Not even the smartest survivalists in the world know everything. If they suddenly found themselves in a survival situation, there would certainly be something that came up that they wouldn’t be sure how to handle. They’d need to do some research to figure out what to do, but out in the wild they wouldn’t be able to plug in a computer.
Bug-out bags barely have room for all of the essentials we need, let alone a heavy stack of 50 books on a wide variety of survival subjects that we might need. So, what’s the answer to this problem? How about a Kindle loaded with a survival library that you could grab at a moment’s notice?
Having a digital survival library at your fingertips would be pretty nifty, right? Among the many books you might want to consider downloading to your Kindle, as recommended by ArtofManliness.com, are How to Stay Alive in the Woods: A Complete Guide to Food, Shelter, and Self-Preservation Anywhere by Bradford Angier; Wilderness Survival by Gregory Davenport; U.S. Army Survival Manual FM 21-76; Back to Basics by Abigail Gehring; the Basic Safe Travel and Boreal Survival Handbook by Mors Kochanski; Outdoor Survival Skills by Larry Dean Olsen; and the U.S. Air Force Pocket Survival Handbook.
Of course, if you had to bug out, you’d use up a lot of batteries in a short period of time with a Kindle. If you know anybody who works for the company, tell them to create one that’s solar-powered. Then you’d really have a winner.
Do you have a Kindle in your bug-out bag? If so, do you have anything on it that might help you in a survival situation? Let me know. Thanks.
