Technology gives you an edge. You may not like the idea if you are a hardcore bushcrafter but its the truth. In a disaster there is nothing like having some strong tech on your side. An old laptop has tremendous value because, if nothing else, it can host an entire prepping library. Everything you could ever need or want to know about preparedness can be found on a simple, small hard drive. Through PDFs and eBooks or even downloaded videos you can have the knowledge you need to survive a disaster all wrapped up in one machine. Find an off grid solution for powering that laptop and you will really have something then.
This is a great little article that is born of the tech niche. What is important to understand is that all niches funnel back to prepping and when you consider the effectiveness of tech in our preps you will quickly understand that.
