13 Steps To A Better Survivalist And Prepper
While this post at More Than Just Surviving is aimed at survivalists, these steps can also be applied to prepping. Number 7 on their list is a good example.
7. Incorporate survivalism into your everyday life.
Put what you’ve learned to good use by incorporating it into your life. Take regular camping trips, start barbecues with firesteels, make pine needle tea in the evenings, go mushroom hunting and herb scavenging around your area for ingredients to use in your kitchen – use that knowledge you have as regularly as possible so you won’t forget it!
For preppers, it’s not enough to just stockpile loads of supplies. You have to know how to prepare those supplies. For instance, did you know that raw kidney beans are poisonous and have to be boiled vigorously for 10 minutes before cooking? Do you know how to make bread with all that flour you’ve stored? Can you cook a meal from scratch? By incorporating these prepping skills into your everyday life, you’ll be more prepared than just stockpiling supplies – and you’ll save money!
Number 9 on their list is “Work on your weaknesses”. Think about your prepping skills and figure our where you are weak. For most people that might be First Aid. If so, read some books or better yet, take a First Aid class.
Be sure and read their entire post and see how you can adapt their 13 steps to your prepping life.
