I'm generally someone who can get by regardless. I can fend off, grow plants, hunt, fish, skin, cook, BBQ, basic repair of almost anything small to large within reason, and have a general sense of awareness of surroundings. Bring it!

I find it telling that no one mentioned that Staying alive and taking care of their family.

It should be your #1 qualifier and the best thing you do.

I make the best apple cider in these parts. I have my own strain of yeast cultivated.

30 years systems engineer - I get stuff done.

I have a sawmill and live in timber country. I got wood.

All the important stuff falls under OPSEC.

I think I'll be a cobbler. Everyone needs shoes. Plenty of material out there to make new soles.

Mess kit and canteen cup repairman.

I have a hammer, anvil, and rivets. And I'm not afraid to use them.

Welder/fabricator. 16 years experience mixed in structural steel, pipelining, sheet metal working, a few years as a rookie machinist and a basic working knowledge of automobiles/engines. A jack of all trades(ace of none lol)when it comes to metal. Iím pretty sure people will need things built/modified/repaired.

Funny, I had this conversation while my friends and I were fishing on the Columbia River a week ago. One is a machinist/engineer, the other is a welder/tech, and I'm an accountant and tinkerer.

Most trades around will have some benefit to a post-apocalyptic world, assuming you can make it past the initial cause of it. The only few at those Starbucks or fast food chain jobs, but hopefully they have some other skill other than moving targets.
