Well, howdy everyone. I got in my hands a book that my long-time friend from Mississippi sent me quite a few years ago as we were talking about preparation and survival skills. He sent me one of the books called The Foxfire Book.
This is a craft that many have forgotten throughout generations which is sad, for if something ever happens, either by a major solar flare that will knock out our power grid to contamination in all water supplies, how will the people survive if they do not learn through the pioneer times? I am so thankful to live out in the country, and hopefully one day own my own land to expand on my survival skills as homesteading. Right now, though I live out in the country, I live in a mobile home that is in a park with 8 other mobile homes. Yep, not a big park! 🙂
This subject of learning the crafts of our pioneer ancestors have been one that I hold close to my heart. There is so much to learn, to practice as well. But each day, I do learn. If you have never read this book and there are more in the series, try to do so. You can find it I’m sure at local libraries, or even getting it on Amazon. Another good book is Lights Out by David Crawford. Here is a fiction story that shows when an EMP blast occurs and how a group of people learn by trial and error on survival without power. The Fema Camps, the desperate measures people will go to in stealing some of your stockpile etc.
So, in conclusion to this blog, let us all learn techniques in survival, in preparing and learning ways of our ancestors. For trials and tribulations is fast approaching… just take a look at the news.
