Winter weather is challenging enough without taking vehicles into consideration. Snow fall or an ice storm can make it difficult to even get on the road, let alone drive on them.
One Crazy House has a list of tips for winterizing a vehicle and what to do in the event that a storm does hit your area. While there isn’t much that can we do about snowed or iced-over roads, there are a few things we can do to make it easier to access our vehicles.
From de-icing in a pinch to getting traction on slippery roads, this is a great list of tips to learn for when the time comes. It sure is frustrating when you can’t even get to your ice scraper because your locks are frozen. Speaking of frozen locks, my favorite tip is to use hand sanitizer in them! This list is full of handy tips like this one.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It’s made of lean, dried meat that’s crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call “survival skills” now.
