  1. This is a great list. I appreciate the fact that you included storytelling as a necessary skill. The ability to tell a story will be a great way to pass along history and traditions if we were to ever lose our access to technology. A couple of additions I might make would include working with leather (ties in with tanning) and more specific information about building structures with basic tools. Thanks for the list!
