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

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

A future look into the day to day lives of white men in the ethnostate after societal collapse

2017-07-28 22:57:45 UTC  

@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

2017-07-30 01:53:29 UTC

2017-07-30 02:03:59 UTC  

👆 😂 this is so true

2017-07-30 09:58:07 UTC  

B-b-but whitey stole our resources an shieeet

2017-07-30 17:38:25 UTC  

@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?

2017-07-31 21:37:17 UTC  

@Brandon Ironside- ND That's exactly the weight I shoot for, including shelter and bedroll but excluding my waterskin. I'll post my gear list here in a second.

2017-07-31 21:54:24 UTC  

@Deleted User After seeing your Spyderco knife i figured you were a gear guy, your list looks really well thought out, I like the old school feel going with a waxed canvas backpack & wool gear, really nice.

2017-07-31 21:57:39 UTC  

Yeah brother I was 50/50 MOLLE though too. MOLLE was just coming in to the military as I was getting out and I've heard great things

2017-07-31 22:05:06 UTC  

@Deleted User The only potential downfall with them is the first generation black plastic frames. The guy i got mine from was in the national guard and had 3 broken black frames with his pack and after doing some research the black frames got fucked up in the molding process and are shit. The later tan and green frames you can get off ebay for 15 shipped and are bomb proof so look out for that if you get one. I remember you talking about the custom scales at the warrior dash thats super nice, almost so nice you dont want to use it haha.

2017-07-31 22:07:21 UTC  

Are they comfortable?

2017-07-31 22:08:04 UTC  

I know some infantry guys that say they hump north of 80 pounds with them. Ugh.

2017-07-31 22:11:43 UTC  

And that leatherwork makes mine look like child's play. I've been wanting to read more about how to form leather to stay like that, because then i would try some holsters but it looks like some expensive equipment is involved. Pretty big improvement over the ALICE in terms of better padded and placed shoulder and waist pads, and Seperate sleep carrier. The alice works pretty good and will do the job but the MOLLE packs are pretty comfortable for 65 bucks theres no comercial ruck that can compete at that price. Im guessing you used the ALICE when you were in?

2017-07-31 22:17:36 UTC  

Yeah we still had Alice. Not great. Here's the guy. He seems really cool and I bet he'd be willing to talk leatherwork with you

2017-07-31 22:19:35 UTC  

My pack weighs in right at 30 lbs as well

2017-07-31 22:20:04 UTC  

@Deleted User "Carefully molded using a method which was used centuries ago for making armor" My interest has been peaked, time to do some reading.
