Coming soon …One man and his shovel

After being on social media now for a few months I figured It was time to show you why you should be subscribed to my channel and my blog.

No food, no shelter, no sleeping bag, no cordage, no containers, just the clothes on my back the knowledge in my head and my shovel to last 4 days in the woods alone,

Real survival I think every perspective teacher of this subject should experience.

I intend on leading by example and will never class myself as an expert because there is always something new to learn.

Natural cordage Dog bane

Come with me as is show you one of the best natural materials for making natural cordage. At the end I will do a strength test on the cordage I have just made.

Here are some pictures of some Dog bane in winter note the redish brown colour.

You can really see the redish brown colour in this picture

Note how the alot of the branches grow at 90 degrees from each other

Note the drooping leaves in the top left of the picture

The centre of the shaft is hollow apart from a little bit of a pith on the out side. This one doesn’t look it because I had put it into the snow while I was looking for more and it’s filled with ice.

Stuck in the snow and self recovery.

As you all know I was ment to go out in to the bush this weekend with the rat. Unfortunately I had to abort the mission after this happened. Lol

Things to remember

  1. Always carry food and water in your vehicle;
  2. Always carry a shovel;
  3. Always have a tow kit with tow strop, reflective gear and flash light;
  4. Have a way to re inflate tires (air in a can, compressor etc)
  5. Carry blankets, extra warm gear and water proof gear, a tarp and gloves;
  6. Keep Those old car matts in the trunk, they can come in handy. Iven winter a bag of salt or sand is also a good back up for extra grip;
  7. Keep your fuel tank topped up;
  8. First aid kit and training;
  9. Know how to signal for help if you cannot use your cell phone;
  10. Tow company coverage;
  11. Knowledge in basic self recovery weighs nothing;
  12. A way to heat and cook food and boil water;
  13. As with any trip always tell someone where you are going and the route you plan to take.

Hopefully this is helpful to you all and keeps you safe out there. Things like this can happen to anyone and everyone so Make sure you are prepared.

Thanks very much for watching and reading
