Want to learn real preparedness skills now? Follow The Prepared Mind channel on YouTube

by J. D. Heyes

(NaturalNews) One of YouTube's rising stars, at least in the arena of preparedness and survival, is Chris Tanner, developer of "The Prepared Mind" channel, where he discusses a range of survival topics and reviews tons of gear -- so you don't have to.

Episodes on hunting and bushcraft, firearms and, yes, gear -- everything from knives to axes and machetes -- are discussed in detail. And discussions are always accompanied by functions checks and demonstrations.

In today's busy world, it is virtually impossible for most people to find the time to check out all of the gear that is out there for sale. The amount of time that you would spend on stuff that didn't work well for you alone is unimaginable.

With times becoming more and more tense, with impending economic and debt crises facing more and more countries, the collapse of currencies and civil societies will ensue. Take the time now, while you can, to sit with your family and learn bushcraft survival techniques from Tanner & Co. Each video is usually about 20 minutes, but the amount of information that you can pick up -- as well as the demonstrations of gear -- is well worth the time.

Click here to see an amazingly informative video about a new bushcraft knife that really impressed Tanner (who admittedly is not easily impressed). Even seasoned bushcraft and survival practitioners can learn a thing or two.
