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....
you can use bee's wax or candle wax . good thoughts homoe

Default Hunting bushcraft style..............

Throwing sticks or rocks is pretty much the simplest weapon you can get.



Throwing a heavy stick or rock with a good aim can be effective for killing small animals like rabbits but definitely not to be used against larger animals that will simply be angered by your actions.

there is hunter-gatherer weaponry which uses a set of throwing sticks..if caught in the wild i would want to have fish hooks..live near a river and have a garden...i lived in a teepee on some pasture land in hawaii for a year or so ..no river but i had a faucet..a small garden and very little else.

I am so glad you enjoyed your year!

For me however just the thought of living WITHOUT modern convinces like HOT water, electricity, indoor plumbing, etc etc makes me shudder....


I can't even imagine not having a range/microwave nor a well stocked refrigerator to grab from!

Default Bushcraft laundry ideas 1




If you're car camping, take along a 5 gal plastic pail and a new toilet plunger and wallah you have a wash machine. Remember to always use biodegradable soap.

Default Bushcraft laundry ideas 2

An ice chest works well for a laundry tub, and it has a lid! You can pick it up and use a bit of elbow grease to shake the suds/soap around.


I would think one of those Styrofoam ones, which would cost only a couple of bucks, would work just as well as the insulated thermos type coolers.
