We all know what we need. Water, Food, Shelter, Warmth.
What about the things we may need to know?
What plants can be used for what purposes medicinally?
How do you make a Bow and Arrow for getting by should ammo become scarce?
There is a laundry list of things that need to be learned and taught, just in case.
 
Let's share our knowledge foor those that may not have a clue.

There is some pretty good extreme survival programmes on TV. Not sure how relevant this is in our world anymore.
Other then a plane crash or a shipwreck, we operate in fairly well populated areas. I would imagine walking in a straight line or a known direction is the imprtant issue. I hardly think a days walking in a straight line would not bring you into contact with civilisation.
However, if a person has been hurt, then just being a couple of miles from help can become a matter of survival.

One skill that I find most people lack is the ablity to read a campaign finace report.  Then you know who not to do business with...

I fear this most of all, that eventually we all are going to have  to "Lie, Cheat & Steal" to make ends meet.  I pray it doesn't come down to this.

Some of us are getting pretty close already. I heard today that over 500 employees were laid off since Christmas in my little town of 13,000. That's a pretty good chunk of the workforce.

So maybe walking a straight line will not work?
