Water is the most essential thing we need for life. Without water we will die within 3 days.
Knowing how to install a water well is vital if not the most essential knowledge we could ever have stored in our brain.
Having a well dug and installed can easily cost you over 10k dollars. Even more, if they have to dig deeper.
Now, digging a well isn’t easy work, quite opposite actually. The end results of fresh drinking water outweigh the back-breaking digging though.
Building a well isn’t as hard as we all think. I found a brilliant article over at offthegridnews with instructions on how to install your own well.
Print this info off and put it in your emergency binder for later use if you can’t build one right now.
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.
