In this video you will learn how to make fire. The key to fire making is preperation. You need to find dry tinder, kindling and fuel. But you also need some kind of combustion device like a lighter, matches or a simple fire steel. All of these topics are covered in this playlist. With these tips you will be able to make a fire in any condition and in any environment where there can trees be found.
In this video you will learn how to make fire by friction. It does not matter if you prefer the handdrill or the bowdrill, or slight variations from it. Friction fire is one of the most challenging ways to make fire because there are so many odds against you and a lot of mistakes can be made when for example bow drilling. However, if you accomplish to make fire this way it is one of the most rewarding survival skills that you can attain in the wilderness.
Being able to make fire with rubbing two sticks together looks easy and the viewer might think that he does not need to practice because he is so sure that he "knows" how it works. If you watch a lot of bow drill videos on youtube, it is true that you probably know how to do it, but that is far away from "being able" to do it, because fire making techniques like this need practice. It is like shooting with a bow and arrow. You need practice. And strength. And stamina.
A lot of people take their bow drill sets or hand drill kits home with them, to dry them out and practice. That is a good thing to do for beginners. But later when you have learned to make a bow drill ember, it is important that you try to make bow drill sets from wood you have freshly collected in the woods. There is a huge difference, and the choice of wood gets even more narrow.
I prefer following woods for the bow drill: Basswood (Tilia), Willow (Salix), Poplar (Populus), Alder (Alnus), Yucca flowering stem (Yucca). These woods will always work when you find them dry and dead standing.
In this playlist you will find a wide range of survival knots and cordage skills that will make a lot of survival and camping situations easier for you. It does not matter if it comes to abseiling or setting up a simple tarp for a camp. Only a small amount of knots have multiple uses and are easy to make but also easy to undo. That is what qualifies a good knot.
In this playlist you will find videos about frying mushcrooms to cooking wild spinach or making a stew from a duck that you just hunted. Having breakfast in the wilderness, baking bread or simply make stinging nettle soup. Bon Appetit!
This is a playlist of the category "Survival Food". Here you will learn what plants and animals you can eat in the wild. I get asked by a lot of people what plants are edible and which ones are not. Basically all plants that are not poisonous are edible. However there are only a few plants which have enough nutritional value to pay off being eaten and/or processed. One general rule of survival foods is, that they have to give you more energy than you spend on collecting and processing them.
