Many people concentrate on stockpiling necessary supplies, without taking the corresponding time to stockpile the essential skills to go with them. Without the skills, those supplies may not do you any good.
Those who don’t want to study say, I have all the information in books. Would you have the skills and resources to survive if modern conveniences suddenly disappeared? Many survival sites have excellent articles on skills that can help you make it through a limited amount of time when everyday life is totally disrupted. However, what exactly does a person do IF the society fails to recover for an extended period of time, if ever again? What IF civilization implodes and only begins to recuperate after centuries have passed? If you watch some of the ideas people have on survival being interviewed on television, you have to wonder what exactly these people are thinking.
The people that have prepared for problems with the world are woefully ready for any disaster lasting for more than a few days at best. Even for those that have invested in years worth of food and supplies, there are some basic survival skills that need to be learned and understood to better increase one’s chance of making it through a possible long-term survival situation. Each of these skills can fill an entire article by its own, so only a brief description of each of these will be discussed in this article to avoid pages long descriptions. Think you have what it takes to make it, if the lights go out? Check out Bioprepper’s top 10 skills below:
