Rare September Tornado in Seattle

Podcasts that I recommend you listen to:

Turn your daily commute into ‘Drivetime University’, listen while cooking or doing dishes, and definitely turn your workouts into podcast time. With time, you will learn which podcast tends to be best for what activity.
Knowledge, experience, and attitude are the most valuable assets you can have when it comes to being self sufficient. However, owning some equipment or stocking up on some supplies can speed up the process and makes things a lot more enjoyable for you.

Here are some good lists of equipment, tools, and other supplies that I have found online:
