Default Fire Can Be Made Numerous Ways...

In bushcraft, matches and lighters are luxury, but not unheard of entirely. Other methods should always be in your arsenal of knowledge. Bushcrafters learn how to make fire from a fire drill, striking rocks to form a spark, and the use of a mirror to reflect sunlight on tinder until it smolders...

Who knew there were so many ways to play with fire.....

tips for locating a good campsite-
near portable water
higher ground
(look for)a natural windbreak
(a)level clearing, surrounded by trees on all four sides-for privacy & weather
look up-do not camp under Widow makers-dead tree limbs & dead standing trees
clear site of any sharp rocks or debris that could damage tent
also-don't set up campsite on a game trail for obvious reasons!

Default Protect Your Food in a Tree Bundle....

......

Critters and wood animals love your food, so rig a system to put all of your perishables into a pack or bundle that you can hang from a high branch on a tree. Itís important to get the food off the ground and away from your tent, as animals are likely to approach you because of your proximity to a food supply.

Default ACR Personal Locator Beacon.......




PLBs send a signal directly to authorities. This is unlike the consumer “SPOT” product. The beacon transmits a 406 MHz signal to satellites overhead. The beacon includes your location in the transmission from its onboard GPS receiver. It also has a bright strobe light that operates when the beacon is active.

There is no subscription fee for a PLB, but you must register it with NOAA after you purchase it. Note that it is a violation of federal law to misuse a PLB. They are only for emergencies where a life, a limb, or eyesight is in jeopardy.

if you get your axe stuck in, rather than struggle to get it out, lift the log up, still on the axe, to full height, flip it round and bring the axe back to your chopping block, axe back (rear) down. This forces the stuck log down onto the axe and usually splits it first time.

Who doesn't appreciate a good "wood chopping" tip or two!

Let's be honest, IF I'm without food and you've got some, the chances of my proximity to you are going to be very good.......

Default Advantages of a headlamp over flashlights, or lanterns...

Hands-free ó the ability to use both hands is a major advantage over a flashlight, and for certain activities like climbing, hands-free is imperative. Even around the campsite where a lantern can provide general hands-free lighting, the ability to easily direct extra light wherever you'd like, with just a nod of your head, is an advantage.
Beam Distance ó This can be a big asset for finding things in the dark, such as the poorly marked trail back to your car or campsite and helps avoid falling over any dead bodies or running into serial killers
Compact and Lightweight ó they are easy to fit in your pack, and the lightest weigh less than an ounce.
Durable ó many of the higher quality lights are built tough, offering water resistance sufficient to operate in sustained rain storms.

Default Bandanna (who'd a thunk it?!!)



Handkerchief (if you get stuck out in cold weather your nose will run like a faucet!) general purpose rag, hand towel, emergency toilet paper,neck or face scarf, tourniquet,Bandage/Ace Bandage,patching material for torn clothing or backpacks, strainer for salty water,protection while grabbing hot pot handles, and a dish rag


A typical cotton bandanna only weighs an ounce, so for a small amount of weight, you get a lot of function. If you need to clean and re-use it, just rinse it in a stream, lake or river. To sterilize it or to remove grease, boil it in water for a couple of minutes and you're ready to go.Also, carry your bandanna in a zip lock bag or other waterproof container to keep it dry until needed.

Default Swiss Army Knife............

Use the corkscrew on your Swiss Army Knife to undo stubborn knots....



Of course then, at the end of the day, use it for its intended purpose of opening a nice bottle of wine.

By all means if you've survived the hike to finding a campsite, putting up a tent, locating a water source, etc etc by all means kick back and indulge .....

Default Petroleum Jelly...........

A cheap way to keep carbon steel knives and axes lubricated and rust-free is to use common store-bought Mineral Oil or Petroleum Jelly.


Petroleum Jelly can also be used in other ways for bushcrafting. Petroleum Jelly combined with cotton balls makes a great tinder that's easily ignited with the spark of a firesteel. And with all these sparks flying about should a romantic encounter happen, all the better....
