    Looking to setup a winter camp for trapping in the wilderness. This would be a 30 day venture on public lands in the northern parts of the U.S. I have all of the licenses for trapping, taking small game and fishing. I am putting together this packing list below. Some of the things I already...
  2. DIY - Do It Yourself
    In 16 years, our power system has been ultra reliable. Our Trace Inverter has never let us down. It was with a great deal of consternation that I watched our power system suddenly start kicking on and off the other night. A light and dishwasher which were on at the time cycled on and off with...

    Hello All, (Just to provide a brief background so that you all can better advise me). I am in my mid twenties and live on the east coast. I've grown up hiking and camping. My dad took my brother and I on multiple trips a year growing where he taught us survival skills and general camping...

    Advantages of A Flintlock Muzzle-loader. 1) Ammo is less expensive than a modern equivalent caliber firearm. 2) The smoothbore is very versatile, being able to digest round ball, bird shot, & buckshot, or any combination of two of these (can also use minies). 3) The fusil is lighter to carry...

    I belong to a survival group on Facebook, & it drives me nuts! I really hope this does not offend anyone here, but for the life of me I simply can not understand why people contemplating long term wilderness survival are so fixated with modern gadgets. I get the impression that their interest is...

    My PSK is the core system of the two bags that I use, my Wilderness Bag and my Go & Get Home Bag. Designed to be easily moved from bag to bag as needed, or carried on its own. If not in a pack, my PSK is designed to be a belt carry system. When I drop my pack, the PSK goes on the belt. I have a...

    One of my favorite parts of hiking is getting to enjoy nature. I like being able to see animals in their natural habitat rather than a zoo. If you have any good pics of critters you've seen while hiking on the trail post them here. Couple of Big Horn Sheep Baby Rattler

    I'm 16 years old living in California. I've been into prepping for a couple years, been around guns all my life and am pretty competent on safety and accuracy. My Dad has pretty much been my mentor through all of it, he is very well trained in survival/ tactics. What I'm wondering is what else...

    There is a thread about "creepy stories in the woods" so I thought I'd start my own, and hope it takes off like the a fore mentioned thread. When I was 12 I was in a wilderness program "SUWS" School of urban wilderness survival, it was a treatment center for troubled kids. One day I was...

    Went to the Dolly Sods wilderness last year with my cousin, and we decided to film it and add a bunch of music and stuff. We were blown away by how beautiful this area is - I kept hearing about it on forums and other places, but I was still blown away. Got to enjoy some sorrels and...

    I went to Oklahoma a few weeks ago on the little river and decided to make a short nature video on my glidecam iGlide and Gopro3. Let me know what you guys think! Be sure to watch in 720p or better!
  13. Boating and Fishing
    I am putting away my ice fishing gear and getting ready for open water fishing. There is some work involved with putting gear away and then pulling out the long pole gear. Fishing should be a big part of any preparedness plan. Let's start a thread about minimal fishing gear. What do you have...
  14. Australia and New Zealand
    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...

    As we all know, in survival situation we need to have a more open mind with the resources that are at our disposal. Items that we use in everyday life have a new purpose when they are in a survival situation. That being said, I want see how creative and open-minded you could be! How would you...

    Know one really wants to be in a survival situtation but if it ever happened, where did you think you would do best? Perhaps biomes is the wrong term but it best describes what I'm asking. Do you think you would do best in: Tropical/Beach climate Forest biome Mountain region Desert Grasslands...

    Well, tis' time for me to step out of the nest and put my gear to work. The "personal" situation that's been keeping me from heading out is working itself out and I'll have the state of mind now to be able to enjoy my time alone when I do head out. Up until now, I've been practicing my...
