FK – What is gear without the skills to use it? How much skill does it take to crawl into a proper sleeping bag? Not a lot unless you don’t know to shed your wet under clothes and store them next to your body so they’ll dry.
Our ancestors had ‘minimalist’ lifestyles because they were impoverished. Once I made the mistake of asking my grandmother what the great depression was like. This after a lifetime of hearing the old folks talk about how not so good the old days were.
She looked at me like I was crazy and said, “Depression? What depression? We were already poor.”
If some scenario devolves into a long term issue you’ll need to know how to make clothing from leather, if you can obtain it, from whatever source. Have you read/seen the book/movie ‘The Road?’ That’s where all this is headed.
Tools will come from natural products. The long hunters wore buckskin and dressed much like the Indians because their cotton/wool/linsey whatever clothing would rot off them in the wilderness.
The ‘native Americans’ had hard lives.
If we let things devolve to that point we deserve it.
I’ve had a strange idea for some time now: Why don’t we get off our asses and do what will be required to take our country back before we end up eating each other? We outnumber our enemies, or at least their leadership. Why hasn’t Trump brought the troops home and had them hunt our real enemies, who’ve always been here?
We need to be prepping for what will be required.
This is all distraction. We should be hanging our corporate commie globalists not waiting for the world to end.
As our ancestors conquered we must be ready to defend or we will be conquered. Or maybe we already have been.
Why are we pushing democracy when we’ve lost our Liberty?
“Democracy is the road to socialism.” – Karl Marx
So when will the republicrats repeal the 16th amendment and the evil gun laws and pass a constitutional amendment to ban socialism?
Why are we REFORMING COMMUNISM? WHY is NO ONE asking WHY we HAVE an income tax?
Democracy is evil, another form of manipulation, two wolves and a sheep voting on lunch. Liberty is a well-armed sheep contesting the vote and killing the wolves. We MUST DEMAND LIBERTY!
