    Well now I feel kinda useless

    I can ride/train my horse for transportation.
    My parents are nurses so they can take care of me
    I can grow a garden
    If I had to I could learn how to raise, kill, clean, and preserve meat.
    And I currently want to learn how to shoot both bows and arrows and guns.
    I can sew somewhat.

    I would not be a terribly useful person if the world as we know it ends.
    Now I have to go find someone to teach me all this other stuff...

    You have one asset you didn't mention. You're a healthy female of breeding age That would be VERY important for the future of humanity. The other stuff, us older ladies would teach you.

    LOL that made me both blush and laugh!! True, true. I now feel slightly less useless

    Oh! I thought of something else to add to my list. If someone messes with my horse and tries to steal him, I will open up a nice big can of whoop-butt and chuck it at them. I can defend myself pretty well I think.

    Let's see... I can ride and train horses. I also know how to shoot a rifle. Otherwise, I'm pretty much screwed. Lol

    Welp...Everyone around me would be screwed, lol.

    I know how to ride and train..and shoot a bow. I'm sure I could manage a gun if needed, but I'm a good shot with a bow.(;

    So, I'd be the madwoman charging into everyone's camps during the day to pillage, and by night I would be sneaking in to steal (I'm very quiet and can sneak well) such things that I needed.

    And THEN, I would find an attractive farm man to bring along with me, for entertainment. C:

    But yeah..I can do all the survival stuff aside from preserving a kill/catch. And ride/train. That's about all I have going for me, so I'd have to steal clothing and veggies/fruits.
    I am the baddest in my town though, so I could probably end up making a little colony and provide safety in exchange for necessities.

    I am a good shot. I don't hunt.

    I know where water is, and you have to ride or walk to get to it. I'd ride.

    I am very familiar w the desert and how to survive in it, a place most people will not run to.

    Really, the largest threats to anyone that has a modicum of survival skills, in this hypothetical dooms day scenario, is other people and fear. So, for the fear I am sunk, I can't drink or take most kinds of medication.

    And, I have some stored "supplies" on my bum...so bring it on.

    Seriously, I often would tell DD, "if this, then remember this" survival tips. I always thought she just pretended to listen and was actually internally rolling her eyes. But, after few recent events I found out she heard what I said after all! Someone actually took the time to come over and congratulated her on having the "sense" in one instance. People do "store" survival info, probably more than they know.

    I have a temper and will kill anything or anyone trying to hurt me or mine
    I can sew and knit
    I can preserve some foods
    Im a good cook

    If you want to read a good book with this scenario in it try "Dies the Fire" by S.M Stirling. Its one of my favourites

    I think the reality of such a place and how awful humans would treat each other is not a world I would want to live in until it had settled into some sort of medieval order...I would be killed by someone no doubt.

    But on the purely skills side of things,

    I can sew, cook, light fires, grow things, ride, find clay and make pots and pottery and I have the tenacity to be very hard working. I also have understanding of building homes, creating flint ad stone walls using lime mortar, and thatching.
