Where can I get one of you? Only kidding, you would be extremely useful to any group of people.
Well done you. I feel ashamed as I'm unable to do most of that other than, knowing how to create fire and shelter and ofcourse the common sense which I was raised with, which in my case was what I can and can't eat in my 'local' area.

I am single.
I am not too worried though because:
I have several "equalizers" if you know what I mean and know how to use them,
blood and gore doesnt bother me much anymore,
I also have made it a point to learn self defense techniques and stay in excellent shape,
I am already bugged out for the most part
I will be a valuable member of any group because I:
am an herbalist- I know almost all the wild edibles and medicinals in my woods here and how to use them,
hunt and fish and have for years, (I hunt with both rifle and bow),
know how to tan animal skins and hides, and know the uses for all parts of the animal,
have a good amount of commodities cached, so they are nearby but not apparent,
make excellent wine,
am 50 years old so not the most "desirable" of the girlys, lol
am an excellent cook and prepare delicious game as well as other foods,
am pretty even tempered, have outgrown drama and am pretty cool in the face of tragedy and disaster.
Really, the only reason for having a man around (for me) would be for companionship...and occasionally getting the tight lids off of jars.
ETA I started preparing myself for a SHTF scenario more than 10 years ago, and have spent much time since then learning skills and preparing for the worst...it doesnt come overnight!edit on 18-5-2011 by Elostone because: (no reason given)

Its nice to think about survival from the comfort of ones computer but do you guys really know what kind of animals will be unleashed once law and order is disolved? Not only will you have people out there that will do what they have to do to feed their family, think about the kinds of people in prison right now? If you have any idea of what prison is like, imagine no guards. I don't care what kind of Billy Bad @ss you think you are, you won't make it a week as a lone wolf. Man or woman; you better group up as soon as possible.
