Learning Survival Skills, Techniques and Planning

By Donna Miller 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.

Although I would not classify what our family does as being ‘Survivalists’, we do factor that portion of planning and preparing into our ‘Prepping’ lifestyle.

The CDC has websites dedicated to trying to help ‘calm the fears’ of those who don’t know what to do or are worried about loved ones. This is the calmest ‘practice’ we could have for an epidemic. Swine flu has been here and handled before.  I believe our efforts for preparation are getting tested.

We have had many people flooding our store with calls and emails feeling the need to stock up during these uncertain times. I can honestly say, we’ve seen this coming for a while and are now on the cusp of more people feeling the need to prepare. hi-def quality gnomeo & juliet download Preparation can be handled in a few different ways: · Stock piling out of fear or panic. · Hiding goods for ‘someday’. · Daily learning/practicing of skills and planning We see so many people react out of fear or panic that it is much like the preverbal chicken with its […]
