In February, I’m going to start a Patreon — kinda a subscription/club thingy for friends and fans where I can give away cover songs, demos, videos, skits and random fun stuff for as low as $1 or $2/month. Don’t worry, I won’t be getting all salesy on you about joining! I completely understand that not everybody can (or even wants to) participate. But I AM wondering, from those of you who may be interested, what kinds of exclusive reward type stuff would you want?

Survival gear isn’t just a necessity for adventurers in the deep wilderness. It’s an insurance policy in which every outdoor enthusiast should invest. By carrying the supplies to provide for your own needs, you’re ready in the event that you get caught in an emergency in the wild. And if that emergency never comes—you still have some cool and useful toys to enjoy. Before your next excursion, check out my favorite wilderness survival items—and consider whether they’re a good fit for your own needs.

On firemaking you covered several useful items. Here’s an idea on the magnifying glass… ever see those older model, big screen, rear projection TVs on the side of the road, at the dump, or in the “free” or “curb alert” ads? Excellent source of compact, VERY powerful magnifying glasses. There’s three in each one. Scrap the screen, find the housings in the bottom, pull them out and crack them open. The housings are tubular and designed like camera lenses with multiple plastic lenses near the ends, but in the middle there lies a high quality glass lens. Not the most durable as they scratch fairly easily, but they’ll start a fire even with pretty extensive scratches. I made some felt lined leather cases for mine, but simply kept them wrapped in a swatch of old flannel shirt and secured with a hairband until I made the cases.

I ordered the free knife knowing going in that is was just a lure to get you to buy something else. When I saw the offer for a second free knife, I knew that is was a catch. If you bother to read anything else, it tells you that you are also going to be in their club and there was a monthly fee. I clicked on no thanks and got my free knife with no problems, and it is good for what it is.

Binoculars are often overlooked as an essential piece of survival gear. The fact is, you can survive without binoculars, just like early century Native Americans who lived off the land. Key difference though is that they knew the land — there’s a good chance you’re going to end up in a place that you don’t know very well, especially in a mountain range, vast desert, or national forest.

In this guide, we’ll walk you through the must-haves in your expedition backpack, how to use everything from tech to trees to find your way, and the myriad of ways to create fire—without rubbing sticks together.

BIAS Alert! is the knife I (David) designed and have been testing / using since prototype #1 in early 2014. This is MY knife. This is the one I carry all the time – Whether on my side or in my pack. As of this writing we are JUST beginning to ship these – so they are not yet readily available. For these reasons, I have (MOSTLY) excluded the MSK-1 from this List and Video.

Rather than MRE’s, check out your local LDS/Mormon “Bishop’s Warehouse” for cans & Mylar bags of bulk and dehydrated foods. The cans are designed for 30+ year storage and the Mylar bags are perfect for hiking, camping, and survival. They are a lot cheaper than MRE’s. You can even buy some Mylar bags and make your own “meals in a bag” for even less money.

Needs jungle/woods update The game doesn’t have water procurement and stuff like that for jungles or wooded areas. I haven’t had to buy anything but there’s multiple copies of this app that say the same things this one does. I would give it 5 stars if it had an update or an addition to it.

1. The most important rule for dealing with children (and teens) when the SHTF is EXPLAIN EVERYTHING several times over. Don’t assume that the kids will know not to go outside in a natural disaster. Don’t assume that the kids … Continue reading →

The resins from pine trees are very useful if you reduce them into tiny shavings. They easily catch fire and can therefore be used as an easy to find ingredient to starting fires because the can be found practically everywhere. But what makes them special is that the smoke that’s produced from burning the shaved fat wood makes effective mosquito repellents. This is one of many perfect scenarios where carrying a survival knife makes complete sense. Here is our guide to best survival knife in the market based on various field tests and expert opinions. 

One of the keys to surviving the wilderness is to keep yourself fed. All your survival efforts will be useless if you don’t have to energy to execute your plans. Although you can hunt or fish for food, both of them require patience and a degree of skill.

I’m a believer bullion silver, in part because of its utility for barter. Secondarily, I’m a proponent of silver because it is presently undervalued versus gold. In the long term I am confident that silver will outperform gold. Its only drawback is its relatively high weight and bulk, per Dollar invested.

I am sorry to say this but your tent is worthless. A true survivalist would have a 4 season tent. One used on expeditions to alaska or antartic summer. You have to survivor a winter in Minnisota, Michigan, Maine or other very cold area. Most tents bought at stores like walmart will only last one or two years of constant use. So unless you have put out big bucks for a UV protected tent and stove heater, your dead in winter.

Real binoculars are for the wilderness. Get yourself a pair of real binoculars. Outdoor Life rated several binoculars, most coming in at over $1000, with one priced at $2700. That is steep! But Outdoor Life did give a high rating to a cheaper pair — The Alpen Apex XP 8×42 is priced at about $300 and received Outdoor Life’s Great Buy tag. If you have the money to spend, sure, go ahead and spend top dollar, buy the best of the best. You will get more bang for your buck. But you’ll get a lot of bang for your buck as well with the Alpen Apex 8×42 for a lot less.

Everyone should own a can of Devil Juice Pepper Spray that can drop an attacker from as far as 6 feet away which is important because it’s best to neutralize threats before they enter into close quarter combat.

The hazard function, conventionally denoted λ {\displaystyle \lambda } , is defined as the event rate at time t conditional on survival until time t or later (that is, T ≥ t). Suppose that an item has survived for a time t and we desire the probability that it will not survive for an additional time dt:

Another form of fire-starting because you can never have too many. If you currently have regular matches in with your survival gear, you making a mistake. If regular matches get wet, they are worthless.

You will already see a tent shape. You can reinforce this tent skeleton by propping some more sticks to support the longer stick. Now, cover the tent with branches of trees and leaves to make a comfortable shelter.

Trek to Teach is a nonprofit organization that sends fluent English speakers to teach in Nepal near the Himalayas. In addition to teaching, Trek to Teach strengthens local communities by helping schools build infrastructure, paint their classrooms, and find furniture.

At airport security: Wait times tend to double every Friday afternoon from four to eight, but if you are a frequent traveler who cannot avoid rush hour, consider investing $100 in Global Entry. This U.S. Customs and Border Protection service makes you eligible for the TSA PreCheck line and allows you to skip the customs desk during international travel. Visit cbp

Brace yourself. In a 2015 crash simulation, Boeing found that passengers who both wore their seat belts and assumed a brace position (feet flat, head cradled against their knees or the seat in front of them if possible) were likeliest to survive. Seat-belted fliers who did not brace suffered serious head injuries, and those with no seat belts or bracing died on impact.
