In an emergency I think even the experts will need a little extra help to truly survive. If you are a gear hog (someone who has all the gadgets, survival items and food) you may be quite literally missing out on the alternative “survival” gear available in your own home!
Some of these tips are just pure genius and however silly they look now, if you had nothing but just this knowledge you will have a better chance of survival. Check them out and tell me your favorite.
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.
