The Amazing History Behind Your Favorite Christmas Songs

Survival in the wilderness is never easy, but survival in the wilderness when it’s frigid cold and snowing? That’s even harder. But if you’re prepared and know what you’re doing, you can live to tell about it.

On this week’s edition of Off The Grid Radio we discuss winter survival with Dave Canterbury, a survival expert and the author of several books, including The New York Times bestseller “Bushcraft 101.” Dave also teaches classes on survival and has a prominent YouTube survival channel.

Dave begins by giving us tips on everyday carry (EDC) during winter, and he then tells us:

  • How to start a fire during winter, even if it’s damp.
  • Why Vaseline-soaked cotton balls, popular in the survival community, may not be the best option.
  • Where you can find objects in the woods to burn – even if it’s been raining.
  • How a simple road flare can provide multiple survival uses.
  • Why he urges many people not to eat during survival situations.
  • How to “drink snow” without catching hypothermia.
  • Which lightweight items he carries that can provide immediate shelter.

Dave also tells us the items he believes everyone should carry in their automobile during winter. Finally, he shares with us stories from his past when he – get this – captured reptiles for a living.
