Primitive Survival Shelter | No Tools | Raised Platform Bed

In this video we make a primitive survival shelter that is a raised bed with no tools or cordage. The bed is approximately 4 feet off the ground and would be great for wet weather conditions. We start in a cedar thick woodland where we can utilize dead cedar trees. The trees are easy to work with because they are close together with lots of branches to stack other trees against. This type of bio-region is perfect for building bushcraft shelters. We layer the platform with loose cross sticks allowing us to sit and lay comfortably. we use hand drill friction fire to start a fire. We lay the fire on a rock layered with clay found from the creek nearby. This allows us to have a fire up on the platform bed with us. This primitive survival shelter only took one hour to complete and would be ideal for one to two nights. With a lean-to of green branches behind it it will protect us from the sun.

ATACTICAL A1 550 LED Flashlight on Amazon $19.99 at:
http://amzn.to/2pg62O2

In this fantastic product review video we cover a great product that is not only affordable but also durable and reliable. I have torture tested this flashlight by sinking it in about 5 feet of water and throwing it down an embankment and this flashlight just comes back for more punishment. With that kind of durability you can count on this flashlight to always be ready for the biggest challenges you have. You can rely on it in any environment whether it be urban or woodland. At 5″ in length and 1″ in diameter it is small and light enough to clip on any belt, bag, EMS gear or weapon. It offers 5 lighting options with low at 10 lumens with run time of 5.5 days and turbo at 550 lumens and a run time of 3.3 hours. The 5th lighting mode is an SOS option for signaling. The A1 also offers a 2600 mAh micro port rechargeable ion battery for a very convenient, long lasting and powerful power source. As you see in this video the A1 is no wimp and can sustain long periods in water. These flashlights will simply save your life and you can absolutely count on their quality. For a budget price of 19.99 on the Amazon link provided above this is a must have piece of gear for everyone in your family.
I will be using it everyday as I’m a Paramedic and will be able to rely heavily on the A1’s quality, reliability and durability while saving lives.

The Art of Primitive Survival Skills


In this collaboration video I use clips from all of our primitive skills videos found throughout our YouTube channel. These are skills that we feel are essential for survival in the wilderness. We had fun showing many of the unique skills by slowing and speeding up the film. This allows us to pack many videos and primitive survival skills into one. We have organized this video into fire, fire cooking, primitive clay pottery, firing clay pottery, primitive bushcraft shelters, primitive survival traps, primitive axes and tools. We hope you enjoy!!

Mastering the Art of Fire

This video is a collaboration of many different fire making methodes, ways of using fire as a tool and fun times we have had making fire. Fire is our nature, our most basic natural need as humans. To obtain the ability to create fire in any weather condition is paramount. We at 4DB understand this and therefore like to practice our technique and master our ability to make it anytime and anywhere. All of the clips above can be found within our many videos already on YouTube.
They are scattered within the playlist, “playing with fire.”
They showcase friction fire with bow drill, hand drill. Solar fire and fire in bad weather conditions. Thank you for watching and please subscribe to see more great videos to come. Also follow us on all of our social media links below.
