I had a wide-ranging conversation on unusual preps with prepper author Ron Foster.  Foster has published 62 prepping books (!), including his latest, Old Farts Survival Guide. This is a great book on prepping skills, and despite the $25 pricetag, it is well worth it and should be included in every serious prepper’s library. This book is also something you could leave on your living room coffee table, and because of the number of photos and diagrams in it, many of your family members will thumb through the book and quickly learn some prepping skills.
