I entered the Survival Blog’s writing contest and my entry was posted today. I’ve been thinking about writing on phsical fitness as a survival skill for awhile now. So when I decided to enter the contest it was the first thing on my mind.
When people talk about preparedness they often focus on the stuff they need. Food, water, guns, and ammo. But they don’t often think about what they need to know and the skills they need to have. Having 50 pounds of flour doesn’t do you any good if you can’t cook bread. Having a rifle with 10,000 rounds of ammo doesn’t help if you can’t shoot. And a first aid kit does little good if you don’t know CPR or how to treat a wound.
A skill is something you have to practice to get good at and stay good at. What skills do you need to learn and practice?
