I'm new to this forum and knew to figuring out survival skills. I live in an urban setting and lack most survival necessary skills...I was not raised anywhere near a farm, nor had Boy Scouts, dad never taught me to hunt and only fished a bit! I'm your basic urbanite who might be a wee bit step ahead of my neighbors only b/c I try to fix things myself first before calling a professional! (I do know hot to use firearms, but never been hunting). Anyone have suggestions on basic skills that I could begin acquiring? I'm particularly interested if anyone knows of a site or a book that would help me along in a "project" type mode...i.e. this weekend I'll learn canning, next weekend I'm going to learn how to build a chicken coop...etc. I'd especially love projects that I could do this my young sons...age 8 and 5...so they can get a better set of real life skills than I ever had! Thanks for any help!
