Many survival skills of the past have been lost in our digital age. Basic skills of living off the land that your grandparents used every day are not ones we possess. Skills like building a fire without matches, constructing a shelter to keep you save in the middle of nowhere, finding your way around without your GPS and even how to get food off the land are all things that you would need to know if stuck somewhere without technology or modern conveniences.
- As we get consumed by the digital era we live in, I think it would be better to look back at how people lived 50 years ago.
- People forget about the old ways of living and we are arrogant enough to think we can do anything we put our mind to, when in fact we don’t have any practical skills at all.
- The survival skills of your grandparents provided them with food, warmth, comfort and the knowledge to use resources from an environment that didn’t allow room for mistakes.
“Today’s generation relies too much on modern technology and they wouldn’t be able to survive in an environment deprived of such technology.”
