  1. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    While leaving the house this evening to make a trip to the store I spotted a rather large chicken snake laying across the road. Rather than running him over I stopped the car, got out, and tapped him on the tail to get him moving. Instead of slithering off the road he coiled up and acted like...
  2. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    Awhile back we talked about a 50 cent pocket compass I ordered off Ebay. Rather than buying the compass from an online store, just go straight to the source and cut out the middle man. Paracord zipper pulls were added to my packs, and then the compass was attached to the paracord. Is the...
  3. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    We need homes and lumber, but I wish clear cut did not deface the land so much. What would have otherwise been a nice hiking trip is partially spoiled by areas of overgrown stickers. The areas of clear cut can be rough on the dogs also. They do not like going through the stickers anymore than...
  4. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Thread is open to any topic, post what you want. In this video I talk about filtering creek water, dogs and trash. While walking down a creek that runs through the farm, I see a coke can. Upon looking at the can, it had the old style pull tab. Those kinds of cans have not been made since...
  5. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    A couple of months ago a couple of oak trees fell on the back of the property. At first I was going to do a video and article about stockpiling firewood. As the project progressed, I came to the realization that the trees were symbolic of what the world needed most – love, respect and dignity...

    Hey guys! I spent a week in the Rocky Mountains with my wife and it was AWESOME. I would have loved to see a bear (from a safe distance of course) but we came a bit too late. Still got to see tons of wildlife and awesomeness. Let me know what you guys think...

  10. Primitive Weapons, Bows and Crossbows
    You have a knife and say 100 feet of rope. Naturally you can sharpen green wood to make a spear, make a monkey fist around a rock and you have a flail that can also be thrown up around branches to help tie your packs up etc. then there's the break a rock on a rock to make a shard that's sharp...
  11. Hunting and Trapping General Discussion
    A few weeks ago a buddy of mine and I got a call saying my son-in-law and his friends needed some help getting a hog out of the woods. The dogs had chased the hogs a long ways from the boat, so far that the hunting party needed help packing the hogs. My buddy and I hook up with the hunting...
