The vote is in and this semester for Prepper School we are going to be studying Survival Skills!
Survival Skills cover a wide range of topics, and can really encompass most preparedness subjects.
SURVIVAL SKILLS (as defined by Wikipedia) – “are techniques a person may use in a dangerous situation (e.g. natural disasters) to save themselves or others. These techniques are meant to provide basic necessities for human life: water, food, shelter, habitat, the ability to think straight, to signal for help, to navigate safely, to avoid unpleasant interactions with animals and plants, and cure any present injuries. Survival skills are often basic ideas and abilities that ancient humans have used for thousands of years. Hiking, backpacking, horseback riding, fishing, hunting and many other outdoor activities all require basic wilderness survival skills to handle an emergency situation. Bushcraft and primitive living are most often self-implemented, but require many of the same skills.”
We will only be covering a fraction of what is listed in the survival skills definition above!
First, to get a better understanding of how everything is divided up here’s a quick description of what’s in each category of the blog (or will be soon)!
- FOOD & WATER – This is for immediate survival, you can only go a few days without food, and especially water.
- EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS– This includes things you can do now to be ready for an emergency – anything from natural disasters to medical emergencies.
- SURVIVAL SKILLS – This category will cover skills that help you survive long-term, and allow you to become more self-reliant.
Make sure to tune in each Thursday as we cover some of the survival skills below:
- Home & Self-Defense
- Gardening & Homesteading
- Powerless & Off Grid Cooking
- Financial Preparedness
- Hunting & Processing Meat
I’ll be throwing in a few other areas that reader’s have requested during the next few months, but the main focus will be on the different survival skills mentioned above.
Extra credit if you print off this “1st Day of Prepper School” sign and take a picture with it ;)
Hopefully, you can act a little more excited than my son did before heading off for his 1st day of school!
See you Thursday! Get ready to dig out your learning cap and put it on!
