The life of a prepper is one of skill and planning. When you decide to become a prepper you must start to stock up on the necessary items to keep your family and home prepared for a crisis or emergency. You must also begin to cultivate the skills necessary to ensure the survival of you and your loved ones. There are some skills that are more important than others. If you want to be sure to survive an emergency situation then developing these skills is absolutely critical. Here are the two most important skills for you to develop first when you become a prepper and why you need them.
Properly Building a Fire
Fire is arguably the most important discovery of all time. Without fire it is arguable that our species would not have lasted very long. Fire allows us to cook, keep warm, signal others for help, and even warding off dangerous animals. You need to know how to properly structure the wood in your fire and what wood you need to use. Some woods burn longer and better than others so being certain of your materials is absolutely essential. You can learn more about firestarting at Patriot’s Closet.
You may not like the idea of having to defend yourself. After all, nobody likes violence. However, if you do not know how to properly wield a weapon, be it a firearm, bow and arrow, or crossbow then you could be putting your loved ones in danger. You do not have to have the best gun or best crossbow, you simply need to know how to use it properly.
