survival skills yardMany off-the-gridders have extensively prepared for an uncertain future. Much of the preparation concerns being as self-reliant as possible on a self-sustaining homestead. But if disaster strikes, the only option may be to abandon the homestead and flee as fast and far away as possible. If this happens, you’ll need some basic survival skills. While these skills take some practice, the good news is that you can train yourself on many of them in your own yard.

There are a lot of good reasons why you should practice these skills. First, it makes you more proficient. Second, when you’re on the run, you may be in a hurry, hungry or exhausted. You have to do what you need to do without giving it a lot of conscious thought.

1. Water from Condensation

Your survival bag should contain a water filter or some type of chemical to treat surface water or groundwater that you find.

However, the first challenge is finding water. If you can’t find surface water or can’t dig deep enough to access groundwater, making a solar still is a possibility. A solar still can generate drinking water even in dry climates.

Off The Grid News already has some great information about a more sophisticated solar still.
