A couple of my friends are having some trouble getting started - if you like my blog (very specific towards flashlights), perhaps a photography blog would be up your alley?
And if you're more into the fitness side of Apocalypse Preparedness, maybe you should look more closely at a fitness regime like P90X. Here's a personal touch on how to get started, and a play by play (ongoing) of someone's own experiences:
I'll have more on flashlights tomorrow. I'm thinking Rechargeables vs Primaries for which batteries you should be running in which lights. Sometimes one, sometimes the other - runtime versus convenience, cell sizes, diameters, protected and unprotected circuitry, things of that nature. If you have a specific topic you'd like to discuss, please comment. :)
