VIDEO: How To Make Fire… Using Ice! Photo – https://youtube.com/watch?v=thbSSuo1Z00
Here’s one of the more unusual ways to make fire – explained with an actual demonstration!
It’s been known since ancient times that the power of sunlight, focused into a concentrated beam, can raise temperatures high enough to start fire. Various writers from ancient times mention vases filled with water or angled mirrors – and used burning lenses to light fires in temples. Excavations have found rock crystal lenses made by the Vikings, though the purpose of these is not certain.
The potential of the sun, when harnessed in this way, is immense: There is an old legend that Archimedes created a weapon that was used in 212 BC to burn Roman warships in a battle.
In modern times, the typical method of using the sun to start fire, known by all, is the use of a magnifying glass. Even a simple glass bottle, left in the dry brush, can start a fire – hence the warnings against it.
Depending on the size of the glass, more of the sun’s power can be harnessed – and I have even seen solar welding using a Fresnel lens a few feet in diameter! At the extreme scale, concentrated solar power stations make use of mirror arrays to collect sunlight from large areas for the purpose of using the heat to generate power.
In this video, our demonstrator proves that it is possible to use ice as the lens to make the fire, so long as it is shaped in the right way. Note of course that you will need sunlight, preferably high overhead, in order to effect this method – but it’s another valuable fire starting technique to add to your bushcrafting skills!
Ok, here’s the video on How To Make Fire Using Ice – let us know what you think! 🙂

This Crazy Off Grid Device Literally Makes Drinkable Water From Fresh Air:
According to NASA, the U.S. is expecting a 100-YEAR LONG MEGADROUGHT.
It's already begun. Ask the farmers in California. They know.
Every survivalist knows that water is of critical importance. You NEED an independent water source that you can count on!
As an interesting "survival rehearsal" - imagine that you turned the tap on right now and nothing came out. How long would you last?
But what if there was another water source literally hidden in plain sight. That's right, I'm talking about the atmosphere!
The amazing thing about getting water from the natural moisture in the air... is that it is ALWAYS available.
This gives you real water security!

Most People Don't Have The Guts To Try This:
An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.
Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
What REALLY Happens When You Bury a Shipping Container? (Hint: It's A Bit Crazy...)
Shipping containers are all the rage - but if you are thinking about buying one, you MUST watch this video first:
Do not, I repeat do NOT do what these lunatics did! Can you spot the "fatal mistake" they made?
There's a general belief that if you bury a shipping container you can create an awesome root cellar / storm shelter / survival bunker.
But is a shipping container strong enough to handle the pressure?
Watch the video to see what happens:
I Can't Help Showing This Off:
If you haven't heard of Claude Davis yet do yourself a huge favor and watch this video.
One of the smartest guys I ever had the pleasure of meeting, Claude set-up a unique prepping system that changed his life forever.
I already tried it myself and let me tell... you I was completely blown away... His surprising tactics could make your life easier and give you the peace of mind you deserve.
Don't just take my word for it... watch his short video and decide for yourself.
