Almost everyone has had that fantasy where you start a project, a job, a relationship, or even your life over with the knowledge you have now. It can be incredibly frustrating when you do something that, looking back on it, was obviously a mistake. If only you could start over! Hindsight is 20/20, especially if you’re a prepper.
Unfortunately, we can’t know everything and we can’t see the future, so the best we can do is learn from the mistakes of others. As Brandon Mull said, “Smart people learn from their mistakes. But the real sharp ones learn from the mistakes of others.” So if you’re a real sharp one, check out this article and be sure you don’t make the same mistakes I did.
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.

These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
