Also, "Happy People: A Year in the Taiga".
The best thing to do is to do stuff yourself and learn from your mistakes, but there's one youtube channel I have to recommend. At first the guy looks like a typical retarded hippie, but if you listen what he says, most of it actually makes sense.
This channel is not really about survival, but then again survival is not all about skills, it's also a mental game. The sole reason we're not all survivors is our culture and this channel is all about breaking these chains.
Yeah. If you're browsing /out/ Survivorman is like mandatory.
Where is there no Ray Mears on your list? Ed Stafford is a faggot. Thanks anyway.
Out Of The Wild - The Alaska Experiment
I Shouldn't Be Alive
Ed Wardle - Alone In The Wild (If you want to see a city boy crying in the wilderness)
A really good one I saw and havnt been able to find was an episode where the guy had to make a fire in the rain using firesticks. That is probably something everyone should learn to do just in case.
Does anybody know it?
Happy people: a year in the taiga
i must of watched this close to 100 times by now. the most bad ass survival documentary you will find. Its in Russian but has subtitles.
learn it, love it, live it
All he did was anneal it. That is exactly what you do with nothing more than a campfire. You are not making a hardened edge. It would work very well fora first tool in that situation. It can be sharpened and stay sharp long enough to perform quite a few tasks before needing to be sharpened again. He's also not quenching it for heat treating since it wouldn't be hot enough for that purpose. He'd just be cooling it down to work with it by hand.
It is the same thing with the knapping. He isn't using the proper tools or proper methods, but it will get the end result he needs for the limited task that needs to be done in the short amount of time.
Lars Monsen - Across Canada (with English subtitles)
I actually haven't seen this particular program yet, but I've liked everything else he's done, so I'll recommend this. It was the only full program with proper English subtitles I could find.
