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

@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.

2017-07-25 15:53:08 UTC  

@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

2017-07-25 16:03:16 UTC  

I like ⛺️ as well

2017-07-25 16:05:13 UTC  

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

2017-07-25 16:05:57 UTC  

Haha no I typed teepee and it out that emoji

2017-07-25 16:06:13 UTC  

Upside down fire is also pretty sexy

2017-07-25 17:30:41 UTC  

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

2017-07-25 17:31:01 UTC  

Good for windy conditions and for concealing light

2017-07-25 17:34:33 UTC  

I never get to go camping anymore. Miss it

2017-07-25 17:35:05 UTC  

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

2017-07-25 17:39:47 UTC  

I know the feeling

2017-07-25 17:40:55 UTC  

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

2017-07-25 17:41:40 UTC  

That'd be awesome

2017-07-25 18:02:20 UTC  

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

2017-07-26 00:28:23 UTC  

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.

2017-07-26 22:26:01 UTC  

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

2017-07-27 00:20:29 UTC  

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?

2017-07-27 00:37:02 UTC  

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

2017-07-27 00:39:53 UTC  

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

2017-07-28 19:28:38 UTC  

I've always wanted to try a self feeding fire

2017-07-28 19:29:52 UTC  

Anyone have any personal experience with one?

2017-07-28 21:38:57 UTC  

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

2017-07-28 21:51:58 UTC  

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

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

2017-07-28 22:58:15 UTC  

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

2017-07-28 23:00:01 UTC  

I love primitive technology's channel. Lots of cool stuff

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

2017-07-30 19:02:05 UTC  

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

2017-07-31 13:34:38 UTC  

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

2017-07-31 14:11:50 UTC  

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

2017-07-31 14:55:03 UTC  

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

2017-07-31 21:26:12 UTC  

@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?
