Technology gets a bad rap with some preppers but I find it amusing that they voice their displeasure in places like an internet forum. To do so they are using electricity, a computer and an internet connection. I have asked more than one such person if they ride a hose to work each day or drive a car, that usually makes a solid point strait away.
Also please consider that things like bow drill fires, the sun compass, the spear, the atlatl and dead fall traps were at one time, “cutting edge technology”. So today we discuss some of my favorite technology resources and how I use them as part of my planning, prepping and to create lifestyle redundancy.
