Survival Survey: What is the most helpful skill you’ve learned?
In the prepper world, skills are just about everything, even surpassing buckets of beans in importance. As one writer pointed out, what if everyone in your “survival group” is a computer programmer? Yep, you’re pretty much zombie bait.
So during the last 12 months, what has been the most important and helpful skill you’ve learned?
Baking homemade bread?
Learning different ways to start a fire?
For me, it was re-learning camping skills that had become rusty over the years. I think the most helpful thing we did as a family, was take a road trip through the northwest states, pitching our tent at a different location every night. In just a matter of a few days we were pros at setting up and taking down camp, fixing outdoor meals, and enjoying a completely different lifestyle, albeit temporarily. Now I know that our family is capable of living life unplugged from electronics, thinking on our feet, and quickly adapting to changes in weather, environment, and location. We also learned to work together as a team. Those are not only important survival skills, they’re also important attitudes.
How about you? What was the most significant skill you learned last year?
