One of the most important things is where to find salt. Salt is a must for survival. Most arm chair survivalists will list water, food, shelter, etc. but will leave out salt. Sodium is needed for most functions. We never give it any thought because our normal diets are so full of it that we live in excess but when eating naturally there is very little to be found. Learn to make food such as blood pudding, and things of this sort. Blood is high in sodium but most people can't find it palatable. It can also be found in hickory roots. If you happen to live near the ocean then you can boil water down to get salt, otherwise you have to get creative.
That's interesting. So how did the indians who lived in the interior areas get enough salt???
What are all the skills you'd need to live deep in the woods???
