A Republican member of the Virginia House of Delegates has offended a lot of Democrats with his powerful speech on guns that quickly went viral, raking in over 13 million Facebook views since Friday. Nick Freitas finally hit the nail on the head and told gun grabbers the truth, much to their discontent.
It is always good to keep a hand sanitizer in your survival kit, or better, in your pocket. However, make sure that a sanitizer that is alcohol-free or the one that is foam based won’t work for this purpose.
John’s workshop answered a lot of my questions -and questions I didn’t know I had, about the business side of commercial photography. He runs you through a job from start to finish. He starts with how to market yourself to the work you want, bidding for the job, running all the way to how to thank your client at the end of a great shoot. He shows you how to be the best photographer and business manager you can be. This isn’t to mention all of the real world insights he slips in. The information is worth it all by itself, but the relationships you’ll build and the fun you have will simply put the whole experience over the top!
Brave an animal ambush: We’ve all read about bear and shark attacks. But what about an aggressive wolf or deer? Regardless of species, stand your ground. Running will trigger the animal’s chase mentality, and unless you’re trying to avoid a snake, you won’t be able to run fast enough.
Option two: Replace it. Play a different song all the way through, at full volume, in an attempt to chase away your earworm with something more forgettable. In one U.K. study, the most popular “cure” song was the national anthem, “God Save the Queen.” On this side of the pond, try humming “The Star-Spangled Banner” to clear your head before twilight’s last gleaming.

Duct tape is one of the simplest pieces of the tool in my survival kit. It may seem a simple thing, but it has helped me in many tricky situations. I never leave for a hike or a camp without it in my backpack.
When Elise and I started MTJS, I began by reviewing my extensive Spyderco collection. Over the years, due to constant bugging by you lot, I started reviewing knives from brands I never really had much interest in. A good example would be Cold Steel. After much reticence …
The first thing that you should look for is a constellation called The Big Dipper. It contains seven stars that form a somewhat ‘bowl with a handle’ shape. Once you spot the big dipper, find the two stars that make up the edge of the bowl away from the handle. These are called the pointer stars. Now draw an imaginary line joining these two and extend it to find a bright star. This is the north star.
Flee your feed: The Google Chrome Web browser offers free extensions that will remove all mentions of the election from your social media feed (others replace candidates’ names with the poop emoji). And remember: There’s no shame in hiding a friend’s or a family member’s annoying Facebook posts; neither will ever find out about it, and it’s easier than starting a digital shouting match.
NOTE — A micro torch relies on fuel; when your fuel runs out, you have no more flame. You need back-up fuel (butane in this case) if you want several month’s use in an extended survival situation. One thing to note: A canister of butane is cheap and just one can go a long ways and is also easy to use). Consider both back-up butane and even a back up torch in case of rare equipment failure (or to even use as a bartering item; there’s a good chance someone else is going to want one after they see how easy it is to start a fire).

Forti’s kit of choice is a bit larger and bulkier, but not overbearingly so. It can be worn on a belt in a pouch and includes enough gear to make a longer “unplanned wilderness excursion” survivable with some modicum of basic comfort.
A Great Man (one of my personal hero’s) has passed from this life to the other side. This world is a better place because of him and his legacy. May all people aspire to live such a life. https://memorial.billygraham.org/…
That is a big statement. That is also what I see so many people searching for, especially in contrast with the superficial values of our degenerative, consumeristic, capitalistic, western society. Perhaps more than anything else, wilderness survival served as the doorway to a deep and profound experience of connection, belonging, and meaning to my life. I’ve discovered along the way that my passion and purpose is to mentor others into that same profound sense of connection, belonging, and meaning that comes through wilderness survival and deep nature connection, ultimately guiding them to their deepest calling.
Crab apples, for instance, have healing properties in their raw form. They possess astringents that can be rubbed across cuts and lacerations, causing the wounds to tighten and heal faster. Pine resin, on the other hand, are great antiseptics. They can be used topically on wounds or gargled to clean the mouth. They’re usually found in solidified form within the tree, but you have to melt them first before using. If found fresh and still gooey, you can apply the substance immediately.

How many of you have a flashlight on your keychain? I can’t tell you exactly how many times that I’ve used my own keychain flashlight (lots!). Having a flashlight at home is one thing, however most don’t have one on their person when they’re away from home. Sure, some of …

Here is SurvivalBlog’s News From The American Redoubt. This weekly column features news stories and event announcements from around the American Redoubt region. We also mention companies of interest to preppers that are located in the region. The emphasis this week is on the patterns of migration into the American Redoubt, based on IRS statistics. It is interesting to see where the newcomers are originating. I’ll provide some details on the three core Redoubt States. (But I’ll skip Oregon and Washington, because their statistics are skewed by inflows to their populous western halves.)

I am compiling this wilderness survival guide from my direct experiences in nature, as well as my 15 years as a wilderness survival guide. This page is both a general overview of survival in the wilderness, as well as a gateway to a wide variety of wilderness survival skills. So be sure to check the links throughout this page for more information.
To trim a survival kit down to its top 10 essentials is to reveal the utmost necessary items for ad hoc shelter, warmth, communication, navigation, and sustenance in the deep backwoods. Here, then, are three survivalists’ lean lists of gear you should not be without in any wilderness situation.
In both, Brave New World and 1984, common themes are addressed including government, orthodoxy, social hierarchy, economics, love, sex, and power. Both books portray propaganda as a necessary tool of government to shape the collective minds of the citizenry within each respective society and towards the specific goals of the state; to wit, stability and continuity.
Survival Life was bought by ryan and then he pumped the dough into it to make it go.. it sells a lot of goods because they have large email list. Its a good group and Ryan has/had a program to teach students how to launch a similar concept. being at the right time and right place sure helps wonders.
