Up Skilling For Survival -Vids
As well as preparation for the obvious things, like food, medication, water and safe shelter we also need to learn to Up skill on adapting the available resources for our needs.

One of the greatest abilities humanity possesses is it's ability to adapt to survive.

A new way of thinking in the coming breakdown of societies institutions , services and reliance on instant everything, just add water existence just won't cut it.

So Up skilling is required and a willingness to share more of the things we horde.

Give and Ye shall receive thinking will assist greatly all to manage more easily within this new environment.

Exchange what you don't need or want for what you do.

Supplies from the normal sources will be scarce or take time in accessing or be completely non-existant.

Because of how the collapsing system has been structured with off shore suppliers , transport and lockdowns.

So if you've stocked up on mower blades for some reason ( this is just an example ) and your friends friend has the extra gas containers that you need and they need blades , EXHANGE.

This will help to keep society functioning and in a functioning and cooperative society, survival rates improve for all.

Please contribute your knowledge and how-to tips or videos that you have found useful survival skills or tips in.

Re: Up Skilling For Survival -Vids
I love the post…but what you describe is not a new way of thinking. It’s the way people bartered and lived for all of human history up until about the industrial revolution. It’s important to think real long and hard about what you need vs what you desire. As far as skills are concerned; learning new skills (how to start a fire, find water, build things from raw materials, fix machinery, Hotwire a car, escape from handcuffs, pick a lock, etc) is the most important prepping anyone can do. Things can be taken from you, Skills can not. If you are escaping a disaster area and someone takes all your food, water and supplies…the. The skills you have will allow you to acquire new items. Even things that are currently illegal like those I mentioned above can save your life. If you are kidnapped and handcuffed in a vehicle but you know how to escape handcuffs and Hotwire a car then you can save your own life and escape your attacker. You can even pay ex military that own companies to teach you these skills if you do desire.

Most important rule of prepping…knowledge and skills are more important than your gear.

Agreed, historically it's not new thinking, but for those brough up in a highly homogenized society, it is a new way of thinking.

Re: Up Skilling For Survival -Vids
Cool thread! I’ve been working on processing multiple locally available foods into alternative flours. As long as I have electricity, I can do larger amounts with my mill and dehydrator but can also solar dehydrate and grind by hand if necessary.

So far, I’ve perfected my taro processing. Next are green bananas, breadfruit and Job’s Tears.

 Quoting: PINKORCHID88


Hawaiian taro (kalo) corms are HUGE and take a long time to cook. Traditionally, it’s baked overnight, underground. More modern day process is to steam it over night in large barrels and wood fires. Steaming or boiling just 3 large ones at home on a stove can take several hours. I cut down this process to about 40 minutes by steaming in an Instant Pot. The corms are then cooled and peeled and ready to make poi or flour. For flour, I grate them and spread the shreds on my dehydrator trays. 2 hours at 135F and they’re good and dry. It’s then just a simple process of running it through my grain mill. I’m using a 10 quart Instant Pot and a Mock Mill 200.

Haven’t yet discovered the perfect method for poi yet (other than the traditional pounding method) Too thick for my food processor - kills the motor and though my Ninja does fairly well, there are still small chunks and it’s motor also heats up. Next experiment will be with a Champion juicer. Just need to order a part to get it up and running again.
