How to use a Compass - Compass and Map interaction Kjetil Kjernsmo's illustrated guide on Using the compass in interaction with a map This is the important lesson, and you should learn it well. It's when you use both compass and map the compass is really good, and you will be able to navigate safely and accurately in terrain you've never been before without following trails. But it'll take some training and experience, though. I am not covering map reading here, guess you would have to consult other sources for that, but the lesson will be useful if you have a sense of what a map says. First, a quick summary of what you will learn in this lesson: Align the edge of the compass with the starting and finishing point. Here is our compass again: The principles are much the same as in lesson 1 but this time, you are using the map to tell you which way is correct instead of your intuition. Take a map. You want to go from the trail-crossing at A, to the rock at B. Time to be careful again! Keep the compass steady on the map. It's time to walk off.
Katadyn Pocket Water Microfilter Review In my opinion, a water filter is one of the most important pieces of gear you can carry. Without water, your chances of surviving for any length of time are pretty minimal. Not having enough clean drinkable water prevents your body from carry out its normal functions, and can lead to death in as little as three days (possibly much sooner in harsh desert environments). Whether you’re a hiker, a prepper or just someone who enjoys wilderness activities, having a way to obtain clean drinkable water is essential to your survival. Over the years I have encountered a number of different types of water filters. Why I prefer the Katadyn Pocket Microfilter The Katadyn Pocket Microfilter is no skimpy water filter, the thing is tough and can take a beating. The manufacturer claims that it’s built for a lifetime of use, and they back up their claim with a lifetime warranty. Through countless number of excursions into the wilderness, this filter has never once failed to deliver clean drinkable water.

How to Disappear so that No One can find YOU! There are many reasons you might want to disappear, some honorable some not so honorable. Maybe you have a stalker or you would like more privacy, maybe you are avoiding domestic violence or identity theft... whatever the reason is here are a few tips that will help you do just that. The very first thing you should do if you would like to make your earthly presence a little less conspicuous is to stop getting your mail at the place you live. A post office box really wont do either because you need two forms of identification linking you to the place you live. Another alternative is to rent a mail box using an old address. If you have a friend that will let you use their mailbox and you don't get a lot of mail you could ask them and have your mail sent there. You may find that you really don't need mail at all and just cease getting mail. The second thing you need to do is to quit using your credit cards.
Stormdrane's Blog This is one of those projects that's been on the 'to do' list for a long time. Just a simple three point attachment version of suspenders, non-adjustable and made to fit me. I used shock cord for the core, Flat Gate Clips from County Comm for the attachments to clip to my pant's belt loops, and then knotting over the shock cord with paracord, tying the Solomon bar/Portuguese sinnet/cobra stitch. I started with about 10 feet of shock cord, looping the center of that length onto one flat gate clip, measuring about a foot down with both cord ends to tie a cross knot, splitting up the two cords and measuring about three feet down each, tying a scaffold knot to each of two more flat gate clips. I had about a 60 ft length of black paracord that I cut in half, then used each to tie Solomon bars around each of the two single lengths of shock cord to where they meet at the Chinese crown knot. The initial fit is good, but I'll have to see how they do over time.
