    Survival Skills: How to and Why Make Bone Broth - 0

    If I could get back all the wild game skeletons that I have discarded the years, I’d do it in a heartbeat. I’d also have a very creepy freezer that would scare the kids, but that’s what you get when you venture down the path to make broth from bones.

    Take a look at the culinary traditions from distant history, and you’ll find that many of the cultures that had mastered the production of large cooking vessels were also making soup in those pots, sometimes perpetually. Since the cooking fire was both the heat source for the home and the cooking hearth, these fires ran constantly in colder weather and gave the home dweller a never-ending heat to make soup.

    Survival Skills: How To Desalinate Water in the Field - 1

    Last week, I received a call from some friends who provide survival training for a branch of the Department of Justice. They were mid-experiment, trying to desalinate water with field expedient gear. Short of building a still as featured on the show Moonshiners, they couldn’t figure out how to achieve the necessary controlled water condensation. Their results were hit and miss, as many of my experiments with this technique have been. I have built several pressure canner stills (for water, don’t get too excited!) and some tea kettle water distillers, but these large pieces gear aren’t going to fit in anybody’s backpack or survival kit.

Change up the “engine” that drives this simple machine, or place it in an unexpected location, and the Ojibwa bird snare can act like a whole new trap. Try out these two options on your next adventure. [ Read Full Post ]

    Ever wonder what it would take to start all over again? Not in a personal reinvention kind of way, but in the “start from scratch” kind of way.

    Here are 15 critical documents to securely store, should you ever have to grab them and go. [ Read Full Post ]
