This week we have a bit of news and then we talk about tips for survival.

 In Part I of the show is about what to bring for life support on worlds that have already had an initial survey. We discuss what kind of equipment is important for surviving potentially hostile environments and we list several key pieces of equipment that will help you to this end.

 In Part II of the show we discuss the art of first contact. We mainly go over concepts of do’s and don’ts but we also cover some of the major pitfalls that one should consider before even stepping through the ring.

    Trust me on these… a lot of this equipment is in my Real-Life packing list for field operations (currently serving in 2nd Infantry Division).

    Guys, love the podcast. I have not fiddled with FW in years and years, but these episodes are bringing back such memories that I’m tempted to order the new version (the wallet cringes)!

    Great to hear from you Fred. Seriously? $19.95 is a lot these days? Christmas is coming. Put it on your gift list. Just a suggestion.

    We will try to continue to entice :)

    Hah. I’ve been underemployed/unemployed since I was let go shortly after 9/11. But I will ask Santa again, nicely!
