The trouble with simple living is that, though it can be joyful, rich, and creative, it isn't simple. ~Doris Janzen Longacre

Intro ...

A few of us have been playing this survival game over at ___, a bunch of nice girls too. Anyway it's how we would cope with just what you have in your pantry at that moment, animals in your backyard and what you have in your garden growing. The point is that you can't run to the shops to buy anything cause there is non, no electricity so there is no way you can keep anything cold. It also means you don't have heating or air conditioning depending where you live. Don't forget there are lots of people that don't have much and would do anything for food. I think we're to start another round soon but you can play with a few of your blogging buddies.

I think survival would depend on your skills for hunting, fishing and being able to process what ever your can find/catch. The girls there have been canning/preserving everything even meat. I admit I have never gone down that road seriously and am willing to learn that too. (I can make yerky) Another element to your success would be how good your stockpiling is. Storage is needed for bulk purchases esp when you looking at your basic foodstuff like sugar, flour,soup mixes & legumes

What we have got out of it so far has been useful for our stockpiling, showing where what we would run out of in a few weeks. By writing daily it makes you think and soon you start living with that in mind esp when you go shopping, you just add a few extras in the trolley. Scan those junkmail adverts for sales and buy only what you need. And finding information on How too do stuff like hand craft, rug making, making cloth nappies, aprons & socks and mittens etc. Doing washing without a washing machine all skills we lost when life became easier when we got power.

It does not stop with food which is the first priority, but safety/security/health/education and craft/skills.Even discuss this with your family (just in case they think you have lost the plot) Mine think I have too but they all know if this did happen where to come.
Anyway this is my story so far.............
