So You Think You’re A Survivalist?

Franke Schein In Alaska

 

At the age of eight years old I had made-up my mind that I wanted to be a Mountain Man.

By the time I was Ten, I had read nearly everything published about survival. At the tender age of 11; I ran away from home to chase those dreams…

Over the course of the next year, (I didn’t know it at the time) but I executed a Tactical Bug Out from the deadly swamps of Florida, along a route that took me through backwoods of Georgia and Tennessee. I eventually settled myself down in the Daniel Boone National Forest—Koomer Ridge Kentucky. I was twelve years old at the time.

Along the way I managed to elude a boatload of police, truant officers, and nefarious people that were out to either capture me, or hurt me. The world was a different place back then, but it was nonetheless as dangerous place for a skinny eleven year old kid. Sexual predators, druggies, modern-day slave traders, and a host of others roamed the streets and countryside looking to take advantage of children. Gangs of every description plied their violence wherever they could; and farmers were likely to “shoot first” when confronted with a “chicken Stealing” runaway kid.

I learned hard, and I learned real quick the ways and manners of becoming a young survivalist. I grew up in the woods, and later migrated to the streets of America’s biggest cities. Cities that offered food, shelter, and a new lifestyle. A life of running with the violent street gangs—most of whom were runaway’s themselves. They were the outcast that society didn’t talk about, and the media only mentioned when one of their dead body was found in some ditch or garbage dumpster.

Many of these runaway kids ended-up in “Snuff Films” that were widely circulated at the time. Some stranger would offer food, money, shelter, and friendship. Only to later drug the kid, and film them being sexually abused—and then murder them by slitting their throat on camera. Many young boys and girls lost their lives to these “snuffers” as they were called in those days.

But I never forgot my “survivalist country-boy” roots; as often I would grab my backpack and start walking out of the city to reacquaint myself with the forest dwellers. For months I would play in the woods; hunting, trapping, fishing, stealing grub where I could, and doing my very best to keep the law from capturing me.

Twice I was cornered and caught by Park Rangers and Police that were just a little smarter than I was. Twice they locked me up in a Juvenile Detention Center. A prison for little kids; a finishing school for young career criminals. Bellevue Kentucky along the Ohio river was a very bad place at the time. Louisville’s Juvenile Detention Center was the pits. Once the guards closed those steel doors at night; it was every kid for himself. You learned how to fight, how to quickly incapacitate, and how to be a Man at 14 years old. It was one of those “Do or Die!” experiences that came with the territory, and came with the time.

Each time that they locked me up—I would plan, and later execute my escape. Sometimes it took weeks or months, other times just a matter of days. Give me one single chance to “rabbit”—and then color me GONE. Twice I made my escape back into the forests of Kentucky and Tennessee. They never caught me again. I’d had enough of that crap to suit me the rest of my life.

Life in the woods was severe. The nights were cold, the hunger pangs omnipresent, the thought of being captured never out of my mind. When it rained I got wet. When it snowed I was cold. Bathing was done in the creek or ponds. Drinking water was boiled in an old tomato can. Wild edible plants were plentiful, but toilet paper was the Grand Prize. A steady diet of fish and greens will quickly convince you of this…

I stole what I could, when I could, and where I could. Nothing was safe around me. My first .22 rifle was acquired from a broke-down pickup truck on a rainy backwoods Kentucky dirt road. I learned how to shoot for meat, how to dry it out, and it helped to ease the constant hunger.

Fishing for catfish became a “hunger easing” passion. Bank lines, spear fishing, netting, and bow fishing were added to the survival skill-set. Snares and traps that I learned from reading the US Army Survival Manual kept me busy running the trap line. Some days would be good, others days were real bad. You took the bad with the good. There was no place to fall back to, and no choice but to put the left foot in front of the right.

Wild onions, potatoes, carrots, and a host of other veggies and fruits added to the (sometimes) daily meal. Supplemented with rabbit, squirrel, coon and possum; the meat helped to add protein to vitamin-deficient diet. The hides were used for many things—but mostly I traded them for cigarettes and .22 ammunition.

Other people lived out there in the forest. Most were criminals hiding out from the law, others were operating moonshine stills, or growing marijuana crops. All were dangerous people when surprised or confronted, but I learned how to barter with them; once that they understood that I was a run-away kid.

The “Bush Hippies” and “Back To Nature” crowd flooded the woods in the late 1970’s. They built earth-shelters houses, cute little cabins, and got themselves back to nature. But on the side they dealt in drugs, illegal guns, and often times formed their own little gangs. Gangs reminiscent of the Charles Manson’s “Helter Skelter” crowd. Being around these devil worshipping freaks brought another level of a dangerous element to the survival mix. A few people ended-up as human sacrifices to this crowd.

My home was a small earthen cave—a former bear den. I could barley stand up in it, but it was small, and easy to heat in the winter months. I learned how to keep the fires small, how to NOT draw attention to myself, and that no matter how nice that fire feels—I was still cold to the bones.

These days I look back onto those primitive days of my youth with resignation that I could have perished. But I am thankful that GOD allowed me to survive through those times, and grow into the Man that I have become today. I have been blessed in many ways; and I am humbled by the experiences.

I’ve watched some of the YouTube survival videos being posted out there. I have learned a few things here and there. It surprises me that there are so many people out there waning to live the life that I lived at a young age. Yet; I think that they don’t realize what they are wishing for. What Mother Nature has in store for them.

It’s pretty easy to fantasize about living off the land—but the stark reality isn’t as simple as what one would expect. The elements necessary to live off the land require more than gear and equipment. It requires skills and patience. It also requires a reality based survival plan—not the bullshit that I’ve seen on the internet.

Forget all that “Dual Survival” crap and come back to reality. Bear Gillis and Survivor Man have nothing in common with real survival. Their shows are teaching people to take unnecessary risks, and that it’s possible to live off the land anywhere. That’s why very few of their shows are done during the winter months. The few that I have watched, always end up with them “finding” what they need at “exactly” the right time. In real life it doesn’t work that way.

Here in Alaska—seven experienced mountain climbers have perished on Mount McKinley. These are the people that climb mountains for a living, and as a serious hobby. In some parts of Alaska, people walk out into the woods, and are never heard from again–EVER!

Executing a Bug Out should be the last thing on a survivalist’s mind. Bugging Out should be a last option when everything else fails. But then the real world of survivalism actually begins. Here’s what I think about bugging out:

  • You will not be alone out there.
  • Shooting a gun will get people’s attention that will do you harm.
  • Camp fires will give away your position.
  • Flashlights a night are signals to “Come Steal My Shtuff” cuz’ I’m stupid.
  • Food should replace battery operated gear.
  • Night Vision devices are a waste of time in the field.
  • Over-reliance on technology will get you in trouble, or dead.
  • You cannot live out of your Bug Out Bag forever.
  • If you have no Safe Area to bug-out towards—you are already a victim.
  • Wild edible plants are hard to find under three feet of snow.
  • You gotta’ sleep sometime, that’s when people like me “ghost” into your camp and take you stuff and life!

You Ain't Gonna' Be Alone Out There...

In a real survival situation, you have to understand that you will not be able to just head out into the woods and set-up a clandestine survival camp. The longer that you remain in one area, the more of the area’s resources you will use, and thus you will have to travel farther away from camp to get meat and veggies. That’s when you are most exposed, because your camp is a stationary area that will be easy to ambush. Never stay in one area more than 48-hours. Even then, you have to change sleeping areas several times, or set-up a decoy camp to draw the “bushwhackers’ into your own ambush site.

For those survival crisis that has you feeling government or UN troops—I got some real bad news for you: If you head into the woods you have already lost!

Make no mistake about it; the technology is on their side. They have all the cool toys and sophisticated weapons. Forward Looking Infrared Radar, Thermal Imaging, Satellite Movement Detection, Satellite Movement Tracking, Ambient Temperature Tracking, Chlorophyll Based Tracking Sensors, Sound Sensors, Movement Sensors, Heat & Light Sensors—most of these platforms are both airborne and space based devices. You will never even know that you are being watched and tracked. It would be better if you stayed in the cities and melted into the framework of what’s going on. When the Soviets invaded Poland in 1968, that’s what the Polish resistance did. They stayed hidden in plain sight, and caused the Russian Bear much grief.

If you think that you have what it takes to survive out there by yourself when being hunted by seasoned and experienced troops. Think Again! You have absolutely no chance against the military special forces, I don’t care what country their from. Rambo was a fictional Hollywood character—and you ain’t  him!

Your days will be filled with fright and fear. If you don’t believe that—then you have never been exposed to bullets screaming by your right ear. Your night will be cold because if you build a campfire to stay warm—you will probably never awaken.

And finally; for those off you that are heading out into the bush at the first signs of SHTF—what is your wife gonna’ say about that? Do you think that she’s gonna’ want to drag herself and the kids out into the cold dark countryside where Bad People with guns are waiting?  Better think about that little scenario, before you head off into your Bug Out Experience.

Like anything else that I have written; these are my own ideas, and the way that I work things out. They work for me, they might work for you—or not. It was written from the heart, and not to proclaim that anyone is doing things wrong, or that I’m right. It is what it is, and if you take exception to it—Tough Shit–Deal With It!

IRAN; The New Nazi Party

وتبقى تهدد إيران إسرائيل والغرب مع التدمير النووي. مؤخرا؛ الرايخ الرابع قد حذرت من أنها ستطلق الصواريخ إلى تركيا: صواريخ تستهدف الدرع الصاروخي لحلف الناتو – نشر درع لحماية أوروبا وإسرائيل بسبب الطموحات النووية لإيران، واحتمال أن إيران قد تشن على صاروخ لم يسبق لها مثيل برج في إسرائيل. إيران تهدد بضرب تركيا في حالة مهاجمة إسرائيل، الولايات المتحدة بعض القادة الأمريكيين قد اقترح علانية أن قوات العمليات الخاصة ينبغي نشر لإيران، ويتخذ هذا المخلوق الشر من الصورة. وأنا اتفق 100 ٪! وقد حصلت على هذا الرجل الواجب اتخاذها من مثل الكلاب المسعورة أنه. كل يوم وعلى شاشة التلفزيون بإسهاب نفس الخط من الكراهية – يوما بعد يوم؛ كان محتدما في التلفزيون الإيراني حث اتباعه مجنون على “القضاء على اليهود إيقاف خريطة” – خط ذو إسرائيل قلقا بعض الشيء. بقلق إلى درجة أنها لن يفاجئني عندما “سلاح الجو الإسرائيلي” قنابل على المحطات النووية يعود إلى العصر الحجري. تذكر؛ هذا هو زعيم بلد سوف إرم مواطنيها بالسجن لمدة خمس سنوات إذا كان لهم السفر إلى إسرائيل. نفس البلد التي تحدث حالة تعليق الشواذ جنسياً، ويقتل المتظاهرين سئموا حماقة هذا القرد. أنا متأكد من أن خلف الكواليس محمود أحمدي نجاد هو “لمس” نفسه على احتمال استخدام القنابل النووية على إسرائيل. إذا كنت تعتقد أن سعر البنزين مرتفع الآن؛ انتظر حتى يذهب الغرب إلى الحرب مع إمبراطورية الشر من إيران. البحرية الإيرانية قد تم تدريب لسنوات على إغلاق مضيق هرمز – حيث كروز 40 في المائة ناقلات النفط في العالم. إيران قد أمضى قدرا كبيرا من الوقت والجهد للتأكد بأن العالمين النفط توريد يتأثر. إيران تبني 3 غواصات أكثر للقوات البحرية اسأل نفسك سؤال بسيط: “لماذا بلد منتصف الشرقية إلى الغواصات”؟ ” لإغلاق المضيق، والدخول في نطاق إسرائيل القذائف – هذا هو السبب. دعونا لا ننسى أن إيران قد قتلت الأميركيين. أنها إحدى القوى الرئيسية خلال السنتين الأوليين من 9so في العراق دعا) حركة المقاومة. وكانت “القوات الخاصة الإيرانية” الواحد لمعظم المسؤولين عن هجمات حرب العصابات ضد الجنود الأمريكيين. وهي أيضا واحدة من المصدرين الرائدة في العالم للأسلحة النارية والمتفجرات والذخائر. حماس وحزب الله كانوا مسلحين مدججون بالسلاح بهذا البلد (النازية) المتعصبة التي هي مصممة على بدء حرب عالمية أخرى.

Iran keeps threatening Israel and the West with nuclear destruction.

Recently; The Fourth Reich has warned that it will launch missile into Turkey: Missiles aimed at NATO’S missile shield—a shield deployed to protect Europe and Israel because of Iran’s nuclear ambitions, and the likelihood that Iran might launch an unprecedented missile barrage at Israel.

Iran threatens to hit Turkey if US, Israel attack

Some US leaders have publically suggested that special operations forces should be deployed to Iran, and take this evil creature out of the picture. I concur 100% !

This guy has got to be taken down like the rabid dog that he is. Every other day he’s on television spouting the same of line of hate—day after day; he rages on Iranian television urging his demented followers to “Wipe The Jews Off The Map”—a line that has Israel a little worried. Worried to the point that it wouldn’t surprise me when the Israeli Air Force bombs their nuclear plants back into the stone age.

Remember; this is the leader of a country that will toss its citizens in jail for five years if they travel to Israel. The same country that hangs homosexuals, and kills protesters that are fed up with this monkey’s crap.

I’m sure that behind the scene Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is “touching” himself at the prospect of using NUKES on Israel. If you think that the price of gasoline is high now; wait until The West goes to war with the evil empire of Iran.

The Iranian navy has been training for years on shutting down the Strait of Hormuz—where 40% of the world’s oil tankers cruise. Iran has spent considerable time and effort to insure that the worlds oil supply is affected.

Iran builds 3 more submarines for navy

Ask yourself a simple question: “Why would a mid-eastern country need submarines”?” To shut down the Strait, and to get into missile range of Israel—that’s why.

Let’s not forget that Iran has already killed Americans. They were one of the leading forces during the first two years of Iraq’s 9so called) resistance movement. Iranian Special Forces were the one’s most responsible for guerilla attacks against American soldiers.

They also are one of the world’s leading exporters of firearms, explosives, and munitions. Hamas and Hezbollah have been armed to the teeth by this fanatical (Nazi) country that is bent on starting another World War.

A Message To Young Patriots

Greeting From A Fellow Patriot,

Throughout my existence, it has always been uppermost within the furthest reaches of my mind that certain civil liberties were endeavored to be trampled upon by seditionists within the fabric of Ameri-can society. A group of individuals and corporate entities that covertly sought to dismantle the foundation of all that this nation was built upon. To trample upon the sacred constitution that which laid waste and bare the lives of so many of our brethren, to wit the sacrifice of those that gave their everything and all—to a cause much greater than themselves.

From the Lexington Green to our present battles in the Mideast territories, patriots of America entered into harms way with unparallel thought of self; yet unselfishly giving all that they espouse upon their own declaration of freedom against imperial adventurism at the hand of totalitarians that seek to bring down this nation and its way of life.

Our lives have been untouched for over 200 years, insofar as would be categorized as internal strife and revolutionary acts of guerilla warfare. Yet, there exists within this great reclamation of our con-stitutional rights, a certain rogue ideology that further enumerates that warfare is required in order to secure and solidify the principals upon the United States Constitution. An exodus from the realties that brought Americans out from under the yoke and leash of British imperial servitude. A journey into the violence filled world of war within our own borders—Americans against Americans.

I submit that revolution is both a right, and a sacred duty to every American that resides within our borders. Consequently I submit that a revolution would change the face of America and it’s zealous political agenda—but at a steep cost that far exceeds what America’s forefathers could have envisioned during their struggles. I submit that our society, our world, and our country has evolved from those days of muskets and bayonet charges, into a militaristic society that embarks upon wholesale destruction of life without pause or regard for the long-term ramifications thereof. Our nation’s moth-ers have wept and despaired for far to long upon this revolutionary principal.

With utter dismay I have witnessed the obsessive nature of a giant beast arising from the snake pit in our nation’s capitol. A pit of vipers brandishing forked-tongues that deceive the populace with their charm and pompous polished ideologies. This awakening beast feeds upon it’s own unchecked growth, hoping to claim as it’s own, the very lives and souls of its countrymen. But absent from the moral-istic fiber that so intertwines the society of America. Instead, this beast reaches out with it’s many tentacles to wrap itself among the lives of those it swore to serve and protect, and failing to do so, em-barks upon a devious glorification of itself, and seeks to shield and insulated itself from the wrath of those that are cognizant of it’s miserable failings.

I have stood on the sidelines for a great portion of my adult life, watching across the vast horizons for a sign that would bring this epic struggle onto my doorway. At times I would learn or recognize that certain events could be the precursor of that which many so feared, and others desired. The second revolution that topples the pretentious undermining vermin working against America’s founding prin-cipals.

I hear the rumblings of discontent from all walks of life, from nearly every sector, and all speak the same language of distain and malice against the beast arisen. Even then, there are many within, that actively seek to justify a war by weakening the beast through a persisted attack against the system so despised by so many. A war that they claim is both justified and victory capable within our grasp—that we must be the propagators that fire the first angry shot—thereby creating the perfect conditions conducive to further propagation that ushers in a second revolutionary war.

My friends and patriots—that is not the way, at the present time. Do not clamor for war—for the price might very well be your own children and kin’s blood that you offer. Say nothing of your own blood and lives; for a blood debt will be owed by all that tread too quickly and foolishly into this foray. Now is not the time for revolutionary acts that pit each against the other. The time for that must not be on our hands, nor will it be upon our blood. Leave that blood debt to the cronies of the beast—let them taste their own blood first.

A new war must be undertaken—a new methodology that battles from within the beast usurper. We must tear off the mask of anonymity from those hide from our wrath and piety. No more can these petty administrators be allowed to seek or hold elected positions within our political machine. They must be purged as a bad rash must be purged from an infants derriere. These socialist insects must be identified and brought into the light of public opinion—then banished from public servitude forever. America needs not another war, for we have always been at war throughout our history, as our cemeteries will so attest. We must first fight this coming battle with our political weapons—our combined and unified voices that thunder and echo across the plains of America.

Voices that shake the very steps of the national capitol, causing those inside to gaze furtively through its many windows in fear of what builds upon the streets of America.

That is true rebellion, that is true revolutionary tactics—and the cost isn’t forthwith as steep as Americans killing other Americans. I submit that our course must be as such. That we must restrain our an-gered rage, before it commits us onto the path of blood-letting and violence. For that must not be allowed to happen unless there is no other choice, until the choice is taken from us, and until the beast rises up in violence against humanity. Only then can we tread upon this path with God’s justification and mankind’s sympathies—for anything less than that would be anarchy that leads to our own doom.

Teach not angered retaliation to your children and their children—abstain from harboring mal-content hatred for a unjust system, when the unjustness lays upon the foreheads of those responsible for the beast’s awakening—for the beast’s appetite for power and wealth far re-moves itself from the eyes of God, and foolishly believes itself above God’s wrath and judg-ment.

Sharpen your wits as you would sharpen your battle knives. Razor sharp minds incorporated and united among the far-flung brethren of our cause will damage more than ten thousands knives in a single stroke. For the beast fears not our knives; yet it shuns and hides within its own hypocrisies against the rushing tide of disenfranchised angry voices.

Lest you forget; maintain your readiness both intrinsically and extrinsically. Keep company with those that have crossed the lines of illusionary propaganda to arise in defiance of the beast’s agenda. Shake hands upon the altar of kinship among the brethren that fly the flag of glory in the face of these adversities—for that is what the beast utterly fears and despises, thus make itself weak.

For who among us would be named less than a true patriot, if by action and singularity of mind—he so challenged the beast’s growing blood lust with not a clenched fist—but an open hand that points a shameful accusing finger–calling out the beast’s in its reproachful appe-tite; admonishing those tentacles that sought to appease their own greedy hunger at the cost of our enslavement and subjugation thereof. None; none upon the face of this earth can lay fault or blame at the feet of those that undertake to sheath their knives in the name of ad-dress and grievances, for that is the way the beast can be dismantled in its entirely without obliging the debt of blood inherent. Let us seek a remedy such as this, instead of killing the sons and daughters of America in order to propagate further political discord—for anything other than that feeds the sustenance of the beast, and nourishes its insatiable hunger ever-more. This we cannot more so allow.

Hold close to you heart the innocence of your youth, and clench your fist upon the hilt of your battle knives—but release them for the moment to ponder a world rife with the foul stench of blood spilled at our hands—a stench arising from the slaughtered children of our brethren and kinsmen.

In conclusion; I offer this as a means to an end. That the scales and balance of justice weigh our actions in the coming years. That our cause remain both vigilant and deliberate, and that our actions be honorable and steadfast in the face of this epic struggle for our national identity. I pray that our action exemplify those of America’s forefathers in their struggle against the beast arisen—and that our resul-tant struggles bequeath our children’s children a country basking in the light of democracy and freedom, and a nation of citizens that love their country and fear not their government as we do this day.

Survival: What it’s really like

The Pioneer Bug Out Bag

Survival: What it’s really like

 Franke Schein – April 28th, 2010

No matter what you’ve ever heard, or that you’ve ever read—survival out in the bush is a bitch!

 Many of my friends that claim to be survivalist have never really tested themselves. What they have done is spend a boatload of money on gear and supplies thinking that’s all they will need to make it through any adverse situation.

 Uh-Huh—sure thing Budro….

 The reality is that having gear does not make a survivalist. Anybody can buy gear, but true survivalism represents far more than acquiring a Bug Out Bag—it encompasses a wide range of primitive survival skills, tactical knowledge and experience, as well as having actually taken the time to hone those skills to perfection.

 One of the most basic skills that a survivalist can learn is the art of making fire when there are no matches. It’s not just good enough to read a book and know how to do it—you must be comfortable at constructing a “Fire Bow”, and building a fire from scratch. Fire is the most critical aspect of primitive survival skills. Without a fire, you are basically left out in the cold, and trying to fill your belly with grubs, snails, and berries. That’s not a good deal unless it’s forced on you.

 In my personal opinion the following skills are paramount to a survivalist:

 Primitive Fire Making

Shelter Construction

Primitive Water Purification

Small Game Traps & Snares

Animal and Human Tracking

Weather Prediction

Edible Plant Recognition

Smoking & Curing Wild Game

Primitive Herbal Remedies & Methods

Primitive Weapons & Tools Manufacturing

 These are the skills that will get you through any situation, even those situations that leave you without so much as a knife. That to me is the ultimate survival scenario. It’s one thing to get lost out in the woods, it’s a totally other situation when you have to escape and evade, or the situation is forced upon you by outside influences.

 So what’s it really like out there?

 It rains when you least want it to, or least expect it…

The going uphill is rougher than you ever thought…

The mosquitoes have quadrupled in size and appetite…

You can’t find the wild edible plants because its late in the season…

That cute little waterproof match case wasn’t really waterproof after all…

The batteries in your GPS corroded in the rain and stopped working altogether…

That expensive Cabella’s Rain suit just started leaking because your tore another hole in the shoulder…

Those Power bars and Beef Jerky just didn’t fill you up like you first thought they would…

Your rifle and pistol are covered in dirt and rust…

Your didn’t pack enough toilet paper, and now you’re wondering which expensive pants to cut up…

The fire won’t stay lit because it’s raining really hard…

Smoke won’t keep the bugs away from you while you’re eating…

You spent $350.00 on a decent pair of boots—but both of your heels have formed painful blisters…

That small cut on your right hand is starting to get infected—and you are worried about it…

You wake up in the morning to frost on the ground-and your sleeping bag is a summer bag…

It starts snowing in the middle of the night, and your high up in the mountains with no snowshoes…

You’ve just ran out of food because a 1000-Lb Grizzly Bear took it from you…

You’ve been spotted by four heavily armed survivalist—your pack weighs 50 Lbs-you can’t run…

You cross a bridge and get ambushed on the other side…

A tornado rips through the area that you’ve set up camp in…

That stream you want to cross is full of poisonous snakes and the water is brown…

There’s a massive forest wind being fueled by the wind and its heading your way…

 I can tell you from experience that things out in the bush country are rarely what you expect them to be. There’s always something that goes wrong, breaks, gets wet, falls from your pack, or stops working altogether. It’s called “Murphy’s law” and Murphy is a evil bastard that preys on the unsuspecting survivalist.

 I tried to keep warm in sleeping bags that were soaked because that “waterproof” cover wasn’t really waterproof—it was “Water resistant”.

 I’ve bought disposable lighters for my pack that didn’t work when I needed to make a fire and was counting on them.

 Boots that are supposed to be the very best become worthless when I’ve snagged and broken the boot laces. You quickly learn to keep extra laces in the pack.

 Batteries have failed when I needed them the most, as have countless so called “survival gear” that I was hoping would fill a void.

 All in all; I had to learn these lesson the hard way. It’s never been easy for me, as all of my “survival quests” that I have undertaken have been in very remote primitive settings such as the high snow capped mounts, the arid hot desert, and the steaming southern jungles.

 Each of these environments have taught me that technology is great—but it very well might leave you empty handed when you least expect it. It’s always better to learn basic primitive survival skills first. It also taught me that in order to survive, you must constantly test yourself in the most extreme conditions that are available to you.

 Sometimes it easy to fantasize about what you will do in a given survival situation. But let me tell you from personal experience that it’s rare for things to happen like we think they will. What is required is that you spend a lot of time in the most remote, the most inhospitable places that you can find—and start learning primitive skills before you will actually need them to save your life.

 One of the ways that I used, was to wait for the absolutely worse weather to hit the area—the kind that has all the news stations going nuts, and the weather alert scanner running non-stop. That’s when I would head out in the woods with minimal gear and hunker down in the bushes. You’d be surprised that the things flowing through your mind when faced with a severe winter storm, or a tornado that has touched down, or a severe drought—when you are near helpless during these events.

 The things about survivalism is this: with all of the preparations that you undertake, are you giving enough time and effort to the fact that you might not be alone out there. What I mean is the simple fact that you will probably have your spouse and kids tagging along. That changes the entire perspective of both the Bug out bag, and your approach to survival when TSHTF.

 While my children were very young—4-6 years old, I took each of them out into the woods during rainstorms, winter storms, and whatever mother nature threw at us. Each of my kids was taught that being wet and cold is miserable—but it’s survivable too. They were taught how to purify water with just wood ashes, sand, and pebbles, as well as how to build small animal snares to catch dinner.

 It paid off tremendously so far, as my kids now teach other kids basic survival skills, firearms, escape and evasion, and sometimes mixed martial arts. Skills that might one day prove useful to each of them, but let’s hope that they never have to use those skills in the first place.

 Learn some primitive skills—get beyond the rush to fill your pack with gear. In the long run it will benefit you and those around you.

NJ man tells police he tossed baby off bridge

By SAMANTHA HENRY
Associated Press Writer

WOODBRIDGE, N.J. (AP) — A man who snatched his infant daughter from the arms of her maternal grandmother while the child’s mother was in court getting a restraining order against him told police he threw the baby off a bridge and into a frigid New Jersey river, prompting a massive search Wednesday beneath a busy parkway.

 Search teams, including boats, dogs and helicopters, scoured the area beneath the Garden State Parkway’s Driscoll Bridge in central New Jersey for any signs of 3-month-old Zara Malani-lin Abdur. Acting New Jersey Attorney General Paula Dow called the incident “an example of a horrific case of domestic violence.”

 Authorities suspended the search after dark and planned to resume at daybreak Thursday.

Authorities say the girl’s father, 21-year-old Shamsiddi Abdur-Raheem of Galloway Township, allegedly forced his way into the grandmother’s East Orange apartment around 4 p.m. Tuesday, striking her in the face, choking her, and forcibly taking the baby, wrapped in a blanket and a pink and gray onesie, before fleeing in his vehicle. The 60-year-old grandmother, who police declined to identify, chased after Abdur-Raheem and was struck when she tried to stop him by throwing herself in the path of his van. She was treated for her injuries at a local hospital and released.

 Abdur-Raheem was arrested four hours after the abduction in southern New Jersey, and allegedly confessed to police that he had tossed the child from the bridge before driving to consult with his Imam, who then drove him to the home of a relative who called police.

 Abdur-Raheem faces charges of kidnapping, attempted murder aggravated assault and child endangerment when he is arraigned Thursday morning in Superior Court in Newark. It was not immediately clear if he has retained a lawyer. He is being held at the Essex County Jail on $700,000 bail.

 The child’s mother, Venetta Benjamin, who has sole custody of the infant, was in a Newark courtroom seeking a restraining order against Abdur-Raheem at the time of the alleged abduction. Her lawyer, Mitchell Liebowitz, said the baby was snatched before the order was served.

Benjamin briefly emerged from her mother’s East Orange apartment Wednesday morning, telling various media outlets; “I just want my baby to get back home,” and imploring anyone who may have seen her to contact police.

 

Abdur-Raheem and Benjamin, who are not married, are enrolled at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey. Abdur-Raheem is listed as having done an internship in the Juvenile Section of the District of Columbia attorney general’s office in Washington, D.C., in March 2009.

 Acting Attorney General Dow said there was a history of “bad blood” between the estranged couple, adding that despite reports that they were both striving college students. “This is an example of a horrific case of domestic violence,” she said. “It cuts across all economic levels.”

 

This is a “Domestic Violence” incident?

Bullcrap!

This is another Islamic Honor Killing at the hands of yet another Islamoturd!
