Most people today have an abundance of electronics they rely on for just about everything. They have electronics that help them navigate when they are in their vehicle, they have electronic fish finders, and all manner of items that have made life, including survival, much easier.
However, if you are relying on your electronics and you have not taken the time to develop your actual skills as a survivalist, you are in for a world of trouble. Whether it is an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) that wipes out electronics, or your electronics simply run out of juice when you need them, you have to think about what you would do when you no longer have access. Are you really going to be able to survive without them?
If you have relied on your electronics to help you get from Point A to Point B when you are driving, or even when you are in the woods, it is high time that you learned how to read maps and compasses. If you have electronic devices to show you little images of where the fish are in the lake, learn the behavior of different fish species to have a natural knowledge of where they might be hanging out at different times of the year.
Make a list of the gadgets that you have for survival or everyday use. Then, in a separate column, write down the skill that you will need to develop in order to replace that gadget in your life. Now, learn that skill. It’s as simple as that.
Different types of gadgets can be great for emergencies, and it is perfectly fine to have as many as you like. Just make sure you have the skills to back it all up when the power goes out.
