Hard Time Tips

To ease your ‘path’…is to KNOW HOW to make WILDERNESS LIVING Easier.  Thus :

“By Hook or Crook” was a way folks got high up tree limb deadwood.  Simple: get a long branch, Strip off all BUT THE BIG END with a “hook” branch.  All others taken off.  HOOK the “hook” over the tall branch(es) and PULL Down.  (Watch your head)

To carry out cut firewood : CUT NEARLY THROUGH one “long” log..  Shoulder carry out 3, etc. pieces at a time on  shoulders or Sled.  Break apart at home. STEP on it to break.

To fast dry wood, take a strip of bark off…or more.

Children’s cheap plastic sleds can sure help carry firewood, YEAR ROUND.

If a BIG Log: cut pulling end to a “point”.  Thus won’t “dig in” when pulling out.

BARK makes most of your CREOSOTE.  PEEL and use ONLY AS FIRE STARTER!

If firewood is across a ravine or up a hill….STRETCH A STRONG ROPE ACROSS to your “landing area”.  Cut lengths short.  Pound in U-bend “Fence nails” and SLIDE the wood across on the rope.  ALLOW ROOM to SLIDE down rope.

BE AWARE  these pieces have nails…WATCH OUT when going to landing area to collect.

A large MAGNET can help recoup your nails.

I’ve used a pet cow to pull out logs.  Made a yoke with a partially inflated car inner tube.  TAPE the AIR STEM so as to not harm animal.

Travois on dogs / horses / friendly cow / goats can be made easily.  DON’T OVERLOAD.

PUT THEM TO WORK!

In Kindling Splitting….put wood to be spit Upright into center of
an OLD TIRE.  ALL pieces, split, then stand upright and no needless “chasing” and   bending. (Faster, too).

If using a HAND SAW…use KEROSENE to occasionally wet (rag) the blade.  FAR SMOOTHER going.

Hope this is useful for someone…or FUTURE someones.  Aho?   GB    re

Readers : my wife and I are ‘spatting’…..over WATER!   She’s “gone white” on me…I’m a ‘savage’ to her (at the moment).  Buster water pipes….Frozen water source.  “I WANT MY MORNING SHOWER!!!!!”

That and this:  “and YOU want to move up to even WORSE (conditions)!”

Yes, I do.  “WORSE” will look DARN GOOD before to long.  “Savage” will look DARN GOOD soon, too.

We two are VANGUARDS…running AHEAD of the masses.  ALWAYS ‘In Front’.

This is just ‘another case’.  Aho?

Water will be the least of the problems, but one worthy of being told about (family disagreement).

THINGS LIKE THIS WILL BE THINGS YOU WILL BE FACING!

So, 3 against 1 in this house.  Sky (Grandson) ‘half n half’…so maybe more like 2 1/2 against one.  ALL over WATER “WANTS”.

Many (reading) have teens…or a mate who DONT WANT  A  N  Y  HARDSHIPS. Want the ‘sweet SOFT life’.  THIS WILL CREATE HEAVY STRIFE In Your Marriage / Etc.

Will  I   “fold”?  Nope, I intend to get as ready as I can.  ALL here will NEED what I’m striving for…..A PLACE TO LIVE.  That’s IT!!!  An ABODE to keep warm in.

Showers be Damned.  BIRD BATHS and DRINKING WATER,  THAT WILL BE A BLESSING, in time.

I will continue on the ‘path’ given…and those here will be THANKFUL I DID SO…..LATER!

SOMEONE MUST BE “SMART”.

Will it be YOU?

Well, expect “disagreements”.  DONT “Push”.  Simply grit your teeth and go on GETTING THINGS READY.

You are NOT alone!      re

“Downsizing”?  Yes, but more like STRIPPING!

(WS)

Reader(s)  :   By now you Should have the idea, that, above all, I am a Teacher.  From Spiritual growth to Physical help.

I have been ‘casting off’ people on my Email list to “sink or swim”.  Those who CLAIM “knowing God” but CONSTANTLY ‘return’ to me for their answers.  I’m using love, TOUGH love.  You may be a “sink or swim(mer)”.  ???

THIS WILL BE ESCALATING.

Sorry, but you either go to HIM, or stop.  I’ve told before that I am no “holier” then Any.  People MUST learn to stand on their own 2 feet…..or, well, just “fade away”.  You?

If I offend in this, know its for a Go(o)d reason.

Time to GROW UP, friends.

I Love you ALL….but………… Aho?

In HIM…re

(WS)

Reader(s);  Mankind is so very strange to me.  I AM a Medicine Man….despite what people think.  OF the INNER Heyoka.  That’s far different then those of Traditional.

Still, I am just that.

Our Inner go to Permanent Healing….but even that has its limits.  We 12 tell truth and the truth is :  Your Healings are totally up to you.

Basically, stay right in The Great 3-in-One, and so too will your Health.  Be it Mental to Physical.

THERE lays your health.

We 12 just work in a different way.  Aho?

I want all to understand, to toss away the Bible is to toss away all the good you are quite capable of.

Yes, man Can do “things”.  Great “things”.  But it is up to you.

Totally.

I’d like all, Bible readers or not, to know something :  The Bible, in the days it was written , had No punctuation.  None at all.  This has caused alot of problems over the centuries. Periods , Commas , Etc. placed by men to help us “better understand”.  Often it has caused MISS-Understanding of its Purity.

For instance, the TWO Words :  FAITH  and  BELIEVE(ing).

Broken INTO 2 SEPARATE Words, from ONE :  FAITHBELIEVING.

At times, BELIEVINGFAITH.

Both One Word.

Our 12 understand this and it helps US to be FAR BETTER “Doers”.

It is THAT That we use and walk in (in our “way”).

I am TEACHING YOU to be an INNER HEYOKA Medicine Man / Woman.

Our way of helping you (individually) or OTHERS (collectively).

I have told only truths, friends  (despite some “jokes”).

When it comes to HIM….I tell ALL Truth.  Aho?

Here we (all) are, healers / helpers / LOVERS.  Agape Lovers.

We can change our World to our Selves….and STAY THAT WAY.

But it’s up to you.

YOU are the “CENTER OF THE ‘UNIVERSE’ “….but embedded into the CENTER of The ALL….CreatorGod/Allah/ Etc..

I want you to know too, Your HEART “wants” MUST be NOT for SELF….but for ALL.

Self “indulgements” have NO ROOM in PURITY.  Thus be very careful of WHAT (deep down REASON(s) ) that your asking for.

HE KNOWS YOUR DEEP DEEP Reason(s) of the Asking.

Often we DON’T get our “request”….the reason is this request has a SELF REASON deep  deep down within you.

Thus it’s rejected.

HE  K  N  O  W  S   YOUR “HEART”.

You can fool YOU, but you can NEVER   EVER!….. FOOL “HIM”.

Know that.  Aho?

Before you go spending money on doctors and pills…..try this:

CHANGE YOUR BODY POSITION !

Turn with head in the OPPOSITE DIRECTION.

Say you sleep with head to the East….Put OPPOSITE.

All man is originated from EARTH MATTER…thus we TOO have “Poles”.  N / E / S / W.

OFTEN, if you are having Sleep Problems, YOU ARE in a NEGATIVE Pole sleeping position.

Give a test….Try VARIOUS “POLES”.  Aho?

Remember too our Earth is slowly shifting deep inside.  If one “pole” works, for AWHILE….it has moved, deep within.  RE-LOCATE YOUR POLE.  Aho?

Have a GOOD Sleep…forget the docs / pills…and EXPENSE.

I wish you well.   GB    re

WS asked, ’cause she has this problem:

What do you suggest for people with arthritic hips, who as a result have one side they cannot sleep on…which also happens to be the side they sleep best on?

Red Elk answered:

Drinking STINGING NETTLE tea and placing the hot HOT leaves on the spot…3 times a day. This and others on this line are in my upcoming book :  Short Stories.    re

Beautiful out.  Going to “broom off” the domes and shovel snow off porch.  14 to maybe 16 inches and still coming down.  “Brooming” is using a broom to push upward from inside.  Did this when in my TiPi.  All snows fall to base and goes up-ward.  INSULATING the whole.  FAR WARMER inside, then.  LOVE IT!

The whites kept their roof nails sticking above the shingles, to CATCH snow.  Today we put out Big Bucks to insulate the daylights in the attic.  Just another way to make someone rich.  Aho?

The common man is so STUPID (in my eyes).

My domes have old blankets over the frame (Sweat Lodge way), with tarp over those.  Snowfall is “broomed” off from INSIDE (push against the inside).  It then slides down and slowly collects all around.  Insulating the ALL.      I LOVE THE STUFF!  (Guess you can call this “Snow Berming”)

Folks, why FIGHT winter?  USE IT and be COMPATABLE with it.  Aho?

Gonna get our snowshoes out and take Sky for a Walk-About.  Get him used to these.

If any are interested, I’ve owned / used a number of styles.  I WON’T USE BUT THE “OJIBWAY” STYLE now.

FANTASTIC “All Around” design.  IVENS SNOWSHOE Co. is where I get ours (3 or 4 pairs).

Decided best to make Tire Rubber “Chaps” instead of full Mukluks.  High enough to strap above the knees.  LESS SWEAT PROBLEMS.  Aho?

Plenty of good SNOW ICE CREAM makings, right outside our door.  (  :

Also got out my Converted Water Ski.  LOVE THIS like you wouldn’t believe!  I took off the skeg and foot “step-in”.  Screwed in good metal “eyes” at top sides.  Drilled a hole at tip (pull rope) AND the BACK.

(Going downhill I walk behind it and hold it back / steer)

I load this with my winter camping gear (AND Fire Wood).  Keeping the load VERY low.  Try to go 10 inches high.  Never above 16 inches.  Use the “eyes” to crisscross rope over the load.

This sled FOLLOWS LIKE A PUPPY!

My NA Ancestors did this.  Theirs tho were often 20 ft. long.  Steam Bent the tip.  Glides behind like a breeze.  10 to 15 inch width.  THIN single board.  UNDULATE as you go along….”fitting” the contour of the land.  Aho?

Bought my ski at a ‘cheap shop’.  $5.00.  “Eyes” another $4.00.

Used a Like Ski to make a DOG SLED.  Used an old Lawn Mower Handle.  Ran Cocker Spaniels with our daughter aboard. Gave it to a ‘cheap shop’ after I got malamutes and a freight sled.  THEY SOLD IT IN 4 DAYS!  $25.00 !!!

I’ve taught a number how to make DOG HARNESSES out of old jeans.  Each leg does one dog.  This “doing” from the way the Eskimo in Greenland did, long ago.

Other then having CRAZY coast livers pass by (freeway)…Winter CAN BE FUN!

Memories are all stored in our DNA.  ALL the doings through one’s life, to death.

Creator, too, holds memories.

The difference between we and Him differ tho.

Like a “Story Quilt”, His has blank squares.  THOSE are the squares of His forgiving you your ‘wrongs’.

No recording on His ‘your’ ‘quilt’ ‘ when you’ve been forgiven.  Gone forever on your lifetime.

Sleep like a baby, KNOWING.

Getting reports of Break-Off groups of their Religion / Churches / Etc.

I’ve told this will take place.

The traditional will break into 5…and EACH of THOSE 5 “break-offs” will DIVIDE INTO 5 AS WELL.

Of EVERY ONE, only ONE will be right!
