Everyone should learn how to place a few good stitches or two…or three. SHTF time will come in very handy. Not just on humans, but for livestock as well. I have taught some of the guys by having them practice using fruit roll-ups (unrolled) – best approximation of skin for fine stitches I’ve been able to figure/use- a piece of deer with the hide still on for deeper wounds.
MB – we place the walnuts in a burlap sack a it less than 3/4 full and drive the truck over it.
