Readers: Survival Skills Their Grandparents Knew

To read the story referenced,10 Survival Skills Your Great-Grandparents Knew (That Most Of Us Have Forgotten),” click here.

Great article! A few small additions to the list: fishing (same as hunting with exceptions of technique and processing the meat); bartering/negotiating (my grandfather was a farmer in upstate NY from the 30s to the 80s and trading goods & services was a necessity); and self-defense/fighting (being able to physically protect yourself and your family gives you the confidence to stand your ground without resorting to violence).



How about sewing, shoemaking, other leather crafts and, eventually, working fiber from fleece or plant fiber to finished cloth? My grandfather wove rag rugs and grandma made all the clothes for her 12 children, pieced quilts and crocheted. Mom made many of our clothes. Although I learned to sew, I would have to refresh my skills considerably to make a dress today.

  1. My husband and i were now ecstatic that Ervin could conclude his survey through the precious recommendations he got when using the web page. It’s not at all simplistic to simply be giving away guides which often some others might have been trying to sell. So we realize we need the blog owner to be grateful to because of that. The entire explanations you’ve made, the straightforward website menu, the friendships you can give support to create – it’s got many great, and it is helping our son and the family consider that the article is cool, and that is very fundamental. Thanks for the whole lot!
