My Country should do this,
our Province should do this,
the Region should do this
and the city I am in needs to do this…
Sad that nobody has the cahoonies to do what is right anymore, except actual Present and Past Military Members.
Pro Patria, and I very much mean…. Pro Patria .. Latin… look it up… non RCR types/wogs and logs along with civies !
Soldiers know peace, they pray for peace for the alternative is Hell on Earth.
Defend your freedoms before it is too late. In the old days People from all over the globe came to the Americas, Canada and the USofA where they left all the old crap and hostilities behind in the old world.
Now the Muslims pour into the countries, birth themselves into the countries and try to force Sharia Law down our thoughts. They try to restrict and rescind all the social gains for Women in the last 100 yrs. They try to commandeer everything in their path as the one and only path.
Yet, they are one of the children of the Book. Only one, not the one.
There is so much to say, some will unsubscribe some will cry foul, yet others will think, yet others will agree, hopefully all with think for themselves!
Pro Patria, while we still are able.
ps… big gov and big militarized outfitted gov employees with little training who are only a small step above Mall Cops in training and thoughts. This is you as well, get a grip and give the land back to the people !
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 following link is to the topic of winter fire on the CanAmPreppers.net forum
excerpt … If you are in the bush and had nowhere to make a fire but on the snow, and no rocks were available because they’re all under the snow and ice, what would you do? … read more…
The new YouTubers in action, building a winter fire and winter shelter heated by fire
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.
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.
To all of our American members both present, future and Guests.
Have a very nice day Cheers and Take Care
MD and Wolf Pack
Thank you for having this site. I was so over whelmed when I first started prepping that I didn’t know where to start. I reviewed every website I could find but this is by far the most informative site I have found. I now have a plan, have started stocking , and I am learning new skills to help. These suggestions are from YOUR site. Thank you! “
Now let me tell you that is a very big relief, and a source of good knowledge in itself. M.D. has actual practical skills and life lessons, others in The Wolf Pack have actual life skills and lessons that they will share. So are all of them Ex military, no not on your life and that is what makes it all work actually. There only tends to be one true bias, that bias is to come together and offer help and assistance.
