Primitive Skills, Putting Them to the Test: Do you have what it takes?

Primitive Skills, Putting Them to the Test: Do you have what it takes?
Host: Sam Coffman “The Human Path”

Primitive Skills  Thanks to television and the internet, there are a lot of misconceptions today about what it actually takes to survive in the woods. In our first-world environment in North America, we grow up now without any real connection to the amount of work it takes to survive, let alone any kind of connection to our natural environment itself.

Primitive SkillsAfter returning from the deep jungle in Nicaragua and observing the indigenous Indians of that region, I feel it is important to call attention to the concept of primitive living skills. While it is one thing to learn the skills, it is an entirely different concept to have to live off of them (especially alone) indefinitely in the wilderness. If you are in a survival situation where you must live off the land, what are the most important basic tools you would want to have with you? What do you think are some of the most important implements you would need to make? Is the order of basic necessities (food, water, shelter, fire, security) always the same? How important are the mental aspects of survival and is there any way to train or improve that part of yourself? Continue reading Primitive Skills, Putting Them to the Test: Do you have what it takes?

Krutch and “The Geography of Hope”

Krutch , JosephKrutchKrutch, Joseph Wood and The Geography of Hope! Join us for this broadcast as Goat Hollow reads for us an amazingly prophetic story written over 50 years ago. Deceased author Joseph Wood Krutch (November 25, 1893 – May 22, 1970) and his story of the Western frontier through his eyes relates his  vision of the wilderness as it was then and what would become of it in the future. Seeing into the future Krutch gives us his remarkable vision of the transformation created by those that settled the frontier. People of the day wanting what had been untouched  because of desires to have and thoughtful needs making what was then a landscape lacking in beauty a wonder to behold.

KrutchWe often hear the lament, remember the past lest you repeat it, join in Wednesday and learn from the flip side.  How one man’s thoughts put down on paper become a prophetic vision of the future which is TODAY. A little over 50 years ago Krutch an American writer, critic and renowned naturalist /conservationist penned a “preppers primer” though neither he or his readers would relate to the term.  A common man expresses the desire of many for a simpler life contemplating the realities of the day and their impact on the future.  How will current action and choice impact not only the present but future, asking does it make a difference why the action is taken?  Choose wisely, because “common sense is at least the beginning of wisdom.”  After listening surely you’ll agree visionary should be added to the description of  Mr. Krutch. An eye opening journey from the past to today.

“There is no more perfect parable to illustrate what happens when know-how becomes more important than common sense- and common sense is at least the beginning of wisdom”

Hope! The Simpleton and Common sense.

The following article, written over a half century ago, I recently stumbled across and for myself it was one that I could not let go of. I read and re-read several times, each leaving me with new visions of what was and what is, of what I hope to be and what I hope I am.  I researched, found, and got permission to post this article here to share with you. I hope that you will take the time to read in it’s entirety and your thoughts good or bad will enjoy it as much as I and share with others.

The Geography of Hope:

Hope Baja“It is a lovely and terrible wilderness, such a wilderness as Christ and the prophets went out into; harshly and beautifully colored, broken and worn until its bones are exposed, its great sky without a smudge or taint from the Technocracy…. Save a piece of country like that intact, and it does not matter in the slightest that only a few people every year will go into it. That is precisely its value…. We simply need that wild country available to us, even if we never do more than drive to its edge and look in. For it can be a means of reassuring ourselves of our sanity as creatures, a part of the geography of hope”:

The geography of hope, as Wallace Stegner has described it, is a rapidly diminishing resource on the American continent in an age in which hope itself becomes increasingly scarce. In one of its most recent “Exhibit Format” publications, the Sierra Club of California has produced a stunning memorial to one of the few lands left whose harshness, isolation, and beauty remains biblical amid the clutter of the twentieth century; the long peninsula of Baja California. With a pungent, reflective text compiled from the works of naturalist-philosopher Joseph Wood Krutch, and the artistry of Eliot Porter’s camera, Baja California and the Geography of Hope is a monument to a land not yet altered to man’s purposes.

hope bajaThe  discovery of America meant different things to different people. To some it meant only gold and the possibility of other plunder. To others less mean-spirited it meant a wilderness which might in time become another Europe. But there were also not a few whose imaginations were most profoundly stirred by what it was rather than by what it might become.

The wilderness and the idea of the wilderness is one of the permanent homes of the human spirit. Here, as many realized, had been miraculously preserved until the time when civilization could appreciate it, the richness and variety of a natural world which had disappeared unnoticed and little by little from Europe. America was a dream of something long past which had suddenly become a reality. It was what Thoreau called the great “poem” before many of its fairest pages had been ripped out and thrown away. The desire to experience that reality rather than to destroy it drew to our shores some the  best who have ever come to them. Continue reading Hope! The Simpleton and Common sense.

The Gear, Your Skills, The Wilderness

Mountains I am liberty skillsKnow the gear, your skills, and the wilderness before heading off into the mountains. I want to share on this episode of I Am Liberty what I have learned after a weekend up in the Appalachians. I have learned a lot and might even consider such a camping trip to be an utmost necessity. Not just for deflation of the body and mind but to put your skills and tools to the test. Taking the time to get out there on your own and really see what you’ve got is an important task. I made the trip with my good friend Mike D and aside from really enjoying ourselves we learned some very valuable lessons.

Fire Starting skillsThere were things that worked and things that didn’t. We hiked for about 7-8 miles on our first full day on the mountain and encountered many challenges. We sought out food sources, filtered water and remained cautious of the wildlife around us. I would have to say that the most understated aspect of foraging for wild edibles is the time and energy that goes into processing them. Especially certian roots and nuts. The challenges of facing off against hunger and the trimming and boiling of certain wild edibles was a bit much for two weary travelers.

The cost of this trip was trivial compared to the skills Mike and I learned. As we struggled to hack away and collect enough fire wood for keeping warm through the chilly nights on the mountain top it I was humbled. It even furthered my thoughts on getting efficient in a fallen world the key is to work now to assure that this world doesn’t collapse. Also if it does we want a strong community back bone to aid in these trials. Overall it was a great learning experience. I would highly recommend a bug out to the wilderness to test equipment, skills as well as your own stamina and will.
