There's something to this....but get the little hotel bar style soaps. Not liquids.

If you want to make soap...learn to use ash. It's more readily available than animal fat.

Things people bloody never pack and should? Bog roll. Toilet paper. The number of BOB's I've seen that don't have so much as a square of the stuff is...mind-numbing.

And I'm not talking out of my ass here. I've tried to bring those little soaps backpacking with me and they do the same job just don't last as long(and aren't as good with dishes). I've also had a few that smelled sweet in bear country which always makes me nervous.

I'm good at making fires and gathering firewood. I usually can find dry kindling just about anywhere (I live in the PNW, so finding dry...well...anything is kinda rare). Look under large evergreen trees, especially cedars, they shed rain really well and tend to keep the stuff at their base dry.

Alot of it is just common sense, like once you get your fire going, start moving wet wood next to the fire to dry out, build a semi-circle of rocks instead of a full circle (make it like a wall to reflect heat back at you).

Oh also;
>Gather 5X as much firewood than the initial amount you gather. It burns faster than you think, and stumbling around the woods like a dumbfuck in the middle of the night looking for wood isn't fun.

I prefer the "stages" style of building a fire, as opposed to the teepee/cabin styles they teach Boy Scouts. I'll use homemade tin-can fire starters if need be.

I'mma bit drunk now, but I'll come back and elaborate later about my methods and such if anyone wants.

Oh, also, as an add-on

>I make the firewood stacks around my camp dual function as barriers, so when stacking firewood, I block up any entrances/exits I don't plan on using with firewood. This helps prevent random animals from wandering through and fucking shit up in the night.

I did a lot of minimalist camping when I was younger, fishing for dinner, eating oats and foraged greens for breakfast. Making fires with no matches. Good times. Besides that I have basic experience with firearms. I'm a decent diplomat. I can cook. I'm pretty technically savvy. Though I have no idea how to hot wire a car, with enough time I could probably figure it out though. I know a bit of first aid but I really want to take a class so I can learn how to set a bone properly and do CPR, I've been taught how to stitch myself up and how to treat burns though. I'm of sound mental and physical health as well so I don't need medication or anything besides water, shelter, and basic nutrition if the shit goes down. Oh yeah, and I spent two years gardening.

One thing I've always wondered though, is how many people with genetic diseases like asthma and diabetes would die in a longterm Postapoc scenario. Probably a lot. I know some people that would not fare well just due to being born with a genetic deficiency if society were to somehow collapse. :(

you cant reallly hot wire new cars because theres an RF chip in the key that talks with the ignition. in the old days you just took the hot wire and touched it to the wire for the starter motor.

you also cant slim jim em as easy because they have things blocking the lock.

honestly with where i am at and assuming the weather doesnt change drastically id be pretty ok with not carrying water. with in two miles i can think of 6-8 ponds and 4 miles or so away is lake ontario, one of the largest bodies of fresh water. if i walk idk 10 miles west i come across one of he larger rivers in the US. south 10 miles is the erie canal which runs something like 200 miles east to the hudson. this isnt even including all the creeks we have criss crossing the town.

its honestly to cold up here in the winter to try and stay so id be going some where as quickly as possible. havving lakes and rivers helps.

I've gone to school to get training in survival and Search and Rescue. Not much, but I've got a FEMA ICS 100 cert (it's just basic understanding of the Incident Command system).

Been thinking about joining the military not necessarily to learn skills, but more to build up self confidence and a knee-jerk reaction to fight instead of flee, which seems like it would count alot in a survival/apocalyptic situation.

When I was a teenager, a couple friends and I made an underground water drainage system our dungeon. One of the dudes stole his dads credit card and we bought 100 dollars worth of snacks and candles to place throughout the tunnel so we wouldn't need flashlights. It was fucking awesome! this was during summer break so we would go down there everyday. It was in suburban texas and these tunnels are what those street drains that your skateboard can fall down goto. the entrance tunnel was the biggest. You could stand up in it. Then along that tunnel there were smaller round tunnels where you would have to bend over and avoid the small water stream in the middle. We would place the candles in these. then every 100 or so feet it would open up into a room that you could stand up in that had a ladder and a manhole above it. these usually went to the middle of streets. after the room it would continue to the circular tunnel to another room. eventually the tunnel started to get smaller and smaller to where we would have to crawl. we never kept going after a little bit of that because we were already some 15 minutes into the system. There were also little little tunnels that branched off a big one and led to the street drains. One time we crawled up and into a street drain, pushed off the manhole and got out just to see this asian dude cutting his bushes with a really shiny kitchen knife. like from scream.. he said something and we went back down ha ha. Throughout our growing up we would come back to the tunnels. I remember another time, we were down there doing cocaine and I guess one of the tunnels that led to the street drain echoed to the sidewalk and some lady with her kids heard us fucking around talking about doing the coke and being silly asses. She said she was going to call the police and we shout back death and rape threats. We were bad kids.
