Folks,IF You have to leave in a hurry or IF you're caught out in an emergency situation You CAN survive with a Big knife & a book of matches!
To waterproof matches, get a box of canning wax (paraffin) it usually come in bars put one in a cake pan & melt it down then dip the matches in it fully to cover the head of the match & stick
You can always use the stick part for kindling
IF You're preparing to travel be sure to pack a box of STRIKE ANYWHERE kitchen matches,that way if You get into a rainy situation Be Patient, it Will stop eventually & You may not have a dry surface to strike Your matches from- You can use a zipper
IF You DON'T want to be found - use small dry kindling ( little smoke)
Folks, most people who get lost in the woods develop dysentery (the runs) because of change of diet.To stop dysentery peel off some bark from a Red Oak tree & boil it & strain it through a cloth & make a tea of it, this will stop the dysentery, strain it through a shirt or cloth if You have one...Remember the sock?
IF You are near a stream with nothing to eat or fishing equipment break off or cut a limb from a tree & use the forked ends as a spear to cacth fish,Remember to clean the fish before cooking.. You Must be patient to do this & No One is successfull the first time so Keep Trying!
You Have to Have Liquids so If You have none with You its alright to drink from a stream take a couple sips then wait a minute If nothing bad happens then drink some more
Liquids keep the bladder clean where Germs hybernate....
At my church they teach us these same things. We also have stored food. Food is all dry food, and we have a can sealer. They say it will stay good for 10 years or more the way it's sealed in the 1lb tin cans.
Also I have water. To save it and make sure it's safe is to use empty clorox jugs
Just when jugs get empty, shake out..NEVER wash them, and put the water in them. The drops in the jugs keeps the water drinkable.
I have dry beans, sugar, noodles and lots of other dry foods. Dry milk...too.
I have a box of things in my car for cuts, burns...etc. I keep blankets there too,
The Human race has been much inclined to wishfull thinking. even though Our enemy has told us they will never rest untill they have conquered the whole world, Most people won't even consider this possibility & instead focus their attention all the more on other things & so many hope that if they just ignore the threat of conflict it will somehow disappear.
When the time for open Resistance warfare suddenly comes, there will be hundreds of civilians wanting to fight for every one that is trained or equipped to do so.
Under these conditions each member of the various Patriotic groups that are making ready for this emergency will find him/herself acting as Leader of a new guerrilla band.
As part of Your self training,it becomes neccessary to give some thought as to how You can quickly train Your new recruits ,how You can maintain discipline & security. In short You must give some serious advance thought as to Your own abilities (and possible shortcomings) as a geurrilla Leader.
Past experience has shown that the successful geurrilla leader must possess certain minimal qualifications
1. He must have a strong personal conviction as to the righteousness of the cause for which He is fighting.
2.He must have the ability to infuse other members of His band with the same conviction.
3.He must be ablle to excersise effective command over His band through personal loyalty & political enthusiasm when no other means of discipline are available.
4.He must be able to keep secrets & organise even quite important actions so that as few people as possible know His plans.
5.He should be a born conspirator,capable of decieving members of His own band if this is necessary to ensure absolute security.
6. He must be able to act inventively & imaginatively so as to constantly sieze the initiative away from the enemy.
7.He should have risen to His position of leadership through His own abilities & exertions.
8.He should be physically vigourous & self-denying so that He can accomodate Himself to primitive surroundings.
9.He should have no addictions or strong habits that might distract Him at some crucial moment.
10.He must have the bulldog tenacity to see that important tasks are completed no matter what difficulties or obstacles may be placed in His path.
11.He must have the patience to remain inactive when such is the best course and to wait for exactly the right time to strike.
12.He must have the moral courage to accept full responsibility for His own actionss actions & those of His band.
