ENHANCED SAFETY – Along with an improved comfort grip, our folding knife has a locking design to prevent blade accidents when not in use, as well as a childproof mechanism to keep children from unlocking it and getting hurt.
This thing is insane. Came to me sharp enough to hack through small trees in one stroke.It’s a perfect weight, cleaves clean and is nice and thick. Easily the best machete I’ve ever had. The survival tips that come with it are worth knowing too. I’ve seen the few reviews that have a problem with the sheath, but I find it of good quality, it’s tough, and holds the parang well. HIGHLY recommend.
If you have alcohol handy, pour some alcohol on the wound. It will further decrease the number of pathogens. Although to be effective, you must use hard drinks such as whiskey or rum. Drinks like beer have too less alcohol to be of any help in this situation.
Not sure if I got this link from your site a while back or not. But, if not, this is a very useful disk. 12 bucks. The whole library of manuals published by the military. http://www.muddywaterpress.com/cd.html
Campers often think that you have to bundle up all the time to protect yourself from the cold. But if you cover up too much even when you don’t need to, you’re likely to sweat inside, which minimizes insulation. As long as you’ve got your extremities (i.e. hands, feet, and head) covered, you can go about in cold environments as long as you’re moving. Reserve those extra layers for when you’re sleeping, because you’re not moving around at all.

One of the easiest plants you can eat are dandelions: You can eat the flower part (it’s yellow). Just pick it off the stem with your fingers. Don’t eat the sap, it’s a white liquid (it’s very bitter). To find more edible plants, check out: https://www.wikihow.com/Find-Wild-Edible-Plants.

The Zombie Survival Guide, written by American author Max Brooks and published in 2003, is a survival manual dealing with the fictional potentiality of a zombie attack. It contains detailed plans for the average citizen to survive zombie uprisings of varying intensity and reach, and describes cases of zombie outbreaks in history, including an interpretation of Roanoke Colony. The Zombie Survival Guide was also featured on The New York Times Best Seller’s list. Brooks’ inspiration for The Zombie Survival Guide was his childhood interest in zombies, sparked by the first zombie movie he ever saw, circa age 10: Revenge of the Zombies (1943).

Having explained why central banks are so nervous about cryptocurrencies, it seems the rest of the banking sector is finally admitting the real driver behind their disdain for digital currencies – they are competition and an existential threat.
Collect the fresh pine and spruce leaves and compile them into a bow. When the fire is up and smoking, put the leaves over the fire, making sure to cover it completely. This will cause the branches to burn intensely, producing even more smoke.
It doesn’t even have to be extreme cold, but if you carry them on your body or put them next to your body for a short period of time they will warm enough to be quite usable. Walmart carries a brand than I can’t think of the name of at the moment, looks almost identical to a bic, is every bit as reliable as one but cost half the price of less. Stay away from scripto and those like it.
This knife is by far one of the best products on this site! It is unbelievably sturdy, and holds an edge once you put it on. The blade is wicked, and the saw blade does its job. ( I built a shelter in 15 minutes with all the saplings I sawed with it). The sheath is heavy duty plastic, and will surpass your expectations. There is not a time when I do not have this thing on me when I’m outdoors. A trusty companion, at truly a remarkable price. If you are reading this review, I urge you to take out your credit card, and add this fine piece of steel to your bugout bag, camping pack, or collection!!
With proper positioning, the water will be trapped in a way that you can simple poke a hole through the bag so that the water flows through. You can then keep the water in a container. Note: Make sure your plastic bags are clean.
It’s a good idea to have a compass with you at all times, but if not then what? Get old school and use the stars– it’s a lot easier than you think. Also, keep note of rivers, paths or mountains- following these can lead to roads and civilization.
Tips: Bring along an extra stuff sack, like you’d carry a sleeping bag in, and use it to carry your tarp shelter when it’s time to break camp and move to a new location. Roll up your tarp and then cinch it tight with paracord or rope. Have a few stakes with you to use as ground anchors for your tent.
Bring survival gear. Basic survival tools such as a knife, a fire steel (metal match), some matches (in a waterproof canister), some cord (550 paracord is best), a whistle, a space blanket, a signaling mirror, water purifying tablets, and a compass can mean the difference between life and death. Even if you are only out on a day hike, be sure to bring the essentials.
Just wanted to pass along a really good handbook for people who basically know nothing about survival and are in the burbs or cities. (actually it’s good for everyone!) Stefan Verstappen is the author of “The Art of Urban Survival” and the book is really packed full of information. Take a look for yourself on his website or at Amazon.
Besides the wind, water is the next major vulnerability of stick matches. But neither wind nor water are a match (pun intended) for these amazing matches. I routinely display UCO Stormproof matches to my survival students, striking the large matches and then dunking the burning match in a bowl of water. To the surprise of my onlookers, the match bursts into flame again after being lifted from the water. These matches come in a bomb-proof watertight container with replacement striker strips and even a bit of cotton to keep the matches from rattling around, and to serve as emergency tinder.
Try getting Gamma lids. These make a great seal. They are not cheap….but I’ve had mine for years. Don’t stack them on top of each other without plywood or heavy cardboard between levels. Available on emergency Essentials and sometimes at your loocal Wally World.
Don’t worry. As long as you know what time it is, you can still tell where north is. Simply draw an analog representation of the time on the ground and draw the lines from there. Cellphones are particularly useful in telling the actual time regardless where you are because mobile tech nowadays uses GPS to be able to tell the time of the day regardless of location. Of course, it’s always advised that a survivalist have a watch with them at all times.
Of course, when you’re planning out what you’re going to eat after a SHTF situation takes place, you should also be planning out how to cook that food as well. No good having canned goods if you haven’t thought of a way to get those cans opened without spilling their contents.
Different people have different opinions but, mine is mirrored in the words of a renowned evolutionary biologist- Richard Dawkins, life has no higher purpose than to perpetuate the survival of DNA…life has no design, no purpose, no evil and no good, nothing but blind pitiless indifference.
I say no.Â Â The bag is sealed, and the only real reason for the bucket is to physically protect the thin bag.Â I use Home Depot orange buckets.Â I probably wouldn’t use a bucket that held some really toxic substance, but that’s it.Â Â The only difference in the food grade and non food grade NEW buckets is the mold release agent isn’t FDA approved for food.Â That’s it.Â Â Â Again, with sealed mylar, I just don’t see a problem.
I have to admit it, I LOVE wilderness survival. I first began learning wilderness survival out of a deep, primal need to feel in my bones that I could provide for my most basic human needs directly from nature. It seemed crazy to me that my life was totally dependent on a complex system of grocery stores, polluted highways, telecommunication systems, electric grids, modern structures, water treatment plants, and more. I mean, shouldn’t we all be able to be in direct relationship with our most primary needs? Perhaps idealistic, but that is what inspired me to begin my journey to become a wilderness survival guide over a decade ago.
Go ahead, pick up any survival handbook and inside you’ll find the same old boring repetitive stuff. How to make a spear from a stick, a bow & arrow from some tree saplings, and a slingshot from a Y-shape tree branch.
Each branch in the tree indicates a split on the value of a variable. For example, the root of the tree splits subjects with grade < 2.5 versus subjects with grade 2.5 or greater. The terminal nodes indicate the number of subjects in the node, the number of subjects who have events, and the relative event rate compared to the root. In the node on the far left, the values 1/33 indicate that 1 of the 33 subjects in the node had an event, and that the relative event rate is 0.122. In the node on the far right bottom, the values 11/15 indicate that 11 of 15 subjects in the node had an event, and the relative event rate is 2.7. Ditto on kenneth,s comments. Greatlist! Most of what I know so far is from fiction and pinterest and other readings. I had to decide if I really wanted to live after the Shtf. I am retired military and have diabetes and had a stroke in Nov. I have grit~completed a 26 mile marathon. But now find it hard to do anything. I am A “young” 68 y.o. according to my doc. How can I find other close.to me so we can split up the the work and get organized ? Thanks in advance I don't normally write about “bugging in” as much as “bugging out” due to the nature of where and how I live. In the mostly rural area that I call home, the low population density and ease of travel make bugging in less of a probability (ther… FM 4-25-11 First Aid – While I suggest everyone take a dedicated first-aid class under qualified instructors, this manual by the U.S. Army is a good start for anyone wanting to learn life saving first aid skills.
