Well used Chaga - Inonotus obliquus


Well used Chaga - Inonotus obliquus - This chaga was harvested in Aroostook county Maine last spring, then soaked in high velocity moonshine from North Carolina to yield 5 liters of tincture, Next it was steeped in hot water (temp below 150F) for 3 days to extract medicinal tea. 

Then over a period of several days I brewed it in my coffee pot with my morning cup O' Joe. Once it is dry, I will process it into tinder and add it to my Flint and Steel set.

I will make a medical concoction from the Alcohol tincture and the steeped tea. Each process extracts a different medical quality from the chaga.

See you on the trail!

Tomahawk scout school in Cambodia


                                                       "fixer" Vanessa with an AK-47

Recently in Cambodia, the Tomahawk scout school completed a joint training exercise with the Cambodian army. The Tomahawk scouts involved were instructed in the firing of the B-40 rocket, the AK-47, the PKM general purpose machine gun and several other weapons. In return the Cambodian commandos were given Jungle survival training.

The Scout school may be organizing another adventure training session in Cambodia again soon. Contact me directly for details. tomahawkscoutschool@gmail.com

Yuichiro Miura - the man who skied down Mt. Everest

"When you crawl into your sleeping bag, each cell of your body begins to sing very softly and to expand in joy and warmth. Looking at the starlight coming through the crack of the tent, listening to the trickling sound of a creek then falling asleep"

Yuichiro Miura - the man who skied down Mt. Everest

"Sledge-O-Matic"

I needed a mallet for a woods project Im working on, but it turned into a "Gallagher " AKA "Sledge-O-Matic" war hammer. Made from a broken shovel handle and a hunk of seasoned persimmon wood. Weighs about 4 pounds. It's a zombie skull crushing SOB.

See you on the trail!

A little down home "Hillbilly" fun

I recently went to visit my sister in southern Indiana. I was surprised at how rural it actually is. My brother in law has a gun range set up so Him, my Nephew, and me burned up a few magazines of ammo and sighted in 3 rifles and 3 pistols. It was good old down home "Hillbilly" fun.

See you on the trail!
