Solo Survival: How to Survive Alone in the Wilderness for 1 week –Eastern Woodlands

Solo Survival: How to Survive Alone in the Wilderness for 1 week –Eastern Woodlands

In this video (part one and two) I go into the wilderness of North Eastern North America with only a knife and live off the land for a week. I document many of the crucial steps and tips and tricks that I do to survive in the forest. Skills shown are shelter, primitive fire, bark containers, water purification, fishing, weaving natural rope, bark shelters, trapping, edible plants, primitive cooking, fish traps….and tons more.

++Just had all my camera gear stolen, with half of my new video on it. Ugh, if anyone feels up to donating to help me replace it, please go to link. Thank you, https://www.gofundme.com/help-replace-tom039s-gear?member=351904

If you would like to support the next video, please help out and donate. Im happy to make these but the reality is that it takes time and $$ paypal.me/wildsurvival

Creating these videos is a blast…but can also be limited by $$…if you feel up to it, please chip in so that I can crank out more and more content like this. Visit my Patreon account and donate as little as $1 if you have the ability. Thanks,

After a few decades of being obsessed with collecting survival and primitive skills techniques, I am putting out these videos to demonstrate the skills and excursions found at my school, Wild Survival (wildsurvivalskills.com). Videos are focused on primitive skills, rewilding, tracking and nature awareness, living off the land, off grid living, indigenous skills, shelter building, primitive fire, water purification, trapping, hunting, bow making, flint knapping, primitive pottery, basketry, edible and medicinal plant preparation and numerous indigenous skills.

I began studying wilderness survival when I was 17 in order to have the ability to spend extensive periods of time in nature, seeking out empowerment without the need for external sources. I began studying in 1993 under Tom Brown Jr eventually teaching for Tracker Inc. I sought-out every old Native American teacher I could and eventually traveled the world living in very remote indigenous villages in the Amazon, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and Peru. My school teaches survival and primitive skills, nature awareness, how to live off the land, re-wilding and how to prepare for disasters. I strongly believe that experiencing survival living changes the way people approach their entire lives.

    Well in the mid west USA there’s too many damn chiggers and mosquitoes, and gnats you’d be covered in bites on the first day.

  40. The Spirit World on December 10, 2019 at 12:53 am

  41. m connor on December 10, 2019 at 12:57 am

    Zika, west Nile, several tick diseases. A week is not that hard. It’s the aftermath of diseases. Ive have friends with all of these

  42. Docprepper on December 10, 2019 at 12:57 am

    100x better than the majority of survival shows on television. Not to mention your video editing skills are on point.

  43. Blue Lotus on December 10, 2019 at 12:58 am

    Awesome!

  44. Gary Templemain on December 10, 2019 at 1:00 am

    An amazing survival video. Makes all those ‘back yard’ survival experts look like kindergarten experts. But I note that the real truth to survival is to know your area like the back of your hand. Here in OZ the true blood Aborigines know this and have survived, lived well and thrived for 60,000 years until white settlers came along. Settlers begged the local Aborigines for help so they might survive and gain a foot hold on the OZ continent. Once they were settled they killed the local Aborigines, like vermin. Just for historical record, there are NO Aborigines in Tasmania, not any more. Why? the whites killed or imprisoned every single one of them till death. Enough said about simple unarmed survival from nature’s bounty. You will eventually need state of the art weapons to survive!

    Most of this chit is a piece of cake but it’s the fire making that separates the men from the boys or women
