By David Wescott Master Woodsman – A man is skillful at woodcraft just in proportion as he approaches this balance. Knowing the wilderness can be comfortable when a less experienced man would endure hardship. Conversely, if a man endures hardships where a woodsman could be comfortable, it argues not his toughness, but his ignorance or foolishness, which is exactly the case with our blatant friend of the drawing-room reputation.

Introduction: Besides the many workshops open to the public at Medicine Bow, Mark takes his lessons into your school classroom, elementary, high school and college, or to any interested group. His most popular traveling program is THE NATIVE AMERICANS , a 1 1/2 hour history and demonstration beginning with the first foot set upon North America. He follows the progress of the Indians as they migrated into the new ecosystems that would shape their cultures into the discrete tribes that finally reflected the land, plants, and animals where they settled.

He has an abundance of crafts made in the old way. The program eventually focuses on the Cherokee, the people who once walked the trails of Medicine Bow – the people who knew the Nature of this land like no people ever will again. After this class he likes to take his audience outside to see first hand the secrets of the Indians. Weekend Workshops are held at Medicine Bow all through the seasons for students of all ages.

By Nicholas Even though you can’t drink salt water, otherwise known as saline water, what you can do is turn it into fresh water, through a process called desalination. This process is being used more and more as a viable means to get freshwater for those who need it. It’s also very applicable in a survival or grid down scenario where freshwater may not be so available. Throughout most of the United States, the overwhelming majority of people are able to access more than enough freshwater. However, in some areas of the country, freshwater is in shorter supply. As a result of our freshwater supplies becoming more strained, seawater is becoming more of an important resource across the globe.

It’s ultimately more dangerous to drink high quantities of saline or salt water than it is to not drink it at all. When your body does not receive the freshwater it needs, it starts to shut down beginning with your internal organs and then your brain. RangerHandbook. Ar350 30 Survival Evasion Resistance Escape.
