    DIY Skills For Extended SHTF Situation?



    Do You Have The DIY Skills to continue to survive in an extended SHTF situation?

    Could you fix things as they break?

    Do you have hand tools if power becomes an issue? Do you know how to use them?

    Could you build simple structures such as a chicken coop? Compost toilet or outhouse?

    Nope. My skills and tools wouldn't help me build a permanent structure.

    While I have the knowledge and the skills, my body will not cooperate. I need to find
    someone young who is ready to admit he doesn't know everything and is will to learn
    from me.

    I have built a couple of houses and a school complete with septic and water systems. I got to do the math 4 times and usually do a mock up in cardboard when I make a stair case but I can get it done. I have generators and batteries for power tools as well as hand tools.
    Survival Actions I need to do NOW to live another 5 minutes to 3 days. Prepping What I do to insure my family makes it thru an adverse event lasting 3 days to 3 months Seeds and livestock What you need for long term subsistence.
