Today we’re looking at some more survival knowledge from around the web, and I’ve included some commentary to assist you in choosing ones that may interest you.
From dirttime.com: Being Alone in the Wilderness
This article was unique in that it wasn’t about finding plants, scouring an area for food or any other of the common survival skills. Instead it deals wholly with just how off-putting being by yourself in the silence can be. It can change your perceptions of time and enhance your awareness in some ways, bringing you “in the now” without the distractions of others to pull you away. We’re such social animals that we often struggle to have a little silence and quiet in our modern lives, so it’s interesting to consider the potential effects of being completely without human company for a day, week, or even month at a time.
From paulkirtley.co.uk: Making a Tin-Can Candle
This article is great for several reasons. It gives you another light source to work with when the power is out, it lets you reuse other candles, and it minimizes waste by profitably reusing old candle stubs and the like. When it comes to a perfect prepping item, this is certainly it. Not only that, but it’s a great low-cost solution for those who simply couldn’t afford to stock dozens of candles, since you can just reuse the older stubs and make them into another candle. Definitely a great DIY project to check out!
From modernsurvivalblog: It’s Time to Bug Out But Where Will You Go?
Well isn’t that an interesting question? Frankly, it’s one that often goes unanswered, or else the answers are poorly researched and rely more on bravado than real planning. Although you can read the details for yourself in the article, one overall thing that stood out to me was the necessity for any kind of plan. Trying to make a break for it by wandering about all willy-nilly makes no sense and definitely results in greater problems on the road.
From thesurvivalmom.com: Wild Violets: 10 Ways to Put Them to Use
This helpful article highlights the common wild violet and how it can help you during a survival situation. Medical uses, food uses, as well as helpful harvesting and identification tips are all included in this article. Weeds are pretty much impossible to truly eradicate, so it makes sense to take the time to use them rather than fretting when a few break through the barriers you’ve set on your lawn.
