Many people think that “Doomsday preppers” are pretty big oddballs. They are people who are preparing for the end of the world scenarios now instead of later. Although they may be getting ready a bit early, who can really know for sure? All we can really know is that they have some pretty ingenious ideas up their sleeves. They are modern day MacGuyvers because, when the zombies attack and the dollar collapses, we all have to be like that to stay at the top of the food chain.
This is one trick you can try with a gum wrapper and a double AA battery that is a need to know survival skill.
These are neat little tricks that literally anyone can use. You don’t need to be a doomsday prepper to know how to quickly make a fire that lasts for a long time. So remember to have a fully charged battery and gum wrappers in your mini survival kit.
