    if you have to cut large OD logs (can't imagine WHY, tho) you can cut the 2" deep saw kerf, all the way around the tree or log, then chop out ONE side of the kerf with the shovel and cut another 2" Deep kerf. Repeat as needed. Saves half of the chopping, as vs not having a saw at all.

      if you make 3 chops or saw cuts, 120 degrees apart, around a sapling or branch, 3-4" OD, you can break it off without further sawing or chopping. 45 degree angle chopping moves cut more easily into wood than do 90 degree across the grain chops. This is expecially true of green wood. Save all of the time and calories you can out there. There's a million $ riding on your performance

        you dont want a fire in your shelter, it's too dangerous. If your shelter NEEDS a fire, it's not worth a hoot. With a properly sized, sealed, insulated shelter, you dont need a warming fire nor the sleeping bag. When you dont need to waste an hour per day for 100 days getting firewood processed so that it fits inside of your shelter. Also, knowing how to convert the 20x20 and 10x10 tarps an debris into a proper shelter and blanket, you dont need to waste picks on the axe, saw, and belt knife, or sleeping bag. The saw-edged shovel, with a variety of handles and the modified Crunch multitool are many times more useful than those 3 other items and they save you one gear pick. The Innuit did not have sleeping bags nor fires inside of their igloos. When you have a double layer of tarp and lots of debris to serve as sealed, insulated walls and bedding, your shelter will every bit as protective as the igloos ever were. You get to take and make 7 layers of clothing. You can size that clothing to all be worn at once, with debris between the layers to enhance the insulative value of the clothing. I've tested the assembly and clothing to -20F. There's no need of external heat. That covers all but the final 2 weeks of the 100 days. So you MIGHT need to heat 4 of the head-sized rocks for half an hour in front of a Siberian fire lay and have them in pits under your bedding, warming you for 4 hours, so what? T'hat's a lot less hassle than having to provide a constant warming fire for 100 days!

          You're allowed to take 5 layers of clothing for your legs, 6 pairs of wool socks, and 7 layers for your torso. Stuff debris between each pair of socks, put them into the reflective tarp booties and put your feet and lower legs into the debris-stuffed backpack, under the 12" thick debris and tarp blanket, inside of the 6" thick debris-stuffed tarp shelter, 4x4x7 ft. Remove the reflective anorak and put it around your upper legs., which are wearing the reflective tarp leggings and the breechclout. Then you'll have 7 layers of clothing around yourself, as well as 18" of compressed dry grass. You wont be losing any body heat. That means that as long as you have food with which to make metabolic heat, you'll be fine. You just have to be able to control your mind as you lay there 7 hours at a time, Then go outside for an hour or less, getting a bit of exercise, hot food, spruce-needle tea, digging up the hot coals to ignite the Swedish fire torch, use the torch to ignite the siberian fire lay, snuff the swede with ashes, so you can re-use it. Use the siberian to boil your fish and heat up your tea. Snuff the siberian with ashes, bury the coals and charcoal in the ashes, go back inside of your cocoon. The first 50 days is a lark. The last 50 days is where you earn your clear 1/2 mill $. So youre being paid a clear $10,000 per day to control your mind. Youll be sleeping for 1/3rd of that, so you'll be clearing 13k per day, Almost $1000 per hour while you're awake. That's what you focus upon and laugh as you plan what you''ll do with the money.

            whats this fixation with tv shows? do you have any practical survival skills or is it just what you see on tv.?
            I lived alone off grid for 12 years no electrical power of any kind, no running water no drains, grew my own food and shot small wild game for meat.

              I've done all those things, too. They suck, so I'm only interested in them if I can get paid, really well to do them. I want on that show. and it's an interesting subject.

                if you think that sucks now I'd hate to be you post SHTF.
                I loved every minute of my time off grid and would do it again tomorrow if I could find the right land at the right price, I'm continually looking.

                  that figures. Since for you, the right price is free. If you knew anything, you'd know that you can cache stuff and have a dugout shelter without owning the land. The whole idea is no body can know of such things except you. You can't have livestock or crops if shtf. Such things will just make you a target. Life is going to be hell on earth for EVERYONE post shtf, Only fools think otherwise. you'll get swarmed with looters, regardless of where you are. The looters will have to KEEP looting, cause they cant produce anything. So they'll get around to you in short order. You dont even have basic fighting gear/skills. Your kind never does. Such things cost too much and take too much work.
