Primitive Solo Adventure in the Desert

0 Просмотры
The deserts of the world are special and even magical places with wide unobstructed views of a far-stretching landscape of dry hills and rocky mountains with sparse vegetation consisting of various species of cactus and other plants specifically adapted to such a harsh environment. While the days are often warm, the nights can become very cold while the brilliant nighttime sky captivates the imagination and offers the entertainment of identifying constellations and watching for shooting stars. The silence is interrupted only by the sound of a crackling campfire or the occasional sound of a bird or other animal that is usually far away and out of sight.

Despite the apparent harshness of the desert many indigenous cultures actually thrived in such a place by fully utilizing the available resources effectively and respectfully. Primitive survival in the desert requires proper preparation and knowledge of food and water sources, fire and shelter making skills, tenacity and endurance.

This video is the complete video of this adventure including content from three recent videos and new content as well. In this video I spend three days and two nights camping and exploring a small part of the Colorado Desert in southern California. The temperature ranged from about 70˙F (21˙C) in the day to about 38˙F (3˙C) at night. I made fire using a ferro rod and a warm bed in the sand by burying hot coals, cooked a nutritious breakfast, treated a poison oak rash, hiked to a palm oasis, collected edible palm fruits, practiced shooting my primitive bow and arrows, and explored another mountain where I hid a small clay pot with pumpkin seeds in a shallow depression in a rock to test if it will still have the seeds when I return.
