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

The quality of an Estwing axe

If I find a piece of gear that is good quality and does what I want it to do I like to share it. I have had this axe going on 4 years now and its still going strong. I just saw this video featuring the good old estwing and thought that this gives great testament to the quality you get. Kudos to the slow mo guys for this video.

I can’t say much more really, it splits bullets without compromising the cutting edge in a big way.

You can find more info on the axe here
