There may be as many survival myths out there as there are survival facts. In its purest form, survival is really only about a few things. That can get mixed up with all the daily content and the desire to produce more and more information on the subject.
From YouTube to the home pages of blogs people are talking about survival and some are doing a rough job at it. In this article we are going to explore three survival and prepping myths that lots of people mention but hardly explore.
You might find that you have heard or even believe one of these. If that’s the case, well, it might be time to reevaluate. Let us know if you have any other good survival myths.
Survival is Every Man for Himself
This was the old standard for preppers back in the day. We can look at all of the most recent disasters that have caused countless billions of dollars in damage. Its so rare that people scatter and start plotting against one another. Yes food is scarce, water and food, too. Still, communities come together and help one another.
Guns Will Be Crucial
While it will certainly help to have a gun that can protect you, you need to also settle up channels for communication and misunderstanding that don’t involve people dying. This is a very important part of civil society surviving.
No Point in Living Through SHTF
Many people believe there is no point in living through an SHTF scenario because of the bleak outlook. You see, most people think that the struggle to survive is just too much to deal with. Humans have such a strong will to live that we basically took over the whole world.
There are many survival and prepping myths, be sure that you don’t fall into them.
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.
