Day 10 Around the Campfire: Splicing Rope, Double Reverse Wrap, Homemade Tongs, Carrying Coals & Criss Cross Fire Magic

Today we’ll “wrap” things up around the campfire, with Kim demonstrating how to “splice” additional material into your rope so it can be as long as you want, plus how to “double reverse wrap” it to make it twice as thick. Then we’ll show you how to make and use homemade tongs – a fun easy project during this time of physical distancing. Please consider a donation if you enjoy the video lesson and would like to help keep Wolf Camp administrative staff employed through springtime.

Chris also will demonstrate how to “carry fire” with a traditional “traveling match” plus the not-patented Wolf College method of magically bringing fire back to life when it’s down to a couple coals; hint: it’s how many wildfires are accidentally started. Well end with a pinnacle song by Jack Gladstone entitled “When The Land Belonged To God.”

TEMPORARY NOTE: We need 1,000 subscribers before we can live stream via YouTube from our phone in the field so PLEASE go to https://www.youtube.com/wolfcampcollege and subscribe. Again, they have a rule that we need 1,000 subscribers in order to schedule live streams from our phone or tablet. Let’s get this done quick and ask all your family and friends to subscribe as well. THANKS!


Day 10 Around the Campfire: Splicing Rope, Double Reverse Wrap, Homemade Tongs, Carrying Coals & Criss Cross Fire Magic as part of our “You Healthy? Go Outside!” Physical Distancing Evening Broadcast – Family Friendly Music & Earth Skills Activities with Kim & Chris Chisholm, Wolf Camp and the Conservation College at Blue Skye Farm.

Tomorrow and Friday, in honor of the workshops canceled next month due to our state’s “stay at home” order, Kim will demonstrate how to make an herbal salve, and then we’ll cook up some wild edibles from the yard before opening up the weekend to other topics.

Over the weekend, join us for some ultimate physical distancing: bird adventures! Join our daily live feed on facebook starting at 6 PM Pacific, or view it when we post it to the Wolf Camp website between by 7 PM Pacific.

Announcements & Reminders:

Support your local emergency hospitals, first responders, homeless service providers and other essential care givers by finding out what kind of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) they need, then launch a neighborhood effort to round up and deliver those items.

– Going outside is the healthiest way to maintain happiness while social distancing, where virus concentrations dissipate in the fresh air and get killed by ultraviolet (UV) rays, and where the sun helps us produce Vitamin D which also keeps us happy and well. Gardening is also a great way to stay healthy, and if things get tough, one of the best ways to increase your food security.




Please consider a contribution if you benefited from this video, and help us keep Wolf Camp and the Conservation College at Blue Skye Farm going during this time when we can’t run spring workshops. We’re hoping to keep administrative staff employed in advance of the summer camp season.

Thanks, and please catch live broadcasts on the Wolf Camp facebook page or via the Wolf College youtube channel live stream if we’re within wifi range starting at 6:00 PM Pacific, or view it when we post it here at 7:00 PM, until the social distancing era end or June 14, 2020, whichever comes quickest:)
