Swedish Survival Skills

I’ve been meaning to recommend Michel Blomgren and his site for a while. Not only is he very knowledgeable about the skills that will keep you comfortably alive should you get lost while in the forest, but he’s also a talented TV presenter who is not afraid to suffer, if it means imparting some knowledge.

If you do nothing else make sure you watch Episode 1 - Five points survival.
It could save you life, it will make an overnight stay in the woods more comfortable, and if you are trying to get your kids into the outdoors the skills he demonstrates are so simple you could be teaching them to your kids by this weekend. Genius!

I have to agree with you! I found his videos a while back and have watched them all! He's good. I like his stuff. My favorite is the one where he lost his striker or other fire starter in the snow and had to find quartz to use with his knife. He even caught the drop on video and pointed it out to everyone. Nice!
Thanks SB!

I really like that bit too, it makes the point about the effects of dehydration really well.

'You can tell em and tell again, but if you show 'em right they'll tell themselves and then they'll know it'

He's a very talented presenter.
