Found on the Internet: 6 Trees Every SUrvivalist Should Know

Being able to identify trees can not only be a source of pleasure, as the first Boy Scouts Handbook opined, but a matter of survival. If you become lost in the woods, trees are an abundant and easy-to-utilize resource, and can be used in a variety of ways, including as food, shelter, cordage, and materials …

Found on the Internet: The GoSun Stove

The GoSun Stove

I found this little gem on Kickstarter today.  The GoSun stove is solar-powered stove that can reach temperatures up to 700F and can cook a meal in 20 minutes in moderate sunlight.  If you read this site regularly, you know that I’m a big fan of devices that don’t have depleting resources (fuel, batteries, etc) …

Found on the Internet: Post-Apocalyptic Key Replacements

I’ve never really thought about locks and keys in a post-apocalyptic world.  But what happens if you have a lock and you need to make a spare key?  Steel will be hard to come by and there are much better uses for it than keys, modern key duplicators require electricity, if you were to make …

Found on the Internet: How to Weld

Found on the Internet: How to Make Rope

You can always use more rope, and if you know how to make it you have as much rope as you need to do anything.  In the BBC series Edwardian Farm, they show how to make rope: You can always use more rope, and if you know how to make it you have as much …

How to Make Soap

If you haven’t noticed in my writing, I’m very much against being wasteful.  At home, I hate making food from a recipe where you only use a part of something and throw the rest out.  When I explained how to make biodiesel I briefly noted that you could use the leftover glycerin to make all …

How to Make Biodiesel

Traditional diesel fuel is made from petroleum, and in a post-apocalyptic world that will be hard to come by.  Thankfully, biodiesel is an alternative that can be made from any organic oil or fat that doesn’t require any kind of modification to your diesel engine. Generally, you are adding a catalyst to a triglyceride-rich liquid …

How to Distill Alcohol, part 3: How to Make Methanol

Methanol, or methyl alcohol, can be used primarily as a fuel source or feedstock (a chemical used to make another chemical).  For our purposes, we can either use it to fuel cars, trucks generators, etc. or to create biodiesel (both very useful in a post-Apocalyptic world).  In this part of our series on alcohol distillation, …
