Low-technology items that are very useful but don't necessarily depend on electronics and electricity to function. Also these items are intended or can be built with non-electrical hand tools. These items or methods can be implemented with materials laying around.The idea behind this collection is answering the question: How do we survive, cope and thrive in a world without relying on electrical power from the grid? NOTE: in order for these ideas to be useful should you really need them, say after a nasty solar fare that takes out the electrical grid and consequently running water, you should print the PDFs on paper, bind them, and put the book in a safe place. You will not likely have power, after some time, to view the PDFs on your devices.
