dixie was supposed to have a trip comming up but i havnt heard much of it in a few weeks
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?
What kind of things are y'all curious about? If you have any requests or suggestions on lessons let us know
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?
Cover a bunch of basics. Most people don't know very much about hunting, fishing, outdoor survival etc in this day and age
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
Anyone have any personal experience with one?
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
Yeah same here. I think it's an interesting concept though

@Envian thanks for sharing that I watched the whole video. Very 😎
I see he used an upsidedown fire as well. I'm gonna start tinkering about with those
I love primitive technology's channel. Lots of cool stuff
👆 😂 this is so true
B-b-but whitey stole our resources an shieeet
@Deleted User Thanks, I'm still pretty new at it but its pretty easy to pick up.
@Brandon Ironside- ND Good stuff. What's the weight on your loaded MOLLE II?
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
@Mark Vandal They probably won't get to covering it over in the <#338763700750123009> channel so here seems good.
@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?
@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.

@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.
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
@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.
Are they comfortable?
I know some infantry guys that say they hump north of 80 pounds with them. Ugh.
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?
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
My pack weighs in right at 30 lbs as well
@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.
Lol it's a pretty reasonable weight if you're in decent shape
I always liked the Alice pack but the new rucksack with the built in wet weather bag always worked for me
