Reference for soft survival skills
« on: July 23, 2009, 12:33:23 PM »

When  I usually think of survival skills, I think of things like harvesting wood, getting water and the like.

It occurred to me that soft skills are often over looked. Like bartering. Here is a pdf on the subject. It is from Oregon State University Extension services.

I hope it is of use

another thought crossed my mind, Data back ups. WIth the advancement of technology, consider putting more of your information files on to usb drives, the small ones. add these to your kit or stach, with the poptoinal data / power systmes, you could use a smallish solar charger to read the drive on you mobile and resouerce or reference the material sans a full blown computer.

Just a thought.

Good points, Grog.

Negotiation might be a good soft skill to have, listening would go hand in hand with it. Talking through a situation and resolving it without violence would be a preferable solution than someone getting hurt.

      Never hurts to have those kinds of skills and have a built up trust factor with those you deal with.

It's always good to have hard copy versions of essential prep texts, but the convenience of electronic info cannot be denied.
I use these as an EDC of my prep document collection

https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Flash-Survivor-Stealth-Drive/dp/B00YHL1RJG

I have older ones that go in my BOB and also get mailed around to people I share my prep document collection with

My next purchase will be the 500 gig version

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01F3Z66K4/ref=s9_ps_hd_bw_bDDqV_d99_g147_i2?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-3&pf_rd_r=A1KVF1PMK1MGEBJPKHZA&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=191c3a37-8720-55bc-8d1f-1a18d621f2a7&pf_rd_i=3151491

because my document collection has exceeded the older version....

I like those, but a bit pricey. Great for key info though.

I have an ammo can I keep my 7 inch tablet stuff in and there are a stack of CDs and DVDs along with some flash drives packed in there.

Technology thought, if you have a cell phone and the right apps, what about USB cables for flashdrive to phone powered by either crank light system or mini solar panel?

Granted Hurricanes are not good for solar power generation.

A cell phone and adapter would work. I have some for my Android tablet, I can even read from a CD/DVD if I have a reader. For power there are a number of USB batteries to extend the life of your cell phone or tablet, they would recharge with a crank or a solar panel. On Android I've been using FBReader, I like it enough that I actually paid for the full version. It is available for iOS, Linux, Windows and others.

An old smart phone that still worked would be fine. My old smart phone won't read SIM cards but may still read from a micro SD card and the USB port works, so maybe I'll see if it will work for this. I'd have a couple of options.
