    I thought using leaves to wipe your butt is fine but why not carry a machete and just use the wood to get the long smooth of the wood’s extra feather and use it wipe your butt with which I done it much time trying making long thing feather paper on the wood best I could but never tested is it ok to wipe your butt with it then again you can still somewhat use it to burn it even thou it is cover in poop because your poop is still fuel in some ways but recommend not put your food overdue of "toxic level depending on"

    This nibba is wearing socks while standing in the river

  20. Daniel O'Leary on December 4, 2019 at 5:59 pm

    8:50 My dad’s Army-issued manual says that in cold weather environments, you can melt the snow by putting it in a plastic bag and putting the bag in an inner pocket while on the move. Any body heat you might give off will melt the snow too.

  21. Nikolaus Vega on December 4, 2019 at 5:59 pm

    Tip : tampons cannot be used to treat deep wounds or blood loss. This is a rumour. Apart from that great video!

  22. Igor Sidelkovsky on December 4, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    hey ,if anyone else wants to learn about
    red cross earthquake survival kit
    try Lonnonnar Survival Quickie ( search on google ) ? Ive heard some great things about it and my co-worker got cool results with it.

  23. Raccoon Boye on December 4, 2019 at 6:01 pm

    Slopping mud over a smooth rock and letting it dry makes a good bowl you can fill with water to boil and drink safely. I’ve been legit working on a survival guide whenever I get bored in class in which you are lost with nothing but the clothes on your back… mud plays a very large role in this guide, being used for all manner of things like creating tools, casting, and insulation. Let me know if it sounds like a good idea or if I should rewrite some stuff.

    Edit: however it would be a lot easier to just shape a bowl, then do you stuff. Much less trial and error.

    rename this video to best tinder for your fire

  32. Matis Joubert on December 4, 2019 at 6:08 pm


    Is that plastic straw??!!

    Im calling the green peace

  33. All Powerful Mitochondria on December 4, 2019 at 6:11 pm

    Do NOT use sanitary napkins as tinder!!! They usually contain dioxin which is a known carcinogen. Unless the brand explicitly says they don’t have dioxin in it, I wouldn’t take my chances. Like I’m probably already going to get get cancer from my phone. I don’t need to up my chances.

  34. Dweebadoo on December 4, 2019 at 6:12 pm

    Can anyone tell me what’s that tool called that he uses to light the piece of wood 1:19

  35. Piper Mccoy on December 4, 2019 at 6:12 pm

    OK folks make sure you carry a condom LOL

  36. Tiny on December 4, 2019 at 6:12 pm

    I noticed at 12:54 you have a hatchet, that hatchet was recalled because apparently the head is not properly attached and it can come flying off. I know its a great price but just get a Gransfors or at least a Fiskars if you cant afford it

  37. Senpai Bryn on December 4, 2019 at 6:16 pm

    12:12 a what I can’t figure out what that is

  38. Tyler Corcoran on December 4, 2019 at 6:18 pm

    This is super useful when you come prepared in survival, but let’s say you don’t got any of that or left stranded somewhere. You don’t got any of that, so most importantly have a sharp blade for survival. Besides that your information is fairly accurate and useful. So thank you for that.

  42. Dicky Anders on December 4, 2019 at 6:25 pm

    no way i thought cat tails were called poo on a stick

  43. Bert Jones on December 4, 2019 at 6:26 pm

    You can’t make a fire out of ice condom at all ever easier to rub 2 sticks together with shoe lace and feathers or dry back and also the charcoal under the eyes does not work either part from that Gold

  44. Igor Kralnova on December 4, 2019 at 6:26 pm

    For snowblindness, if you have extra space in your bag, try and fit some uv-protective glasses in there. For when you don’t have charcoal.

  47. Daniel Starks on December 4, 2019 at 6:30 pm

    This was well done

  48. Asura Heterodyne on December 4, 2019 at 6:31 pm

    12:10 what was that word? I’m trying to look up the item of clothing and all my Google searches are coming up as a racial slur, not clothing.

  49. Lissette Escobar on December 4, 2019 at 6:32 pm

    What’s the thing he’s using to light the spark?

  50. Zerodovah on December 4, 2019 at 6:33 pm

    Actually, both sides of a space blanket reflect heat. It doesnt matter which side nor does one cool you and the other warm you.
