Oh I know them...don't get to put them to practice as setting of trap around these parts are not looked at too highly out of season. Not even sure
when "random unlucky bird season" is. Fish traps, especially the rock channel method, require time and unpesky eyes to come prolling by.
I agree that A4 size would be way too large to be useful. Think more along the size of Henry Jones's Grail Diary in the Last Crusade. I did have the
laminated cards once. Spent quite a bit on different sets. Damned if I can find them from all the moving I have done since purchasing them. Yet I
still have that set of Radio Shack Electrical Engineering booklets despite their irregular size.
It is a personal quirk I am sure, but I found that if I take the time to write new things in painstaking detail and speaking the steps as I write and
review it tends to be commited to memory a lot better when being able to practice is not an option like building a full scale cabin with mud motar in
Now, when the time comes I hope I don't accidently grab the book beside it instead since they are the same size. While reading Confucius and Lao
Tzu's Tao Te Ching is spiritually rewarding I doubt it helps me recall the correct recognition and location of raw material and ratios for making
gunpowder for larger animal "traps". Or best wood for procuring lye for soap making, again ratios come into play here too as too much lye burns
especially in more tender areas.
We all like this solar still
for getting clean water fast.
But this one
produces about 3 gal/day and should be easy to build for long term situations. Which I should
state is what I see coming for us in the next few years, long term survival.
