Knowledge Weighs Nothing - Life Hacks, Bushcraft etc

Its camping season, so I figured its time for a repository for all of the cool tips and tricks to be found out there that can make your experience easier and more enjoyable... don't wanna pack a tent so you can really rough it? theres a lot of different shelter designs out there, need to start a fire but forgot the lighter? there are tricks out there for that as well.

It can also branch out into cool knowledge that's useful around the home and in life in general, which is why I threw "life hacks" in there... this thread is for outdoorsmen and everyman.

Tell us your trick for saving money around the house, building a fire, catching food, making a field expedient water filter etc.

Hereís something everyone should have in their camping gear, or at least something like it.



After youíve been stomping around in the woods wash your arms, legs, hands and feet down with this stuff. I donít know about you guys but poison ivy/oak is thick around here. Iíve gotten much better at recognizing it but Iíll still come down with it at least once a year.

If itís too late and youíve got blistering rash move on to this stuff.

It works if it's short enough. 2 or 3 feet is probably alright. 8 feet is too long.

If you're on the couch and are having trouble breathing, don't bother with a hose. You're probably choking on a potato chip. Simply pat your belly until your dog jumps on you, sorta like the Heimlich menouver.

Pro tip: Chewing often prevents this.

The witch story was hilarious, and I totally agree with the above... I can almost literally feel my blood pressure go down when I'm out in the woods away from all of the BS.

I never fail to feel refreshed afterwards.

or you can keister them to prevent having to poop in the woods.

I learned something on CP, Permethrin is the ****ing bomb for ticks. Soak pants and jacket with it. No ticks.

I may add that if you get a lone star tick, very popular in MO, that the best way I have found to remove them is to flip them on their back and pull out backwards. For whatever reason they are more likely to break or just never come out if you pull them straight out or straight back. But flipping them works like a charm.

Interesting. I had always called what we have around here deer ticks but your comment about lone star ticks got me wondering if thatís what they are. According to this chart:

http://www.tickinfo.com/TICKIDPAGE.htm

What we have mostly are American dog ticks.

The best method Iíve found for removal is similar to what you and the video are talking about, pair of tweezers as close to where the ticks connected to the skin as possible, but instead of a slow steady pull backwards I pull until the skin starts to bulge out and hold it. Pretty soon the tick will let go on its own.
When you grab a tick the first thing it does is tighten its grip, thatís why if you yank on it itíll leave parts behind.
Itís kind of like if your holding onto a bar, if youíre just lying there you can hold onto it forever but if someone comes along and starts pulling on your legs youíre only going to be able to hold on for so long. So if you get a good grip on the tick and pull until thereís pressure on it to hold on itíll eventually fatigue and let go. At least thatís my theory and Iíve had lots of success with it.
