Survival is a team sport

Was reading this article and this quote rang true. It;s the lead paragraph under Working Together.

Sounds like TGN to me.

    Perhaps we need to share our strengths and weaknesses by providing free classes, or (classes for food) to engage others. Not online classes, but outdoor classes.

    Yes! Our survival in a disaster plan includes us having the supplies to help the people around us. Community really is the best way to go.

    Community is probably the only way to survive a true, world-shattering event. Anyone alone who has prepared would be the target of the mobs.

    All great ideas and I agree we need to rebuild out communities. If you don;t have our neighbors to turn to or help we will suffer.

    Maybe a monthly survival day or weekend with techniques taught that will help everyone out?

    Fortunately there are many here in Alaska who have survival skills just by virtue of our current lifestyle. Not all skills but many. And unfortunately there are as many who have no clue and don't really want to. Some folks idea of roughing it is not having a blow dryer for the weekend or heaven forbid the battery goues dead on their cell phone or ipad. If you can find folks interested in learning it will help everyone to share with them what you can. More people prepared or with skills mean fewer desperate people to try taking what others have.

    There's a large gathering near here during the summer that teaches these skills and I'm so looking forward to meeting people who attend that might be my neighbors.
