  Water From Trees
Posted by: Alberto Hernandez - 04-09-2004, 01:01 AM - Forum: Questions and Answers - Replies (12)

I have read that you can tap in to maple trees, sycamore and hickory trees to get watery sap that you can make into syrup.

The book also says that you can used the watery sap for drinking and for cooking in areas where the water supply may be contaminated.

My question is can this be done at any time of the year? I am only interested in drinking water in case of a emergency!

Best wishes to all!

what knots do you guys seem to use the most?



time after time I find myself using the taut line hitch this is an awesome knot/hitch to know. it is used for adjusting the tension on guy lines or in my case my hammock.



the knot I use least the bowline. a simple overhand knot or figure 8 works for me.

  Anyone Use Those Waterproof Notebooks?
Posted by: T-young - 04-07-2004, 05:33 PM - Forum: Questions and Answers - Replies (8)

The paper feels kind of weird and waxy, I just wondered if a regular pencil could write on it. I've always wanted to get one for my field notebook.

  New Skin
Posted by: Bladesmith - 04-07-2004, 05:09 PM - Forum: Questions and Answers - Replies (10)

I seem to cut, scrape, gouge, rip, tear, my skin in the shop all the time!

I noticed a small bottle in the first aid shelf called "new skin" its a liquid that you paint on your cut like fingernail polish. So what the heck I bought it and put it in the shop and have been using it ever since! it really works great for me, I seem to get cuts where a bandaid won't stick on. I was worried that it would wash off when I cleaned up but it stayed for days. It kinda stings when you paint it on but I like using it now. I thought I'd pass it on.

  The Laptop Friendly Disaster Survival Library
Posted by: N8QGE - 04-06-2004, 11:57 AM - Forum: Preparedness FAQ - Replies (1)

Here's the link for the laptop friendly Disaster Survival Library. I've set it up this way so I can get a good count on the number of hits it takes. This is a 900 page 3 MB file (zipped to 960 KB for download) composed of manuals and information from various sources. It is in rich text format (RTF) so it can be opened in any word processor, including WordPad.

  Seal Skinz?
Posted by: FEATHERSTONE - 04-06-2004, 06:47 AM - Forum: Questions and Answers - Replies (7)

Do any of you use these?

I was thinking of getting a pair for use with my jungle boots.My question is would I need to order a new pair of boots due to these might being to thick with socks?



The boots I have now(Altama) fit just right with regualr socks with plenty of room for the toes,would I need to get a wide width instead of the regular that I have now?

Thanks for any info you can give.

  Brains
Posted by: George - 04-06-2004, 04:26 AM - Forum: Hoodlum Workshop-Photos Please - Replies (18)

I got lucky today and the market didn't throw out the beef brains but had saved them for me since they knew I wouldn't eat them.

I bought 30 pounds of brains for $15 don't know what I am going to do when these run out.



Fleshed the buffalo mask skin today and I am going to wash it tomorrow and stretch it on the skull to dry
