Most people don’t even give survival a second thought. To many survival means having air conditioning and cable TV. But what is real survival and what techniques are needed to know or skills and planning are involved if one were to have to survive, say without shelter or a grocery store close by?
Potentially the list of survival skills could be endless but the top category that I see would be to find what is right for your surroundings and climate. If you are above a certain elevation only certain crops are specific to your area. If you live where animals were once the major inhibitors of an area and you suddenly have to survive outdoors, it would be prudent to learn how to cohabit-ate and deal with the local coyote or black bear.
No matter what skills or techniques one may study, until they are practiced, there is no way to be sure all the planning has paid off. Planning is one thing, doing is the proving ground. Practice to see what loop-holes there may be so you can truly survive if necessary.
Best Blessings and enJOY the journey!
