Do you know the most basic skills you need for survival? Even if you have been preparing by purchasing all sorts of different pieces of gear and goodies from the web, that doesn’t mean you really know how to survive. It simply means you know how to shop online and use gadgets. You need to cultivate real skills that are essential for surviving in the wild.
One of the first skills you need to know is how to make fire. This doesn’t mean striking a match or using a lighter. You should learn how to make fire using several different methods, including primitive methods such as the bow and drill. In addition, you need to understand how to procure water. Learn how to make various water traps that can catch condensation, and which should be clean enough to drink without boiling.
In addition, you need to learn how to make a shelter. You can’t survive in the wild for very long if you don’t have a shelter. You can’t just hope that you will get lucky enough to find a cave or an abandoned house. Learn to make different types of shelters, such as lean-tos.
Of course, you are going to be getting hungry as well if you are doing all of that survival work. You can’t simply walk down to the local grocery store and pick up the food you need. Instead, you need to learn how to forage and hunt for your food. You also need to learn how to not be picky when it comes to what’s on the menu. In some cases, it might be bugs and worms for dinner. It might not be very appetizing, but it is survival.
These are skills that you need to learn, and not just read about. Get out and learn them and practice them now. This way, you will have the confidence needed in a real survival situation.
