Scott, you would think by my popping in here from time to time I would be able to form a decent answer, but still just thinking about a SHTF situation makes me nervous. I'd probably be the first to go. So I think someone would need emotional skills. Five emotional skills: Calmness, perseverance, faith, patience, and not being afraid to die.

Hunting skills are going to be a very important skill to have mastered by the time the SHTF. This will not only aide in getting food on the table but also help with your marksmanship in case you need to defend yourself or your family.

1.Fire making under any and all conditions.
2.Shelter making under any and all conditions.
3.Food,fishing,trapping,wild edible plants.

Sweepyjean, BadVooDooDaddy,Chinasyndrome and Mr.B Thank you all for your input and you touch on a great many skills that will be needed.

One big one that I would add to the list would be some type of emergency medical training.
