    I have seen hundreds of survival, hiking and bushcraft video. Your lessons are the best ever because you have a unique way of explaining which made each task easy and clear.

    A guy with a good hat. Excellent, so many have no brims and they suffer when it rains.

    Make sure your cotton balls are real cotton, synthetic will not start. At least I've never had any luck!

    I like the backpack and it's contents and I have a large S.O.C. backpack which I keep packed with most of what I would need when camping out or in an emergency situation. As for my first aid kit I have a larger one and there is even two kits in my backpack, and one in my EDC bag. I live in Arkansas so we can carry larger knives and I keep a folding knife in my pack, and wear a full size knife on my utility belt. As for water, I have two canteens with me. One is a military issue canteen, and the other is one with a filter in it to purify water, or to carry extra water. I also keep a water filter in my backpack with the hose, and bag to purify water with, along with tablets to purify water.

    Did anyone notice that he said you can’t boil water in a plastic water bottle?That is absolutely false-I have done it many times,and it was taught to us in SERE school while I was on active duty.

    Damn that's a lot of stuff to carry on a day hike, lol.. Carry light, carry a few emergency items in your med kit and call it a day. Seems like this pack is set up for a luxury camping trip, lol.

    I always carry a 5ft long and 1 ft wide piece of orange-fluorescent fleece in my pack, in each corner is a safety pin attached. It can be used a s scarf/and hat, for sitting on it, and .. most importantly…as a signal flag in case I get lost or injured. Made also a coat for my dog from the same material. Boy, that color shines when the light hits it. We use these items also in winter for our late-evening walks. Btw, the good polar fleece does repel rain to a certain point, and if it is soaked, you stay warm for quite a while. Ask my dog… LOL

    When on a day hike I need the ability to night over son my gear is a sleeping bag and little tent hand warmers 'up with lid. Candle lantern kevlar 250 lb thread and a yucca hiking pole laracord wrapped first aid kit witth tape and scissors and triple antibiotic and roll bandages. And razor blade. I carry chaga for tinder and tea also cotton and vasaline and a jeep lighter and a michmetal rod and a weatherman and 2 huge baloons and muslin sacks for air or water. You know the Romans could march soldiers under water with a goat skin air bag. And I carry 2 huge hundred gallon trash bags..yeah they make them that big for poncho etc also ducktape smart phone ziplock bags esbit cubes some peices of sapwood and baggie to gather sap. And I take ancient greek honey
    cakes pound oc flour pound of honey pound of eggs pound of olive oil or butter or cheese and some raisins. Bake at 350 and soak in strong wine in a muslin rag in a tin…will keep for years. And I have a liter stainless water jug. And I have towell tabs and survival tabs and candy and jerkey or sausage and pancake flour and oil Im good for 2 weeks of food if I catch nothing I carry fishooks sinkers and lures and shrimp scent and rat traps double bottled skunk oil straws. I can process yucca seeds and root cactus fruit.sand pads acorns. (they keep a year) grass seedmakes good cereal! And you can make pottage of fir and pine needles seeds and inner bark. Cattails are edible and my pack of cards is a pack of edible and poisonous plant picture cards with idm on back. I carry money and bowstring and a good buckknife and a mora chisel knife I carry an awl a shovel handsaw and my estwing hatchet whose handle never breaks and it is light and sharp yeah. And I put this stuff on a magnesium kelty backpack with a good waist band. D[n't think you can backpack with a shoulder bag..it screws up the discs of your spine. ..put the weight on your hips and take extra socks and drg clothes and tennies or sandals if you are in the damp forest. I try to be ready for a month or two if I need to or if I go into the inner wilderness where one needs to go with a partner or have a well trained dog which by the way can be fitted to carry its own food and can keep you warm at night and is wonderful protection. I try to limit myself to a 50 lb pack not counting extra food and water for the inner wikderness and a 15 to 20 lb for a day hike always remembering the day or 2 or 3 can turn into a two week survival marathon or a six month terror if you are really lost and injured. For deep wilderness be at least 30 lbs overweight and in superprime condition ;carry a 22 rifle single shot you can use a scope but don't need one and have a partner if you have any good sense at all. And a satellite phone and flares and a few fire crackers and bear spray and a loud air screetcher and a mirror and a powerful flashlight and trail markers all help get you rescued. Some powdered magnesium can be seen from miles and iis great firestarter also have a little alcohol to dress wounds cure a sore throat or burn in an alcokol heater. No hundred pound packs like roman soldiers carried or 70 lb marine packs no no no go light go high tech use magnesium frame pack kevlar carbon fiber titanium. where possible . Squeeze every pound but not every ounce and certainly not every quarter ounce because valuable little things are worth carying And take a bible or new testsament with ppsalms and proverbs to get some spiritual food and maybe a harmonica to amuse yourself and the animals whom the music will attract. Remember you can run across anything you can think of out there in the inner wilderness including angels demons ets elemental spiirits ghosts your own fears your own insanity and paranoia portals time warps and you may realize that nature knows much about you and may be kind or hostile to you. And if you spend enough time out there talking to the trees and rocks you will get a strange far away look in your eyes of those who have seen and know too much.

    I disagree the whistle Ranger Mike showing an orange whistle in the video claiming is a better option than referees whistle. He even uses the words "extra loud" and "extra far". FYI the whistles referees use are commonly Fox 40 classic delivering 115 Db. while the one shown is only 100 decibels. For survival proposes The Fox 40 Sonic blast will deliver 122 db. and the UST Jetscream 122 db.

    You might want to include on this list a good pair of hiking shoes or boots. Seriously, I saw a guy at the top of an 11,000 ft mountain and a 9 mile trail (one way) wearing rubber flip-flop sandals. He said they left in a hurry and didn't have time to grab some shoes. This guy hiked a rugged 18 mile trail in open-toed flip-flops. Anyway, shoes or anything else for that matter are only a suggestion.
