If you don't like the way I formatted this or have suggestions let me know

Deleted User 2017-07-25 15:28:07  

@Mark Vandal This is great stuff. My family is big into building fires; we tend to do them the log cabin version, though it has its downsides - my experience has been that they need to be done correctly or else the kindeling won't get the coals burning properly. Knowing different styles is important.

Mark Vandal 2017-07-25 15:53:08  

@Deleted User different styles have different purposes. We can get into different survival fires sometime like fires in holes and how to build one on wetlands and snow. I always preferred teepee. It's simple, easy and quick.

Dakota fire hole

Deleted User 2017-07-25 16:03:16  

I like ⛺️ as well

Thomas Morrow 2017-07-25 16:05:13  

I really like camping in the open air when the weather's good enough

Deleted User 2017-07-25 16:05:57  

Haha no I typed teepee and it out that emoji

Deleted User 2017-07-25 16:06:13  

Upside down fire is also pretty sexy

Mark Vandal 2017-07-25 17:30:41  

@Thomas Morrow that's the one. Forgot the name

Mark Vandal 2017-07-25 17:31:01  

Good for windy conditions and for concealing light

Mark Vandal 2017-07-25 17:34:33  

I never get to go camping anymore. Miss it

Mark Vandal 2017-07-25 17:35:05  

You spend your whole life outdoors when you get to that point where you can no longer find the time it sucks

Thomas Morrow 2017-07-25 17:39:47  

I know the feeling

Deleted User 2017-07-25 17:40:55  

At some point, we're gonna have IE bush trips

Thomas Morrow 2017-07-25 17:41:40  

That'd be awesome

Mark Vandal 2017-07-25 18:02:20  

dixie was supposed to have a trip comming up but i havnt heard much of it in a few weeks

Deleted User 2017-07-26 00:28:23  

I know we are just starting out here, but I think a piece on gutting and cleaning fish would be very useful. Perhaps even one for deer?

@Deleted User @Mark Vandal I'll get to work on that i have done both ill put it on the list, thanks for the suggestion.

Mark Vandal 2017-07-26 22:26:01  

What kind of things are y'all curious about? If you have any requests or suggestions on lessons let us know

Deleted User 2017-07-27 00:20:29  

I skin a pig every February but I've never skinned a buck. I hear it's similar. Maybe some pointers on that sort of thing?

Thomas Morrow 2017-07-27 00:37:02  

Cover a bunch of basics. Most people don't know very much about hunting, fishing, outdoor survival etc in this day and age

Deleted User 2017-07-27 00:39:53  

True. Something as simple as tying a hook on a line could be of use

Envian 2017-07-28 18:50:47  
Thomas Morrow 2017-07-28 19:28:38  

I've always wanted to try a self feeding fire

Thomas Morrow 2017-07-28 19:29:52  

Anyone have any personal experience with one?

Mark Vandal 2017-07-28 21:38:57  

Never done it. While camping we would throw a big log on when we went to bed and in the morning we would get it going again with the coals. In a survival situations we would have a watch rotation to feed it. Never bothered to make that

Thomas Morrow 2017-07-28 21:51:58  

Yeah same here. I think it's an interesting concept though

@Envian thanks for sharing that I watched the whole video. Very 😎

Deleted User 2017-07-28 22:58:15  

I see he used an upsidedown fire as well. I'm gonna start tinkering about with those

Thomas Morrow 2017-07-28 23:00:01

@Brandon Ironside- ND That's some sick leatherwork broseph

Brandon Ironside- ND 2017-07-30 19:02:05  

@Deleted User Thanks, I'm still pretty new at it but its pretty easy to pick up.

Deleted User 2017-07-31 13:34:38  

@Brandon Ironside- ND Good stuff. What's the weight on your loaded MOLLE II?

Mark Vandal 2017-07-31 14:11:50  

I'm going to work on some campfire cooking lessons. Is that something y'all would be interested in or would that be a topic for cooking

Deleted User 2017-07-31 14:55:03  

@Mark Vandal They probably won't get to covering it over in the <#338763700750123009> channel so here seems good.

Brandon Ironside- ND 2017-07-31 21:26:12  

@Deleted User I just threw it on the scale weighed in at 30 pounds in summer configuration(No tent, no winter clothes, light summer sleeping bag. & no water). Your doing the Heathen Hike right? Whats your setup for that?
