Expedition Kanada - Trailer

He spent 23 days alone in the Canadian wilderness, paddling down two big rivers in a inflatable canoe. It was Peter Perssons second solo expedition into the heart of the wilderness of Canada. The first time it almost cost him his life. This time he brought home some great videos for you. The movie comes in six episodes and you can see them here on Youtube.

Killer Wildlife Shots

Killer Wildlife Shots:

Brothers Randy and Michael Gregg are currently developing a product called the Kill Shot, a replica hunting gun that takes photos instead of firing bullets. Users would locate their “prey” in the crosshairs, then pull the trigger, snapping a time and date-stamped shot, which gets stored on the memory card housed where the standard magazine would normally be. The Kill Shot could zoom and take video as well, but it’s unclear if it would have the magnification of a scope or if it’s essentially a digital camera housed in a gun-shaped case. Interesting idea, nonetheless, but seems like a potential recipe for disaster if misunderstood. (SFGate ran a topically related article over the weekend titled “Wildlife photography embodies thrill of the hunt.”) What do you think?

A gem of an old wood craft film.

Great film share by Robin wood http://greenwood-carving.blogspot.com/A gem of an old wood craft film.: This is an absolute gem. Sent to me by blog Reader Tim Marshall, recorded in 1984 two "bushmen" Bill Boyd and Mark Garner fell a tree, split "slabs" off it and hew them to make house timbers. I have worked with some seriously talented hewers in Japan, Germany and the best from the UK, when I watched the first few seconds of this film with these two chaps sat on the porch sharpening their axes I thought it all looked a bit hammed up for the cameras but just stick with it, they are as skilled and effortless as anyone I have ever seen with an axe.



It was uploaded a year ago and has had only 500 views it deserves to be much better known, lets share it and celebrate the skills of these wonderful folk.

DIY Alcohol Stoves -- Basic Design Considerations

Great Article by http://adventuresinstoving.blogspot.com DIY Alcohol Stoves -- Basic Design Considerations: In a pinch, you can use just about anything to make an alcohol "stove" out of. Really, there are only two criteria: Your stove has to be able to hold a liquid, and your stove can't be made of a flammable material.
What's that? Oh, you want a good stove? Yeah, well that's just a bit more complicated, but no worries. Let's talk about a few basics of alcohol stove design.
