Knowing how to tan a hide is a very important skill to know. Having the ability to tan hides has lots of benefits. Clothing, storage, and shelter to name a few.
If SHTF, there will be no new sheets, no new blankets being made or imported in. It will be up to us to stay warm and this is one of the best ways to stay warm.
Hides can be used to make clothes, insulate your bed, room, windows, etc.
Little rabbit hides can be stitched together with squirrel hides and in no time you could have a blanket that may just save your life.
As I said, this is a great skill to have in your survival tool chest. See a few ways you can do this at home.
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.
