  1. What happened in the last season when he was there was that he stayed past his usual season. The seasonal bears he knew went into early hibernation and other stranger bears came in. The seasonal bears had set eatting patterns, sedge grass, clams, and salmon. Other foods were not on their agenda. The stranger bears did not have this same seasonal agenda and Tim was on the menu. In the bear attack Tim was the first one attacked and told his girl friend to run away repeatedly. And from the girls diaries, it appears that she knew the risks. Everyone wants women in the military till they get captured tortured and raped, and the public gets outraged. Then the military is the bad guy for letting it happen, even though they didn't want to put women in that position. If you want gender equality you have to accept the consequences and benefits of equality, and not just the benefits. I do not baby people on the choices they make,Tim paid the price for his choices and so did his girlfriend. At the same time i recognize the skill Tim had with bears.  You really have to think about it. 12 years in bear country where most people wouldn't last a day doing what he did. That by itself is impressive by any standard because he has created that standard. No one else has come even close to what he accomplished. Anyone studying grizzly psychology will study Timothy Treadwell.

  2. I'd thought I would post this film for anyone who has not seen it yet. Despite what you might think of him, he was a master of his craft. You do not make it 12 years living in grizzly bears faces without being a master of grizzly bear psychology. Before grizzly bears he was an alcoholic that was going no where. I believe that without the grizzly bears he would have never known happiness. I do think something as simple as pepper spray would have saved him, but he did make his choice and he paid the consequences for his actions.  :(



  3. ~ Feed a cold, starve a fever.  :blink:


    That's another one NOBODY can ever remember right.  :nono:  It's worthless teaching it, and it can actually do harm.


    Eat when you feel like eating, even when you're sick!  If you have a fever, try to drink something cold. It helps you feel better. Most people with fever, don't feel like eating anyway.


    Again i believe thats another quote you have wrong.  "Its feed a cold, starve cancer."

  4. I've heard a different topic talked about on talk radio that applies here. The short of it is that no one has the right to sue the government for negligence. The topic was about border security, but equally applies here. Which goes to show that the only people that will take care of you is yourself and possibly your family(not everyone has a happy family).

  5. They force people to have car insurance so when a guy crashes into you he can pay for the damages. They force us to pay taxes so we can have hospitals, police, fire departments, ambulances, drinking water brought to our homes, sewer disposal, police, a standing army. Do I need to go on.


    I know its fun to talk about loss of freedoms but without government you couldnt leave the house safely. Remember the draft? Uncle Sam was planning to send me to Viet Nam on my high school trip.


    The media focuses on the tea party and they miss the point. It isnt about left or right but the influence of big money buying up the congress.The survivalists out in the woods are looked upon to be radical nut cases that want to over through the government but in fact they are preparing to defend themselves not attack any body.Attacking the government would be suicide.


    Its a shame and an embarrassment to the length the right is going to to get themselves back in office. I dont care if they do. Then they can face the mess the country is in and show us how to fix it. Fat chance of that happening with either party.


    Until this country can come to grips with unregulated Capitalism and corporate greed and big money influence in Washington we will continue to see the demise of the middle class and the loss of more freedoms.


    I dont see any light at the end of the tunnel so Im going to keep on trying to be prepared as best I can and be prepared to defend my family. Thats why were here.


    If you do not want to pay car insurance you have the option to never drive it on public roads or even own a car, . The Obama care is not a tax. Its telling you how to spend your money, if you do not spend your money the way the goverment tells you, you get a nice IRS penalty. At one time you had the option to pay a fire tax. If you didn't pay they would let your house burn down. In Morehead City NC, a community was purely on well water for drinking water, but the gov't forced them onto public water systems.

    Then the question becomes, how many small freedoms do we give up before they start taking big ones? As it stands now, if you put the left in charge you will lose freedom because they can't impliment their idology without doing so.


    The answer to our countries problems is a redistribution of work and power, not wealth. We currently have too few individuals doing most of the work in America. What we need to do is to get more people to do more work. Example: In corporate owned mega farm communities, the people mostly live in shanty towns with little in offered services, and are unable to support other businesses. In communities surrounded by family farms, the towns and cities are larger and more prosperous than those of the mega-farm communities, and are able to support other businesses. Franchise(individually owned) chain resturants make more people wealthy than resturant chains that are 100% corporate owned. Which will make more people prosperous, 10 logging companies in a state, or 1 mega logging company? 10 logging companies creates 10 owners, 1 mega company has only 1. Allow people to do what ever they want, just limit how much they can do, so others have more opportunity to work.


    As for the redistribution of power, give more power to the states and cities. Like with my previous health care solution. You can let individual cities regulate the Hospitals in their district, like they do with electric companies. They won't let the Hospitals charge to much or they will not get re-elected, and they won't let Hospitals not get paid enough or they won't have a Hospital. If you live in that city and you do not like its health-care system, you can vote at the ballot or you can vote with your feet. If the gov't runs health care theres nothing you can do but take it up the butt. Let the states completely run welfare programs. They can collect the taxes and make their own policy on how it is to be implimented. If they people don't like it they can vote new people in or move to another state.


    Another idea is to offer incentives for people to make co-ops(where every individual in the company owns a equal share of the company and get equal amount of profit that the compay generates). Such as free to almost free gov't loans to groups of individuals starting a business together as a co-op.


    On another note, the teaparty was started because a large number of people felt that they were not being represented by either party.


    But in the end lol, we are all just pissing in the wind on this thread. Unless we take our ideas past this board, we are all just mearly venting our frustrations on eachother.

  6. I contacted the Woodlore Team at Raymears.com about it. They replied..


    "Hello Thank you for your email.


    Unfortunately you can never rely on animals or birds for picking mushroomsor fungi that we can consume. They all eat things that we cannot.


    Kindest regards Diana TaylorSenior AdministratorWoodlore."


    All Well, I just thought it would be cool to use animal psychology here.


    As for no food value. http://mushroominfo.com/benefits/

  7. The only thing I have against Obama care is that Americans lost freedom. We are "forced" to buy healthcare against our will. I would rather die a screaming death from bone cancer than to lose any freedom.


    An easy alternative is to mandate that hospitals offer pre-paid healthcare and localize healthcare. 50,000(small city) people paying $50 a month is 2.5 million dollars a month in income for the hospital. Double the monthly fee and its still affordable. Hospitals can run off these amounts of money a month. Doing this you take out the middleman(insurance companies). All insurance companies do is take your money and hand it to someone else. Much for efficient if the money changes 2 hands rather than 3.

    Not sure if this has been put on the forum yet, but I found this to be an interesting documentry on solitary survival in the wild. Lets you observe what it maybe like to survive alone in the wild yourself. You can learn from his experiences and see what he is doing right and wrong and take it to the next level. Personally I think he should have bought a moose and bear hunting license. I know in Alaska to have to hire a guide to hunt either one, so im not sure if its the same for Canadian Yukon. Beaver traps would have been useful too. Also many people are more socially dependant than others. If you are high on the {I} (independant, people oriented, outgoing, loves interaction and attention), and S(people oriented, reserved, submissive) on the {DISC} personality test, it means you are a socially oriented person. My personality is {C} (independant, work oriented,reserved, likes to work alone) and {I} which means i am equally happy  alone or with people. I personally think Ed Wardle is a {D}(independant, work oriented, outgoing ,authoritative,) and {I} complex. With his {I} being very strong he lacked people to interact with that he needed more with his personality complex.


    D/S(example: Laverne Hooks from Police Academy) and I/C are rare. Common personality types are D/I, D/C, I/S, S/C.

  9. Thx for the info the link helps a bit. Ray Mears demonstrated sap tapping on a Birch tree, he used a wood drill and carved a wooden slide tap to collect the sap. This got me interested because i never thought of tapping any tree than a maple before. I wondered what were all the other trees you can tap.  I read somewhere there were like over 200 different trees you can tap.


    Btw when harvesting sap, can you just continously harvest the sap during the spring and fall or is there a limit you can harvest before the tree takes permanent damage?

  10. After watching Ray Mears i became interested in tree sap harvesting. Im pretty good at finding things on the web, if you have read most of my posts, but havn't been able to find any comprehensive guide on tree sap harvesting. Im looking for a comprehensive guide on edible saps and product saps, such as for wilderness grooming. I got some basics. You can harvest them in the spring and fall. Three of the trees you can harvest is maple, sweet birch and ash. If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.
