  3. General Discussion
    As i sit here and scroll through post after post on multiple forums and site, reading a multitude of opinions from amateur and experienced survivalists alike, i find a single ideology somewhat disconcerting.

  6. DIY - Do It Yourself
    Had some tinker time on my hands and thought to make a coffee can stove. Works really well and for someone with no plans and sketches i thought it turned out real nice. With stove pipe cement to seal the gaps, it runs real good. No backdraft at all. Have to make better legs as the stove is...

With that said, my EDC fire kit consists of an Altoids tin with one wetfire cube, dryer lint, UST Sparkie, and a mini BIC lighter. I do not use black tape around the edge of the tin for...

  10. Primitive Weapons, Bows and Crossbows
    I have yet to find something of that flavor. The reason I want an ambidextrous bow is that I learned to fire a gun with both hands, so I want to learn to shoot a bow the same way. Any help would be fantastic.

    So there is this landfill west of St. Louis. There is an underground fire that is encroaching on some radioactive materials.

    Hello I tried to make a small fire with a battery (Duracel, AA, 1.5V) and kitchen-aluminium. I tried it a few (10-20) times and finally it worked out, I got a few red fire-lines on my aluminium and succeeded to make it burn using a small tinder. However I almost every time get a bit of...

    It started one night while I was snow blowing the fresh 16 inches of snow that clung tightly to the drooping branches of pines and a few maples within eyeshot. It was a typical Noreaster storm, but we already had a foot + on the ground already. I wondered what if there had been a severe...
