Survival stuff on Youtube

If you guys like survival stuff, there's a show I like on Youtube, called "Corporals Corner"

the guy does a good job explaining survival basics and showing how to properly use gear and how to improvise shelters and the like.

And he does it by actually doing it. He will set up a camp and stay in it. He shows knots, site selections, etc. He has even shown how to do things in a stealthy way, if you don't want you camp to be seen.

(I'm not connected or affiliated with the show in any way)

He's reaffirmed stuff I knew, and corrected a few misconceptions on some other stuff.

worth checking out.

Actually Corporals Corner reminds me of my days as a young infanteer, he covers a lot of what I picked up in the service. My personal Youtube favorite is "Canadian Prepper", he has 200+ videos to choose from. Very interesting.

Look under Audio Books for "One Second After" by William R. Forstchen, the 16 chapters are fascinating and well worth listening to.

his ideas come from Dave Canterbury and the lean to with the casualty blanket is pure bs. Try it sometime with even a bit of rain and wind. You'll get soaked.

if you want solid stuff, you look up Lonnie on FarNorthBushCraftandSurvival, Lars on SurvivalRussia, and Dave on REALLYBIGMONKEY1

Top is ok on most stuff, and so is Dave C, but the heavy duty space blanket, at 5x7 ft in size, is much too small to adequately shelter you in a lean-to configuration.

The casualty blanket is also too small if you make an A frame out of it, and it's certainly too small to make a bag out of, if you're a big guy and intend to wear winter clothing inside of it. The 2 person SOL Emergency bivvy is about right for one person. Cut and opened flat, it measures 7x9 ft, nearly twice as big as the casualty blanket S omething about the roughened surface of the casualty blanket seems to cause more condensation than the "shiny' regular mylar and it also doesn't reflect heat as well as the shiny stuff does. The shiny stuff is also about half as heavy/bulky. You can actually feel the warmth of reflected heat with your hand, testing the shiny stuff, if you dont actually touch the material but just hold your palm close to it. The plastic backing of the Emergency Bivvy is a HELLUVA lot tougher than the coughlin throwaway type shirt pocket space blanket, (which tear if you just look at them cross-eyed). But it's not as rugged as the casualty blanket.

To add to the list, there's Coalcracker Bushcraft, Cimbrer Bushcraft and, for the more tactical/evader type, Ivarr Bergmann- Evasion Survival Alaska

the "Ivarr Bergmann- Evasion Survival Alaska" looks interesting, have to watch it when I have a bit of spare time to fit it in.

It's neat, he likes old surplus, from WWII German stuff to PLCE, to 'Nam-era web gear, plus he cobbles a lot of his stuff up himself.

Back when I did a lot of puttering around in the Ozark National Forest "Coyote Hunting" and was on a budget I had some hybrid or mutant combos of LBE or LBV stuff. Like a Vietnam era nylon H harnes hooked to WW2 era BAR belt. Two nylon gear pouches from my Lowe/Alpine pack on the back of H harness below my bed roll and a couple of GI canteens below.
If I were medium to short in height I don't think it'd work

I like running DPM PLCE pouches on an ALICE belt, US pistol holster, M1951 canvas h-harness, SAS DPM smock, Blurred-edge zeltbahn. Mix of old field gear (canteens, shovels, etc) and new.

I look like a cast member in some post-apocalyptic film

I wish I still had the BAR belt and old H harness. That belt I got cheap and maybe gave away like the Garand/03 belt I carried shotgun shells in.

Still have mine that I used when I used to shoot 3 gun matches and WW2 re-enactor matches with the Garand. Yes, I do have a period correct 1911. The Garand belt is very flexible, it can be used with any ammunition that fits on 5 rd charger clips, example, German, K98K, Swedish Mauser, 1903, etc.
