Yes, some of the benefits here about having BOL in village where time “go very slow” is that people often use skills that are used for years, on same way.
During the last collapse people there did not had too much problems without electricity, gas and everything else, they living much simpler life and use techniques that are in some other parts of the world maybe forgotten. Like animals and primitive labor techniques.
I guess it is one benefit of living in not so developed part of the world (and country). Simply it is gonna be easier to cope with some problems of collapse there.
