5 C's VR to EDC_Fotor

I was tagged by Ethan at EDC Adventures to do a VR showing my 5 “C’s” I would want in a survival situation. Well, here is my list. I try to include items that are easy to get, affordable, and efficient. Would love to hear what everyone thinks!

To keep the chain going I am supposed to tag three others, and I am tagging:

Lastly I end the video with a challenge to all my viewers and subscribers! It’s not your normal YouTube challenge to check it out!

Bushcraft Challenge: Starting a Fire with a Magnifying Lens

While it is fun to make fire with ferro rods, or friction, or even flint and steel…is the power of the sun underutilized? Should there be magnifying glass in all of our fire kits?

In this video I set out to explore what common materials used in fire lighting could work with a magnifying glass to create a fire. I test a total of 10 things to see if they work! Will they??

Lastly I pose a challenge to my fellow YouTubers, can you make a fire with a magnifying glass? You can use any tinder you wish, just film it, make a VR, and link it in the comment section! I said in the video that I will not give away anything, but I changed my mind. I’ll draw randomly from the responses and send the winner a pack of pocket frensel lenses! You have to read this far to know there is a giveaway 🙂 Good luck, and I hope everyone enjoys this challenge!

Lighting a Fire in Wet Conditions, and a Failed Bushcraft Breakfast!

Hey everyone, I hope you enjoy today’s video! I set out for an old fashioned bushcraft breakfast, but it did not go as planned. I made the most of it and concentrated on lighting a fire in wet conditions. It has rained a TREMENDOUS amount in the last 10 days, and everything was soaking wet. This is a real look at how hard it can be to get a fire not only lit, but actually sustainable in this kind of we conditions.

I also show you my new Mojo Pot Stand for my Trangia Spirit Burner. I use it to make a much needed cup of coffee, and anyone with a Trangia should definitely look into the ultralight piece of kit.

Thank everyone for watching, and thanks for all the continued growth and support. As always, subscribe and like!

A Day at Epcot: Disney RV Trip 2015

Join us as we spend the day at Disney’s Epcot theme park! We really had a blast this day, and I think you will too!

We rode as many rides as we could, and I brought the camera along for the fun! On this day we rode our FAVORITE ride in all of Disney, “Test Track”! We loved it, and I hope you all enjoy it. We also rode other rides, and watched the Illuminations fireworks and laser show that night. Thanks for watching, and enjoy the magic!
