LOL... I have my moments...both ways :o)
If it is web info you are looking for, try these:
This guy is a long time, close friend. The real deal. I have worked with him training various spec-ops and gov't alphabet agencies in real world, shit-hits-the-fan scenarios. Will def take you out of your comfort zone, make you think and reveal the chinks in your personal armor...that's what it's all about, right?
If you prefer the more laid back approach and are interested in discovering your more primal self.
Another good friend and respected mentor. Native American skills and philosophy at their finest...Good luck in your journey!
I write a fictional survival blog that includes survival and preparedness tips and ideas as well as a fairly entertaining (I've been told) story.
The setting is the Midwest, beginning in November of 2014, following a global economic crash.

Lots of good sources already listed.
Just remember that on a long enough time line the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.
wilderness survival, a passion that started while involved w/ my son's boy scout troop that has progressed to (according to my wife) near obsession. Acquiring ideas and tricks from forums or fellow campies, I'll test them in the field for practicality. Recently, I've logged countless hours and blisters perfecting my fire by friction skills using only the hand drill method and what materials work best in my area.
I'm a big fan of Dave Canterbury's Pathfinder school. He has many videos demonstrating gear, techniques, kits, and lots of other stuff.
Check out Bushcraft books by Ray Mears, Richard Graves, and Mors L. Kochanski. All great books about skills that will not only help you survive but allow you to live quite comfortably in wilderness environments.
