Dakota Fire Hole

I definitely can see Rangers using this kind of fire lay for its stealth and wind protecting properties. They use a shovel to dig it in the videos (which is much is easier) but you can use a digging stick or other makeshift tool: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlPSEfcz718 https://www.youtube.com/wa...

60 Authentic Frontier Recipes

I think that these apply to the frontiers of Arthedain or Cardolan as much as the Old West here in America:

A Different Fire Lay

Here is a fire lay that is a little different from the standard teepee:

Re: Tick Encounter Resource Center

That's the biggest thing I gave up by leaving the west coast. The western fence lizard. Little buggers have an enzyme in their blood that kills Lyme disease. Tick bites lizard, lizard kills disease, few hundred years pass, natural selection kicks in, and the west coast is virtually Lyme disease fre...

Re: Condor Moonshiner Knife

I have heard many good things about Condor products. I have always wanted their Hudson Bay Camp knife, it resembles Aragorn's Elven knife and I think it would fit in nicely. I had considered the Hudson Bay knife before I bought this one. It has a faux finish. I don't care for "faux". Also...

Condor Moonshiner Knife

In the woods, I think that the need and use for swords are limited--even for Rangers. I can almost hear the collective gasp. Don't get me wrong. I like them. I've trained with them for years. If mounted or in a melee, they're great. Moving around in the wilderness, not so much. Having said all that,...

Primitive Boiling Vessel

In case you don't have a metal container, you can heat rocks in your fire*, carve one of these (bigger than the model shown), fill with water and add hot rocks until the water boils: https://youtu.be/v6lRPohQLtY *Caution: Get rocks from a dry location. Sometimes, rocks from a wet location have their...

Re: Compasses in ME

I, too, have always thought that Hobbits had a 17th-18th century level of technology. Given that level of sophistication, I think they could have had compasses. However, I agree that Hobbits would have had very little use for them. Where did they go (except maybe Tooks) I also agree that Rangers mus...
