Animated Knots: Learn Popular Outdoor Knots With The Help Of The North Woods Field Guides

The Poor Man's Guide To Survival Gear Special Note: Obviously, an entire book could be written on this subject, which is a task beyond the scope of this article. The purpose of the following piece is to give those with financial difficulty a foothold on prepping without added pain. It is meant to be a starting point, not a compendium. A friend of mine took note recently that a large portion of activists involved in the Liberty Movement had hit extremely hard times, or had been struggling financially even before the general economic collapse began to take hold. He asked me my theory on why it was that so many of us are always so broke. While I consider this fact a source of solace in these extraordinarily hard times, it still does little to put food on the table, or survival gear in the bug-out-bag. The overall consensus within the prepper community is that survival planning is expensive, and yes, it certainly can be. Backpack (Bug Out Bag) Camouflage Clothing Finally, buy wool socks.

Hobo Stove | Practical Survivor Urban survival is a tricky subject to discuss. There are advantages to urban survival. Anywhere you look there are items in trash cans and dumpsters that can be used to improve a survival situation. Cardboard boxes can be used for shelter, newspapers can be used for insulation and to the practical survivor another persons trash can be a treasure. Keep an open mind during any survival situation. Whether backpacking, camping, or surviving, having a way to cook can make a huge difference. A coffee can or large vegetable/ravioli can will allow you to build a stove and cook. Items used to build this stove: * Coffee can * Can opener * Tin snips * Drill and drill bits * Metal coat hanger There are many methods that could be used to build this stove. We use a metal coat hanger to build rods which will help hold up the cooking pot. The top side of a coffee can is already opened. We then used the tin snips to cut a small door.

- StumbleUpon Wednesday, Apr 20, 2011 So you stock up on a year’s supply of medications. What then? There comes a tremendous sense of confidence when you know how to find and grow your own “medicines”. I have to begin with my very favorite herb and actually most common “weed”; though, weed is a dirty word in my vocabulary! You will find that most of the plants we consider nuisances are some of the most beneficial herbs for healing. Herbs You Can Find Growing Wild: Plantain can be found virtually anywhere in the United States and every continent except Antarctica. For identification, go here. Elderberry can be found throughout North America. Berries: Diaphoretic, immune-building, laxative, anti-rheumatic. For identification, go here. Honeysuckle If you can’t find Elderberry near you, or the birds get to the berries before you can, Honeysuckle can work quite nicely as a substitute. Mullein Is another of my favorites. How to use it: Poultice from the leaves. Preserve the leaves by allowing to dry.

Les Stroud -- Off The Grid I am here in the library and just watched as much as I had time for and skipped over some of it especially when the chopper had to fly in Les' building materials. AND never have seen anyone build in the winter, in the wilderness. From the few times I have helped build a cabin and especially when building on my mtn place I get up there when the snow is melting and then stay until the heavy snows hit in late October and many times stay until Nov. Les said he did not begin building until October! Well, I don't want to criticize his videos for they are interesting and possibly will help some who are able to do something similar. I built my remote mtn retreat with bunker and sheds for around $14,000 including the price of the land. For some who have not seen how some of us build small and "cheap" here is one which also has solar power and gravity fed water from a spring. > Just before going down to the door >

Comprehensive Survival Food List & Storage Guide Rady AnandaActivist Post Survival food storage practice doesn’t require Mormon membership, but the tradition, wrought from their first Utah winter, is worth emulating should disaster strike or technology fail, two survival books by Mat Stein.
