The reason I’ve taken quite the liking to studying the simple ways of bushcraft and become rather fond of a “horse-sensical” form of prepping is because survival is often dependent on our ability to boil things down.
Now, I will admit that there are certain systems and pieces of gear that we should certainly not omit from our survival plans. But when it comes to knowing how to get by in God’s country, I believe that it’s just better to know more. That way we’re not stuck in a tough situation carrying less than we’d originally hoped.
With that said, knowing how to construct a shelter is one of the most crucial skills that a survivalist can know. A successful bugout – one where everyone stays alive and well – might just come to require it.
