Does age really make a difference?

  1. 1. You're only as old as you feel?????

    • No age doesn't make a difference in your ability to survive in a difficult or serious situation.
    • Yes, if you are older, you need to rely on someone younger to survive a difficult or serious situation.
  2. 2. Does gender make a difference in you ability to survive a difficult or serious situation? WHY?

    • Yes it does make a difference. WHY? because the female gender is weaker than their male counter parts.
    • No it doesn't make a difference. WHY? because anyone can survive if they are determined and have the training.

I would like to know what everyone thinks of age and gender as a survival handicap or benefit. 71- year young female, lives alone in a rural area.  Self-supporting and self-reliant. survival enthusiast. Navy veteran, a retired nurse.  Mentally sharp, quick-witted. Stockpiled food, batteries Etc. Has lived off the grid for 7 months years ago. ( in a small camper, in the woods, alone) Is always on guard and open to my surrounding. Never panic, always calm in emergency situations. Enjoy being alone, not much of a people person. Natural leader. Realizes the more a person knows the more that person still needs to know. Now, do you think I could survive? Please tell me why you feel the way you do.

well age can matter in that a young person might not have enough life experience to make the right life or death decsions....

dick prenokke of alaska stayed in the wilderness until he was like 89+ years old alone he started out when he was 55...so older folks do need to take care for what they are doing but it can be done. he quit only because of the winters....

gender is a bit more tricky its true that women are weaker physically than men but there are exceptions to the rule and some women can do the work of a man...training/skills are key here for gender....

i'm 54, would i want to be alone in the wilderness when i am over 70? probably not...

why? i was rasied with traditional values and stick with them good or bad....

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
