How To Make Stinging Nettle Tea

Every survivalist needs to know how to forage for foods, but not all natural foods are equal...

In this article I want to cover the advantages of drinking stinging nettle tea and how to make stinging nettle tea when your out in the woods.

The drink itself is very refreshing and typically herbal in the taste and texture. If your at home, you can actually put it in the fridge and drink through the day, for a cool refreshing drink.

In my video below you can see the process from start to finish:

  • Naturally caffeine free.
  • 6 x 20 Bags of our organic cleansing infusion.
  • We never add anything artificial, we don't even bleach our bags

    Although there are just a few months in the year where the nettles are at their best, you can always supplement your diet with shop bought nettles.

    Wilderness Gathering 2018
    Bushcraft And Survival Show

    Undoubtably The Best 
    Bushcraft Show In The UK.

    The very 1st Wilderness Gathering took place in 2003 at The Bison Centre, West Knoyle in Wiltshire, and every year the show gets bigger and better,

    Over the years I have seen this event grow from a small event in one field with some traders and schools sharing Bushcraft skills and knowledge, to a festival of wilderness living skills encompassing Bushcraft, survival and woodland crafts, and, of course, prepping.

    The show has grown into an event with something for all the family with stories and music by the campfire in the evenings and skills workshops and activities throughout the five whole days of the festival.

    WHAT’S THE WILDERNESS GATHERING ABOUT?

    If you've never been to the Gathering before and you love nature and the outdoors, then we have the family show for you:

    Wilderness Gathering, a unique Bushcraft event, is the longest running and still the original festival of bushcraft, survival and primitive living skills.

    The Gathering has become a social event and brings together families and friends, all those interested in Bushcraft and Wilderness living skills to enjoy a weekend of knowledge sharing in a relaxed and family friendly atmosphere

    The show has Bushcraft clubs for all age groups of children to get involved in plus more activities for all including den building and wilderness skills classes for all ages.
    There are hands on demonstrations of game preparation, knife sharpening, basha boat building, archery and axe throwing and primitive fire lighting to name just a few.
    All of these skills are there for everybody and anybody to participate in.

    The Gatherings Is A Full On
    Family Bushcraft & Survival Event

    All the younger children are hugely catered for at the show with their own bushcraft section for under and over 10's.
    The "Coyote" & "Coyote Kids" can join in with a full program of bushcraft and survival related skills and activities.

    I was very proud to be included with the instructors and work with the Coyote Kids activities last year in 2017 - and I'm very much looking forward to joining the team again this year.

    Children's events range from Nature detectives, tracks and signs - Woodlife Trails for the Coyote Kids right up to Pine Resin & mounting Arrowheads for the older Coyotes.

    Knife safety is run every morning and children have a chance to learn carving and whittling skills under full supervision - and they all love making various wooden crafts..!!
    link to Coyote Kids events page here:

    For the rest of us adults there's an amazing amount of bushcraft and survival skills going on each day to keep even the most hardened bushcrafter or survival enthusiast busy all day long.

    You really do learn so much at this show, and it's no wonder, with expert demonstrations, lectures and hands on skills from some of the foremost experts who are always happy to help and impart their knowledge to everyone.

    Prepping At The Show:

    For preppers, bushcraft gives us a firm grounding on which to base our prepping tactics, and prepping for when the SHTF, and we are not missed out either.

    Lectures from renowned prepper, Tom Linden, on why everyone should prep are free for everyone to attend.

    For Die Hard Bushcrafters:

    Just about all aspects of bushcraft and wild survival are covered by the many instructors at the show.
    An amazingly friendly bunch of talented men and women.

    I find, every year, I learn something new that can be applied to my prepping skillset, and I'm sure you will too.

    Checkout the show website here:
    Wilderness Gathering Webiste

    Or you can call for information:
    0845-838-7062

    If you want  to learn real survival skills, from real experts, then this really is the show for you..

    See you all there folks.....

    Wilderness Gathering 2017 - YouTube
    "

    The Wilderness Gathering is, without a shadow of doubt, the most absorbing show on the 2018 Bushcraft & Survival calendar.

    I have been going for many years now and it just gets better and better with so much to do - especially for the children.

    It is not just some money making event wrapped up with a bushcraft logo - it's the real deal.
    Highly skilled and talented experts willing to impart their knowledge freely.
    I don't think there's any other event where so many talented bushcrafters are together at one time.


    Bushcraft (and prepping) is all about us adults learning more skills, and teaching and passing on our knowledge to our children and young people, as well as sharing to everyone who wants to learn new skills. 

    If you only go to one show this year - then this is the one, and if you see me around, say hello.
    I hope to see you there.

    Easy Feel Good Food For
    Wild Camping, Hiking And Backpacking
    The One Pot Crumble

    I suppose when your choosing bugout food, camp food, hiking or backpacking food, three main things come to mind.

    • Compact, light and easy to carry
    • Easy to make, uses only one pot
    • Delicious feel good food

    In this article I show the recipe and my method for making a delicious apple crumble, using only one pot.

    This is definitely a camp favourite, which can also be made with foraged fruits when in season.
    I like the simplicity of this one pot crumble, and normally make it in one pot and also eat it from that pot as well, making it double efficient...

    Here's what to do - 

    For one person I have found that a decent sized cooking apple is enough fruit, along with 1/2 - 3/4 sachet of custard powder and 3 hobnob biscuits.

    • Simply peel the apple and slice into chunks, then add water to level with apples and bring to boil.
      Stir occasionally, and keep the pot lid on.
    • Put the Hob Nobs in a zip bag and tap lightly to crush them up into fine pieces. 
    • Allow to simmer for 1/2 hour, stirring occasionally, and checking apples are getting soft.
    • Add the custard powder (small amounts at a time) and stir into mix - do not add too much as the mix will thicken.
      Next add the crushed Hob Nobs and spread evenly.  
    • Lastly, give the pot a final simmer until it starts to bubble at the top.

    So there you are folks, a very simple, delicious one pot apple crumble.

    Simple and easy to make, and ideal feel good camp food.

    Why not try it next time your out in the woods....

    Happy Prepping Folks,  Steve

    Food Procurement For Survival
    How To Make A
    Windlass Animal Trap For Prepping And Survival

    DISCLAIMER:
    It is illegal to hunt with this sort of trap in the UK. DO NOT DO IT.
    I only practice my skills at setting up various types, and then fully dismantle the trap, leaving no trace.

    Prepping is all about survival, and survival in the wilds mean learning bushcraft skills to keep you alive.
    * Although you cannot leave a trap like this unattended, or hunt animals using this type of trap here in the UK, you can still practice the making and setup of traps. 
    * On private land where there is a vermin problem (normally farms) it may be possible to get a permission to rid vermin from certain areas.

    Trapping For Food

    One of the top priorities for survival in a bugout situation is going to be food procurement, and you need to know as many ways to get a meal on your table as possible. This is essential to all us preppers.

    As with all types of hunting animals for food, there are a few fundamentals that must be followed even before you can consider setting an animal trap and catching your dinner.

    In my opinion you either get animals that are real smart or just plain stupid! Not much else in-between.
     
    To some extent, the stupid ones are fish and rabbits, with fish spending most of the time looking for food and latching onto just about anything that moves underwater, and rabbits.
    Rabbits are real daft and will quite happily sit up, nice and still and pretty much let you shoot them!

    But even these daft animals can sense a predator, and especially a human predator.  
    So precautions have to be made when it comes to making, handling and setting traps.
    You must ensure as little as posible of your human scent gets onto the trapping materials, and the surrounding area where you place the trap.
    This is an art in itself, and leaving no scent of a human and leaving no trace that you have even been there is very difficult to achieve.

    Location Of Traps And Snares

    Good positioning of snares and traps will greatly increase your chances of catching dinner, and by looking for animal highways and short cuts, you can build up an idea of the day to day route that animal takes whilst out looking for food.

    Remember, most of an animals time is concentrated around looking for food, and generally they will take whatever opportunity to get some if it presents itself to them.

    So your job is to find their most popular, active route and provide them with an incentive to check out the food (bait) you have conveniently left for them, and hopefully they will oblige and walk straight into your trap.

    Making A Killer Blow

    As with all types of animal hunting for food, we aim for a very quick, clean kill that's fast, instant and as humane as possible, and the windlass trap is one of those fast methods if the entry into the trap, and trap itself are set out correctly.

    If an animal is not dispatched fast, it will struggle and panic. This panic reaction is similar to human response which cause a massive amount of adrenaline and hormones to be released into the animals body.
    This goes straight to the muscle to aid escape - the muscle meat is exactly what we want as our food, and these huge amounts of adrenaline can easily taint the meat, giving a very unpleasant flavour.

    How To Make A
    Windless Animal Trap
    For Prepping And Survival

    Even a small windlass trap can impart tremendous energy and force at a high speed, directed to an exact kill point within the trap if set and tested properly.
    Dispatching the animal by 'blunt force trauma', the mechanism will release a 'hammer' type blow killing the game instantly.

    Below Are The Principles Of A Windlass Animal Trap

    Once you have decided on a good area to set the trap you have two options:
    1/ Use two flexible saplings and set the trap between them
    or
    2/ Set two posts deep in the ground 

    1/  Between Two Trees

    Here you can see that I use two solid trees to bind my cordage around.
    These have to have flex in them, so therefore saplings make a hood choice as they will 'give' with the force when you wind the windlass up in tension.

    2/  Between Two Posts

    Using tow posts means you can set the trap where you want it along a trail.

    The posts need to be thick enough and strong enough to take the tension and give a little, but also a bracing bar is fixed to the bottom to stop any movement at ground level.
    The bracing bar should have a notch each end to ensure it doesn't slip out.

    From this point on the setting up principles are the same:

    Setting The Batton

    Wind your cord around the two posts several times and tie off.
    This doesn't need to be tight.

    Position the batton in between and the posts and twist around the cord until your happy with the tension, then wind back one turn and put a safety rod across to stop accidental triggering.

    Form The Basic Trigger Mechanism

    There are several different types of trigger that can be used for this trap, but I prefer this type shown here.

    Bait up the trigger at this point.
    Setting this triggers requires a few attempts and practice to get right.!

    Finish Position For The Windlass Trap

    This is the final set position for the windlass animal trap.

    In order to prevent the animal approaching for any direction, it is important to guide the animal toward the front of the trigger in order to ensure a clean kill.

    Final set up.

    With the trap and guide path in place the animal can only approach from one direction and will take the bait head on.

    This will give a blunt force hit directly to the head or neck area resulting in an instant kill.

    My Video Of How To Set  Up A Windlass Animal Trap
    WINDLASS ANIMAL TRAP - How To Catch Small Game For Food - Survival And Bushcraft Skills - YouTube
    A Scaleable Animal Trap

    The windlass is completely able to be scaled up or down depending on the size of animal you are hunting. As the animal reaches forward with its mouth in order to eat the bait, it will be in the perfect position for a direct hit from the batton.

    The bait should be set just above the animals head height to get the trigger to activate correctly.

    Steve Hart UK Prepper

    Trapping is a bushcraft art in itself, and takes years to perfect, but as preppers it is well worth trying to learn these skills, and go out and practice them in the woods.

    In a SHTF situation they could be one of your only ways to procure food.

    When you practice your trap making:  ALWAYS DISMANTLE THEM and leave no trace when you have finished.

    Best And Most Powerful
    LED Torches For Your BugOut Bag
    Review Of The X7R Marauder Torch

    This is the X7R Marauder, made by high end manufacturer, Olight, and in this review I try out this 'coke can' sized torch to see if it's worth adding to my prepping gear.

    The X7R Marauder
    12,000 Lumens
    Of Insane Power!

    Firstly, this is not a torch for the faint of heart!
    It packs some serious power - enough to turn night into day and light up just about everything in its path.
    Standard Olight functionality make this a dream to operate, very easy and very straightforward as you work through the different modes.

    Here's a short list of the basic X7R specifications:

    • Light Source: 3 x Cree XHP70 CW
      Max. Throw: 380 Meters
      Waterproof: IPX7
    • OutputTurbo S: 12000 - 3000 Lumens(3+120 minutes)
      Turbo: 7000 - 3000 Lumens(12 + 110 minutes)
      Mode 3: 3000 Lumens(130 minutes)
      Mode 4: 1000 Lumens(6 hours)
      Mode 5: 500 Lumens(14 hours)
      Mode 6: 10 Lumens(30 days)

    Weighing in at 665 grams and approximately the same size of an iPhone6s long, this feels like a really solid bit of kit.

    It means business and during my test, out performed my expectations.
    The X7R has a host of nifty little features that make this a very desirable, high end torch.

    On/Off lock, motion detection and battery condition are shown here, and indicated by a really cleaver cats eye indicator that double up as your main mode switch.

    Unlike most previous Olight torches I have owned, the X7R has a  completely sealed battery compartment, meaning it is not accessible unless you decide to dismantle the whole torch (something I do not recommend!).

    Instead there is a really fast, 3x faster USB Type-C charging port in the tail end.

    You access this by turning the waterproof end cowl ring.

    I found that charging was, in fact, very fast, although it did take a lot of power out of my charge bank when I recharged out in the forest away from mains power.
    Not necessarily a problem, but worth considering.

    The X7R runs on four of the 3000mAh 18650 rechargeable batteries, which are sealed inside the case. You can see now why it uses a lot of my charge bank power when recharging....

    But by sealing everything into the casing you get an IPX7 waterproof rating - the IPX7 means you can submerse the torch into water upto a depth of one meter without and water ingress or failure.

    So using the torch in the rain or with wet hands presents no problem at all.

    All in all I found the X7R to be quite exceptional, and the performance was beyond my expectations.

    * Here's my review video showing all the functions and a night time test.

    So what do you think?
    There's no denying it, this is one hell of a powerful torch, especially when you consider the actual size of it..!

    I have tried to cover all aspects of this torch and as you can see, the performance is exceptional, and it really does turn night into day.

    Preview of the eagerly awaited longbow from Survival Archery Systems.

    Launch dates and availability are expected to be June this year with a very high interest in the bow already, and in order to really push this project along, the driving force behind the new Atmos bow is founder of Survival Archery Systems, Doug Shadwell.
    Doug has launched a kickstarter programme to really speed things up and get this bow out to the public.

    This is the current available colour options:

  • Cobalt Cerakote

  • This longbow looks to be the ultimate bow for preppers and hunters alike, and is part of the overall development of the SAS bow family.

    High performance, high quality and specifications, along with the ability to maintain compactness seems to be Doug's driving force behind the range of SAS bows.

    How Long will It Take You To Die
    When The SHTF

    Are you a prepper and are you ready for when the SHTF?

    Do you think you are prepared enough, and ready to fight it out, weathering the storm as things get markedly worse before there's any hope of them getting a little better.
    If you haven't thought about prepping before, then there's little hope of starting after the SHTF - Supplies and resources will vanish in days, leaving nothing for the average man in the streets, and by average I mean 90% of the population.

    So if your not a prepper, you have to ask yourself one simply question: How long will it take you to die when the SHTF?

    Could you bounce back and save yourself and your family from the horrors of a SHTF situation?
    I don't think you can. You'd land up like this chap - hungry and a lost soul, just waiting to wilt away.

    Pretty dramatic eh..! Some would say far fetched, even bordering on the ridiculous. That could never happen.

    Perhaps I'm just a scaremongering old fart, a doomsday soothsayer, simply talking out of my tin hat wearing mind.!

    Or maybe I'm not?
    Let's have a look at the real facts
    and actually see how long will it take you to die when the SHTF?

    These are the top 5 most likely things
     to go wrong within 30 days 
    of a major catastrophe:

    • The stuff that we take for granted, on a daily basis, is the very biggest thing that will kill us the quickest.!

    #1:  Lack Of Clean Water

    Our bodies are made up predominately of this substance and without it we can only survive for up to 3 days, bearly any more, and if you are in a hot climate, definitely less.
    Without access to safe, clean drinking water, your chances of survival are minimal.
    Without safe water, sanitation quickly declines and disease will quickly take over as deadly pathogens begin killing people at an alarming rate.

    #2:  Starvation 

    You would be very lucky to last 30 days without any food, some even say 21 days in the average limit.
    With all the shelves empty and no sight of a supermarket delivery truck, all you can do is rely on what you have in your cupboards..

    Massive amounts of the population will be wiped out within a month from simply starving to death, or from food poisoning due to eating rotten foods.

    The idea of starving to death is a very real one, and if you add it to the fact that you will probably be on reduce water intake as well, then it will be a rapid decline in your overall health and ability to function.
    Essential it's only a matter of time before the signs of cronic starvation set in

    Take a step back now and have a good hard look at the amount of food in your house right now.
    Not a lot I bet - and how long could it last.

    #3: Lack Of Medication 

    Stocking up on ample supplies of essential medication Is a very hard process.
    On most accounts you may be able to convince your doctor or pharmacist that you need a 3 month supply, but it's not easy.

    Another important fact to remember is that medicines have a strict use by date, and for some medication it is actually very dangerous to exceed that date.

    If you need life saving medication on a daily basic, even then you will only have a limited supply - as grim as it sounds, you stand a very good chance of running out of these essential medicines.
    This is a nightmarish situation to be in.

    This problem will also apply to the more common drugs, as they begin to get less and less available without new stocks becoming available.
    Lack of everyday first aid type medication would mean cuts and bruises becoming a major issue, especially without antibiotics. 

    Cuts, no matter how small, can easily become infected and gangrene setting in, with fatal consequences.

    #4: Poor Sanitation & Hygiene 

    As well as the above two reasons you are libel to die when the SHTF, is the very real chance of serious infection due to poor levels of sanitation and personal hygiene.

    When the SHTF, the level of overall sanitation will degrade very quickly, with no rubbish collections or means to dispose of waste, conditions will be at a seriously dangerous and contagious levels.

    What do you do about the disposal of the waste your family produces?  By waste, I mean personal waste, your urine and excrement.
    A functioning water supply will only carry on for a few days, and depending on the disaster it could even stop immediately, meaning no fresh, running water and no toilets to flush away waste.

    In the long term food waste will be very minimal, generally down to the lack of available food, but initially you can expect rotting food waste to give rise to many disease carry parasite, and serious life threatening infection will be a very real problem. 

    One of the few species that thrive in these conditions is rats, and they will be a massive problem, and very quickly spread to epidemic proportions.

    #5: You Not Prepared Enough 

    Do you have a plan? What are you going to do when the SHTF?

    Whatever your plan is, if you're not practicing it right now, then chances are, when the time comes you wont have a clue.
    The fantasy of bugging out and living of the land, becoming a master at hunting and trapping your food, and thriving as full time survivalist is painfully unlikely.

    If your not living that lifestyle now then you cannot simply transform overnight.

    The idea of 'going it alone' is massively fraught with pitfalls and inherent dangers that will stop you in your tracks, even before you've cooked your first meal outdoors! 

    Don't Forget These Other Two Important Reasons
    You May Die Quickly
    When The SHTF
    Looters

    It really doesn't take much before gangs of mindless yobs begin systematically looting, from house to house, in search of food and water.

    TVs and electronics wont be their aim this time - without basic supplies they will very quickly become aggressive and violent, wanting anything and everything you've got.
    It will very quickly become a 'dog eat dog' world.

    Simply Giving Up Hope

    Many people will simply give up, and give in to the old adage 'you have to die sometime'..!
    Bad things will happen and the week will lose all will to push on and try to survive.

    If things don't go to plan, or your supplies are compromised by looters, you could even have a friend who dies - all these things will bring the unprepared down.

    So how long will it take you to die when the SHTF?
    Hopefully you'll be one of the survivors and the well prepared, but you will not get there unless you start prepping now.
    Ask yourself, 'why should I be a prepper'? Ask yourself 'what are the what ifs that could effect me'?
    But the big question is: Could I survive, could I help my family and friends survive?

    One answer to those questions that's 100% certain is: if your prepared, you have a 100% better chance than most people....

    Happy Prepping Folks....
