    What I like most about it is the lack of a voice-over that is normally there to hype up the "drama". It's pretty much as is and you're left to work out the tension and who's playing up for the camera or not.

    I managed to watch the first episode of Hillbilly Blood and that's the opposite, totally contrived and more like a mockumentary. Won't waste any more time on that one.

    Nuclear War Survival Skills
    Updated and Expanded
    This book should be in every American home and place of business. It should be a part of all civilian and military defense preparations. In this nuclear age, prior preparation and knowledge are the primary elements of survival during nuclear war, biological and chemical attack, and other man-made or natural disasters. This book provides that essential knowledge.

    One I just found linked from another site Trail Cooking loads of stuff on cooking dehydrating faux baking and even creating/planning menu's/meal's for use on the trail. Well worth a look as there is a massive amount of info. Possibly some useful data for those that collect data (USB key?) for future use.

    If you look at no other page just read this one DIY Meal Vs. Commercial Freeze Dried Meal.

    So I wasn't gonna bother posting anymore and Maybe I should PM...but I'm gonna ask here so I'll/others will know, I think I had 4 vids posted, I can't remember what they all were, 1 was how to sharpen knives anyway, I would have imagined that would have been ok in here?? What exactly was annoying about them?


    is this one alright?

    He's only partially right in that video about the smoke. Smoke is caused by inefficient burning - it's not to do with the materials. What he's right about is the upside down model. Kindling on top, secondary below and primary on bottom means that the larger wood gets heated to combustion before it's alight - that's what makes it smokeless. Smoke is caused by wood (or other combustables) being not heated enough to burning but already decomposing. If if combusted purely due to heat then it's efficient and has little or no smoke.

    Here's an example: https://www.milkwood.net/2013/01/07/making-an-upside-down-fire/

    The other thread you originally posted them in is a thread for what you did today, I'm pretty sure it wasn't you in the videos you posted but they are good resource videos so I moved them to the appropriate thread, this one, where we can discuss them and bounce ideas around.

    They were annoying theemigrant because they were in the wrong thread, as i said above.

    That video is fine, so are the others and please keep posting them because people do watch them

    if you want to discuss this further pm me, please don't do it on the thread. Cheers

    Perhaps the most entertaining overview of a wilderness EDC I've ever seen. Refreshing and super entertaining stuff!

    While I was googling for some survival gear lists I found this nice little document http://www.preppers.info/uploads/General_-_Compact_survival_kit.pdf . I then went back to the root of the site and discovered this a hoard of documents.

    I've seen a lot of the documents before as they are from the web but its still a good amount of info all in one place. The links page is equally comprehensive.

    Did a search of this thread and it didn't look like preppers.info has been linked to before.

    http://drillyourownwell.com/ Just wasted a very pleasant hour or so browsing this site. If you are lucky enough to have the right ground conditions (I do) then it explains in detail how to drill your own well.

    New to me, the Forward Observer site offers some interesting titbits of information. A lot of it is available only to subscribers, but some stuff is free and they have a weekly podcast that's worth checking out for useful information.

    How do you insert a video?


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 15,494 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Tabnabs


    get the youtube video you want to share, click on the share option under the video and it comes up with a url. Copy just the last bit with the random numbers and letters.

    On boards.ie page/thread click Post Reply (to get more options) and in the message box click on youtube button

    (taken from https://youtu.be/Xo0fMIdXQqs)
    Paste the random number and letters from the youtube site into this part and click submit reply.

    Only works for youtube videos, I don't think you can embed any other types?

    Just thought I'd share a youtube channel that I have been enjoying lately - https://www.youtube.com/user/Helsinkipop

    A Finnish guy with a taste for wild camping, often with minimal gear and with a lot of surplus items. He also has a very cutting sense of humour that adds a lot to the videos. The older videos are in English, but lately it's subtitled, but misses none of the information or humour in the translation.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,968 ✭✭✭ Stovepipe


    Try "Simon-a bloke in the woods" videos. very well made and informative.


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 15,494 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Tabnabs


    Coincidently am watching some videos from the Kent Survival channel currently and see they are friends.

    He has a very easy going presenting style, backed up by technical accuracy and a clear talent for making his stuff as well as a good head for describing purchased stuff.
