A lot of people have this idea of living as a mountain man, just with a family or solo. I take a different tack.
I'm a former Ranger medic. I get with people in my community and I have people that I can count on if it all hits the fan.
My responsibilities include, knowing how to make penicillin, training in basic marksmanship, doing house calls, etc.
I know guys who are metallurgists. I know guys who know how to grow crops. We also continue our education. I'm in college right now, but over the next few months, I'll be learning British Literature, and how to brew beer and wine to further our abilities. That way, I'll be the combat medic and the brew master for our community in the worst case scenario.
Don't think individual, think community in all things.
I may know how to treat a bullet wound, and the guy next to me can forge steel. Neither one of us can do the others' job with any sort of competence. If you can forge steel, treat wounds, brew beer, make rope, plant crops, know the times and conditions to do all of the above, then you are a super genius. For the rest of us, teams are a better idea.edit on 4-6-2011 by 43mike because: (no reason given)

So, yeah fluffy and patches would be used for the greater good of the group...just cook it up in a stew and not say what meat it is...if its a EOTWAWKI than I doubt anyone would even care or think to ask...since food would be very valuable.
