Editor's NotesHello ,
Hope all is well with you and you are ready for the Wilderness Survivor.
In the last issue of this newsletter I wrote about a very useful piece of outdoor gear, a water filter bottle. But how to make your own water filter? In a wilderness survival situation you maybe not have a water filter bottle.
Enjoy your reading!
Have a safe and fun wilderness trip - Respect and protect the wilderness !
Have you heard about RSS feed?Then you probably know that for you it could mean Real Simple Subscribing Ė RSS !
RSS is a real simple way for you to subscribe and read the content published at the Wilderness Survival Skills and other of your favorite web sites. "Fast and easy"! No need to click "Get Mail."
It give you as a user total control. Donít want the subscription anymore? You delete it in a second. Total control includes total anonymity, no worries about giving out your e-mail address.
If you have not used RSS yet, you are in for a pleasant surprise...
First you need an RSS reader ! There is two different types of RSS reader. You can use a special software that reads the RSS feeds or a web based RSS reader. There is free version of both alternatives.
Do you want a free RSS reader?
How it works
For each new addition to the wilderness-survival-skills.com web site you receive the updates immediately through your RSS reader. You will see the headline, a short description and a link for you to click, IF you want to read the whole page.
You will see the content without needing to visit the site. That allows you to scan efficiently. Because I guess you will subscribe to more RSS feed then from the wilderness-survival-skills.com web site.
Why do you need an RSS reader? Because each RSS feed is in a non-HTML format called XML. RSS readers can interpret and display that coding, but Web browsers can't. Soon, RSS/XML readers will be part of every browser and e-mail software. But for now, you need a separate reader.
Lets get started!
Visit the Wilderness Survival Skills web site and look for the little orange XML/RSS button!
How to make your own water filter
Always look for clean water. But in a wilderness emergency situation you may face the fact that the only water available is dirty muddy water. To get safe water to drink you need to purify it. But before
you can purify it, you've to remove all "visual" particles from the water - you've to filter it.
