Fire lighting with natural tinders, fishing and hunting, slingshot hunting, ice fishing, mushroom identification and plant identification, catching and cooking wild game, foraging and cooking wild plants and mushrooms, wilderness cooking, weaving and basket making.
My Wife Megan and I also travel throughout northern europe overlanding in our modified 4×4 exploring wilderness tracks and roads. We left the UK almost one year ago to travel and relocate to the North of Sweden where we now live in a remote town surrounded by wilderness. Outside of our working lives we spend out time exploring the wilderness, ice fishing and regular fishing in the summer over lakes and rivers, we regularly hunt with rifles and shotguns for various bird species and we enjoy hiking and camping with our bushcraft kit but also further afield with our modified 4×4 and roof top tent.
Thanks for reading and checking out the channel and feel free to have a look at the playlists and videos below.

‘Organic food is the product of a farming system which avoids the use of man-made fertilizers, pesticides; growth regulators, and livestock feed additives. “
What we know about organics is that they are safer, possibly more nutritious, and often better tasting than non-organic food. They also say organic production is better for the environment and kinder to animals. But not everything is flowers, and unfortunately, the organic food price can be very salty if you know what I mean. What many people are doing to be able to make organic food part of their lives is planting their organic garden themselves.

A tasteless and odorless liquid at room temperature, it has the important ability to dissolve many other substances, the versatility of water as a solvent is essential to live organisms.
Life is believed to have originated in the aqueous solutions of the world’s oceans, and living organisms depend on aqueous solutions, such as blood and digestive juices, for biological processes.
It is one of the most plentiful and essential of compounds, it is vital for all known forms of life, even though it provides no calories or organic nutrients, we are 80% made of water.
Unfortunately, in our modern society, not every water that comes to us is clean, even though it appears clean, tap water for instance has various contaminants that can harm your health, such as chlorine, microorganisms, flour, lead, etc. If you want to know more you can have a look at your contaminants page right here.
So, answering your question: The best way to filter tap or any other water is to buy the most useful tool against these chemicals and contaminants, which is a Water Filter.
We know that sometimes we cannot afford to buy such equipment, because we are having economical problems, or even we are in places that don’t have it for sale, or maybe you are going on vacation or camping and need fresh and clean water, these are common situations.
You must be asking yourself what are the problems of ingesting unpure water in those cases we mentioned before, I mean, It’s just a few times, right?
And this is the crucial point where you do not want to think like that!! Drinking impure water is the first cause of death for people that are lost in the woods or camping, etc.
You can get very sick and spoil your trip or even worse! Thinking about people that can’t afford the water filter we are going to share How To Make Your WaterFilter- DIY
What is the simplest way to purify water?
The simplest and most reliable method to purify water is to boil it for a good amount of time.
High temperatures cause the bacteria and virus to dissipate, removing all impurities from the water.
In doing so, chemical additions cease to exist in the water as well.
However, boiling uses fuel and could take a while. Furthermore, you will need to filter the water to remove all solid particles especially if the water was taken from a doubtful water source.
Use of Iodine solution, tablets or crystals
This is an effective and more convenient method, It can kill viruses and bacteria.
Once you drop the tablet into the water container
Shake the container and hold the bottle upside down
Have the lid slightly unscrewed to let the iodine to flow into the threads of the bottle cap.But It takes about thirty minutes before you can drink the treated water, it has an unusual aftertaste. Be careful: It is also not suitable for pregnant women.
A quick trick to make it look better is to pour the water through a coffee filter or clean cloth.
This won’t make it safe to drink, but it can improve the clarity of the water, which will help the following disinfection methods work better.
And remember, if you are very sensitive to chemicals, you can always just boil your water for 10 minutes instead of chemically treating it.
Our next trick is to carefully use ordinary household bleach to disinfect water.
As a rule, colder water needs a little more bleach than warm water, and muddier water needs more bleach than clear water. Let the water stand for several minutes if it is muddy, and just pour the clearer water off the top. This will make disinfection much more effective.
Add 2 to 4 drops of ordinary chlorine bleach per quart of water.
Use 2 drops if the water is warm and clear.
Go to 4 drops if it is very cold or murky – or both.
Put the bottle lid back on, and shake the container for a minute.
Then turn the bottle upside down, and unscrew the cap a turn, or two.
Let a small amount of water flow out to clean the bottle threads and cap.
Screw the lid back on tight, and wipe the exterior of the bottle to get the chlorine on all surfaces.
Use a clear PET bottle (the one typically used for sodas and soft drinks) as some glasses block out too much of the UV-A rays – If the water is too cloudy then filter it first using a clean cloth before pouring it into the bottle.
Lay the bottle face down under the sun, If it’s a clear sky or not too cloudy – then just 6 hours of sunlight is enough. If not, 2 days of exposure might be required.
Boiling water can kill almost all bacteria and viruses, to speed up the process you can cover the pot and let it boil.
Chlorine kills the bacteria in the water but can be harmful if added in excess. The package will usually tell you how many drops for how many liters and for how long you need to wait. It typically takes about 30 minutes to treat the water.
Here is how to make a cheap Water Filter in 12 Steps:
Plastic bottle or comparable food-safe container
Another container for clean water
Clean cotton or cheesecloth
Coffee filter or porous cloth
Sand (fine and coarse)
Gravel or pebbles
Step 1 – Cut Bottom Off
Use scissors or a knife to cut off the bottom part of the bottle you will be putting the filter material in.
Step 2 – Cut Drain Hole
Use scissors or a knife to poke a small hole in the cap. If there is no cap, cut off the top of the bottle instead of the bottom for the previous step then poke several small holes in the bottom of the bottle.
Step 3 – 1st Layer: Straining Fabric
Stuff the bottom of the bottle with a fine cloth or paper fabric, such as a coffee filter, cheesecloth or cotton stuffing.
Sand and grass can also be used in this first stage. Fill the bottom with about 3 inches of grass clippings to filter out larger particulates and help give water a clean taste from chlorophyll contained in the grass. Then fill with 3-4 inches of very fine sand.
Be careful not to use poisonous or unidentified weeds when collecting grass clippings. Do not use Highway Department sand, as it can be full of road salt and chemicals.
Step 4 – Break Up Charcoal
Take charcoal from campfire or BBQ charcoal (do not use match/instant light type because it’s soaked in chemicals) and use hammer or rock to break it down into the smallest particles you can.
Step 5 – Layer 2: Pulverized Charcoal
Pour about 3 inches of pulverized charcoal into a bottle. If available, cover with another coffee filter to prevent the charcoal from being displaced too much during filtering.
Step 6 – 3rd Layer: Fine Sand
Add a 2-3 inch layer of the finest sand you can find. This and the subsequent layers you will add are to filter out particulates in the water.
Do not use Highway Department sand, as it can be full of road salt and chemicals.
Step 7 – 4th Layer: Coarse Sand
Add a 2-3 inch layer of coarse sand or very small pebbles.
Step 8 – 5th Layer: Fine Sand
Add 2-3 inch layer of the fine sand. Multiple varying filter stages (like a reverse osmosis system) ensures that most of the particles present in the water are caught.
Step 9 – 6th Layer: Gravel
Add a 2-3 inch layer of gravel or small rocks to prevent the water from being poured in from displacing the sand.
Step 10 – Top Strainer
Cover top of the filter with a piece of porous cloth, such as a bandana or cheesecloth. This step is optional but helpful in straining any large debris from the water and stop the pouring from displacing the sand inside the filter.
Step 11 – Pouring & Collecting
Pour water slowly into the filter while holding it over the second container.
Make sure to wipe off or clean the collection container. Pour water slowly so as not to disturb filter layers too much or to cause filter container to overflow and possibly spilling unfiltered water into the collection container.
Step 12 – Sterilize Water
Even though you have filtered the water through many different layers, microbes can still exist in the water and it still needs to be sterilized. Boiling the water in a pot or kettle is the easiest way.
You can also use sunlight to sterilize water. Pour filtered water into a clean, clear plastic or glass bottle up to 3/4 full and screw-on cap. Shake for thirty seconds to add more oxygen to the water. Place on a light or reflective surface in direct sunlight. The amount of exposure it needs it dependant on weather conditions. A clear day requires 6 hours of exposure whereas 50% or more cloud coverage will require 2 days of sunlight.

The importance of clean water is finally coming to the forefront, and it’s about time. Toxic water is not limited to Southern California dealing with Hexavalent Chromium and Flint, Michigan’s lead crisis. Toxins like microbes, pesticides, plastics, prescription meds, metals, chlorine, fluoride and others are poisoning our water supply. The scary fact is that many of these toxins have been shown to cause cancer, birth defects, cardiovascular effects, reproductive problems and more. Drinking water straight from the tap is no longer an option.
If we cannot trust our government to keep our water clean, it is up to us to choose the best filtration methods. Read more about the water filter that I recommend here: drhyman.com/blog/2016/12/08/my-favorite-water-filter
• Top ½ of a 2-L bottle (or automotive funnel).
• Coffee Filters (or shop towels)
• Cotton Balls
• Pea Gravel
• ¾” Gravel
• About 12-12oz plastic cups (clear)
• 4 or 5 5-gallon buckets (to hold dirty water, filtered water, and materials)
• Dirt (this will need to be mixed with water and kept in a 5-gallon bucket)
1. Mix dirt with about 3-4 gallons of water to make a testing solution.
2. Place coffee filter into 2-L bottle.
3. Place a handful of cotton balls into the 2-L bottle on top of the coffee filter.
4. Place a layer of sand on the cotton balls approximately 1” thick.
5. On the sand, place a 1” thick layer of pea gravel.
6. On the pea gravel, place a 1” to 1-1/2” thick layer of ¾” gravel.
7. Once the filter has been made, use a plastic cup to pull some of the dirty water mix from a 5-gallon bucket.
8. Over another clear plastic cup, pour the dirty water mix into the filter and let the water filter through.
9. The 1st pass will show that the water is slightly cleaner than the original mix.
10. Once all the water has been poured out of the 1st cup and collected in the 2nd cup, filter it again…
11. Put the 2-L bottler over the 1st cup (emptied) and pour the mix from the 2nd cup through the filter.
12. The 2nd pass should become clearer than the 1st pass.
13. Continue this process a few times and each time, the water will become clearer.
A few thoughts:
• Purchasing everything should cost no more than $50, depending on how many filters you want to make.
• 2-L bottles are a better way to go than a funnel because they are clear…funnels are not. If you decide to go with funnels, consider buying the long neck funnels. They are not as wide and also have a smaller opening. You will need a 2-L bottle for each simultaneous demonstration you want to conduct.
• Shop towels function better than a coffee filter because they are bigger and much stronger, but they do cost more. (about $10 for a large box @ Home Depot).
• The rock can be purchased at Home Depot and placed in a bucket…Rock is not very expensive, but it is sold in 50-lb bags. It will last for many demonstrations.
