I found a cool DIY project I think everyone would enjoy, pre and post SHTF. A DIY wood burning sauna. Cool right? This project will not cost you an arm or a leg or a gym membership either, you could find a lot of the items needed on craigslist.
I would even go as to search forums and online salvage websites for free wood to build the hut, even a good old pallet or two would work well.
Check out this cool project below, if you ever get around to making it, please, please post pics, I may even attempt this when I find the time!
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.
