Earning your keep...after

In the prepping circles, there has been some discussion of just how people could earn a living after some event that renders out modern civilization inoperative. A lot of lists have circulated, and every one has things like blacksmithing, tinsmithing, carpentry, soap and candle making and so on--things that many would call "folk arts".

You can go to school for folk arts at the John C. Campbell Folk School. This might make a very interesting vacation this year.
