Letter Re: Lists of Practical Skills

I cannot thank you enough for all you do. Thanks to your “List of Lists” and articles I am well on my way…. above the 80% so to speak. 

As everyone is, I am limited by finances. So while I pursue the items I need I also wanted to pursue skills. That is the most important anyway. So I was searching the site for a list of practical skills. Skills many times can be practiced without money or with existing gear. 

Is there a list of skills on the site? And if not, then what articles would you say to start with? 

Thanks again for everything. – Ben J.

JWR Replies: In general, I recommend that you take a look at the SurvivalBlog articles and letters that I’ve indexed in the “Traditional Skills” category.
