Look, I know not everyone is going to get excited about creating an Amish knot rag rug, or toothbrush rug.
If you are taking that position then you are just not appreciating the skill itself. You have to be aware of the fact that this pattern is not left to making rag rugs alone.
There is magic in creating clothing and garments. While it doesn’t live in the same vein as something like shooting high powered rifles it can be just as critical skill.
To become a master and to really be able to adapt to any situation requires a diverse collection of skills that make it all come together in a time of need.
Are you ready for such a task? Are you too close-minded to appreciate the Amish knot rag rug?
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.
