    Just watched this and you are absolutely correct when saying you need to practice the skills you need in the outdoors. There is so much "bs" out there that I more or less just get a laugh out of some of it, but the problem is people who are not experienced take it as gospel and it can get them into trouble. You need to know the basics and practice. I have been going on solo trips since I was 16 and I still practice all those skills. Thanks for the good advice my friend, people need to hear it.

  3. You should go to ShepherdSurvives website if you'd like to make it better guys.

  8. Yeah it's a good acronym Sage. sensible/salient skills, i think many of the other acronyms could be incorporated into the different elements, i.e taking each element and breaking it down/expanding them, what are the different options in a given situation/ weather condition etc.

  11. I wouldn't go into the wild if I had to plan every move, tell someone everywhere I go, when to go there, and when to get back.  Might as well stay home and go to the park.  I'm not concerned with making rescue easier, I'm concerned with having a wilderness experience.   The wilderness isn't diving, and if get out there and realize there's somewhere else I want to go, find a two hundred year old trail, or see something glinting on a distant mountain, I'm going to see what I can see.  If you aren't willing to do this, why on earth would you bother going?  The park is nice this time of year.   While I think you should know how to baton with a knife, batoning with a knife is stupid, and it always means whoever is doing it did something even stupider before leaving home.   I see far, far too many who say they don't take a hatchet because it weighs too much, and then they take eighty pounds of crap they don't need.  I also see dummies who say swinging a hatchet is too dangerous.  Fine, so baton with the hatchet.  A hatchet batons better than a knife because it's shaped to split wood.     Too much of what I see on every survival/bushcraft/woodsman channel is nothing more than YouTube incest.  It's like a virus that spreads everywhere.  One "expert" says it, and everyone else believes it, even though the real purpose of that expert is to sell you a more expensive knife.  And then a still more expensive knife a year later.  And then two even more expensive knives a year after that.  They may be fine knives, but usually no better than a fifteen dollar Mora, unless your aim is to process logs, which is what the "expert" tells you to do, not because it's a good idea, but because it's the only reason to buy his knives.

    DONT REFER YOUR COMMENTS TO OTHERS, RUFFEL FEATHERS. THIS IS ALL YOU. YOUR GOOD ENOUGH TO COME UP WITH ALL THIS YOURSELF.  GET TO THE POINT AND EXCPELL ON IT.  YOUR OPENION IS WHAT WE ARE LISTENING TO.  YOU  YOU DO A GOOD JOB. SO GO FOR IT.  STAY WITH IT.  STAY POSITIVE.  NO OPTIONS.

  13. Really like this acronym, a little long but very useful. If you are OK I would like to print it in my backpack.
    Thanks + Regards

  14. Nice video, this should be required for any one going into the woods/outdoors beyond the camp ground. One thing I think that is better than using my knife to break down wood is my "sharp" ax and a club (baton). To me the ax, hatchet or tomahawk makes more sense and actually is safer in the long run. This also keeps the knife you can use for the right tasks sharp and ready to serve you.

  15. Thank you and greetings from Poland
