Its Sunday morning… my time… It is really 1:48 pm but I have been exhausted lately and needed to catch up on some much needed sleep.
I left off with how being in good physical shape is important. Just as important as that though is keeping your brain in good mental health. Sleep and proper nutrition aid in keeping the brain a well oiled machine. With that said, lets continue on with the list!
6. Stay knowledgeable. Learn as much as you can about survival before any event actually happens. Jack Spirko has compiled a list of books that he recommends when learning about survival –> Jack Spirko’s survival book list. Knowing a modern survival philosophy is a good idea and Jack has compiled a good list of rules to try and live by –> Modern Survival Philosophy.
7. Practice. Once you learn some basic skills… like shelter and fire building, go out in the woods and practice building a fire without any matches or flint. Build a shelter in the woods and sleep in it for a night. Learn what works best and what doesn’t. When learning about survival, hiking through the woods will take on a new meaning. You will be scanning the area for possible shelter locations and edible plants. Learning these skills will gain you a deeper appreciation for nature and help you feel comfortable in those surroundings.
8. Firearms. Have them and if you can afford it lots of them! Know how to shoot them, reload… etc. Most importantly always double tap!
I hope that will help you get you started on journey of survivalism and gaining a deeper appreciation for nature. To dive deeper into this topic make sure to check out the Survival Podcast.
