Bushcraft solo overnight – viking flint striker, amadou, Sami leuku, chaga, a-body safe haven
Overnight on a coast in Denmark. Day one is calm. Day two is windy. I make flint and steel tinder. Open the full video description for more information.
Location: Denmark - previous viking country. Fyn - A lot of small sea and hardwood forrest. Not remote - a lot of people in Denmark so in general limited how remote it gets. A lot of birds and deer. No bears or wolves - nothing dangerous for campers. If you want to do the same in Denmark do you need to be the owner or get the owners permission.
Consuming: Water, chaga tea. Apple compote (water and wild apples, no sugar added), rye bread and butter. Tomato, onion, beans and cow cream.
Most asked questions:
1. How do you make the tinder?
Boiling amadou from the tinder fungus in 50/50 wood ashes and water for about an hour, hammering it flat and drying it. Use it only for flint and steel fire lightning.
