I’ve always had an interest in survival and prepping. Of course most people see preppers as crazed, gun wielding dangerous lunatics. But the people who think such things are highly misinformed about what it means to prepare. We saw with Hurricane Sandy how thousands of people were totally unprepared for emergencies and had to lean on the government for help.
In the meantime the preppers of the area were sitting with their families eating canned foods, maybe powering their homes with personal generators and playing card games… simply waiting things out. Now this is only a very small and unrepresentative.

However, if faced with this situation it is handy to know some basic skills so that you can survive long enough to be rescued. There are 5 basic survival skills that everyone should know. They are: your attitude, how to find water, building shelter, building a fire, and making sure you have a food source.
If you are caught in a situation where you need survival skills the most important of all will be your attitude. By attitude I mean you have to feel like you will survive. It serves no purpose if you lose hope. Survival situations will call on your primal instincts, those instincts and a few learned skills will see you through most any tough spot.
It is important to remember that you can survive with no food for 3 weeks, but only 3 days without water. That is why this skill is the most important after taking inventory of your attitude. The first thing to know is that water naturally will run downhill, so that is where you will find it.
