Junk On The Bunk: Improving a Russian Spade

This right here is good stuff people. Take notes.

Badlands Fieldcraft

There’s a somewhat overlooked piece of gear that I think is important out in the bush, and that is a small shovel or entrenching tool. I can see why they aren’t as popular as Swedish hatchets or custom knives in the current “bush craft” community; those are fun to use and nice to look at. A shovel never quite made it that high in most people’s esteem, probably because it’s a working tool through and through. A shovel implies sweat and work, not feather sticks and carving spoons. Yet if we look back at those who have fought and lived in the bush for extended periods of time, a small shovel was often part of their kit.

Train Now While You Have A Choice Not When You Are Forced Too.

Wyoming Survival

Today I taught my new Ecomms class to a great group of patriots. Its been two years since I have taught any sort of tactical class. It felt good to be back teaching in the tactical realm.

After class we were talking about other classes I teach and about the fact that I along with others want to get people as trained as possible before things really go south.
