Survivalist Tip: Ah – we’ve now reached the critical one week point. So that reminds me of one more critical element in your arsenal of supplies: rope. Since prehistoric times, rope has been used for hunting, pulling, fastening, attaching, carrying, lifting and climbing. Every society on Earth has developed some version of rope. In the tumultuous aftermath, you may need to evacuate your home, and rope can secure essential belongings to your vehicle or donkey. You may have to climb over a hill, a mountain, or a pile of dead bodies. And, if anyone in your clan gets out of line, you can always tie them up with some of that rope until they settle down.
