The 10 c’s of basic gear you should take with you into the wilderness

This is my take on Dave Canterbury’s 10 C’s of survival this should be the basic minimal kit every bushcrafter, survivalist, hiker, backpacker etc should take with them into the wilderness. Don’t take chances with your life and safety. Have fun and live comfortably out there.

My 10 c’s of basic gear

Cutting tool- Good solid knife (fixed or locking blade)

Coverage- Tarp 10×10

Combustion- Put together a kit with multiple ways of making fire

Cordage- 50-100ft 550 paracord

Container- Personal preferance but a good solid container

Candling- Good higher loomin head flashlight keeps your hands free

Course- Compass, Map and Gps never just a gps

Communication- Cell phone, Satillite communicator (inreach device, spot device)

Care- First aid kit taylered for you and not just an off the shelf kit

Confidence- In your gear and knowing how to use it.

Know more, rely on less

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.
