Good for you matey.
If you're on the Northeast coast, you will be very busy.
You can get a lot of tips from survivalblog, Rawles seems to know his stuff.
With your background, his blog will most likely just be a reminder for things you haden't thought to include.
Where is this gig located?

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

Congratulations JollyRoger!! hi5.gif
Hey, here's a little trick you might find useful. I grew up off the grid, and here in BC it gets bloody cold. -40 isn't unusual. So when it got that cold, we'd put a roll of toilet paper in an old tin can (we used tobacco tins, perfect size, but they're made of plastic now), soak it with diesel and put it under the belly pan of the vehicle. Cover the hood with a blanket, lite the toilet paper, it would burn all night and our vehicles always started.

That definitely works, but what happens when the toilet paper and the fuel run out?

I teach practical ways to survive. Man made tools are useful, but sometimes you don't have the luxury to use those things. Sometimes it's just you and the squirrels against the elements.

Good skills for sure. I think at that point a good sense of humor will keep you alive as much as your creativity.

LOL. No... I teach how to make fire too. From things that you find in your surroundings. Same with water filtration and sheltering.
