More books that may/may not appeal.

Anyone read any of these. They look like they're worth reading to me.

I haven't read any of those. One I'm reading right now is The Natural Navigator by Tristan Gooley. It's very interesting--teaches you how to find your way through the world without using GPS systems, compasses, or even maps. The website has some of the information but the book is more complete, and very well written.

Thanks for the tips. Better Off looks like a very interesting read. I'll have to pick that up. The Natural Navigator sounds like a good idea as well. Appeals to my survivalist side.

EDIT: and as a longtime motorcycle rider as well, Aerostich absolutely rocks.

Aerostitch does rock, and the owner (Mr. Subjective) also rides a bicycle. Between his suggestions and the ones I've found here I've got a long list of books to read.
