17 Lost Survival Skills Your Ancestors Had
Prepping to survive after a major disaster is so much more than stockpiling supplies. If we ever face an end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it scenario, we’re going to need much more than supplies if we want to rebuild society. We’re going to need skills.
Farming, blacksmithing, woodworking… These types of skills were fairly commonplace in the 1800’s. But today only a tiny percentage of people know how to do these things. And it’s those people who will lead the way after society collapses. If you want to be a true survivalist, then you need to be the type of person who could go back in time to the pioneer days and get along just fine. If your ancestors could do it, so can you.
