6 Simple Survival Skills You Should Learn In 2016

New Year’s Resolutions often last only a few days or weeks before they’re broken, but it doesn’t have to be that way, especially if your resolution is to learn a skill that can last a lifetime.

This week on Off The Grid Radio, we present six homesteading and survival skills you can easily learn this year – skills that even may save your life during a crisis. Expert and author Lisa Bedford, better known as the “Survival Mom,” tells us how each skill can take your “prepping” to the next level and help set you apart from other survivalists.

Bedford tells us homesteading and survival skills that can:

  • help you find edible food in case your stockpile is low.
  • allow you to communicate with friends and family members miles and miles away during a disaster.
  • extend the shelf life of your vegetables and meats for months and even years.

Bedford also shares with us an overlooked skill that few survivalists have but that nearly all survivalists need. And she tells us an easy “expert method” to cook food when the power is out.

If you’re wanting to learn a few new skills this year but aren’t sure what to try, then this week’s show is for you!

  1. I am deaf. Can you send transcripts of the podcasts or radio information? Is there a link on this page I missed? There are a lot of deaf people who love the outdoors and believe in being prepared. We are also a person who is usually the calmest during high noise and stressful times because we don’t hear all that and can think rationally. Having useful information to us is better than gold.

    Thank you,

    • Hey, Barry, I’m with you! I also prefer to read rather than be forced to watch or listen to videos. If they ever answer you, would you be so kind as to let me know? Maybe they just need someone to volunteer to transcribe the audio into text. Anyway, they bring us so much valid & helpful info free of charge, so I’m grateful to them. I’m in North-East Texas, peaceful farm & ranch land, where are you all at? Thanks, Patricia

      • Howdy Patricia. I live in the swamp of SE Texas. This is about my favorite website. I was hoping to get an answer from them but have not as of yet.

        I do know one of the best ways for deaf people to survive is have a good dog. They are a companion and an early warning system. If anyone gets to listen to the 6 skills maybe they would be kind enough to just corky dot a reply. That’s a good start.

        Thank you. Have a great day!

  2. I downloaded the file, but it was not Lisa. Instead it was about straw bale construction and juggling a day job with homesteading. 🙁

  3. I too could not find this particular broadcast. What happened to it?
