No it hasn't been a waste of time, life is all about learning. You've taught you family one of the most simpliest thing's to remember,
self-discipline. If we didn't have any self-discipline we would a very dis-organised civilisation.
Hunting skills and survivalist skills are good to keep alive and keep warm, stay cool, keep your sanity, build/construct, re-build from where we all
left off. I didn't hesitate to change career this year in early January. I've gone from an Mechanical Engineering background to Environmental
Conservation and studying this new course has enabled me to pick up many survivalist skills as a ranger throughtout the last 6 months, I am already
familiarised with identifying animal species, insect species, plant species, woodland, wetland, and dryland management, constructing shelters,
building fires, so much more, many bushcraft skills etc.
You want to try and get your family out for an all weekender doing Bushcraft skills, www.lakesideymca.co.uk...
This is in the UK however at the
YMCA they are a seperate organisation and are open all year annually, all day/everyday, 24/7. The bushcraft show is open once a year.
It's one of the largest sites in Europe. If you live in the states then have a look at this website, also one week holiday is best to benefit from, as
it would take about 7-9 hours flight to get here.
There are many event's held in Chilliwack a friend of mine who lives up in BC.
Hope that helps you and your family prepare.
