Survival Basket Weaving

Learning a couple of weaving techniques will open the door to a whole new way of being able to store survival items. Weaving baskets for containers is more of a skill to utilize for long term survival situations.

The above basket on the left was made from grass and the one on the right was made from Yucca leaf.

This is a skill that needs to be practiced in order to make it proficient for the survivalists.

Stay Prepared! Stay Alive!

Paracord Fishing Lures

Here's a new saying, "One mans trash is another mans fish bait". When in a survival situation, always check out your surroundings for things that can be useful in saving your life. 

These days trash can be found everywhere, even in places you would not expect it to be. Bottles and cordage can be found washed up on shore lines. Bottles and cordage both have many survival uses.

After watching the video, maybe you will get some ideas of your own on how to turn discarded items into survival trinkets. I use to throw away the cut off ends of my different colored paracord cordage, but now, I add pieces to my survival kits to make fish lures.

Next time you go fishing, try fishing with lures made from trash like bottle caps and soda can pull tabs. The more practice you have at using these type baits, the better ahead of the game you will be when you really need to use them.

Stay Prepared! Stay Alive!
