I can see three other categories where this post could be placed, but I’ll place it here.
For 40 Years, This Russian Family Was Cut Off From All Human Contact, Unaware of World War II.
When any of us think of prepping or shtf or being a survivalist, I’m pretty sure none of us think of a life like this. A Russian family, escaping Soviet persecution in 1936, retreated into the Siberian wilderness and remained undiscovered for decades, having no contact with other humans in all that time, living off the land and using what they brought with them until they wore out.
Bugs Bunny: "I speak softly, but I carry a big stick."
Yosemite Sam: "Oh yeah? Well I speak LOUD! and I carry a BIGGER stick! and I use it, too!" BAM!July 22, 2014 at 5:27 pm #19633
I have seen this before. There is a documentary that I saw about this family that was posted online. I can’t seem to find it at the moment, but will keep looking. It is very interesting.

Wow that is an amazing story. It is interesting how ones upbringing can affect their acceptance of modern conveniences. I can understand the tv and stuff but tools and other things that would make survival easier that is hard to wrap your head around. I guess human nature is truly to be set in your ways.July 23, 2014 at 11:01 am #19820

A great book from the early aughts was ‘Who Moved the Cheese?’. Short book but very insightful. Yep. Most of us us do NOT do change well at all. Fear of unknowns and ingrained bias from the comfort of repetition.July 23, 2014 at 4:30 pm #19850
Like the Japanese soldiers that hid and stayed in the forest areas of the Philippines.
