Some survival tools you can make with to make life better:
HOW TO MAKE A FOREST STOVE OR A CANDLE/LIGHT SOURCE
Take a large dried log about 2-3 feet long and about as big around as a basketball and stand it upright on one end where you want your fire for cooking or for light.
Cut/split the top end down about ten inches or a foot into the log in a six piece "pie shape" formation and stuff the cracks with some dried bark and small twigs and tinder. Light the tinder.
You can set your pot right on top and cook as soon as it is burning well or just leave it burn for a candle/light source that will last at least an hour. This will not cause a lot of smoke after it gets started.
HOW TO MAKE A SELF FEEDING FIRE....
Throw out everything you have learned about making a fire.. and this time... put your largest logs on the bottom.. then the next smaller.. then the twigs and then the kindling.
Get your kindling burning and feed it a little bit with a few more twigs.. and let it go. You don't have to baby it as it will keep on feeding itself as it burns down.
ANOTHER FOREST "STOVE"
Find a nice sized conk (those shelf funguses that grows on trees) and place it level in a pile of sand, gravel or dirt with the white underside up.
Use your knife to score a pattern on the white underside...I like a spiral myself... Pour on a little melted pitch or lighter fluid, fat or even cooking oil and light it. You can place your pot or can on top like a burner on your kitchen stove, and it will burn a long time.
A FISHING SPEAR
Another simple way to make a forked fishing spear is to simply split the tip of a sturdy pole into four parts... and stuff a bit of bark or stick into the cuts to force the tips apart. Sharpen the tips.
Dried Mullien stalks make excellent arrows as well as a good fire bow drill. A sharpened stick will stick just as far into an animal as a commercial arrow.. but won't make the animal bleed as much as the commercial arrows or arrows with a stone tip do.
The stems of the thimble berry bush are also good strong and light weight and straight for use as arrows.
Speaking of the thimbleberry.. you can make a decoction out of the leaves and roots for a soap substitute that is good for your hair as well.
Prepare to be a wilderness survivor.
