Parker Eating Worms Remix

18 Feb

Thanks to our friend, Lisa Sieminski, for editing and remixing this video.

Now Parker eating worms is better than ever!!!

Parker knows that during our adventure we will need to find food out in the wilderness. Food for us during our adventure will include edible plants, bugs, and animals. Edible plants provide the least calories and are the easiest to find, Bugs are higher in calories, and still fairly easy to find. Animals are the smartest and therefore, the hardest to find, but will provide a lot of food if we can catch them.
Here Parker is practicing finding food. This time he found a bunch of worms and started eating them.

Jackson’s throwing sticks

16 Feb

Jackson practicing with his throwing sticks. He hits the cone 3 out of 4 times!
Native Americans would use weapons similar to these to strike small animals. If it didn’t kill the animals it would at least stun them long enough to run up and finish the job. Hopefully Jackson’s aim is right on during our adventure. It would make a real nice meal if he could hit a few squirrels or a rabbit. Better than worms!

Jackson using a flint

13 Feb

Jackson didn’t want to be outdone by his brothers!

Jackson wants to show you how to build a fire while you are in the wilderness.
A flint, some pine needles, and a little determination.
What you don’t see in this video is how he was successful.
As long as you can find dry pine needles, which even in a heavy rain a good stand of pine trees will have some areas of dry needles, you could start a fire with a flint.In the Idaho forest moss seems to grow on almost every tree, which works best for actually catching a spark from the flint. Since we are just practicing here in Boise, Jackson used some dryer lint from the clothes dryer. It works great!

Clint lighting a fire

Clint is the most successful of the boys. His fire starts right away!

Now he wants to show you how to build a fire while you are in the wilderness.
A flint, some pine needles, and a little determination.

A Bear Grylls wanna be

31 Jan

Jackson wants to be like Bear Grylls!

This video was before we started talking about actually doing our trip. When I saw how he wanted to do this sort of adventure and wanted to conquer the outdoors was when we started talking more about actually doing something like this.

This was before Christmas. On Christmas we got the boys lots of equipment that they can actually use on our adventure.
