More survival tips

Gary Fong just posted about how to dig a home so we have a place to live during the recession and so it is important to have shelter and I also wanted to talk about what some things to be careful of in terms of food.

1. Be sure to start by capturing and eating the smaller animals. They are sometimes hard to catch because they are fast so we will want to go out and buy some small animal traps NOW while there are still some left and while we still have some money to buy them with.

2. Catch enough food to eat and then a little extra to use to hunt bigger animals. It is important to catch bigger animals partially for food but also for warmth. Getting a nice fur coat is not a luxury in the wilderness it is a necessity. Use part of the fur for your coat and part for your head b/c that's where most of your heat escapes from. Some of you have a lot of hot air in your head so be sure to keep it in there for survival.

3. Make sure to also get an *extra* fur coat for your best friend. Having your dog warm and comfortable will prove to be a great asset for you as you hunt for more food.

....more tips to come and remember you can never be too prepared.

If you're unable to trap small animals and can't find fur for your dog let alone food, you can always eat your dog. That is unless your a vegetarian of course.
