Yeah I don't blame you for not wanting to go into that again. I just wish I had let you know that before you got up there as I could have stored all those for you and brought them across later.

Yeah you have a guy who stays in hotels during his shows and goes and writes a book on survival. It should be titled  "How to survive at the Holiday Inn"

Thanks for the link, Woodsman.


Hey swede...I got a 1939 edition of the boy scout manual that I got from my grandfather on my mom's side.  I rebound it with a cover and it sits in my library.  I oughta scan some of the more interesting stuff and put up a few.

One of the best books Ive seen is the old boy scout manual. There is a lot of stuff I learned I still use today.

I have quite a few old Boy Scout manuals. I have some that have been signed by Green Bar Bill also.

I thought it was Bear Grylls who didn't know anything about survival...and then he stayed at a Holiday Inn Express?

Since I'm a self pronounced "back to the basics" kind a guy, this was my first survival book. I figured it was probably the most essential since survival is mostly about trying to get things "in" and no one has addressed how to properly get them "out". Fun and intersting read!

Surprisingly so, the author is a "her"! I say "surprisingly" because it's usually "shop talk" at the man cave.

Well the 2 newest books for my library are Cedar by Hilary Stewart and Indian Fishing by the same author.
Both books go into the history of the Northwest coast and the native americans who have lived there for centuries. Both books are informative on the crafts they used to make things out of cedar. Good books for the info that can be applied to mondern day bushcraft. If one wants to learn how to use cedar to make things or the info could be used to fashionthings out of other woods also.

For desert environment, or any for that matter as it can be applied, I highly recommend 98.6F *The art of keeping your Azz alive* by, Cody Lundin.  The book touches on a lot of area, but is primarily concerned with regulating the bodies core temperature to avoid hypo/hyperthermia.

The old Boy Scouts manuals are excellent and packable.
