    It doesn’t appear we have an official bow drill thread which surprises me. I think making a fire from nature is an essential skill. So follow along as I teach you how to make all the parts for a bow drill and start a fire.

    I’ve done it before, not easy. Most of the soy boys left on this board couldn’t build a regular fire let alone bust a coal with a bow drill.

    Lost Maples State Park doesn’t allow you to cut down any trees so I will have to bring everything with me. I spent today cutting wood. Next we will start building the tools needed for a bow drill.

    [​IMG]

    I have some oak, mesquite, cedar and pinyon.

    The cedar is a soft wood so we will use that for our bow drill tools. The oak and mesquite burn much slower than cedar so they are good for the fire itself. Lastly the pinyon pine has a great smell for outdoor fires if you can get your hands on some.

    Would you like it log cabin style or teepee style? What"s your favorite medium for kindling? I like pine straw. Should I bring my cast tripod and kettle hanger?

    You making assumptions based on politics is hilarious. I grew up doing this shit.

    This is a frustrating post.

    Anyone can light a fire with a lighter. Good job.

    But what if you are in the forest and no lighter or match? Then what? What if your plane crashes and you are all alone in the woods? Could you survive? Not likely without fire. Its one of man's most primitive concepts yet foreign to most.

    The Russians beat the Americans in 1961 when Yuri Gagarin became the first human in space. We could have easily folded but JFK gave a famous speech in the following year saying we intended to go to the moon. Not because it is easy, but because it is hard...


    William Bradford, speaking in 1630 of the founding of the Plymouth Bay Colony, said that all great and honorable actions are accompanied with great difficulties, and both must be enterprised and overcome with answerable courage.

    If this capsule history of our progress teaches us anything, it is that man, in his quest for knowledge and progress, is determined and cannot be deterred. The exploration of space will go ahead, whether we join in it or not, and it is one of the great adventures of all time, and no nation which expects to be the leader of other nations can expect to stay behind in the race for space.

    We set sail on this new sea because there is new knowledge to be gained, and new rights to be won, and they must be won and used for the progress of all people.

    There is no strife, no prejudice, no national conflict in outer space as yet. Its hazards are hostile to us all. Its conquest deserves the best of all mankind, and its opportunity for peaceful cooperation many never come again.

    We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.





    Seven years after the above speech and after JFK had been assassinated, American Neil Armstrong became the first human to land on the moon.

    You can flick your bic. I'm going to build a fucking bow drill.

    I legit learned how to do this at like age 8 from an awesome hippie guy

    Paracord
    rock
    a solid stick
    a flat piece of wood
    a pocket knife

    = fire

    edit: this is him. Yes those are clothes he made himself out of rawhide from a deer that he killed with a bow and arrow (and arrowhead) he made himself.
