    Could you provide alternate links to those books please? I'm having a hard time with Google not allowing me to sign in to view those.

    Thanks.
    She cries, children often do
    When they're cold, and hungry too,
    Come closer, look deeply in her eyes
    So delicate, quite unlike her smile

    Life clinging backwards,
    In the fall of dread confusion,
    Still this silence gnaws upon your fingertips,
    All-yielding prayer, for instant isolation,
    Far more sinister than the price of doubt,

    Yet you remain,
    Still you remain,

    And she says:
    Pray for daylight,
    Pray for morning,
    Pray for an end to our deception,

    There is more to prepping than stocking food. It's a way of life.

    Are you secure in your food and water supply? Are you prepared for prolonged power outages?

    Backpacker magazine has a section on survival skills. Pretty good stuff. The June issue had a good section on making fire in adverse weather conditions. One of the tips included making your own fire starters from wax, dental floss, dryer lint and paper egg carton sections: http://www.backpacker.com/survive-wi...survival/18458

    This is a very bad idea. I tried it and burned the damn thing up. Back to my universal.

    A great standby that is certain to work in almost any condition is cotton balls coated with Vaseline. Pre-coat a few cotton balls and stuff them into a film canister. It's a little messy but when fire and warmth are at stake who cares about a little grease.

    I have a sandwich bad full of dryer lint. Just for emergencies or camping. Never done it like this before. Too much work when the lint will get hot enough on it's own to start a fire.

    My concern is extra wet (or windy) conditions where a slow, sure burn might be necessary.
