[quote:Anonymous Coward 4393568:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzI4NzI5MTY3XzQ1MTg0Q0Q3] Survival Fish Trapping Now while there are definitely few plants to collect in Winter, some animal and fish may be taken, but ordinarily hunting them will use up too many precious calories, or pose an issue with being gone from your camp or homestead site. One method and creature which might be in abundance, but something shrugged off by many, is eating carp. It's not a great tasting fish, but some people in Europe and Asia do eat them, and they actually were introduced to the US, and are a terribly invasive species. Removing them from the ecosystem is beneficial to the game fish that are more desireable, so in a SHTF scenario, it might be something that you could do, and feel good about eating. They're plentiful, especially at certain times of the year, but bottom feeders like catfish. Similarly, they can grow to an enormous size, which makes fishing them a challenge. One method that might be used to catch some carp, would be a carp trap. It can catch other fish too, and you should throw back other fish that might grow larger, but you can probably catch carp this way with moderate success. http://www.livestrong.com/article/206082-how-to-build-a-trap-for-carp/ As you'll see, the equipment requirements are minimal, and if you spend a tiny fraction of money, or knew a tiny bit of bushcraft, and were still not too weak from malnourishment, you could fashion these from bought materials or gathered ones. Here's another link with tips: http://www.carp-usa.info/ But...yuck how to eat them. Well, while most people simply won't bother, here's a video from someone I respect who likes to eat them by smoking it. All of his videos are great by the way. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/user/houndsman03#p/u/0/MJYCS6PjSJI [/youtube] In a SHTF scenario, whether that's massive unemployment and trying to live in the wild when homeless, or global economic meltdown, this could be an important means of getting valuable protein that isn't hard to prepare, and provides a lot of calories, and apparently a recipe that some adults and children will eat.

There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
