Almost everyone has at least one tin can somewhere in their home. Most preppers have lots of them, but even non-preppers are bound to have a can of beans or something. Because of this, you shouldn’t have much trouble finding a tin can after the SHTF (just look in the trash if you have to).
Why does this matter? Because tin cans have all sorts of survival uses. You can use them to catch prey, cook food, filter water, signal for help, and much more. Learn the many uses for tin cans now because they could come in handy someday.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
