Well, let me tell you a little story. I like to wear my jackets until they no longer keep me warm.
I spend at least 100 bucks on my jackets, I want waterproof, windproof and warm. The only thing that gets me every time is the zipper.
I have 2 jackets I LOVE, I haven’t worn them in 3 years because the zipper wouldn’t work. Now they are going to be worn again, all because I found this article.
Check out these couple of videos, and this Lifehacker article for more info.
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.
