I’ve a “sister” in Holland.  Quite a gal.  DOing much in “the OLD WAY”.  Just sent pictures of some of the tools the “BEFORE” Hi Tech” took over.  One, a SCYTHE.
I’ve used these often over the years.  AFTER learning the PROPER way…these are a JOY to use.  Actually rather RELAXING.  You get into a natural “rhythm” as you go…SLICING the bases of wheat to High weeds.  Really FUN!  AND: No GAS.  No SMELL.  No NOISE…and NO running back to fill up with gas/oil mix (“weed eaters”).
I’ve the last as well….DO like ’em for “close to fence / etc.” work”.  But in an overgrown Lot, to a Field, the Scythe just CAN’T be beat ($$ wise).  I’ve gone through 4 “weed Eaters” but YET to ruin the Scythe.

There are ALOT of “Old Timey” tools you can get…NEW…simply by knowing it’s name and looking Online.  Tools that Make SENSE!  Tools that LAST!  And often NOT AS EXPENSIVE as a “Modern” type.

I’ve been “burned” too often with High Tech things…so look for a BETTER Way….and darn if that “way” has an “antique” ‘stigma’.  Some are tools in our VERY ANCIENT past.

Ever lug two 5 gal.buckets, full?  ME TOO!  Banged legs / slopped out contents…and ROUGH ON THE ARMS / HANDS / BACK.  Well, I found and bought a SHOULDER YOKE!  WOW!  What a CARRYING Difference!  I LOVE IT! (Beaverbuckets.com).
Readers, we WILL be NEEDING TO KNOW OF THESE THINGS!  It is THOSE “ancient” ways / tools WE ARE HEADED FOR!!
“Hear” me.  We are NOT “Changing”…our future IS RIGHT AROUND THE “CORNER”.   Prepare NOW…by at least KNOWING of these ways.    re

    hi brother red elk,
    I’ve been reading your blog quite alot lately, just found it about a month ago…i use to go to your other sites awhile back, but am glad i found this one. It’s been a help and you do inspire us out here who are reading. I was wondering if there are any “scout” skills/techniques that you could tell us about so we can practice, to prepare for what is coming? a few things that you could write on your blog and we out here can go off into the woods and practice…?

    thanks and Godbless,

    I’ll tell you EXACTLY what he’s told countless people (including me) over the years who ask what you are asking:

    Get Tom Brown, Jr.’s books.

    You can find them at libraries, stores, and Amazon. Tom Brown, Jr. has taught survival skills for decades to civilians and military that he learned when he was a boy from Grandfather Stalking Wolf, and he has written it ALL down in several handy books you can take into the woods with you to practice. You can also google ‘survival skills’ and get step by step instructions you can print out by other people who’ve done it, from ‘primitive’ to ‘latest gear’.
