    SURVIVAL SKILLS INTENSIVE with Christopher Nyerges

    from www.christophernyerges.com SURVIVAL SKILLS INTENSIVE, Saturday, March 17, 10 a.m., $51. We'll be in a higher elevation where we can make shelter, practice weaving, make fire without matches, and put together a great meal from wild plants. Switzer's Camp, Angeles National Forest, Location 3.

    This was a fantastic day learning how to do the following:

    1. Create yucca cordage
    2. Weave a net
    3. Identify some edible plants
    4. Identify good tinder plants
    5. Build a lean-to shelter
    6. Construct small animal traps with triggers
    7. Start fire without matches

    I was particularly happy to learn how to start a fire using a fire drill. The video footage below shows several people working together using just their hands to start the fire. Later, I did the same on my own, from building the hearth to using the drill and getting the fire started. Very cool.
