that is cool.were they out twenty years ago?....
....wouldn't want to have to walk through snow barefooted more then a couple minutes.
Cody LundinI doubt it, they are a recent fad. No toe jam after a long walk.
There is survival show on cable called Duel Survival, or something like that. One of the guys goes barefoot all the time; snow, desert, rocks, whatever.
Lundin lives in a self designed, off-the-grid solar earth home in the high-desert wilderness of Northern Arizona. There, he catches rain, composts waste and pays nothing for heating and cooling. He has been going barefoot for more than 20 years, part of his indigenous self-reliant philosophy.
Cody and Dave rock! Dave is a redneck hillbilly and Cody is a bug eatin bush hippie.they go very well together
I"m actually a composite of the two.I'm more of a Barefooted Bush Hillbilly
Haven't worn real shoes since I went off on visibility
Was born a few years late for the hippie scene.Do remember it as a little kid though.With my WV /KY DNA probably have more hillbilly then the hippie in me
Cody and Dave both do rock though!
Al, have you ever seen the documentary 'Alone in the Wilderness' about Dick Proenneke? If not you have to look out for it, usually shows on PBS.
This man does have some good skills,very good with his hands.He is practicing more pioneer skills then what I'm speaking of.I'm talking of stone age skills so to speak.No steel.All of his tools come in real handy and if I were in a real survival situation I'd be glad to have any of em but in the wilderness you may find yourself without gun,auger or axe,no steel at all,then what?Those spoons can me made through coal burning though even more work and time.The logs could be shaped with a stone axe and or burning,even more time and work.It's better to have the tools but just as imortant to know what to do without them.I am going to look into this guys video though.I'd use the gun till I had a good bow and arrow set.then keep the gun for backup till i ran out of ammo,then maybe use the barrel for a blow gun or who knows what
