    I make one of these primitive travoys when I have to haul large amounts of debris for a shelter. For a simple debris hut, just picking up a load is fine but if you are making more of a long term shelter that will require a lot more debris. The cool thing about one of these is that the two end...

    Hi All, Am not an electrician, so the wire gauges is a bit like Greek to me. :xeye: What is the best type and gauge of wire to get for snare wire? Am looking at snare wire for small game like rabbits. Thanks in advance for the help.

    The more skills you have, the less equipment you need to rely on. Most if not all of the equipment I carry is for comfort, ease of living. I could go into the bush with nothing at all, but that is hard work & there will be no comfort until I have managed to set myself up with everything I need...

    In a long term survival situation, your equipment will need to be sustainable. Sustainable means that it will not run out, or that you can replace it from nature. It means that an item won't easily break, or if it does break then you can fix it. For instance, you can't really class cigarette...

    I've been trying to find a group of like minded outdoorsmen that enjoy primitive camping/hiking to possibly schedule a meet up! I would consider myself relatively new to the lifestyle but I am eager to learn more and get more experience!:D: I'm fairly familiar with the Northern Georgia...

Anyone in the Tamworth, Uralla, Guyra, Glen Innes, Armidale NSW area that is interested, please contact me. Regards, Keith.

    I have been reading the American thread on tools for survival, & it seems to me that lots of people are being very unrealistic in their prepping. Or maybe it is just that Australia is different & therefore we think differently because our geography is different. I have been told time & time...

    Everyone who has studied the primitive survival knows that besides having a cutting tool that a throwing stick is one of the first tools you construct in a primitive survival situation. Post any ancient methods or tools that you have constructed and share any tips you have for the most basic of...

    So... I am telling on myself today. I was in the woods last Sunday working on a primitive shelter and using a new knife. I was splitting some vine to use for cordage. The vine spit much easier than I expected and like a idiot, cutting toward my hand, I sliced my thumb wide open! Well S**t. I...

    Im wondering how many have incorporated more primitive (for lack of a better term) skills into their everyday life. I know there are people that cant make it out the door without their bevy of electronics and others that have lived of the land with homemade cordage, tools and and weapons. But in...

    For 30 years, in a remarkable cabin he hand-crafted with simple hand tools, Richard Proenneke lived alone in the Alaskan Bush in Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. Retired at age 50 in 1967, the story of D!ck Proenneke :rolleyes: left the rush of city life behind and headed into the Alaska...

    Hey Guys, Hadn't seen anything about this on here so I figured I'd throw up a post to let you know. Les Stroud (Survivorman) has a new show debuting this Friday Night (August 27th) on Discovery Channel at 10PM. It is taking the place of Dual Survival, which had its season finale this past...
  17. Hunting and Trapping General Discussion
    In my reading I came across some old hunting, trapping and fishing charms used by Chippewa Indians a long time ago that I believe might be helpful to those that find themselves in a survivalist setting. This is from lore gathered first hand from native Americans by Ms. Densmorre in the 1890's...

  19. New Member Introduction
    Greetings fellow planners! New to this forum and new to blogging in general, but NOT new to thinking about survival scenarios and survival planning. I'll admit, I was influenced by "The Road Warrior" and have been secretly hoping for the end of civilization since that came out (1982?). Humor...
