, you can. If not, they’ll still let you download for free. It’s ok to fill in your real name and e-mail address if requested to do so. It’s not going anywhere, they really do need it and they will send a link to you. This is the website where I downloaded ‘One Straw Revolution’ years ago. They didn’t gunk my computer and I never ended up on any mailing lists.

    I appreciate the feedback!
    I admit that some of the sites must change addresses at the proverbial drop of a hat, so I appreciate feedback.
    As to the dead links, play around with the parent directories, such as

    Homesteading Catalog

    and

    Michael Moore - SW School of Botanical Medicine Home Page

    The info is still there, just shifted around the site for whatever reason. I will try to update my list accordingly as I am able.

    I agree that the DL limits are annoying, but I imagine that no site owner wants to bear the expense caused by widespread downloading. Even the infamous Steve of Steves pages has a comment on his site about massive downloading IIRC.

    The Research Abstracts from the last 10 years available from that Michael Moore site you just added look AWESOME!!!
    I've spent some more time trying to find PDFs for these and couldn't do it so I'm probably going to have to "bug" you by taking you up on that offer to e-mail them to me if nobody can find a link to them or add the PDFs. That was very kind of you BTW.

    Equilibrium

    Check your PMs.

    I propose an alternate solution given the size limit your email provider has for attachments, and the offer is open to anyone else as well.

    I'll load what I have on an external and mail it to Equilibrium. Equilibrium takes what he needs and adds anything he has that I don't have. Interested parties post in the thread if they want to be included, and Equilibrium sends the drive on to one of them, hopefully starting with someone he knows or can vouch for. Same process occurs as many times as needed. each person who gets the drive scans it with antivirus both when they get it and before they send it on so no one claims that the process gave their hard drive a nasty bug. Last person in the loop sends the drive back to me.

    This will require some honesty on everyones part that they wont keep the information to themselves and a willingness to spend a few bucks on postage.

    Any interested parties, chime in.

    edit:
    glad that you found that site useful. I always check the parent directories of any site that gets posted to see if there is other useful info I can use.
