Communications is one the most often overlook parts of prepping. This is very strange because of how much communications rule our lives. While the world looks to communications methods for everything we do, the idea doesn’t seem to carry over into prepping. This is because most preppers go from 0 to 100. They live in a world where there is tremendous help and news and things work well but they are ready to jump to lone wolf, me against the world mode in a second. There is room for a lot of grey area.
This article is all about Ham Radio. You see, before you make a decision to bugout or do something wild, you should consult as many forms of communication that you can. You really want to be as informed as possible before you head out into a fallen world. Don’t discount your access to comms.
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.
