Some things I learned from the show ...
Blood on knives degrades them quikly as with any salty or acidic substance so keep your blades clean as much as possible ok.
One can clean and maintain a blades usefulness with a mustard coating and left to rest for a few hrs (overnight was the recommendation).
One should NOT wear cotton underpants in a hot wet environment due to crotch-rot.
Mud can be used as sunscreen and to protect from mosquitoes and to protect and help clean ones hair and dirt/sand can also be used to topically clean
Smoke from fires can also be used to clean with and deoderize clothing and or oneself.
Yukka plants [indegenous to some parst of the USA] can provide a soap like substance for many shtf survival uses.
Blowdart guns are ineffective [although I disagree with that] compared with crossbows and crossbows were considered the better choice allround.
Please note that crossbows are illegal anywhere in Australia.
Don't get silhouetted against the skyline and watch for silhouettes for saftey reasons. [hint get low to the ground and use the horizon and the sky
to do this .. and it works also at nightime if ones eyes are already dark adjusted]
Stop, be still and lookaround and listen often so as to become one and in tune with ones environment.
Change your physical point of view to look for pathways through dense scrub and bush! [hint: again get low to look]
These are just a few of the things I learned in this one show.
Personal Disclosure: I hope this inspires many other members and guests to tune into the BushcraftOnFire ATS Radio show thats is on regularly.
