I'm putting together a small notebook of general survival tips, and long-term necessities. Essentially a homemade handbook on what to do when the SHTF. I've got basic stuff already in there, such as a basic lean-to, some knots and hitches, and a couple of snares.
Has this been done before?
If so, is there a copy of it that I could get my hands on(free preferred)?
Regardless of this, what are your must have's for info and basic gear for short and long term survival innawoods or in a SHTF scenario?
Sorry if this has been done before, and I'm new, and sorry if I'm wasting time.
sealing them keeps them waterproof. I guess that's good if you want to throw a few in your backpack for a weekend camping trip.....
Also they should make Lunchable MREs
this thead is lame so i'll do my best to liven it up a bit. dumping outdoor related infographics
don't underestimate the convenience of carrying a little char cloth
last one I have.
Always remember kids, infographics can truly be useful tools to a smart, motivated person. but you need to practice the skills in the field before needing them for real! Happy outing :)

practice making traps in the backyard. in a real wild situation if you set up enough traps, you will get food.
This checklist is to test for the edibility of plants.
If you follow these steps, you almost don't need to know anything about plants to be able to gather edibles safely.
obviously not for nuclear fallout, but a quick and effective shelter/storage cache for sure.
Obviously. The graphic isn't saying "run from bears". The very first sentence tells you that NOT running is statistically the best option. Did you even read it? The running part is a last resort. And the advice about what to do to prevent encounters is sound.
Learning and properly being able to identify plants with certainty takes time, whereas these steps can be learned in 60 seconds. Guess there's no advantage there.
Ever think you might be stranded in an unfamiliar/unstudied place? Maybe you just want to be cautious? Ohh no those aren't possibilities at all right?
So sorry for posting such a stupid usless method of survivalism.
I read the thing too.
My worry is that by the time you're in a survival situation and need to eat the local flora, you'll probably starve to death before you find out which plants you can eat using these methods.
I mean, eating strange plants seems like kind of a last resort thing to do, and if you're that desperate you might not have time to figure out what's edible, let alone what's capable of sustaining you.
this is a 75 gig torrent filled with how to books-mostly in pdf's, if you use a program like qbittorrent you can pick and chose which folders you want so you can avoid stuff like computers/explosives/forensics if you dont want those sections. This is truely a 1 stop shop for what you are asking about
videos is just like every other folder only in video form, explosives, detail weapons strips, etc etc
uploads is a user submitted section not by the OP of the file, it is very poorly sorted, everything from how to learn french to more medical files good info still but you need to dig to find it
Great, so when SHTF we can reference this with our...?
I'm pretty sure the point is that you learn this shit BEFORE SHTF.
Are you really going to travel into the woods with a folder full of notes about what to do without every having practiced it?
Have fun with that.
The point of this thread is OP wants to make a survival handbook for when SHTF and wants handy reference information to include in it.
Think when you're packing to go for a month long hike, you're not going to try and fit a fucking backpack around your house. You want to fit the smallest and lightest things as efficiently as possible.
OP is trying to pack information into a handbook.
Giving him a fucking library is like kicking him in the dick.
i ran a virus scan after it finished downloading when i first got this, i got a couple false hits in the computer section b/c it does talk about hacking and even having a txt document with the same name as a virus throws up some flags
there are different levels of shtf, assuming a emp didnt wipe every computer out i still think its handy. To assume the only kind of happening means camping is kind of naive
I hate that info pic, wearing out your socks elasticity is stupid.
LOL. wow dude. I really can't tell if you're that fucking stupid or if it's just a really bad troll.
You telling me you long distance hike/camp without bringing some form of cooking pot and utensil? It's called a pocket rocket, get one.
>The point of this thread is OP wants to make a survival handbook for when SHTF and wants handy reference information to include in it
That statement right there is a problem. If you go into the woods with a bunch of paper without having practiced any of the techniques described, ur gonna have a bad time.
Pic related covers damn near everything you could think of, edible plants, tracks traps, knots yadda yadda.
Only problem for most people with this book though..
Is that it's in Swedish.
Aye, some illustrations are the same, but the english one is more filled out with writing whilst the swedish one is barebones-need-to-know stuff.
Imho, I'm prefering the latter in terms of learning.
