5 Minute Hammock Tarp (video)

Dave Canterbury shows us how to turn an 8×8 oilcloth tarp into a hammock in about five minutes. You’re going to need a few more items besides just the tarp, specifically two metal rings (not sure where he gets them but perhaps large carabiners would work instead) and two [easyazon_link identifier=”B001QL2C26″ locale=”US” tag=”rethinksurviv-20″]lengths of 1″ webbing[/easyazon_link] (he carries […]

Best Firesteel? (video)

This guy has way too many firesteels (and fire-starters)… I’m jealous. 🙂 Personally, I’ve never had a complaint about the [easyazon_link identifier=”B00440VIYY” locale=”US” tag=”rethinksurviv-20″]Sweedish Firesteel[/easyazon_link] but it is no doubt the only option as the following video points out…

Crusader Cook Kit (video)

Looks to be a nice little cook kit made in the U.K. but can be found on Amazon. The one on Amazon includes the cooker, canteen, and lid but doesn’t seem to have everything shown in the video (the fire starting supplies and whatnot) so don’t expect all that’s shown in the video to be […]

Sunjack CampLight USB Light (video)

I’ve reviewed the Sunjack Camplight previously but figured it would be a good reminder that camping season is coming up (yeah!) and that this particular setup has something new: an on/off switch so you don’t have to unplug the light and the ability to daisy-chain multiple lights together which I think is a good idea […]

Frozen Water Bottle Camping Trick (video)

I’m not a winter hiking kind of guy so I don’t have this problem. That said, it never hurts to have a bit of knowledge stashed away. 🙂 As such, the following video offers an interesting quick tip to drink water from a water bottle if it’s likely to freeze or is already partially frozen…

USA-Made Dream Hammock System + Bug Net (video)

Dave Canterbury shows us a USA-made complete hammock system made by Dream Hammock. I’m not quite sure which model of hammock this one is but there are several to choose from, though, I’m guessing it’s the ThunderBird at about $145. Overall, he’s pleased and particularly likes the strap system (it’s easy to hang), the fact […]

TIP: Keeping Feet Warm in Your Sleeping Bag (video)

I thought most folks knew to do this but maybe not. FYI, you could also warm a water bottle and stuff it in the bottom of the sleeping bag to help keep your feet warm…

Earbuds Case Fire Kit (video)

This video just goes to show you really CAN put a fire kit in anything, even an old earbuds case. 🙂 Personally, I would prefer an Altoids tin for the size and because it’s likely more waterproof than an earbuds case, but I like the effort. That said, you might be able to fix those old […]

28 Brilliant Winter Camping Tips (video)

I really like this guy. He’s soft spoken but brings plenty of useful wilderness advice in each and every video. This time he gives dozens of tips and tricks about camping in the cold, mostly regarding staying warm inside his tent. Though a lengthy video it’s a good one to take the time to watch through if you […]

$16.99 Wood Gasifier Knockoff Camping Stove (video)

I’ve found that you generally get what you pay for and though this knockoff wood gasifier stove is no SilverFire Scout that he keeps referring to (retails for over $70 on their website) and it’s certainly not a Solo Stove which I recently raved about, but for less than $20 it’s not a bad backup […]
