Mmm, vodka, one of my all time favorite alcoholic beverages. I like vodka because of its ability to be mixed with pretty much any other drink to create a wonderful, drunk inducing drink.
I must have had my head in the sand all my life because I never knew you could make your own Vodka at home. Apparently it is super easy to do and way stronger than the store bought bottles.
You can make your own vodka and store it as a barter item. Alcohol will be in short supply and in a SHTF situation, people will be desperate to get away from all the calamity and chaos, so alcohol will be top on peoples to get list.
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.
