The pioneers were some of the most incredible men and women of all history. You have to really understand what they faced to truly understand their struggle. Those who traveled and explored the oceans without care were like astronauts of their time. It might be apt to think of the pioneers as the same thing. Unfortunately, the skills and achievements of those brave families that made it across the US are mostly forgotten. That is a very sad thing to consider.
Thanks to preppers and survivalists alike, we are getting a peak into the very real skills of the pioneers and they are making a comeback through great books, articles and podcasts. Some things are necessary in our life and in our society. These skills are just that. Whether you realize it or not you might be holding onto some of these skills
