Fire, Snow and cooking
Re-Blogging and Linking to two separate articles here. Rogers Blog where he explains how to setup a campfire and a new to Youtuber, a prepper and self reliant buddy of mine who has a done a series of videos to show people how to make a winter shelter and how to build a winter fire. 

This is a skill that anyone who lives in any climate where there is cold and winter should know of. This post will have some of my own info included, some re-blogged info from Roger’s blog along with a re-blogged video series from a ex Canadian Military buddy of mine who lives way out in the flatlands of Canada!

This winter campfire photo was taken in January a couple of years ago. The next photo shows the same fire pit in the summer time.

A great way to build a fire in winter if you have a camping spot for year round use or look for established camping spots along any trail or campground. Remember you do not have to always re-invent the wheel, just keep it simpler and it works.

Same firepit in summer time as the winter shot above.

A blog post by RMACTSC where he explains how to setup a campfire
…. excerpt.. 
KINDLING is the foundation of any fire. It is made of lightweight materials that are capable of burning quickly and igniting heavier materials. Kindling can be made from a mixture of twigs, tiny sticks, slivers of shaved wood, dried leaves, paper, cardboard, cotton balls, dryer lint, birch bark, dried grass, dried pine needles, etc. You’ll be using small sticks to then form a tepee and get your fire started. …. read more….

The next is a series of photos created while I was at Buroak Wilderness Adventures this summer. The owner of the camp a buddy of mine created a stunning all season fireplace/pit. Just look at all the features this cooking camp fire pit has;

  • flat rock for use as a warming centre and for putting objects on like the kettle
  • lots and I mean lots of hanging hooks all created from hardwood branches
  • excellent over the camp stand
  • excellent front and back projection areas
  • not seen in the photo is a canvas cook’s tent which is close enough to the fire to catch heat from this in the fall/winter/spring making your old bones just a bit more comfortable!

Excellent campfire setup.

This shot shows the ease at which cooking at various heights is accomplished.

Dinner is almost ready, can you not just smell the yummy goodness! Fresh field potatoes, fresh picked corn (non gmo), fresh farm raised free range chicken.

Kinda making me hungry all over again! Plus the smell of freshly brewed coffee all cooked on hard and softwoods.

Remember the old ways, remember this is how Humans have lived for thousands upon thousands of years.

This is one of the reasons your computer screen saver is of the outdoors and not your bosses cubical or office! just saying !

Hopefully these skills will be appeal to you, so get out and learn or get out and practice but above all just get out and have some fun folks!
Until next time Cheers ~wild_E

Come on out to the forums at CanAmPreppers.net where we talk about this stuff and so much more for prepping, self-reliance, homesteading and survival skills.

Christmas Presents

Well saw the title in the Canadian Preppers site, thought about it and well here is my response and thoughts;

Re: Christmas presents for the non Prepper

Postby WildernessReturn » Tue Nov 20, 2012 10:10 am

Why not make them a Mountain Man Survival kit!
make them a special EDC or small bug out pack;
** firestarters x3 or x5 different ways to start fires
compass
map
MRE’s
knife
esbit stove stand
cat can stove
Military Water Bottle with Canteen cup
Tea/Soup/coffee – decaf for kids and dogs!
SAS survival manual
etc etc.

Telescope, you both learn Night time Navigation together. Telescopes can also be used as spotting scopes with the right eye piece!
Or maybe a spotting scope to view the wildlife, together. This way you can teach them Trees, plants, animals camouflage, etc etc. Good for both Boys and Girls.
Boys Camo .22lr
Girls Pink or Purple .22lrGet them to shoot now, get them interested then when and if there is a full breakdown they can help the family and contribute by getting tree and roof chickens!
Hiking Boots
Gaters
snow shoes
skis/cross country skis, telemark skis

a Toboggan that is bigger, so it can be used by the family for fun and for winter camping trips.
Compass, as in Silva Compass that way they can use it for signalling as well and learn the Canadian Military way. I can send you Cadet training material on compass and map use to assist as well.
Then go and spend some time with them out in the bush, hiking around and sharing with them! Maybe make one for the Wife/Husband – spouse as well, family time spent being out and about, learning etc.

** water/wind proof matches
** cotton balls dry – cotton balls rolled in Petroleum Jelly
** striker/flint/magnesium
** zippo lighter in ziplock
** sting for a bow drill

My Parents Xmas Prezzies this year will be;

Emergency Vehicle supplies
– candle in pop can air heater
– TP roll in can w/ Methyl Hydrate fuel for cooking/water boiling and heating
— pre fill the container, seal tightly
supply with Duct taped fire starter/lighter and a paint can opener, small bottle with Methyl Hydrate in there.
Cost about $5 = so they do not freeze to death

Will also add in 2 emergency space blankets
flashlight
few packages of soup/tea/coffee
lemon drink, to drink cold or hot
small pot, made from a can with a wire handle & lid
granola bars, chocolate bars
emergency box cutter (US peeps) Utility knife for CDNs

I am thinking and adding in this now, I might make them a Hobbo stove as well, nest the other objects in there, to save room and increase the chances that they stay in the vehicle!

Last Xmas I blew a ton of money on them with electronics and other stuff that they did not use, or discontinued right away. So this year, they get stuff to put in their vehicle. If they break down in winter and freeze to death, I did my part!

Merry Christmas in advance!

No Army Surplus Store Improvise

Army Surplus Hardware Store Farmer Store

You don’t have or need an Army Surplus store although they help lots. Now you do have a few other stores there, like the hardware stores or farmers stores, even dollar stores there. Really those stores have just about everything you need as well. You need a BOB (Bug out Bag), Go Bag (normally in-car, because it goes with you) DODGE (get out of Dodge bag) which is a full everything bag. Now I suggest at least an alternative to the Car/Van as everything will be blocked by others. So how about bicycles with trailers, motorcycles, ATV’s, all with or without trailers. Relocate to a remote area, join the community for no single person or small group can stop the angry hordes of Zombies. Zombies = non Pepper’s or Survivalist out to steal or kill you for your food. Of course that is in the absolute worse case scenarios. 


look up;
cat can stoves
penny stoves
wood gasification stoves
hobo stoves
Fondue pot sets with the alcohol burner – very good and portable, can also be used in a regular can that is modified
use denatured alcohol – methyl hydrate – high test rubbing alcohol – 90-95% proof buy it by the gallon.
there are your stoves
Fire
matches – regular since they are cheap
matches wind proof
matches water proof
zippy style lighter (remember it evaporates so test it, then keep small bottle of fluid with it)
extra flints – cheap now, get lots
regular lighter
torch lighter
small torch
magnesium fire sticks with strikers
secondary magnesium fire sticks with strikers (yup.. double up)
one handed stickers, just saw them, cheap easy to use, wet-dry-cold
Vaseline/chap stick/
rub onto
cotton balls/dryer lint
put into zip lock bags
> make some char cloth, very easy to do, youtube how to do this
Shelter
cheap poly tarp to start
search for good quality ground sheets
get good quality tarps
get better quality canvas tarps
light portable small good quality tent
look for self contained canvas tents
> I now have 3, a. 10×8 b.10×10 c. 5×5 bell style older camper style
>why, long lasting, great quality, easy to maintain, will not die in the sun in one year, easy to insulate
>cons, little heavier, if you have a vehicle not too bad
Water
2x military water bottles with the cup and holder – a must.. with these and these along you can survive in the wilderness
water purification tabs
water purification units – portable filtration units such as;
>larger home style filtration units like the Berky or Big Berky
>youtube and instructables.com have info sessions about creating your own Berky style for cheap
>water containers, do not get the little bottles they are not eco friendly and are not safe
>>bigger 3-5gal water containers, big blue and grey barrels
>harvest rainwater -after 2 minutes or so the water is pure, harvest from a tarp or roof, there are lots of devices out there to help, such as rain water diverters.
huge list on water enjoy this link and memorize it, you can live without food, minimum shelter only for up to 30 days but only 3-6 days with no water!
Food
every time you buy food get some extra
> example; I bought some foil packaged portion fish at a store for $3 per bag, got two of them, tasty and long lasting
two weeks later, at dollar store same fish, 4-6yr expiriry, for .99c each, got 50
dehydrated foods
ready to eat meals
MREs – good for about 2-3 meals each package, so they are not too bad then at $8-$10 for one MRE, div by 3 meals
now start making your own ready to eat meals
Tools Knives
Caution; having a bad knife is worse than no knife!
folding blades with NO locks are bad, exceptions are the Swiss Army Knives and Multi tools
> use with caution and I never really use the knife anyways
Knife sharpener system
folding knives over 3″ with a locking blade
5″-8″ regular style fixed blade, full tang as in full metal till the end of the handle (incase you did not know what a full tang meant)
K-bar, kbar awesome US Marine, WWII fighting and utility knife.
Big Bush knife 8″-14″ yup you read it right
cutting down small trees, battoning etc
Kukri Knifes and Kukri Machete.
MTech Kukri knife similar to mine but mine has a wood handle

MTech Kukri knife similar to mine but mine has a wood handle

Custom Makers so support local;
that being said they are also more expensive but if the maker is good, you get what you pay for and more
MTech similar brand than the  Cold Steel but very good, US company but made in China. I have quite a few of their knives and like them a lot! Have not broken or hurt any of them yet.
MTech is a division of MASTER CUTLERY 
* Hatchets are dangerous!!
> why, top/front heavy so you miss a lot with them, no fulcrum action, many injuries to people especially kids with them
Tomahawks are better and can be used in a Defensive way as well.
Kukri’s are great can be used for most anything, but learning to through one, takes lots and lots of practises. You will ruin you good one, while learning to do this.
Here is an excellent link to a company in Nepal who exports and creates Kukris, follow the link to see some info on how to use and sharpen them.
Tools general
 pry bar
ax
rope
thin gauge wire
lots and lots of bits
Cold Steel Russian Army Spetsnaz Shovel (multi uses from digging to fighting, can also be thrown effectively )
Moe to follow, this will be a work in process, I will also add more images to this later.

Fishing gear small porty
trapping gear small porty
sleeping gear
slingshot/slingbow/take down bow with arrows

Navigation
Silva Compass and maps


Dogs
Dog pack as in Dog Back Pack (mine is a two part system, one part is the pack other part is the harness system)
-> great system, take off the pack for breaks and throw it back on quickly when you need to move out. Keeps the dog fresher and quick apply system keeps your temper under control!

Dog coat/blanket, even they get cold and wet, especially short hair dogs. You make them work, rub them down at night, through on their coat and it can be used as their bed as well for less cold nights
* you have a dog that is asleep, but still able to awake and alert you to the Zombie Hordes
water container/food container
collapsible food bowl or small rigid metal water bowl that nests with the food bowl
-> reason, you can heat up the bowl if the water freezes in cold weather
food, make them carry some of their own food, daily rations at least
fire making kit/first aid kit/utility knife/bug screen/sun screen
Bicycle
Bike Pack
Bike Trailer
spare tire/spare inner-tubes/wheel change kit/tire patch kit
front rack/back rack
bike with trailer hitch for attaching trailers/sleds/wagons/etc

Vehicle kit
yes your bug out bag, now lets see to the car/vans survival as well
tire repair kit
small porty 12v air compressor
first aid kit
engine oil/transmission oil/wind-shield fluid/brake fluid/

EDIT:
now I have added some stuff that you can not find at a local hardware store, although you can find or order 98% of this stuff from Canadian Tire, maybe there is an Auzzy Tire?
look around and get creative

I forgot I made another post, so here it is for reference and I will merge them and make one big post soon!

What I did for Prepping This Week 11 Feb 2011

Bug out Lists Locations,  TSHTF equipment Location list.

Hey there,

One of my New Years resolution is to do something for Survival / Prepping everyday. So far, I have done that everyday since Dec 29th, I started early.

So in the past week and a half I did the following;

Met with some very nice people about their property, it looks like it might work out. I could have a place to work and stay!

Received the book about looking for property (got the property, before the book, go figure!)

Found a great article on growing Plants and Fish in an Aquaponics set-up for long term food production and self sustaining system.

Worked on my Bug Out Bag, and Bug out Totes (more later)

Bug out Lists Locations, TSHT equipment Location list,
I am working right now on an often-overlooked piece of information for Preppers and Survivalists.  I am in the middle of making a list of lists as it were, the location(s) to my Bug out Kits and assorted tools I want to take.

This list is very important, so the TSHTF scenario has just happened, do you know where everything is? Ok if you already have a survival retreat location that is stocked, just grab your bug out bag and go, but like most of us, we need to keep out stuff with us, so where is it all? The house, the garage, the office, your spare vehicle or your get away vehicle, everywhere you normally keep your equipment and everyday stuff? With any form of anxiety or emergency, you forget where stuff is, you forget what you need to take, hey if your over 40 you already forget stuff, just imagine when there is even more pressure! This simple list just tells you where the stuff is; I think it is an overlooked item that is very important.

Step one, re-organize my Bug out Bag, update it and add missing elements.
Step two, get together my Bug out Totes, the ones that hold the extra tents, kitchen cookware I want also one for the food that is extra and stocked already. This handy checklist is to put on top of the tote/box so you know what is inside and what you need to add.

My Bug Out List is the for the big move, big Bug Out, the vehicle filling list, where is the material that will allow you to not only survive but live for a long time. This list keeps track of your items you want to take.

What is the difference you ask? Well a Bug Out Bag is for emergencies, or camping, that is your stuff you need this stuff for a few days or in a flood scenario, it is the just grab and run stuff. Now you list that you should also make is the one that has the location of your tools you want to take, the empty out the cupboards reminder list, the take the extra totes, the ones with the extra tents, and long term tools and materials you need or you want to make your life easier.

If you have a place to go, a property in mind, then this list is what you need to make so you do not forget those items. Hey I am already at the forgetful age, the age of damn forgot my lunch and Thermos now just for regular work, so how bad will you be when you need to remember to grab the extras during an emergency? With the hordes of traffic, you cannot just go back after you are already on the road, just leave it and come back later if you can. This list helps in location reminders and extra tool reminders that will help you keep going long after the others have run out of the 3 days of camping food that they brought along with them. Or some Prepper who brought most but forgot to bring along his/her tools and now sits at the side of the road with a simple rad hose adjustment, but cannot do that because you forgot the flaming tool box with the flaming screwdriver and tape (love the British for that exclamation, very cool).

Make the Bug Out Location List, keep it by the door, with your fire plan evacuation list, in your garage, anywhere that you will see it, grab it and start checking things off. If you have someone helping you, especially kids, they can see what needs to be done, they can help check off the box or item when it is in your car/vehicle and it will help them by having something to do and also by making them feel involved and important.

This is not a huge list by any means, below is a short example of mine to get you started;

  • Garage:
  • hand tools
  • power tools
  • power tools/battery powered
  • battery chargers e.g. Ryobi / Black and Decker
  • portable battery charger
  • Office:
  • Laptop
  • printer
  • paper
  • memo books
  • long handled brooms (for quick pole usage)

So the following is some areas that equipment is located

  1. Office:
  2. Spare Vehicle
  3. Kitchen
  4. Bedroom
  5. Bathroom

We need to use stuff everyday, and some of us can not afford 2 or 3 of everything, so this is a grab the items where it is located list, so you can remember when you are grabbing the items and not when you are 20+ miles away going to your safe location!

Bug out Lists Locations printout,
I think this is very important and something we should all be making!

Thanks for reading!

What I did for Prepping This Week 29 Jan 2011

Hey there,

One of my New Years resulution is to do something for Survival / Prepping everyday. So far, I have done that everyday since Dec 29th, I started early 😀

A couple of days ago I stopped into Dollerama in Bowmanville, I walked up the seasonal Isle on the way to buy some new ear buds for my laptop. What did my wandering eyes did appear? Well I was floored actually; there hanging on the shelf were survival and camping items!

1st I spotted a wee silver reflector survival tent, yes a Survival Tent.
… I said … WOW> out-loud.  Then I looked at it, it read survival tent for ultra light hiking, and the price was only $2 my next thought was it just couldn’t be any good at all! Today, I have changed my mind, I will go back and get me one or two of them.  I thought about it and decided that even if it is not any good for long term, what about for survival in wintertime. It is silver reflected, small and compact, just through it in a bug out bag or your winter car survival kit. (Canada, everyone should have one!) Ask the folks who were stranded on the 401 for a couple of days in their cars, running out of fuel, in a blizzard Dec 2010.

2nd Camping stove of the Ezbit design, will post pics later. $2 again see above, I rather doubt it will be as strongly constructed but, and here is the really big but, does it really need to be? Throw it in your Winter Car Survival kit, if it will last for about a week or so, that is more than enough time to get rescued and it will heat up food/drinks/soups to keep you alive. It came with some small fuel tabs as well.

3rd, No-Slip Ice Treads for your shoes. Got a pair same reason, Winter Car Survival Kit.

4th not in the Seasonal, purchased some lock/box cutter blades for use in my utility knives, I will put one in my Winter Survival Kit as well. Stainless Steel so they will not rust easily and the utility knife is so versatile.

Dropped by my favourite little recycle store, Envirosponsible in Whitby! Chad is a great guy; the store has everything to do with recycling, from Doors and Windows for your home to Water Storage Containers. I spotted some smaller wine making white plastic bottles. My plans for these include a small solar experiment, using passive solar through my West facing large windows to assist in generating some stored heat for the evening. Later I will use them for long-term storage for drinking water, emergency water in case the water goes out again.

Went back to Princess Auto and grabbed another couple of the reading glasses that I like so much, also a case for one of them and toss that into my Winter Survival Kit as well. I bought some normal readers for myself then thought about it and grabbed two that were double the rating, so 3.00 instead of 2.00, looking forward to using these instead of magnifying glasses. There is no way I can read labels with small print now, or directions or maps, so they are unquestionably part of my survival kit, as well as my EDC kit, Every Day Carry Kit

Follwed a link through M.D. Creekmore survival site, ordered some books from Amazon.ca cool site, by the way

I ordered some books on how to find property;
* Country Property Dirt Cheap: How I Found My Piece of Inexpensive Rural Land…Plus My Adventures with a $300 Junk Antique Tractor

Buying Country Land: Storey Country Wisdom Bulletin A-67

also a book on Underground Housing

EARTH SHELTERED HOUSING DESIGN: Guidelines, Examples, and References

Lastly I have decided to buy more food each time I shop than I need for the week. So If I need a can of Corned Beef Hash, I will buy 2 of them etc. etc, 1 goes to the cupboard the other goes to my Prepping Supply.
