    It is always good to learn primitive skills. One never knows when these skills might be needed.

    To true . Hike in the hill's of Colorado last spring , got caught by a very bad storm . A b.i.y. shelter and the old school techniques came in damn handy for keeping everyone dry and warm . well , maybe not warm , but we all lived through it lol

    I have been experimenting with fire starting skills lately.

    I am about a quarter of the way through production on a video about it. It has been really fun.

    My favorite so far is the old technique I learned from a military buddy.

    Cotton Balls and Petrolium Jelly Tinder. A tiny spark and it roars to life. Burns good and long if your are not shy with the Petrolium Jelly.

    Primitaive skills are something I have been very interested in since an early age. Too bad it took growing up and having to track down the knowledge all by myself.

    I have been passing the knowledge on to my kids. Because knowing is not nearly as important as sharing.

Sorta like a hand held deisel engine...... its a cool thing to
    Wow!

    This is very interesting. I may have to try this for my Fire Starting Video.

    SurvivalMonkey.com is a good source for a lot of info on primitive and survival skills.
