As important as it is to gather disaster supplies, it’s even more important to learn survival skills. You could lose all your supplies, but barring some kind of brain injury (or years without practice), you’ll never lose your skills. However, reading about skills is not the best way to learn them. We only retain 10% of what we read, but we retain 90% of what we do.
To that end, Survivalist Prepper made a list of 15 DIY prepping ideas that will help you learn new survival skills. In this article, he talks about fire starters, solar generators, food storage shelves, and several other projects. He also includes links to resources with more information on the projects. Also be sure to check out his podcast on this topic (about halfway through the article).
