    Good one, I had not thought of that one. I remember reading about the making of the latest "Last of the Mohicans" movie with Daniel-Day Lewis. All the Indians were real Indians, but they had to teach them how to paddle a canoe properly. Some comments from the Indian actors was that they very much enjoyed learning the old skills & connecting with their roots. We all need to be good at what we do.

    Fishing is a good one, I don't get to do much fishing these days.
    A close friend & I used to make a boat camp when on the great lakes, much the same way one makes a canoe camp.

    I raise gardens. It's more like work however. Fun only at harvest. Needed in survival.

    Sighting in rifles is embedded in my neurocircuitry. Plinking and range-blasting is oh so fun. Should riflery come to be needed for survival, not fun.

    I fix all manner of normal and rare equipment; electronics, mechanical, pneumatics, fluid xfer, robotics, ..., if it has to be assembled, if it has to be fixed, if it has to be programmed, if man-made has to match biologic, whatever ... . True at work. True at home. Fixing, building, and improvisation are needed in survival situations. However, this stuff IS work.

    Perfect world = hobby at home & same at work
    I envy folk who enjoy such. I envy folk who are not under hellish pressure to get things done by yesterday.

    Totally agree, to have payed work that you actually enjoy doing would be great. I wish I had been given more information on available occupations back when I was leaving school at age 14, but the school classed many of us as factory fodder & that was the only information we were given. These days the information is out there, in the news & on the net, but there are less jobs available & a lot more people. These days you need qualifications on paper to get any decent job, in my day all that counted was that you could do the work required.
    The way we live now means we can pretty well do whatever we want you & I, but we still have work that is constant & has to be done. But I don't think we would have it any other way;)

    I fish a lot. For me there is a special zen that I find on the water. Over the years I've gotten pretty good at it and could feed my family off fish if nothing else. I also actually do most of the other things on the list as well. At times when I was younger I was heavily into shooting, reloading and such.

    Many of my hobbies could also be said to have survival related uses as well.

    I love to sword/axe fight nothing like charging a field with 400+warriors split into 2 armys armed and hungry for victory

    First time on the field I was so overwhelmed I died in less than 20 sec don't even know who hit me
    First time I survived till the end there was less than 20 of us left such a high and buzz I was addicted
    it's bin 10 years training and fighting and still the best buzz ever plus the craic after no better piss up dan with a bunch of vikings after a big fight

    So Mr Boots, finally I know what you are! A living historian like myself:) Does your group practice any other period living skills? My interest is in the 18th century, but I would have been sorely tempted to join the local medieval group if they had not been so "up themselves" & just so unbearable to put up with. A great pitty. In my opinion members of these types of living history groups stand the best chance of survival in any survival situation.

    @Keith H.
    We used to do up to 1600
    (pre gunpower due to how difficult getting a licence is here)
    now mostly 800-1014 (main Irish viking period)
    we do a big living history village and are always pushing to improve our crafts every thing from blacksmiths to potters to candle makers its bigger than our fighter group as all warriors must learn a craft for display if they want to fight and a few in group don't want to fight but want the living history side it one of the reason I join our group as most groups do one or the other and I wanted to learn both
    I know what you mean by up themself came across a lot of clickly groups at some big open shows I think life is to short for all that shit
    We'll defiantly have a big advance and the right gear and skillsñ when the S.H.T.F
    we have build a viking longhouse big enough for all of us to sleep in with our extra gear a few years ago we use for a training base and get togethers and with our village we have all the tents and tools to live on the move
    next we want to build a long ship.....

    I like to hike up to the mountain lakes and do a bit of fishing, maybe practice a bit of survival skills.
