March Challenge #10 Skills

You may have none of the aforementioned items (money, a house, a security system, a BOB, etc) yet you can still survive a disaster if you have skills.  In fact, I've met numerous people (generally immigrants and refugees) who have had to flee their countries, their families, basically everything they had ever known, with only the clothes on their back.

You will be in a much better position to survive a disaster if you develop skills.  The wider your range of skills, the better, of course.  If you don't know where to start, consider these ideas:
