Build an EDC first aid kit.

Have you ever taken a look online for a personal first aid kit?

Bulletproof Firestarting Kit

Camping is just sleeping in a tent without a fire. Ever since the first caveman figured out how to create a fire it has been considered an essential outdoor skill. Whether you prefer to be ultra minimalist and start a fire with two branches or prefer the more reliable method of a can of gas and a box of matches fire is essential. We can cook with it, purify water, maintain our body temperature, keep critters at bay, and provide a general sense of security. Now, while a can of gas is a quick and dirty way to set a blaze there are much safer and more compact options.

Top three firearms to survive anything

Yep were gonna open up this can of worms again. I've got my opinions you have yours share them in the comments section below.
Any firearm could theoretically be a survival tool and we all have an opinion on what survival really is. For me survival is an everyday thing. I want to have my tools work to gather food, defend my home, and keep me safe at camp.

The 10 c's of survivability

Just ten items. Ten items that will keep you alive as long as you have the knowledge to use them. While the idea of going out for a weekend with just this minimal kit may seem absurd to some of you the weight savings make it well worth having to be a bit ingeniutive. I'm not sure the originator of the 10 cs is but I learned it from Dave Canterbury both in his books and on his youtube channel and I'd like to say thank you Dave. So here's the 10 main pieces of gear you need to make it.

Got back from another overnighter

Once again I arrived later than I wanted to. This time with about an hour and a half of daylight left. So I hurried down to the site and started gathering deadfall to assemble a lean to and elevated sleep platform. Deadfall was easy to gather for the platform but the two bottom runners would have taken way to long to cut.

Heading back out

My vacation isn't quite up yet and my trip a few days ago left me less than satisfied. I got there way to late in the evening and broke camp pretty much as soon as I woke up. Not this time around. I'll be heading out much earlier this time around so I don't have to set camp in the dark. I have a tent in the truck as a back up but the plan is to just set up a tarp lean to. This weekend should be somewhat warm for Wisconsin so well see how that goes. I made a few changes to my loadout.

My first cold weather bushcraft trip

My plans to wake up early in the morning fell through. I woke up late and didn't arrive until 5:00 pm. Upon arriving I had to shovel a massive snowbank out of the way so I could pull the truck off the road. It was already getting dark by the time I got done shoveling a parking spot so the first priority was gather firewood and get a fire started. After a bit of a hike through deep snow I dropped my gear by camp and started gathering wood.

Gearing up for my first cold weather bushcraft trip

I've been planning a trip for quite some time now. I took a week of vacation from work because that was the original plan, one week. Well I'm married to a beautiful woman and have an adorable daughter and a week away from them just isn't going to work for any of us.
