Sweet! Thanks for the videos. Although I am curious about the advice of not going into the water if there are venomous snakes in your state. There are venomous snakes indigenous to 49 out of 50 states in the US. The lone exception is Hawaii. Venomous snakes are everywhere. Generally if you don't fuss with them they'll leave you alone. They don't eat hooman.
Oh ,I don't know if this will help you,
Anyone Know how to Noodle?
Pad See Ew is a Thai noodle dish that is made with broad, flat rice noodles, also known as "river noodles". Pad See Ew can be made with chicken, pork, or beef, but otherwise has the same basic ingredients. This noodle dish is truly Asian comfort food at its best; at the same time, Thai river noodles make a healthy and energy-giving lunch or dinner. This Pad See Ew recipe features marinated strips of beef and still-crisp broccoli for a nutritionally complete and oh-so-satisfying meal. ENJOY!
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 32 minutes
Yield: SERVES 3-4
2 lbs. fresh broad flat rice noodles (908 g.), available in the deli section or refrigerator of Asian food stores
1-2 heads broccoli, chopped into florets
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 sirloin beef steak, sliced thinly into strips (OR equivalent)
2 Tbsp. oil, plus 1/4 cup sherry (OR chicken/beef broth) for stir-frying
1 Tbsp. oyster sauce
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 heaping tsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. dark soy sauce
2 Tbsp. regular soy sauce
3 Tbsp. fish sauce
2 tsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. white pepper
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
handful of fresh coriander
Stir together the simple marinade: oyster sauce, soy sauce, and brown sugar. Pour over the strips of beef and mix well. Set aside to marinate while you prepare the other ingredients.
If your fresh rice noodles came pressed together, take a few minutes to separate them (some may break or remain stuck together - this is normal). Note that if your rice noodles come direct from your refrigerator, it may help to very briefly microwave them before separating (see packet instructions).
Stir all the stir-fry sauce ingredients together in a cup and set near the stove.
Place a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 Tbsp. oil and swirl around.
Add the garlic and briefly stir-fry until fragrant (30 seconds).
Add the beef (along with marinade) and stir-fry 2 minutes. Add a little sherry or broth whenever your wok/pan becomes dry - enough to keep ingredients stir-frying nicely.
Add the broccoli and continue stir-frying in the same way for 1 more minute.
Push ingredients aside and break the egg into the center of the wok or pan. Quickly stir-fry to cook the egg (like making scrambled eggs).
Add the noodles and pour the stir-fry sauce over. Using two utensils, gently lift and turn the noodles to mix with the other ingredients and the sauce (these noodles break easily). Noodles will gradually soften (about 2 minutes).
When noodles are soft, remove from heat. Taste-test for salt, adding more fish sauce until desired taste is achieved. Serve with Thai chili sauce on the side.
Yeah, I guess you got a point there about injuries in the wild. Although that's how the Native Americans used to do it.
I guess they were pretty savvy with natural remedies for things. A lot better than I am, for sure.

I was gonna post this question in general chit chat, but figured it would be a good topic for discussion in the survival forum.
For those who don't know, noodling is a very old catfishing technique where a person seeks out a catfish hole and uses his/her arm as bait for monster cats. It is a very dangerous endeavour, peopke die every uear noodling for fish.
So my question is, do we have any resident noodlers? I am gonna learn this summer and I am looking for tips. My plan so far...I will not dive to noodle. I intend to stay in 4' of water. I am undecided on whether or not to use gloves, and I am considering wearing a long sleeved button down shirt to slip off in case things go south on me.
I also do not plan on using two hands. I want one free to pull my diving knife if need be.
The reason I posted in Survival should be obvious. This fishing technique, once learned, will last a life time and can be used without any tackle.
I think anyone attemptng should also be sure to have at least two friends with them for safety reasons.
Any advice would be appreciated.edit on 16-6-2013 by JayinAR because: (no reason given)
