Electric Caveman

I was on a local bike path with my young nephews when we encountered a garter snake. They were demanding they keep it. But I was insisting we let it go. I won in the end. It seemed as though it just fed on a heavy meal, or was injured. Couldn't tell. But the snake wasn't feeling well regardless.
Oh, btw, my Blog about primitive skills is back up. I'll be adding more content as I get time. Feel free to check it out and see how bad it sucks: www.archaicarcher.com

Ohio sucks. But sometimes they come up with something so cheesy, it's almost funny.
On another note, I am done with Youtube. And I have also started a Rumble channel entitled "Mythical Cheesyness" as a call out to my previous Mythical Cheese Pirate character on Youtube. It includes boring videos of poor quality, as always. I will be mirroring everything here that I upload to there, just so I can have a couple of 'alt-tech' video sites going for me. You know, to have a back up in case of the communist purge and all. Here ya go, just in case: https://rumble.com/c/c-505737

These firestarters are pretty easy and cheap to make. I know, I used a candle. The logic could be...just use the candle. But making firestarter like this produces big chunks that can burn for a long time in case you have slightly wet materials. That's the point. the small wick on a candle wouldn't be as effective. Also, these are one time use things that will be burned in the fire. Anyway, my audio sucked. Thus the cheesy music.

Me and a friend went to explore one of the supposed most haunted places in Ohio, the Moonville Tunnel. Mostly, we just laughed at the ridiculous graffiti. Especially the one about fat chicks.

I found a Christmas tree while anti-flab hiking. This wasn't deep in the middle of the forest or anything. But it was way off of the hiking trail and super far from any parking lot. Why someone would decorate a tree where very few people would even see it is beyond me. Unless it was Bigfoot. Then it makes sense.

I just wanted to do a quick video on making a cup of dandelion "coffee". It's not actually coffee, as the drink has nothing to do with coffee beans. But it is very coffee-like and can be used as a substitute. Plus, it's free and has no caffeine. This is just one method of making a small amount. There are other ways to do it. For instance, if you want to do a whole bunch, it might be wise to use a food processor to grind up the roots and to roast them in the oven. These same methods can be used to make chicory "coffee" too! (using the roots of the blue flowered plants, or chicory, one often sees along highways).

Just another quick boring video. Pine needle tea is good. And super easy to make. I wanted to go full caveman and make this outside to demonstrate using a bow drill, kind of a 2 part video. But the wind today was terrible. I didn't want to risk a forest fire. Maybe we'll do the bow drill thing later as it's own separate video.

It is always good to have as many ways to do something as possible, especially when it comes to fire in certain situations. Plus, fire is fun. I wanted to share a couple of my fire starting things with you. Oh, and PS: you might notice a slight jump cut when I was doing the second method. Some jerk wad was hiking down the trail on his cell phone and screamed an expletive right when I was filming. My young nephews watch my videos, so I trimmed a few seconds out.

It's been dry for the last several weeks, and unseasonably hot, with just some drizzle coming finally this morning. We are experiencing what they call a high-moderate drought. So I did not think we would get any puffballs this year. Or at least nothing worth trying to eat. But I got lucky and came across these while doing my daily hike. I just wanted to demonstrate a quick way to fry and eat these that I like to do.

This video is kind of boring. But I uploaded anyway. We were camping the other night in a local State Park. My sister left some eggs out, and this skunk showed up to steal them. I got super close to it. And, it didn't spray me. Skunks are cool. Poor video quality is due to me being cheap. Later!

WARNING: FAKE VIDEO!! Sorry people, but this is fake. The kids wanted to do a scary bigfoot video so they could show their friends online, so we did. But this made me think: If we can take some poor quality footage of a dude in a ghillie suit walking out of a corn field, throw some scary music over top of it, add some narration to give it a creepy setup and back story, and do this all in about 10 minutes on a free video editor, then how many people claiming to have "evidence" are doing the same thing? How many people are making videos like this, but don't admit it is a setup? There are likely a lot. And some people have built quite a following on social media and video sharing sites with nothing but fake videos and stories. It's far too easy to do. And tempting. Oh well.

I've gotten a few of these scam calls this week and decided to go ahead and share it, just in case someone out there might be getting the same call and aren't sure if they should respond or not. Rest assured, this is not a legit call. If you get one like this, it is FAKE! Don't give in and let the criminal trash get your money.

I was performing my daily anti-flab hiking, and decided to film cooking some milkweed. As usual, cheap phone with a crappy camera. My bad.

I was out at a local State Park eating plants because they are free. Also, wild edibles for the most part are much more nutritious than their farmed/injected/organically-modified/steroid-filled/pesticide-laced counterparts. Just be careful on identifying them and pay attention to the area you get them from. This video was made for no reason btw. I was foraging, and happened to have my crappy phone on me.

I am an outdoors type dude who grew up hunting, fishing, trapping, snorkeling, making and using primitive weapons, etc. I love traditional archery the most. So I like to occasionally do videos about those things. On the other end of the spectrum, I am a hobby programmer, a hobby robotics nerd, and an old-school gamer. Video content can be anywhere in between, or even something random about my world travels or something. Don't expect ultra HD videos though. Sorry, but I don't see the point in spending a fortune on camera equipment unless I am making money with it, which I never intend to do. I make videos for fun.

Later, humans.
