Pumping water may not seem like a priority today. It may seem a little silly even. You are getting all the water you need from your tap, right? The tap is an endless source of clean water that never goes away. Is that a stretch or what? For a long time we have been using tap water and wasting tap water for all sorts of tasks. I am never surprised at how we have changed so much to depend on something so fragile. What happens when that water shuts off? Are you prepared to deal with that? I certainly hope so.
One of the best ways to deal with that is having a water pump and a well. Suddenly you can pull water out of the ground! This article is about a ram pump and what we love about those is the fact that they require no electricity.
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.
