Outdoorsman and survival expert, Bug Out Bill has posted two new blog posts on his website aimed at educating people who want to learn more about survival, whether in the woods or in times of disaster. Bug Out Bill has spent his life surviving adventures including hiking across South America, and this time he barely survived a 50ft drop and then had to wait 6 days in the desert with very little food before being rescued. He really enjoyed his adventures, even the ones that nearly killed him, and started his website to share some of his passion for survival, as well as his knowledge, with others who share his interests or simply want learn a bit more about how to cope if something disastrous happens. Bug Out Bill shares information and gear reviews, which was reported in a previous press release about his work: https://www.pressadvantage.com/story/49818-bug-out-bill-releases-more-bushcraft-gear-reviews
One of the new Bug Out Bill posts is about how to open a can without a can opener. According to Bug Out Bill, even the most organized people can sometimes need to open a can without having a can opener handy. Since the can opener wasn’t invented until almost 50 years after the can, there is a history of things other than can openers being used to open tin cans, and several possible techniques are described in this Bug Out Bill article. The first suggestion is to use a metal spoon which, run around the edge of a can, where a can opener might pinch, should eventually make a hole, which can be lifted further to remove the lid from the can. If someone needs to open a box but lacks the tools altogether, the article suggests rubbing the box on a hard, rough surface, until the top edge of the box has been “sanded down.” and the seal be broken. This method requires a lot of physical effort, but can work in a pinch if no tools are at hand. The article also explains how to open a box with various sharp objects that a person might have, such as a pocket knife or a chef’s knife, without damaging the object or injuring oneself, which is an important consideration when working. with sharp objects. In addition to this website with reviews and blog posts, Bug Out Bill has a page on Twitter at https://twitter.com/Bugout_Bill1.
Some of the posts on the Bug Out Bill website cover more in-depth topics than just opening a box. The most recent post, for example, explains how to build an underground bunker. Underground bunkers are just a type of defensive military construction where people and other valuables can be protected from falling bombs or other threats. Someone might want to build an underground bunker to protect themselves and their family from a possible nuclear apocalypse, or something as common as tornadoes and other storms. The first thing the article advises is not just to bury a shipping container to serve as a bunker. This is because shipping containers are not designed to be buried, so they may not prove particularly durable in the face of the unique pressures of being underground. Instead, Bug Out Bill advises interested bunker builders to start by obtaining the relevant construction permits and licenses from their local authorities before they start digging. It is especially important that all underground utility providers, such as water, sewer, gas and electric, inspect the location and mark the location of underground utilities. Once utilities have been identified, someone building a bunker may want to choose a location and then work out a plan for the space. The article also explains how to choose a good material for an underground bunker and how to start digging ground to build the bunker.
