Do a good turn daily.


Be Prepared.

Yeah. I was a Scout.
Me too. It's where I learned a bunch about survival in the North. We had a great program back in the 1960's and early 70's. I did a lot of camping, especially in the fall, when things were a bit colder. We also learned to make snow shelters that would keep you warm in the coldest weather. It is a valuable organization. It's too bad that video games have replaced real-life training and experience, IMHO.

I have added Pandemic or any Nat'l Emergencies to the Search and Rescue section ~ DON'T PANIC of The Galactic Hitchhiker Resource.
The Galactic Hitchhiker Resource was inspired by the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams. It provides an infrormation resource to help you survive your journeys through time and space and a guide to hoopy cookies and other neat stuff to the Galactic Olympics and beyond ~ Galactic Hitchhiker Resource ~=O

http://community.webtv.net/Timeloyd/GALACTICHITCHHIKER

As you can make a fist and lign it up so the sun rests on it and counting fists till horizon you see the length of time till sunset this website wil provide all kinds of useful infromation to help survive. Well if it is not there let me know.
The first part is The Galactic Hitchhiker Resourse with all kinds of useful and survival infromation and is a great Galactic Resource.
From the Olympic Rings on is The Galactic Olympics entertainment part with the Earth Olympics down under with International Search Engines.
REMEMBER WHERE YOUR TOWEL IS
