We do our best to be prepared. We keep tools on hand and often have multiples of each. But not matter how prepared we are, it’s still possible to end up without the tool we need.
Survival Skills: Opening a Can Without an Opener
This is why it’s important to learn to work without tools, or to make them yourself. Check out this video on how to open a can when all you have is your bare hands.
There is no denying the fact that we simply cannot survive without food. Even when most people would say that you can last three weeks without it. It may be true if you do not go out there to build shelter or go on your way to your bug out location. In any survival situation, you need to move about to make it out alive.
Survival skills would play a vital role in helping you get through the hard time. If you have some food in your bug out bag, you may have sustenance for around three days. And then you find out that there is no can opener in your BOB. For sure it would be frustrating, after all that preparation. It may have been misplaced or you just plain forgot, but whatever the reason there is no point in punishing yourself.
You have to be creative and improvise to be able to eat what food you have in a can. As the video shows, there is a solution for this. All you need is a rock or any hard surface that is considerably rough. Just follow the demonstration and soon you’ll have a full stomach and a body full of energy.
