Survival Techniques For The After Time:
Survival techniques before and into the After Time will be a valuable resource not only for individuals but for groups as well. Basic every day techniques such as sewing, baking, making a latrine to building a shelter and distilling water will be needed. Knowing how to make a fire from animal dung to re-purposing fabrics to make them fit someone else or made use of in other ways, will be much needed skills. Zetatalk and Troubled times covers a vast area of topics on survival. There are also videos that cover a large portion of survival techniques. Researching will be a personal preference on what is needed or required for your own use and location. A quick rule of thumb is surviving 3 minutes without air, 3 hours without shelter, 3 days without water and 3 weeks without food. As always check your safe location and know your local area.

Also for the absorbent layer, sphagnum moss is an alternative when other materials might not be available. This technique can also be used for baby diapers.
