Though much of the camping that happens in this nation is for the benefit of leisure its still a great opportunity. You will find yourself in the throes of a great opportunity to practice your self reliance and survival skills. No issue better presents itself than that of a rainstorm on your campsite. You will find that things get much more complicated when you add a little wind and water.
The author of this blog offers up several concrete ways to prepare your camping adventure for the rain. I was pleasantly surprised by some of these recommendations. I truly enjoyed this article because it also touches on the fundamentals of managing a shelter. But let’s not forget something as simple as packing a waterproof jacket. These are basic but very important lessons that can be learned and relearned all the time. Remember to maximize each situation you find yourself in. There is always opportunity to learn.
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.
