Survival Techniques Everyone Should Learn!!! Knowledge Is The Key To Survival
There are plenty of people that assume they could survive if they had no choice, but most have no clue how to even start a fire without matches and some gas...

Here's some survival techniques that everyone should learn BEFORE they're needed. Might not be long before going to the store is no longer an option...

For this one, you can also use salt water in place of foliage should there be none around. Pour the salt water in the hole, not the cup.





Spare the comments about this guys stutter, he's no fucking idiot. And yes, you can run motors on wood gas.





This one is possibly my favorite... I've won a few bets with this trick.


Here's a super simple snare trap, look up spring snares on youtube for other variations


I was going to post a shelter video but there are too many that apply to different situations, ie; winter, coastal, forrested, long/short term.
A good tip for having some heat in your shelter is to keep some rocks by the fire (careful, rocks can "explode" and send bits flying) and keep some in your shelter around you. You'll need to switch them out for new ones every few hours so make sure you have enough rocks to rotate through.


Anybody that has survival techniques they'd like to share, I'd love to see them. Any questions about the ones shown, I'll be glad to help.

This is true, lol. Hopefully there are other options before resorting to that. I haven't tried it myself but from what I've learned, it still smells and tastes like piss.

 Quoting: DPS


Surviving a nuke attack, the only advice would be to travel opposite direction the wind is blowing for days if not weeks.
Surviving an invasion, find shelter during the days and forage, trap and gather at night.

This requires a bit more work, but if you need to generate electricity, this design works with car alternators and even treadmill motors to create energy. You can store the energy in car batteries and use it for appliances or even for arc welding.

Re: Survival Techniques Everyone Should Learn!!! Knowledge Is The Key To Survival
Some good videos but the ice magnifying glass is just dumb... If its cold enough to have ice laying that thick the last thing you want to be doing is rubbing your hands all over a piece of ice.

Also if you do all that with the ice by the time you finish it the sun might be covered by cloud... Which means you have wasted energy, you have no fire and extremely cold hands!

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22944982


Towards the beginning of spring, or even in winter for that matter, there are lots of areas that you can procure ice from that would be functional. It doesn't have to be that big either, just as long as you create a concave shape (or is it convex...) and simulate a magnifying glass, it'll work.
If your hands are too weak to create fire for survival, then you can try using the force young jedi.... or a cloth.

You can do it in less then half an hour.

Re: Survival Techniques Everyone Should Learn!!! Knowledge Is The Key To Survival
Live in the desert? If so, solar still probably worth knowing. Same with other primitive "survival" skills/techniques.

Yet, if you got any brains or resources you need to spend the time you have to work with not watching videos or practicing, but taking action. Snaring squirrels isn't going to actually feed you, unless you can get a couple dozen a day. How'd you get into the back wood-lot anyway? If you live there, you can be scrounging real food with your time, buying cheap roast beef and making jerky or putting together a makeshift generator/battery/inverter system to keep your freezer going. Rig a cistern that catches rain water off a metal roof, dig a shallow well, divert gray water so you use it for garden watering before you dispose of it...

Make fire-kit. A welding sparker costs maybe $5 and with extra flints will Always give you a spark and lasts forever. Disposable lighters still have good flints and will likely spark; see them discarded, take one apart and harvest the spring and flint for other uses...

Learn to rig tarps for shelter. Even cheap poly tarps will shed rain and stop wind. Staying Warm, Dry, Hydrated, Fed, and able to mount a Self-Defense are your key goals. Got a vehicle? Tarps can be rigged all around, staked out with ropes and keep your immediate area dry and sheltered.

Primitive skills are time consuming and difficult. A couple buckets, some sand, toweling, window screen, an old sheet and you can clean or filter water. A large pot to boil that water makes it suitable for drinking or open skin cleansing. 8 drops of plain hypochlorite bleach will kill pathogens & bacteria if no way to boil. A gal of bleach costs $2.

Cast iron cookware is extremely durable and usable in or on campfire coals. A grille plate from an old BBQ pit enables you to cook over a campfire, just support the grille w/rocks or clay. Got a wood-burning heater, can likely cook on the surface or rig a way to hold pots over a fire if you have an open hearth fireplace. Remove any gas burner bs from your fireplace and get a supply of firewood and you're in business...

If you got time to waste on primitive skillset building, you likely have time to take some real and meaningful steps toward using way better modes of providing for your needs.

A canvas wall tent or surplus GI tent with a tent-liner can be setup on a built flooring platform and be as viable and warm as a house. If you live in Cold Climate and lose heat sources, erecting a dome tent in your living room and using sleeping bags will conserve body heat. Dome tents don't need any staking or hold downs if not exposed to wind.

A 20x100 tube of 6mil plastic sheeting is extremely versatile. With a staple gun, you can cover broken windows, erect a quick shelter, keep rain and snow off valuable gear/supplies and make a barrier wall you can fill with grass, leaves and other dry matter to insulate. Tyvek and other house-wrap products very fine to have access to also.

All sorts of modes of living you can embrace when shtf. I advise getting all the tools you can now so primitive skills are just something to study for backup or curiosity.

Good Luck & God Bless!

Lol, clearly these methods are beneath your expertise in survival situations. If you care to notice though, each video focuses on the SIMPLE means by which to achieve the desired results. As the title reads, knowledge is the key to survival.

Most of your points are valid... unless staying at home where you've prepped is no longer an option. A GI tent in the living room? ... why not.

You're assuming all these materials are going to be available after whatever calamity may occur... If they are, then by all means, we're all going to come over to your place since it sounds so fucking awesome!!!

This is basic survival that can be done ANYWHERE, without the need for many, if any supplies. Nobody claimed it was like living at the Ritz, just functional.

Edit: Just wanted to add, these techniques can be useful for those that may be en route to a more stabilized area. Once one is found, you can then begin to settle in and develop more efficient means to survive.
