Ferrocerium rods are a popular fire starter among survivalist, and one of the best choice you can make in "starting a fire". Some tips for you  1. Scrape Off The Paint Many spark rods are coated with a slick black paint to prevent corrosion and to keep them from scraping against each other during manufacture and transport to the marketplace. This paint will need to be scraped off before the sparks start to fly.  2. Scrape Hard "like you’re trying to break it!” Dainty scraping won’t remove enough material from the rod or provide enough friction to ignite the scrapings.  3. Pick The Right Fuel Spark rods don’t light everything on fire. You’ll need natural plant-based fuzz for the tinder on this ignition method.  4. Move the Rod, Not the Scraper If you hold the scraper (or the knife) still and pull the rod away (imagine you’re pulling the cord to start a chainsaw or push mower) you won’t knock the tinder all over the place. You’ll still get your shower of hot sparks, without the destructive follow-through of the scraper.  As always: have fun! . .

was that unlike the classic backpacks that we all use is not limited by the walls and you can load without problems even to load of firewood back to camp or quartered deer (I moved between 2 locations 1 load of wood and it was a easy transport). Knowing how to create this type of resource in the woods is an important skill for every aspiring "woodsman" and is also an excellent opportunity to test our ability.  If you've ever built and used Roycroft pack frames, I'm always interested in learning new tips and tricks to make mine better. Share your best tips in the comment!

Let me introduce you to the Roycroft Packframe. Just three sticks and some cordage and it can carry remarkably big loads, stably, over pretty decent distances.  Some and it only takes a few minutes to make from things around you in the woodland.  1 knife, 1 handsaw and you are ready to go . .

A bit of rest after hike, some relax and some food to regain energy, I know it is not so much in my style but where it is forbidden to light fires the field stove can work miracles. . .

There is something humbling about mountains. Maybe it’s their tall and grandiose appearance or the initial intimidation when you cast your eyes on it. But ultimately, the most humbling part is the sense of accomplishment that you get after climbing one. The feeling of achievement, appreciation for the journey, and the feeling to be alive. . .

On the mountains there are sacred places, difficult to reach but of a unique beauty that gives the traveler the perception of the spirits that live there.  This photo is not retouched in any way I hope to be able to convey to you, even minimally, the same feeling that I felt.  Go, live, explore. . .

Fire is one of man's greatest multitools. Think about it. Without it, we would have next to nothing. Tools, food, water, clothes, and warmth among other things have come from it. Well, now you can make it yourself, the way native americans once made it. I know it as the bow drill, but I've also heard it called fire bow, fire drill, fire by friction, and rubbing two sticks together. It basically works by spinning a piece of wood in a socket of another piece of wood. This creates an extremely small coal, which, with the utmost care, can be blown into flame.  Some step for you:  1- chose your wood, soft for the base, medium for the spindle, hard for the handhold  2- make a bow long at least as your arm and use the right cordage (paracord is good but bankline is way better)  3- select the right tinder, a cotton like tinder is the best, put it near your body, you will need it soon  4- pratice pratice pratice, never give up  5- have fun! It helps a lot in the Learning process . .

There is something incredibly exhilarating about exploring abandoned buildings, and at the same time very sobering. As adventurer and survivalist, seeing Nature reclaiming her land is always very powerful. Modern civilisation has been built by beating Nature down, by building towering cities and concrete jungles. If urbex has taught me anything, it is that Nature will always win. I've seen trees growing out of walls and flowers blooming through cracks in cement floors. Nature will always be stronger than us and urbex is one of the best ways to see the balance of power. . .

72 hours and 5 items to take with you.  Which ones would you choose?  this are mine!  1 CANTEEN, good for boiling water, excavated, cooking, gathering.  2 SPACE BLANKET, excellent as a shelter, emergency blanket, fire reflector, improvised backpack.  3 BANKLINE, robust and ready for any type of knot.  4 BIC LIGHTER, an immediate flame to light the fire, has its problems with water or cold but a flame is hard to beat if you have to light a fire.  5 URO by wandertactical, MY KNIFE, good for any task, my favorite of the list.  What are yours? . .

@thegrayl filter.  I've already talked about it in my posts but I wanted to show you in detail its practicality and ease of use.  The thing that I find exceptional about this product besides its immediacy is the possibility of being able to fill other containers in order to be able to collect  more drinkable water as possible.  For survival I could not recommend better.  Thanks @the_primitive_wanderer for the video, bro you are always the number 1. . .

The savotta rucksack, is really great.  3 hours of walking with moderate slope and a nice load on the shoulders, plus 1 hour of pure exploration off the path that led me to a lake forgotten by time.  It is in all this that my backpack has managed not to weigh me down and to make my journey easier ... a jaakari ready for a thousand adventures. . .
