Utilize some free time this weekend to enhance, build up, or to learn new skills. The majority of us live in a world of convenience, where fresh water, four walls and a roof, warmth, clothing, food, and medical assistance are all readily available. Ensure your ability to maintain these life necessities by practicing - emergency and survival shelter construction, water procurement and purification, fire building in adverse conditions, and wilderness medicine. In the same way we train our bodies to meet and exceed the physical rigors and demands of daily tasks, we should arm ourselves with the preparation to provide for our basic needs.
