What would you do if all modern technology failed tomorrow?

If all technology failed tomorrow would you know where to start? Could you be self sufficient and live off the land or would you just completely panic?

  • Id be just FINE. Might have internet withdrawals for a few days but I wouldn't starve. We are regular hunters and Im an avid gardener and was a top girl scout. I'm pretty sure I know what to eat and not to eat plant wise.

  • I could definitely live off the land no problems there. I lived in the wilderness for 2 months with no electricity in Central America. I think I'd be fine in Atlanta....with my house & all. I'm a big out door person, in fact...i obsess about it...

    But, i would REALLY miss a lot of things....

  • One of the many reasons I am starting a garden. I want to be more self sufficient.

  • Those who say they would be self sufficient...would you be able to have running water? Would you be able to heat your home?

  • You can dig deep holes in the earth to keep your food cooler. Yes, it won't be "cold" but it certainly helps...
