Wool Blanket Tricks

A wool blanket is a common piece of Ranger kit. I've seen a number of videos regarding the use of (unmodified) wool blankets as makeshift clothing. These two are fairly new and I like them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=juconMkZh8U --Basic, Twin size blanket. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9tlhB...

Not a Kuksa, but quicker to make and still pretty cool:

Re: How the Early Pioneers Preserved Food and What They Ate

Neat! It is amazing how much doing this stuff helps you appreciate what a "real" denizen of Middle Earth (to say nothing of our own ancestors) went through just in daily life. I've had a "insights from the farm for a Ranger impression" post sitting unfinished on my computer sinc...

How the Early Pioneers Preserved Food and What They Ate

This is from Pioneer-era America. But I think it translates well to ME since the level of (human) technology is similar:

Re: Period way to carry honey?

To be fair, a lot of that processed, translucent-looking "honey" you find in supermarkets isn't even technically honey. Caveat emptor. Very true! Some of it is corn syrup, which I don't think Tolkien ever mentioned :mrgreen: Well said! Don't waste your time with that stuff. Buy Raw Organi...

Re: Happy New Year: 2016 New Skill Challenge- anyone wanna p

I do own the first tomahawk book. I've had it for several years, and have trained with it off and on. I really like the way it is laid out, and would love to get the second one someday. Brian The second book builds on 2 weapon fighting, throwing, etc. It has a short (but interesting) chapter on how...

Re: Happy New Year: 2016 New Skill Challenge- anyone wanna p

What a great idea! I think I'll have to jump on board as well. WMA/NMA: I have two things in this area. First will be fitting some weapons training into my morning workout. I always carry a tomahawk with me in the field as well as a long knife, so that is what I will be training with. I would love ...

Re: Woodland Skin Salve: Herbalism Experiment 2.0

I am surprised that you didn't look at honey. It is definitely NW Middle Earth appropriate. By itself, honey is an outstanding treatment for burns and wounds. It is anti-bacterial/anti-septic, will keep the wound moist while healing and mixes with the liquids from the wound itself to form natural hy...
