The Weekly Tactical Touch-Point: Cattail Hunt Edition
To prepare for this week’s articles on how to process what I call The Fantastic Four, I took my 2 1/2 year old daughter out with me on a cattail hunt.
As we were hiking through marsh and muck it was a joy to see just how much she loved it. Even though it was rather routine for me, seeing her face I could tell that it was a grand adventure for her. The feel of the mud, the sounds of the running water, the life all around her had her in total awe.
She kept going on about finding the “cat’s tail” and was probably a little dissapointed when I finally showed her that the “cat’s tail” wasn’t exactly what her little mind had envisioned. It was nonetheless just as fascinating to her.
There’s so much to learn from these little ones. They truly live in the moment and we could all take a lesson from that.
Without further ado, here’s what I found online this week that might be of interest you:
- Bushcraft.se – Michel Blomgren of Sweden is in the process of filming an excellent series of downloadable wilderness survival videos that are completely FREE. The early ones are subtitled but the latest ones are in English. Even though the information is applied to his native cold-weather, forested country of Sweden there are still excellent tips and instruction and the production quality is quite impressive. Go Mike!
- Residents near landslide stocking up just in case – I thought this was an interesting article. Here the residents live in a “a perennial state of emergency preparedness.” As a side note this is how all of us should be living.
- Edible Rooftop Gardening – An interesting guide on how to make a rooftop garden in a city based on real-life experience. Now you city folk have no excuse!
- Backwoods Home Magazine – A great online resource for lessons in self-reliant living.
