Reconnaissance is frequently taught to members of Reconnaissance is frequently taught to members of the military and law enforcement, but the general public is rarely afforded glimpses into this valuable skill set, short of perusing books and field manuals on the topic. U.S. Army FM 3-98 Reconnaissance and Security Operations is a good place to start reading and can be found in PDF format online. However, its tone is dry and academic, and many of the techniques within only apply to established military infrastructure. Most importantly, reading about a subject is never quite as effective as experiencing it firsthand — we wanted to get out into the wilderness and test ourselves.

A little cold weather survival tip. Properly trapping in heat within a shelter can increase temperature substantially. It is also important to note that maintaining a proper distance between the fire and plant material is necessary to prevent shelter fires. Eventually fire will dry out plant material making it susceptible to combustion. A retaining wall is a great way to keep heat within a shelter.

Matthew Little’s time in Army Special Forces honed his understanding of shooting as an athletic skill. “It wasn’t until many years later, when I started competing in shooting sports, that I started to understand what good actually was, and found my skill level increasing exponentially. The reason for my “leveling up” after so many years was that I was now training my shooting less like a soldier and more like an athlete.”

Item: TENTSILE STINGRAY 3-PERSON TREE TENT // CARGO CAPACITY: 880 pounds // MSRP: $699 // Camping in cold conditions means getting your body off the chilly ground as much as possible with a sleeping bag and a pad. But with the Stingray, you can get several feet between you and the ground. This innovative tent is designed to get you elevated using three anchor points — not just so you can sleep in a portable treehouse, but also to stay protected from insects and critters, as well as wet, lumpy, or frozen ground conditions. It has a unique tensioned anti-roll strap system that prevents you from rolling to the middle or the heaviest side. It also comes with a waterproof rain fly, three side doors, a central hatch, and plenty of mesh pockets to store personal items.

OFFGRID staff will be attending this webinar hosted by @edsmanifesto this Saturday. Check it out! Repost @edsmanifesto “Previously offered to close protection personnel, this course explores the survival mindset and disruptive problem-solving applied to a modern urban environment.

Intended for anyone who travels, this course explores the basics of social engineering, pattern recognition and exploitation, as well as human asset development - including navigating foreign social constructs on the fly.

Students should walk away with some insight into urban environments both domestic and abroad, initial exposure to the skills of relationship building, and a basic understanding of how criminal elements exploit common behavioral patterns in order to anticipate, identify and counter possible threats.

This half-day course, running Saturday, Dec 12 from 9:00AM - 12:30PM PST, will be offered in webinar format, and will include time for Q&A. This course includes an e-mailed extra.”

Tear one square of the toilet paper into two roughly equal pieces. Take two of the matches and hold them side by side, pinching one end of the piece of toilet paper between them. Tightly roll the toilet paper around the matches. Then, dip the whole works into the melted wax. Place it on foil or wax paper to cool, then dip the other end, completely sealing the matches in wax. Let it cool and harden.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To use, gently scrape or rub the wax from the heads of the matches, then strike the matches as normal. As the matches burn, they’ll ignite the wax and toilet paper. One of these fire-starters will burn for several minutes, easily igniting your tinder and getting your fire going.

You can store these in Altoids Tins and throw them in your rucksack for quick fire-starting. “4 DIY Survival Uses for Altoids Tins”, article linked in our bio @recoiloffgridmagazine.

The EDC of Kerry Davis @darkangelmedical:

-SIG SAUER P365
-ANR DESIGN APPENDIX HOLSTER WITH CLAW AND ANR DESIGN MAG POUCH
-DARK ANGEL MEDICAL ANKLE MEDICAL KIT
-SUREFIRE AVIATOR FLASHLIGHT
-BENCHMADE 917SBK TACTICAL TRIAGE KNIFE


Affectionately known as “Pocket Doc” to those closest to him, Davis is a humble, quiet professional who lives and breathes what he teaches, referring to himself as “just a nurse.” Dig a little deeper and you’ll find that this Air Force vet has more than 29 years of medical experience as a military flight medic, paramedic, and ER nurse. In addition to running Dark Angel Medical, Davis is also an adjunct instructor at SIG Sauer Academy. He has dedicated his adulthood to the preservation of life and hopes that through Dark Angel Medical, he can train the masses to be positively reactive instead of being as useful as a steering wheel on a mule.
