DIY Homemade Gas Mask

DIY Homemade Gas Mask

In this video, step-by-step instructions and explanations are given for how to construct a gas mask out of material and supplies that you probably already have around the house.  You will need a 2-liter plastic bottle, soda can, duct tape, cotton rounds, rubber bands, and activated charcoal (which you should have around already with your medical supplies).  The mask is not meant to protect against biological or nuclear threats, but mostly just against CS gas or pepper spray.  But it could also be used after a disaster to protect you from harmful airborne particles in damaged buildings that you might […]

The Limitations of Pepper Spray (Graphic Video)

The Limitations of Pepper Spray (Graphic Video)

Pepper spray can be an effective tool for self-defense, but it has limitations.  Not everyone is equally affected by it, your attacker could be on drugs, have a high pain tolerance, or could even have been sprayed previously and knows how to fight through its effects the way police officers do that carry it.  Either way, simply because you have correctly sprayed someone does not mean that they no longer pose a threat.  In this video we see a police officer who has twice attempted to stop a vehicle that has pulled away again, get out and spray a massive […]

Fastest Snow Cave Build (Video)

Fastest Snow Cave Build (Video)

This is the fastest I have ever seen anyone construct a snow cave.  There is some editing in the video so I’m sure it took longer than the run time of the video, but it gives you a good idea of the speed that this tool makes constructing a snow shelter possible.  I’m not getting any compensation for “endorsing” this tool, so I don’t have any problem saying that something of comparable functionality could probably be manufactured cheaper than it retails for.  But if you live in an area that receives a lot of snowfall, this is a tool to […]

Rope Throw Knot (Video)

  Most knots, for survival purposes or otherwise are about securing, but here is a knot with the unique purpose of making the rope easy to throw.  This knot is useful when you need to get your rope over a branch, as when securing your gear from bears, or even when throwing a rope to someone in a rescue situation.  It provides weight to the line that without any need to look for an object that can be tied to the line, which might fall out, or get hung up, or even cause injury if the line is being thrown […]

How to Manufacture a Bow Drill (Video)

How to Manufacture a Bow Drill (Video)

Given that these days you can get a paracord bracelet that has a fire rod incorporated into the design for less than $10, I don’t usually write much about primitive friction fire techniques.  However, knowing how to start a fire from only the material in the wilderness is a valuable knowledge and a skill that is worth developing, even with the market full of survival fire starting devices. You simply don’t know when you will need to survive, and you can’t guarantee that you will have your gear with you, or that it will last forever and work properly.  Of […]

Flint Knapping (Video)

Flint Knapping (Video)

Flint knapping is the bush craft art of making cutting tools from larger pieces of rocks like obsidian that fracture into small, sharp pieces when struck carefully on the edge.  With the importance of cutting tools like knife blades and arrowheads in wilderness survival, this is an excellent skill to practice.  Even if you have a stash of knifes and arrows, if you plan on surviving long-term, you will need to be able to manufacture your own from material available in the wilderness. Here is a video demonstrating how it’s done and what tools to use. If you enjoyed this, […]

Pemmican is a dehydrated survival superfood that is nutritionally complete and incredibly long-lasting. It is made with nothing else but lean meat, tallow, and berries.

It’s effortless to make, and you can do so using ingredients that are easy to find and equipment you already have in your kitchen. The recipe for pemmican is from the book ‘The Lost Ways’, […]
