To follow up on Flora in New York City’s “Questions on Short Term Survival in an Urban Office Building”, here is a link to Aton Edward’s highly recommended book Preparedness Now! which also contains a link to the April 2008 New York Times article that allowed me (thankfully) to find Survivalblog.com for the first time.
Additionally, here is a video interview with Mr. Edwards recorded in New York City and addressing exactly the kind of equipment/tools and awareness/preparedness issues that an office-bound urbanite like Flora needs to survive.
Since April, I ordered and read “Patriots“, the Rawles Get’s You Ready course, and “Rawles On Retreats and Relocation“. Thank you for your informative, easy-to-navigate, and comprehensive blog! This weekend I finally finished reading every page and every day’s worth of SurvivalBlog archive posts from the last three+ years (it took more than six weeks and I now have a big “To Do” list). – Lee in Hurricane Alley
