Bamboo is the plant with the most diversity in nature. It’s edible, you can boil water inside of it, make tools and weapons. You can even make primitive fires (fire plow) friction fire and use it for first aid splints, crutches or walking cane. It’s nearly limitless what you can build with bamboo. I always call bamboo, ‘Mother Nature’s PVC pipe’ and building a shelter with it, you cannot go wrong.

The secret to being a good survival tactician or survivalist is never stop being a student. Seek out knowledge from many sources, combine personal experiences and surround yourself with people that know more than you do. Learn all the primitive methods and bushcraft skills, learn botany, study plants and animals. Get a good grasp and comprehension on various weapons, firearms, tools, and preparations of food, weather, power and medical inventories. Excel at map reading, traversing terrain, map making, compass bearing, dead reckoning, terrain association and identification, celestial navigation, implementation of modern technology and tools, scavenging and recycling. Take it to the next level and learn as many geological and geographical environments and how to manage risk assessment and thrive in each. After that learn how to survive in urban environments and devastated areas. Don’t stop there, then learn biology cause that will help you truly understand the building blocks of life. Physics is another area you need to educate yourself on as well as the law of physics plays a huge role of what you can and cannot do. Astronomy is also another in valuable skill that you need to learn as it will assist you on your development when traveling without a map and how the world functions mechanically. Half the time I don’t wear a watch and can still look up in the sky and tell you the time of day down to nearly the minute. I can look at tell you all cardinal directions without using a tool or compass. I can look at the night sky and tell you what time it is and what direction we face. Chemistry is another invaluable skill one needs to learn survival because with that you can create tools, to assist you with many needs simply by using raw materials. One needs to learn about treating for trauma, and how to save a life or your own. Self defense is another skill that needs to be learned and there are many forms and styles so learn as much as you can. Learn law enforcement and military tactics, how to raid a house. Learn how to recon an area or collect human intelligence on an adversary. Learn how to sail a boat, fly a plan or helicopter. All these things you learn will push you further and further in the world I exist within as a survival expert. Everyone has things they are good at and things they need to improve. Put a lot of effort towards honing skills your not good at so that you can rise above your own limits. Learn scuba and skydiving. Become an explorer but do so smartly and always being a buddy. Do risk assessments before you execute your refine plan of action. Learn how to use signal and communications, take a ham radio operators class and get your license. Remember all skills are perishable if you don’t put them to practice so get out and use these skills. You should have a library of survival books and magazines that you read. Watch videos, make your own videos and create a viable social media following or YouTube Channel. More people watch YouTube and Netflix than they do television. The cool thing is anyone can make a YouTube channel. You don’t need History Channel, NatGeo or Discovery Channel to make you famous. There are many outlets that you can gain followers, subscribers and earn income. Target your market and start out small and build as you go. Network, get to know the people out there with similar interests and you will grow naturally.
This is what I did, these are the things that I do. This is why I have had so much success in my industry as well as books, radio, television and movies. My number one goal is to save souls for Jesus, and save lives by teaching how to survive. I’ve taught everything from how to shoot, how to navigate, how to survive, how to be a prepper, the list goes on. You can do it too if this is what you want to aspire too. When it stops being fun for me only then will I stop and find something else. Stop listening to people telling you what you cannot do or shouldn’t do. Get out there and do what makes you happy, pays the bills and don’t stop until it stops being fun. The more people hate on what I do the harder I do what I enjoy doing. You only get one life so get out there and live it. Jesus loves you! Pray and ask for his love and forgiveness daily.
