The first thing should be a steel striker for fire starting. I'd suggest you might want to devise something simple yet different than normal. A design specific to your interpetation of the Tolkien universe. The second might be arrow heads, again a slightly different design then the norm. Give your c...

Water Carriers a Warning

While reviewing some sites to be included in the library I came across something important that I was researching a year ago and thought it good to warn others. Natives of Europe, Africa and the Americas at times used hollowed out gourds to carry water for use in camp and as canteens. I was going to...

Woodcraft a Ranger's Library

Please bear in mind these books and sites are in no particular order and all have some relevent material. The sites are in my favorites and are a culmination of looking into a number of topics. I was thinking of doing a critique on each, however that would delay this info for a least a month so here...

The topic of a library is too extensive for one thread so I've taken the liberty to start several threads with books and online sites. I know I will miss many books and sites and hearty welcome all additional submissions. I'm planning on breaking them up by catagory and would suggest any additions b...

This is a real nice feature.

For the few or us (or maybe just me) who are "electronically impaired", how do you add pics or an album ?

A look into some of the early explorations of North America will reveal a good many "scouting" traits for both land and waterway travel. Robert Jute a mate aboard the Halfmoon (Hendrick Hudson's ship) wrote an extensive journal on his travels including Native American foods, culture (count...

In most of Rogers raids or battles he took in well excess of 200 men judging by his losses and comments on the enemies troops.

In one of Roger's original rules he states when alone or in small numbers walk through the woods as if hunting deer. Not an exact quote but the jist of it.

Ranger Waystations

The topic of Ranger outposts or safe houses came up briefly on Andy's site and I would like to revisit it. My idea of the Ranger outpost would be a typical large log framed cabin in the woods say a maximum of 40 miles away from the nearest village/town and still a goodly distance from the border. Th...

For a VERY similar style check out The Last of the Mohicans with Danial Day Lewis. It was done a good few years earlier. I have both films and have never checked it out but I believe both scenes were probably choreograpghed by the same person. Handaxes or in this particular case tomahawks, are more ...

I don't have the dimensions yet, but the new Atrim/Fletcher/Valiant Arms model The Bristol looks like a good choice. It looks to be a relatively short stout longsword with a decent thrusting point. Anxious to see how it turns out.
