"Where do I start?"

For someone just waking up to the need for preparation for the end of the world as we know it (TEOTWAWKI), the question "where do I start?" is a tough one. First of all, let me just say that simply waking up puts you ahead of at least 90% of the general public. But that alone is only step one and it won't keep you or your family alive. The most that will do is give you a little awareness of WHY you are dying beyond the obvious lack of food, water, shelter and security. The next step is to do some research. Getting a good baseline and foundation to learn from is key. Here are some of the resources that got me on the path after I woke up:

www.SurvivalBlog.com - This is the world's most popular survivalism website. It's run by James Wesley, Rawles and is one of the best sources of information on the subject. J.W. Rawles is the real deal.

How to Survive The End of The World As We Know It - This book is written by J.W. Rawles and is a generalized, simple and well laid out guide for new people looking to get into the culture.

How to Build the Perfect Bug Out Bag - This book is written by Creek Stewart. It's a great guide on how to put together your bag that will help you get out of dodge (G.O.O.D.) when the stuff hits the fan (SHTF). A good bug out bag (BOB) is very important.

www.SurvivalistBoards.com - A large and very active forum for survivalists, preppers, hunters, gun and knife enthusiasts and everyone in between. They have thousands of members from the US, Canada, Europe, Australia and many other locations and the members there have enlightened me more than any other resource I've found yet.

Needless to say, there are many other resources out there, but these are excellent to get you started on the path.
