00:00:39
one of the most important things is to get a fire started as soon as possible in the absence of paper or lighter fluid
00:00:46
it can be tricky to get this going so here's some alternate methods Doritos or any other corn chips are surprisingly
00:00:53
flammable and will work well to get a quick flame once ignited use them to get your campfire going if you didn't bring
00:01:00
any Doritos with you go to your first-aid kit and grab the alcohol cleansing swabs these are very quick and
00:01:07
easy to ignite and will give you a solid flame for around 60 seconds if you fool and cut yourself in a survival situation
00:01:14
you risk losing too much blood or getting a nasty infection you could go into your first-aid kit to get some
00:01:21
bandages but what if you need stitches well unless you live someone that knows how to stitch wounds you could be in
00:01:27
trouble this is where super glue comes in simply pinch the wound close and apply super glue to the surrounding skin
00:01:33
despite what you may think this is actually perfectly safe and will do a great job of holding the wound shut
00:01:39
whilst you find a hospital again imagine you're out hiking and take a nasty fool but this time you've badly hurt your arm
00:01:47
and suspect it might be broken you can make a temporary sling out the t-shirt or blanket this will take the weight of
00:01:53
your arm and reduce the pain while should get to a hospital put my right arm my elbow down into this shirt so
00:02:01
that it's holding it pretty good all right like this then go ahead and actually use the left arm hold good and
00:02:13
put your your hand right through so now you kind of have an emergency sling you can make a fish trap from a two-liter
00:02:20
bottle this trap is quite hard to explain but relatively easy to make so watch this short video to find out how
00:02:26
front section off the top section off and inverted into the bottle into itself and stick it in there what I do is I
00:02:34
usually tie using some bank line or some quarters like that and tie one put a hole in the top and one in the main part
00:02:43
of the ball and tied on there to keep it you know together I see a lot of guys tied and all the way around but then you
00:02:51
have to break apart the whole bottle rig to get your bait out or whatever your fish out to eat alright guys so we
00:03:01
already finished this video but I was trying the fish trap out just to see you know just for a few minutes for you we
00:03:07
wrapped up filming for the day and I caught a bait fish and this was in here literally for about maybe 2 minutes you
00:03:16
can see them down in there actually there's two of them there's two of them see got one here and one here
00:03:31
yeah and that was just two minutes you know maybe a minute not even but the trap works and if I'd
00:03:38
spent more time doing it I'd have a ton more of these useful to catch more fish ori these themselves obviously it would
00:03:44
be hard to catch bigger fish in this trap but it's a good way to catch the small ones huge jugs of water make great
00:03:51
lamps just make sure the jug is full wrap a head torch around it and turn the torch on now watch the jug illuminate
00:03:58
the whole room improvised compass this is one of the oldest and most useful survival hacks out there all you need is
00:04:07
a cup or puddle of water that is dead still a leaf and a sewing needle lay the leaf in the water and gently place the
00:04:14
needle on top of the leaf it will now start spinning before settling and staying still the direction in which the
00:04:20
needle is now pointing will always be north did you know you can actually make a smoke bomb from a ping pong ball these
00:04:27
bulls are incredibly flammable and by wrapping tin foil around the ball whilst leaving a funnel for air you can make a
00:04:33
pretty effective smoke bomb just put a flame to the bottom of the tin foil wrap ball and the smoke will soon start
00:04:39
emerging this will work as a gray SOS signal thanks for watching if you enjoyed the
