  1. Top Five Survival Items

    I think I'll maybe approach this a little differently than some. But I'll wait till I can take a photo(s) tomorrow to back up my thoughts.

    Very much so.
  3. Who needs magnesium? Bah Humbug!

    There are others out there depending on where you are. Balsam Fir sap is a great water proof tinder in the PNW. I use white pine sap in the south a lot. Catch places where it has leaked around wounds in the tree and gather it using a small stick and a piece of bark. It will light with a spark also. In the Pacific North West the Balsam Fir may as well be a gasoline tree

    Yeah, it doesn't get much more simple man
  7. What's For Dinner Tonight?

    Simple southern chicken and dressing. This is one of my favorite dishes both in flavor and in cooking technique. It's simple, can be made in stages, and no stage requires babysitting, and you can do other things during them. Make a pan of corn bread Boil one whole chicken in a large stock pot (this one is an 8qt) If you are going all at once then once the cornbread is made tear into large pieces to allow cooling and drying. Then tear the chicken into pieces to cool. Save the broth, it was the reason for boiling the chicken crumble the corn bread into bread crumbs. Maybe a ten cups of bread crumbs here give or take. Add sage to taste. I like lots of sage and used about half this container. Ground goes further, but rubbed will work as well, it's just more coarse. Stir in the sage thoroughly and separate the chicken Take a couple of celery staks and cut into ¼ inch or so strips (smaller or larger if you prefer) and then dice. Probably a cup and a half here. Dice some onion. Once again about a cup to a cup and a half depending on how much you like oinion. Add celery and onions to bread crumbs and stir thoroughly Dip broth rather than pour to avoid getting any small bits of bone or gristle in the mix. Add broth to mix until very moist, almost like corn bread batter again. Add in the chicken, and stir thoroughly again. A note here. At this point however strong the flavor is now, it will be slightly stronger once it's been baked and a lot of the moisture lost. Transfer to baking pan and place in a roughly 350 degree oven for aprox one hour give or take, depending on how moist or dry you like yours. Then serve. I like it as an entree with vegetables, you can do less chicken and make it a side. My lunch and dinner for the next few days

    Thanks Muddy. Well...the doing well part is subjective, it has it's ups and downs and not exactly financially independent yet lol, but definitely keeping busy and enjoying it. As impractical as it may be, I'm loving it. Been waiting on that one for a very long time. Played with it some more today, so far it's doing very well. Well...TK as usual for the last four years, and now I am writing regularly for Self Reliance Illustrated, was published in last Sept issue of Soldier of fortune, and wrote a piece for the debut issue of Knife Journal that will be coming out soon. Yeah I know man, I make time to take the family and hang out with them to remind me why I'm pushing so hard Best laugh I've had in a while!

    I may, it certainly sucks roasted over a fire! If I do ever have to eat it again I'll try the stew... Thanks Doc! I have some thoughts in mind, so trying to be around more.

    Hi guys, I hope you're all doing well. I'm sorry I haven't been around as much, I've been really busy lately. I set out five years ago to become a writer and I got it. Lately I am writing for three magazines on a regular basis and another on an occasional basis, and part of the time I am working on a book. So that keeps me pretty busy. Lately my personal time has been in wild plant and photography studies, and photography & literary work for a few knife makers websites. I pop in and read pretty regularly here, but seldom take time to write anything on my phone. A lot of doors have opened for me, and life has clearly taken a turn for the surreal. Had anyone told me when I was seventeen, hiding in an abandoned building, eating roasted alley cat, that these times were ahead on down the path I would have told them they were insane.
