Skills Over Gear, or, Doing More With Less

Clothes don't make the man. All too often in the Survivalist & Prepper scene a lot of focus gets placed on gear. In fact so much so that a lot of sites devolve into simply reviewing individual pieces, which in turn is basically an overview with nothing else. And don't get me wrong, I love …
