I started reading a new blog today. Gotta do that since so many have dropped out for the Summer. I guess they figure the fall of civilization will wait until they get back. But the new guy is http://guanxi-trading.blogspot.com/. He is pretty smart and his mind seems to be together. He has a two part article on Bartertown. Read it. He makes a lot of sense. And remember, you will want a Bartertown. Having people drop by at odd hours to trade and palaver is not going to be conducive to a peaceful existance.
Jim Dakin wrote a great blog today. He is at http://bisonsurvivalblog.blogspot.com/ in case you don't already know it. The same with Jim Rawles over at the great http://www.survivalblog.com/. Very good blog.
The Handmaiden has given me a foraging link that I find to be very informative. You if are into god and free then try http://www.prodigalgardens.info/articles.htm. Nice pictures and all of that. She also gave me a site of some contrarianism called http://realitysandwich.com/the_new_urban_forager. This site is for folks who do it for the rebellion of it, among other things. Good info, though.
