Are you wondering what is the best way to sleep in the woods? Have you been bored with the sleeping bag itself? If you have a lot of space in the car, you can take a camp bed - it will be a substitute for the comfort known from home. Another option is the hammock, so much appreciated by bushcrafters. No wonder that people who spend a lot of time in the forest choose this fantastic solution. Hammocks are light and compact, so they can be carried even in a backpack. Stand high above the cold ground and admire the stars at night - what more could you ask for?
What is the name of a fungus that looks like a burnt growth on a birch tree from afar? It is chaga mushroom, which was appreciated by indigenous peoples for its medicinal properties. As scientists have proved, there was a lot of truth in folk wisdom - it hides inotodiol and lanosterol, compounds responsible for removing damaged cells, including cancerous ones. However, we are interested in the use of chaga more than medicinal uses - as this is also the name of black mushroom growing on trees - in survival. If you want to learn how to use it in the art of survival, be sure to read the new post by Kajetan Wilczyński.
Lighting a fire at a camping or during a survival expedition is easier with the use of functional accessories. The first suggestion - obvious to us - is the flint, which allows you to set fire to wood in all conditions. It is an element of equipment that will work even in rain. Handling flint is not difficult, and beginners can choose an automatic model with intuitive operation. If you care about speed, think about gas burners that will let you start a fire in no time. It is worth having an igniter, lighter or matches - they will be useful, for example, to light gas on a tourist cooker.
Sealing windows and not going out on the lawn - is the only effective way to avoid ticks. Now for real: there are people who confirm that even 100 bites did not cause them to contract Lyme disease or tick-borne encephalitis. One of the living proofs is Kajetan Wilczyński, who in his latest article mentions methods for ticks. The most important rule is the 24-hour rule - it takes about this time for the transmission of the pathogen from ticks to humans. If you manage to get the tick out by this time, you should be fine. Although it's better not to delay.
When traveling or playing sports, it is important to stay properly hydrated. It is worth taking care of accessories that will allow you to use your favorite drink in a comfortable way. It is best to choose tourist bottles made of steel or durable plastic. Steel models are available in two versions - thermal and standard. Although thermoses are mainly associated with tea or coffee, they are perfect for summer heat, because they can be used to store frozen isotonic drinks. When camping and on a daily basis, cups will also be useful, including foldable models that can even fit in a pocket when folded.
There are tons of dangers waiting for you in the mountains. An enjoyable ridge hike can quickly turn into a life-threatening adventure. If you see signs of changing weather too late, you won't hide from the storm. Firstly, it is worth noticing the approaching element quickly, and secondly - finding shelter quickly. If there is still a long way to the shelter, you have to improvise. It's a good idea to stick to the advice that Kajetan from the Adventurer channel wrote in the latest post. This time the article is not intended to electrify the reader, but to protect him from lightning. We cordially invite you to read!
By taking loose-fitting shorts on a summer trip, you can give yourself more freedom and airflow. However, it is worth taking at least one more fitted model for a journey - it will add elegance to an evening walk around a charming town. Long pants with detachable legs are also an interesting option, as they can be easily adapted to changing weather conditions. Also remember about mosquitoes - shorts will not protect your legs as well as long cargo pants, so it's good to take at least one pair. We invite you to review interesting military models in our article!

In today's post, Kajetan Wilczyński talks about his experiences with treasure hunting. His adventure with finding gold began with his father in the Czech Republic, but also in Poland there are veins of gold. What else can you find without going abroad? It is certainly amber, because - despite the fact that the Crosscut of the Vistula Spit has failed in terms of the richness of amber - you can still find real Baltic treasures, especially after a storm. An interesting mineral is also rock crystal, found on exposed quartz mountain walls.
It is better to be ready for any eventuality. In the mountains, forest or when visiting abandoned buildings, it is good to have a handy first aid kit, which will include dressings, scissors to cut them, as well as medicines or alcohol wipes.
