4. How about Foraging
Besides keeping yourself occupied if you are single on Valentines day, winter foraging is a genius way to ensure you have a constant supply of nuts, berries, seeds, wild greens, mushrooms, and even insects throughout winter.
- Remember that due to increased caloric requirements, you will most likely need more food to survive during winter than you normally would.
- Also, be cautious of the shorter winter days to avoid being stranded in unfamiliar territory in the dark.
- Beware of rodents as they will more often than not attack your stock as the natural food supply dies down.
5. Buy Yourself a Gift
One advantage of being single on Valentines day is that you get to buy yourself a present that you will love and utilize in your everyday life. Make a point of finally buying that survival gear you have been holding back on.
It will double as a Valentine’s gift for yourself and invaluable addition to your survival gear pile – and honestly, gifts don’t get better than that.
6. Stockpile for Emergencies
Stockpiling for emergencies can be a handful especially when you are juggling it with other things. As a result, any extra time to work on your emergency stockpiles is highly appreciated.
Since you need to have different stockpiles for different emergencies, you can choose to work on one at a time or all of them simultaneously. Besides power outages and power grid failure, don’t forget to pack an emergency kit for your pet.
7. Go Camping
Nothing beats a peaceful stay outdoors. If you love solitude being single on Valentines day might be a great chance to spend some time outdoors away from all hassle and bustle of city life.
It is a great way to unwind and refresh even if it is just for a day.
