If you've spent any amount of time on YouTube watching survivalist videos, you'll know that there's a wealth of useful information to be had, and hundreds of different channels to follow.

That's why when we found the AlfieAesthetics YouTube channel, we knew we had to share it. Alfie, the host, is a survivalist from the United Kingdom. His articulate speech, considerable knowledge, and dry humor will make you want to keep watching—rather than nodding off to sleep.
Here's a 15-minute video about Alfie's bug-out bag setup, which will give you a feel for his humor and style. (Warning: most of his videos contain some not-safe-for-work language.)
Want more? We can't blame you. This 51-minute video is jam-packed with info on fungi and wild edibles. Check it out:

If you enjoy Alfie's fun and informative bushcraft videos, check out the AlfieAesthetics YouTube channel for lots more. Knowledge weighs nothing, and it's a huge aid in a survival situation, so soak up as much as you can.
