TPE is a huge compilation of every preparedness resource you'll likely ever need, composed in a presentable and easy to search format. It contains everything from water to shelter to communications and even entertainment which will give you a significant edge in surviving any disaster you may face.
My aim is to cover a huge range of the topics you MAY need rather than covering just the basics like preparedness and survival. These other categories such as electricity, crafting, leadership and language are there if you need them because you can never predict when or where disaster will strike. To keep the file size down I only have pictures that are vital and try to explain the topic in detail where necessary to avoid excess pictures.

If you would like the excel version with additional features such as hyperlinks please donate five dollars or more to the cause and you'll receive the(.XLSM) file. I don't want people choosing this file instead of the PDF as it's MUCH slower on mobile devices and even some desktops. Donations only get you the current excel file and not all releases from then on.
For those of you who are security minded, below are the checksums for the file to help ensure it's genuine and the same file I created:

It's been a while since your last release
I aim to release TPE around once every 3 months but sometimes I just get so busy that I don't get much time to work on it and it doesn't feel like it's worth releasing a new version yet. Check back next month as I try not to skip more than one month in a row, or join the mailing list to receive an email every new version.
