With that new lifestyle comes a whole new set of skills and abilities that you must take on in order to ensure the survival of you and your loved ones who live with you. There are some skills that are drastically more important than others, having ensured the survival of the species for thousands of years. Here are two of the most important skills that you can learn and why you need them.

Building a Fire

Fire is the single greatest thing discovered by humans since the dawn of our existence. Without fire it is arguable that we would have died out a very long time ago. Fire is what allowed us to cook our food, to keep warm, to have light during the night, to serve as a signal, and even to frighten away hostile animals. Today we have the wonderful advantages of numerous different forms of firestarting available to us in the modern age but it is still important to know how to properly structure firewood and how to pick the right firewood. Otherwise you will not be able to keep the fire going long enough. To learn more about firestarting visit Patriot’s closet.
