    Camping, in my opinion, is one of the best ways to practice and develop skills. However, alot of prepper and survival wannabes have done alot of damage and ended up in bad situations in the mountains where I live. So before you try what you see on TV, have proper equipment and just practice smaller skills until you are highly skilled. And don’t practice techniques that are otherwise illegal or destructive unless it is truly necessary.

    “Camping” is a temporary measure one way or the other. A nylon backpacking tent isn’t adequate permanent shelter pretty much anywhere in the country. Or N. America. If you figure on providing for yourself foodwise but don’t have the means to grow a large portion of it, plan on starving because that’s what you’re going to do. There simply aren’t enough wild resources in most parts of the country to sustain yourself now, with no competition for the resources. When the army of people that think they’re going to run to the woods and live off the fat of the land show up, well…..

    That said, camping and self reliance are great skills to have and should be persued. Learning to identify and prepare wild edible and medicinal plants could save your life. The herd of people heading for the woods will mostly be concentrating on the meat. Most of them are ignorant of what plants are edible, the qualities of useful trees, how to purify water, how to clean their clothes and themselves, life without toilet paper…..
