Here are some tips and DIY survival stuff

MY HOME MADE TENT

I recently made a tent for my bug out bag. I used a piece   of of black builders plastic, pvc pipe and duck tape. It is nice and lite and will keep the rain and wind off you. I would like to use a thicker plastic than what I am currently using but this will work for the mean time.

THE METHOD IMG_3147

Cut a piece of plastic to the right size for you then fold it in half and make a crease with your fingers. Make a hole on either side of the shelter for the pvc to go through. Strengthen it with duck tape.

Then rap duck tape around the pvc pipe so the plastic catches on the duck tape.

Then take a piece of rope and half it tie the middle around the pvc pipe and peg out and you have a tent.

hope you this help’s you

Good fire lighters

You can make some really make some awesome fire lighters using newspaper and wax.

You will need

1 x pot  (old)

News paper

water

2 x  forks

candles

The method is to boil the news paper in the pot for about 5 min. You then pull the news paper apart with the 2 forks. You then compress the news paper to get as much of the water off as possible (Tabasco sauce bottle and tea candle container with some holes in the bottom and push the bottle into the tea candle holder) . You then let them dry out completely then you melt some candles in the pot let the wax boil for a minute you then drop the dried news paper in to the wax. Make sure that the news paper is completely covered then take it out and let dry.

How to use

Break a bit of and light or break and fluff up with a knife and light with flint.

These are great because you can put them strait in your bag and they are not messy

BE SAFE AND HAVE FUN

I got the idea from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zoCtXaBoFIY&list=PL06957622B26F190B
