Good point. Also, a lot of antibiotics for animals/fish can be used . My Southern belle worked in the veterinary industry and the drug reps told her it’s the same damn product that they make for human consumption, in the same facility just under a different name. much cheaper and no prescription needed. But, very important, Make sure you read up & know what you are doing/ taking & the type of infection you are intending to treat!

Physical items are important but so are skills!
Can you brain tan a hide?
Hard salt meat to preserve it?
Pressure/water bath can?
Reload ammo?
Know how to garden(it is NOT just sticking a seed in the ground!)?
Grind flour/bake bread in a wood fired oven?
Have electrical skills that could get a local grid running at least lighting and maybe a fridge per house?

I could go on and on…

and a skill that produces a trade item would be VERY useful. Like brewing beer!

Indeed, skills/knowhow are the most important to possess. Without the skills and knowledge, all the physical items are worthless

Most people lived simple lives with simple solutions to problems or issues that arose in there lives

I like the fact that they lived such simple and uncomplicated lives
My great grandfather used to give me knowledge like this when I was younger and I never appreciated it till I was older
Simple things like using dried goat scat for a fire starter
It works amazing actually
Like having a fixed blade knife in you everyday
He would scoff at all the folders we carry now adays
