I’m always on a tight budget, so yes, much of my kit is recycled or repurposed. Always remember, you don’t have to go out and buy everything. Adapt, improvise, and overcome. The most beautiful trout I ever caught was caught on a fresh cut bit of bamboo about 4 feet long, dental floss, and improvised wooden fish hook with a beetle tied to it as bait. That beetle put up one hell of a fight. Dental floss is an excellent investment for bugging in or out. Besides the obvious use of dental hygeine, it’s very tough, cheap, compact and lightweight in it’s own little super convenient package, and can be used in any application where a bit of string would serve better than 550 cord/paracord. Can even be used to close wounds in a pinch, multiple strands can be braided together for applications requiring more tensile strength when 550 cord is unavailable, and can be woven into a net. I used some braided strands in Afghanistan as an improvised bootlace to serve my needs until I got back to my patrol base where my spare laces were stowed.
The power has gone out in your home, meaning the food in your fridge and freezer might be subject to spoilage. Most foods remain just fine so long as the outage does not last more than four hours and you are not constantly opening and shutting the appliance. If you are not sure what to keep and what to throw out followin… Continue Reading →
The book is divided into six separate chapters, followed by a list of fictional attacks throughout history and an appendix. The first chapter, The Undead: Myths and Realities, outlines Solanum, a fictional and incurable virus that creates a zombie, along with details on how it is spread (such as through an open wound, or contact with infected blood or saliva), and treatment of the infected (such as suicide or amputation of the injured limb, though the latter rarely works). The middle of this chapter explains the abilities and behavioral patterns of the undead, and the differences between voodoo zombies, movie zombies, and zombies created by Solanum.
I am so sorry that you were charged for a membership that you did not want. We do give our customers a trial to our membership when they order certain items from us and if the trial is not canceled after the 14 day period the membership does charge your account.

Now, there are three things needed to start a fire: fuel, oxygen and a spark. You have two of these in abundance in the wild. There is the almost unlimited amount of fuel in the form of twigs, branches, and dry leaves and there is oxygen all around. What you are missing is the spark or heat. So, let’s see what you can do to make that spark or heat happen.
On the heels of news that the United States is posturing ships in the Black Sea near Russia’s border, Vladimir Putin revealed a slew of new defense systems Thursday, including a new prototype missile that “can reach any point in the world.” He also has a supersonic weapon that cannot be tracked by anti-missile systems.

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 …
An SOS signal is the universal call for help. You can cause the signal using the light as well as sound. The message consists of three dots followed by three dashes followed by three dots. If you’re using light, an SOS signal would be three short bursts of light followed by three long bursts followed by three more short bursts. The same logic applies if you are using sound. Make sure that you practice the signal before you need to use it.
You did it! You’re going to Burning Man! As you hopefully know first-hand, participant engagement and investment in our community are crucial for our home in Black Rock City and world-wide Burning Man culture to continue to flourish.
When the sun hits the tarp, the air trapped inside the hole heats up, which in turn evaporates the moisture in the dirt. As that moisture rises, it will condense on the underside of the tarp and run down to the center—the lowest point. A cup or bowl on the floor of the hole right below this point will catch the pure, distilled water as it drips down—potentially saving your life.
– Intel – I just started using my old $80 Kindel to put my documents on (PDF) kind of a great idea – it also lightens the load. A great book to have – The BSA’s Field Manual (not the promotion stuff, the camping, first aid, survival stuff). At the end of the day, I want something a kid can understand…
The aluminium blankets or sheets added to your shelter will significantly increase your shelter’s heat retention capacity. Aluminium facing outward of the shelter can also reflect sunlight, allowing you to stay cooler under the shelter. Among the survivalist community, these are referred to as super shelters, and rightfully so.
One of the most important tip to making a shelter is making a bed. Never sleep on the bare floor of the woods. You can make a bed of dry leaves by arranging them inside your shelter. The bed will prevent the heat from your body seeping into the cold forest ground.
Tampons are very effective in dealing with deep wounds because they were designed to absorb lots of moisture. They also gradually take the shape of the wound as they swell over time. You can bring lots of them because they’re small, lightweight, can be bought almost anywhere, and are pretty inexpensive.
Bamboo Sling Bow: Here’s another survival weapon you can make out of a hollow bamboo stick or any piece of hallow wood or plastic tubing. Only that this weapon is only good for shooting arrows and sticks, no rocks. Again, all you need is two (2) 1/2 inch long screw eyelets, some thick rubberbands, a little bit of duct tape and a knife. And then take a good close look at these photos you should be able to figure out how to make it.
Water purifying tablets are a must in your survival kit. These small tablets can help you clean water in the absence of any heat of other means of purification. Although tablets may not last forever and it is not good to survive entirely on them, they can be a good emergency backup.

In early April 2009, shortly after its release, it was ranked number 6 in Amazon.com’s overall book sales rankings, but fell to number 33 a week later. By the end of the month it had fallen to number 98. The book’s initial popularity caught librarians unprepared because it was considered a niche title and had not been reviewed by the major book review publications. According to Library Journal, the topic struck a chord with a small but vociferous group of people concerned with survivalism who share a sense of societal anxiety associated with the economic recession. The journal went on to say that Patriots was reportedly originally conceived as a nonfiction guide. According to a number of Amazon.com reviewers, the novel will not win any literary prizes; its strength lies in its practical reassurances, focus on guns, and Christian ideology. Librarians then scrambled to purchase copies of the book to meet the unanticipated demand.

If you do fall, make an air pocket ASAP. Try to fall in a rigid fetal position (arms over your face and chest) to attempt to make room for your lungs to breathe. One man survived the 2003 Station nightclub fire in Rhode Island by doing this and securing a small supply of fresh air through the blaze.

The question we must ask is this – Is Trump aware that his policies are creating a perfect distraction for those same banking elites? I believe we will know for certain the answer to that before 2018 is over.
