Survival PreparednessSurvival preparedness requires many skills and realistically you will never be fully prepared for every scenario possible. It can save you a lot of time if you focus learning skills and techniques that are more familiar in your region and skill set. If you live in the desert, you won’t be training to build snow caves to sleep in, but I think you get my point. I think some of the core skills you need to learn in order to call your self “prepared” would be building shelter, collecting water, catching food, and basic first aid. At least this might be the minimum requirement in my mind. There are a bunch more skills the would be helpful with survival preparedness, like how to start a fire, or collecting oil from the meat your cooking, or how to build a fishing net. Knowing how to prepare food for long term storage is a good idea too. Learn how to sprout and plant seeds, learn how to grow and harvest the crop. Do you know how to harvest seeds from a plant for replanting next season?
Your Survival PreparednessTake a look at your current skill set. What skills do you currently posses that will help you in your goal of survival preparedness? It’s helpful to know where you stand in the terms of skills. If you have a small foundation in one area, start there. Work at building up the skill to a more successful level, then once you are comfortable with it, move to the next one. Once you have established a good foundation of skills, concepts, techniques, plans, ideas, etc, teach it to others. If you have a family, teach some of the basic concepts and skills to them. Children love learning, teach them a new skill they can use. What are some of the core skills you believe are important to survival preparedness?
