Everyone in the survivalist community seems to accept the maxim that "knowledge and skills beats lots of stuff every time." But what knowledge and skills do you and your family or group need? Here is my list of possible survival and self-reliance skills to learn, in no particular order. However, the last one listed is the most important, in my opinion):
  • Situational Awareness & OODA Loop (link to my article)
  • Operational Security (link to my article)
  • Shooting & Self-Defense
  • Home Security - more than just guns (recommended book
