Very good and thank you. I loved the part where they show you how to find water.
Also, they have a very good Survival Skills Quiz.
I recommend it. It's 20 questions long but i find it fun.
I didn't know there was a quiz...
Ima look into that... after I finally get some sleep.
I can't stress enough the importance of alternative food sources, unfortunately, most everyone i talk to looks at me as tho i have a tree branch
growing out of my forehead when i tell them of the food that they poison/pull out of their lawns.
This site has a plethora of information of wild edibles widely available.
Food not lawns is another good site.
Replace most of your grass with "weeds" and supplement your diet until that day we have to leave the cities.
I understand... I have a lot of kids in my family. A little brother, sister, and about fifty little cousins. I try to teach them stuff, maybe see how
willing they'd be to eat a worm or something... so far, no luck.
That's pretty cool info, though. Little bits of knowledge can make all the difference later on.
Keep in mind (OP), that you won't likely have access to online info in a SHTF scenario. Even your smartphone, that kids today are so hung up on, is
likely to become a paperweight. So, a good idea to have that info in a printed format.
Yeah, but I have a pretty photographic memory, and I'm only really teaching myself (when I try to get my friends or the kids in my family in on it,
they rarely care what I have to say, so why bother teaching them?). I ant to study it like school work... study it until I know it second nature. Like
Still, it'd probrably be a good idea to print it as a back up. I have a huge portfolio of conspiracy theories & survival stuff I printed out at my
school, but it's currently collecting dust in a storage unit.
You're young though, plenty of time (most likely) to prepare when you're older. I know it sounds strange, but man, don't get caught up in the whole
prepper thing before you actually live your life and enjoy life and your youth. And if you don't have the means to prep...well, make friends with
someone who IS! I have a few younger folks that have done just that. Sure, it's kind of jokingly, but they do know, realistically, that if a SHTF
event happened, they could come here and join us, and we'd get through it all together.
I've thought about that. I've thought, what if nothing happens? I waste my life prepping so nothing can happen... but, better safe than sorry. Besides
that, I don't prep compulsively. I do it as a hobby. Besides, I have virtually no budget right now, and my fiance is busting his arse to set things up
for both of us.
He's alternative, like me, but he's old school. He wants to do the work while I stay home. I'm fine with that, but I don't want to sit in the house
and do nothing but consume and gain weight... I wanna DO something.
So, I prep.
