    One thing you'll find is that he tracked wind movements, looking for the areas of the country that would have the lowest fall-out count.

    If memory serves, he settled in Eugene, Oregon, where he died, I believe.

    most of the charts and maps concerning the nuke warfare are totally obsolete - most are from the nuke hay days of the 1960-70s - targets change for various reasons - the global politics alone have drastically altered targeting - and there's more precise targeted nukes around than ever ....

    Turning a basement into a safe room for either a nuclear event or a tornado... Check out this guys faux panty. Awesome. It looks like a panty, but you can push the doors open and go downstairs.

    Here's a pretty awesome do it yourself idea. I bet my brother would do this with me. Think of what it would cost to have this built by a professional.

    trouble is that a prepper prepares for a "nuclear event" and not just a full nuke exchange >>>> and the world has experienced several major events that were/could be eazily survived - latest in Japan ...

    quite a bit of crossover prepping between pandemics and nukes - definitely would be prepared for the very probable disease spread during a serious SHTF ....

    This is good to know. But in viewing the works of Mr. Tappan, obviously he lived--and died--in the period you mention. Perhaps a new dedicated prepper should view his work and update it for modern citizens.

    Just the new technology would take up most of this book. For example, while gasoline might be scarce in "Dystopia America," we now have portable generators for all-electric cars. We have modern crossbows that break +400 FPS. Any idiot can buy bulletproof vests.

    I have "common" knives that can punch through any medium you can name. Most of these alloys were owned and used exclusively by the government until recently. Heck, I sell this stuff, and I cannot figure out these mystery, super metals.

    For example, I just bought a few super fast folders. If I could get into a time machine and go back to the 1960s, the fanboys would marvel at the display. I pay only 40 bucks for these toys, which converts to under four dollars in that time period.

    My point is simple. Time marches on, and technology doubles every four years. We need a modern version of Mr. Tappan.

    it's not only technology but just change in policy and tactics to update for current world situations - the USAF ended the full alert SAC bombers years ago >>> now they are back again with an even more aggressive strike program .... NORAD moved out of Cheyenne Mt for years and with the new Russian aggression did a full facility technology update and moved to the underside again ...

    what was recently laughable - the Russians recently threaten us with a nuke strike - at least two of the targets were years/decade out of date closed down military bases >>>> even they aren't up to date with the propaganda ....

    @Illini Warrior, I'm glad you post as you do. You are quite correct, I'm more on the "technology" side of the aisle. If a guy wanted a knife that could punch through Kevlar and never rust in his lifetime, I could probably find that prepper an easy half-dozen.

    Now, what I am not familiar with is tactics and modern situations. For example, Wisconsin has a fairly 'liberal' (and I mean that in its best sense) policy for weapons, including a CCW provision and making switchblades legal for over +2 years. In fact, I just read an article in the latest "Blade" magazine about the Draconian measures New York City has for any folder the law deems as a 'switchblade.' That includes gravity knives and any other folder that can be opened with a flick of the wrist. Heck, most older and worn folders will flip open. They made it sound like the State was using folders as a "cash cow." Find a guy with a folder--even if he uses it for working--and you have a quick and easy fine due the court.

    I read that article with a legal switchblade in my pocket.
