Though we live in a world driven by technology, there remain a few skills every man must have.
These skills won’t win you a Nobel Peace Prize, but they are invaluable. They are the skills your father taught you, and that you will one day teach your son.
Here at CAVE, we’ve actually done full articles on some of the skills listed below (click the links to read the full pieces).

1.Change A Tire
This is one of those skills you won’t realize until it’s too late. You won’t be changing tires weekly, but at some point in your life – you’re going to get a flat. You need some idea of what you’re doing before you crush your hand, and lose all masculinity.
