Howdy all.  I had some time to kill before class this morning, so I came up with this list.  I promissed myself that this year I would practice and own my skills.  So I figured I make a list of what all to learn because lists help me, A LOT!  I made a list for wilderness survival skills, and I have my Urban Survival, Preparedness, Tools, and Self Sufficiency Lists left to make.

 

I figured that this could be a collaborative type thing, so if anyone sees something I missed, let me know and I'll add it in!

Great list! I think I'm going to start going through and making sure I am covered on these. My wife has been wanting me to teach her some fire starting techniques and the like. So this makes a good base to start her on too!

 

Thanks for posting!

Food processing (Canning mostly) is one I'm hoping to pick up this year.

Also getting more proficient at carpentry, I love to build but I want to learn more techniques.

Always looking to increase the medical skill-sets as well.
