    What Are Your Post Collapse Skills?

    June 9, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin



    The severity and extent of a societal collapse will affect the value of one’s skill set and the contribution those skills will bring to the table (so to speak).

    You might say that the more severe the collapse, the more necessary to have the practical (primitive?) skills and strengths for basic survival and self-sufficiency.

    My ex wife's dad owned like 300 acres on farmland and the only mill to process grain in at least 30 miles.I trained his sons in the responsible use of firearms and to track and patrol.they were all in the local rescue squad and ex was an ER nurse. Turned out I couldn't live with her but her dad and i stayed close till he stroked out a few years ago. He was a good guy tho and we knew my role in the family was.

    dutigaf I love to cook. Hell just put enough salt or sugar in anything your cooking and Americans love it.
    Guess I would go with medical? Worked as an EMT for years and set enough broken bones to get good at it. Plus now in retirement we have a side business here of free breast exams once a week for the hot chicks in town. Friday nights we open for business.
    One of the guys hangs here swears he graduated Harvard medical school of Gynecology and wants to set up on Saturday nights. Were not sure about him, hell I don't think he finished High School?
    We don't charge, services are free, we feel good about our business of helping.

    I have a good selection of non-powered carpentry hand tools, as well as other hand tools. My wife and I plant a large garden and we can both fruits and vegetables. I am a 29 year EMT and my wife spent several years as a CNA and was first responder trained.

    I am no Navy Seal, or some top secret operator, but both my wife and I can shoot and are, ready to defend ourselves if need be.

    I have mechanical skills of all types. I works on cars, motorcycles, airplanes, boats, tools, guns, etc... Hell if it has a bolt, nut, screw, or wire, I'm there. LOL. My mother taught me how to redneck engineer things like nobody's business. LOL. I can cook very well. I seem to have a knack for taking what I find in the kitchen, and whipping it into a fine meal. My kids still talk about my "tuna, tomatoes, and pasta" that I made for them back around 1995. Heck it was about the only thing left in the house, and by the time I was done seasoning and preparing it, it was awesome.
