About this title

Synopsis:

Could it be that, 30 years after they formed the vanguard of the American social revolution, the "hippies" of the 1960s can offer sage advice on the looming Y2K computer bug crisis?

In this authoritative handbook, "The Hippy Survival Guide to Y2K," author Mike Oehler says yes, they can. He's a '60s hippy who holds dear the philosophies that led him to a self-sufficient, back-to-the-land life in rural Idaho. In a readable and anecdotal style, supported by exhaustive research, Mike explores the possibility that on January 1, 2000, a simple programming error will cause disastrous computer crashes around the world.

With a focus on strategies for surviving the disruption of social services, Mike has packed this book with information on how to: Get clean water if water systems fail, stay warm in January if the heat goes off, find free food at any time in the city or country, find the safest places to live, build a shelter that will take you through anything, and much more.

Oehler applies his own years of experience to this highly readable handbook for Y2K survival - served up with his philosophy about the improvement of modern society. The good news behind Y2K, whether it proves to be a tragedy or merely a tempest in a teapot, is that it may cause many of us to live our lives more deliberately and independently.

The Year 2000 is coming. The time to think about "what if?" is now, with this practical and thought-provoking guide.

From the Back Cover:

Are you really ready for Y2K? What if you roll out of bed on the morning of January 1, 2000, to find your electricity is off? What if your faucets are dry? What if your phone is dead, trains and planes don't run, banks and stores are closed - and even the government is shut down?

In this authoritative handbook, survival expert Mike Oehler takes an in-depth look at the "what if?" of the Y2K Problem. In a readable and anecdotal style, supported by exhaustive research, Mike explores the possibility that on January 1, 2000, a simple programming error will cause disastrous computer crashes around the world.

With a focus on strategies for surviving the disruption of social services, Mike has packed this book with information on how to:

Get clean water if water systems fail

Stay warm in January if the heat goes off

Find free food at any time, in the city or the country

Find the safest places to live

Build a shelter that will take you through anything

And much, much more

For more than 30 years Mike, a self-described back-to-the-land hippy, has lived an intentionally simple life on his Idaho homestead. Here he applies his own years of experience to this highly readable handbook for Y2K survival - served up with his philosophy about the improvement of modern society. The Year 2000 is coming. The time to think about "what if?" is now, with this practical and thought-provoking guide.
