[quote name='TN RIDGE ROVER' post='226878' date='Apr 3 2008, 08:36 AM']The chisle and copper wire can be used for various breaking and entering, legal or otherwise in demanding situations! Katrina was one situation where these items may have proved usefull! A crowbar is better, but too heavy to carry.[/quote]



I still can't picture the use of the copper wire, but ok. BTW, I believe crowbars made from titanium are available.

Think of breaking into a vehicle, etc. with a coathanger. Copper wire rocks!
Message of Insight and Unity 

We go into the wilderness to fulfill our hearts and empty our minds of life's garbage.
The gear we leave behind and the challenges we encounter, 
Are methods we use to cleanse our spirits.
Of Survivalists and Bushcrafters, Primitive Technologists too, we are one.........

It is the wilderness within, we strive for first and always.
Not everyone can have a cabin in the mountains.
The thread that connects us, is fine like silk and strong as steel.
Together, the song of the wilderness is the song we sing!

"And can I say something else?"
Bushcrafting is "doing what you want to do." 
Survival is "doing what you have to do"
Primitive Technology is about all of the above........

Number one tip for me is sparking rod + cotton balls w/ vaseline.



In an Altoids tin, in my opinion there is no better pocket size firemaking kit.



And anybody can afford one. No skill required.

What kind of world do we live in where a man like me

can have a home, a wife, and four kids?



My wife says I've gone feral.

I think her assessment is conservative.

It has been a tested, true, and an instructed method for good reason for SO many years.



The cotton wicking/petroleum based tinder concept is 1. very simple, 2. highly effective, and 3. readily available anywhere in the world....



It is why it works and why one should trust it. Very simply put indeed, Bill.l



Be well,

Thanks Tap. See you in Sequoia?



Been thinking about this some more. I'll stick with sparking rod and PJ soaked cotton balls as best SKILL tip.



As for best KNOWLEDGE tip, it has to be a good understanding of Hypothermia.



Some of us old timers will remember a movie put out by SafeCo Insurance entitled "By Nature's Rules".

It was excellent. I think I saw it for the first time in the class I took from Ron at UCLA in 1978, though

I may also have seen it at BYU Survival in 1976.



I then arranged for SafeCo to loan me that film (and another entitled "The Thermal Wilderness") for

the summer I taught survival courses through Orange County Council of BSA. So I've seen it many times.



The characters are, of course, dated -- and sometimes corny -- but the information is timeless and well presented.



I wish it was available by DVD. I'd love to see Ron and Karen somehow acquire the rights to those

movies and reissue them on DVD. It would be a great service to all people who use the outdoors.
