Missing Persons.

MANY… Missing Persons it seems indeed,.. in deed and in fact…  too.

Oft reported in/over all Media Forms and so on (click).

 

This Topic is one of the rather disquieting sort.

My,.. Shiro’s brow… furrows deep.

WHERE.?.

 

 

WHY.?.

 

An obvious need emerges for…

BUSH SURVIVAL SECRETS.

…THE TOP 9.

… of Shiro’s… herein.

Conspiracy Theories aside… (click)…

 

Missing Person’s…and:

Later investigations solve some and a form of peace at least presented to the Family and left behinds and interested parties.

But some… are still Missing it seems.

 

When some… turns into MANY… unanswered questions only remain.

Including…???… missing… or taken.?.

 

Survival within Nature’s embrace involves consideration of many factors.

The Research herein indicates external factors have affected… effects.

 

Many people go Missing yearly.

 

(Music Link)

 

Oft and consistently i, Shiro… go missing… purposely.

Taken… by choice and whimsy,.. not others intent (click).

The NATURE QUEST has long been a Mainstay in many Traditional Practices such as NINPO and SHAMANISM.

 

I “…go bush ” (click);..

… lost and missing in Nature as a personal experience.

(…The Bush,.. an OZ nick-name for NATURE’S LANDSCAPES.)

 

Survival Skills tested, examined and re-examined.

My choice. Totally.

 

NATURAL LANDSCAPES BECKON TO MANY A SOUL. NIKKO IN JAPAN… DID SO TO Shiro. THE LEGENDS. THE TEMPLE. THE RAIN. THE BRIDGE. THE FESTIVAL … too. HEREIN.

 

IF ONLY… NATURE…

…COULD TALK…and…

…Shiro could fly… too.

 

The Wilderness or The Bush.. by it’s very Nature/NATURE… is semi-isolated areas.

Areas of Concern it seems indeed (click).

A need to balance use and preservation.

The dangers obvious for those who look.

 

 

The desire and thrill to seek out such adventures requires immediate tempering with risk and hazard assessment.

MOST newcomers… the most at risk.

The largest Bird in Australia is the EMU.

A Bird… that cannot fly.

 

A very quick Runner though… indeed,.. in deed and in fact… too (click).

A top speed between 50-75 kph.

 

USAIN BOLT btw… bolts along at about…  35 kph… (click).

Shiro… a lil’ slower.

 

This i found out quite early in my explorations.

The noise reverberated down into the gully where i walked.

A boom.?. of sorts.?.

 

I froze as it was a sound i knew not.

Crouching down now… angled my view up the sloped ground ahead.

A small series of movements could be just seen.

Wildlife it seemed.

 

EMU… emus actually.

 

More booms and grunts as i cautiously approached… bad idea.

 

Two figures jumped into the air,.. almost simultaneously (click).

Legs splayed, 3-toed clawed feet thrust out towards the other.

 

Males… deciding Territory.

RUN… Shiro run… climb… too.

The dispute ended quickly as a claw found it’s target.

 

The one affected fell awkwardly and on rising… ran away… fast.

…TOWARDS ME…???… and kept going… past.

 

Relief Breath… given… and taken.

 

The winner per se followed slowly ensuring the loser kept moving.

Till… it spotted me that is.

…Relief time… over.

 

Still some 50 mtrs away… i, Shiro,.. decided to run…

…away as well.

Bolting… down the hill.

 

Fast as lil’ legs could go…

 

photocredit/thanks:runningcompetitor

 

…wishing i had Wings… that worked…

…unlike the EMUs that is.

 

I could hear it nearing as i ran… towards trees and cover.

The EMU was fast,.. very FRICKEN fast… compared to me.

 

Probably… 3-4 TIMES FASTER.

 

As the gorge ground bottomed and flattened out… it caught up.

Making noises of boom like grunts as it came.

 

Thankfully… a Tree… also intervened… on my behalf.

Well… Trees,.. actually.

 

I had picked the spot as i moved.

Several Trees in a lil’ grouping.

Climb one and get above the jump height was the plan.

 

 

But first… a game of ring-a-ring-a-rosey…

…round and round the Trees (click)… we went.

EMU… and me.

 

As we did so i kept my walking-stick thrust out…

…hopefully to look bigger and so forth.

My back-pack… strapped well and fairly tight was no hindrance…

…and offered some rear protection… too.

 

Whenever and wherever a gap appeared the EMU pecked.

Usually meeting… Stick.

 

A STICK… To SMASH a Sword. Herein. The Legends. The Swordsman. Wood… too.

 

A final block met neck/head side on with good force.

Using the EMU’s recovery as distraction…

…and a pole-climb Technique learnt long ago with S. ED LOMAX (click).

 

The pic below is of the right theme and result,..

…safeish, nestled in Nature… looking at the EMU…

grunting and booming below.

 

Then finally moving off… too.

OUTDOOR SURVIVAL SKILLS…

 

The set of OUTDOOR SURVIVAL SKILLS necessary to handle any Emergency is one only garnered by experience and doing.

Life in the Wild has no reset button indeed.

Nature talks in a Language that can take a Life-time to come to grips with.

 

The following set of 9 Survival Tips will ensure you are listening…

…at least a lil’ i hope.

 

(Music Link)

 

 

Shiro’s SET OF 9

SURVIVAL SECRETS.

 

1. TELL THE WORLD.

 

Well…

…YOUR WORLD anyway.

Unless you have compelling reasons not to… …tell someone.

 

GAIN AND Give as much Info/Intel as you can and sort out an Emergency Plan/Timetable… if you… go walkabouts per se.

PLAN Prior… Using the following Tips as Outlines.

 

 

2. EAT AND DRINK… LOTS.

 

A LOVE OF MEDITATION… OR MADNESS IN HER METHOD INDEED. AMONGST FRIENDS AND FELLOW MADMEN. THE THEORY. Herein.

 

Keep up the food and drink.

Much Energy required. Rest lots… too.

Malnutrition and Dehydration affect your Mental processes as well as the Physical effects.

 

Stay with Hope,.. avoiding Frustration… (click)

…and Tragedy.

 

2-3 days without Water is the max.

Serious issues en-route.

Drinking your own Urine…no more than twice… will add another day perhaps (click).

 

 

Stay near fresh-water whenever possible, boil if req.

Be aware and considerate of Local Wild-life… who may also frequent the area.

Escape and Emergency Routes should follow Water-courses down-hill.

 

Take portable Water Purifying devices/tablets (click).

Learn to Devise Rain, Dew and Moisture catchers/drippers (click).

 

The Top Cupboard Condiments. Herein. The Slide-show.

 

Be prepared to eat… anything.

Kill only to Survive.

 

Worms, Bugs and Insects, Reptiles, peculiar Plants etc.

Trapping, Snaring and Fishing basics an asset here (click).

Small/lightweight Locale Reference books will also help much here.

Gain Knowledge of the Locale’s Wild Berries and Fruits/Plants.

 

3. BASIC FIRST AID…

…AND NATURE’S HELPERS THEREIN.

(click).

Learn Basic First Aid… and/or more.

 

(Video Link)

 

…KNOW THE LOCAL WILD-LIFE… BUT… NOT TOO CLOSE… TO SOME INDEED IT SEEMS.

 

4. PACK MULTI-PURPOSE ITEMS PREFERENTIALLY.

 

AS WITH SUCH POCKET-KNIVES… DUCT TAPE IS A ASSET… FOR ANY… TOOL. HEREIN. THE LEGENDS. THE MOTHER. THE PRESIDENT. THE TAPE. Shiro STYLE INDEED.

 

Wherever possible… Multi-use Items/Tools get priority.

Learn how they work, what they can do and how to repair/maintain them… and do so etc.

Such as the above,.. a prime example.

 

Also:.. When out Bush… throw nothing away unless it rots or carrying is not an option.

NOTHING.

 

All things may have a use… even just Emergency fuel for fire etc.

Plus stops littering.

 

If it rots… bury preferably,.. to avoid smell and predators.

Bury well the camp/fire remains,.. upon moving on… too.

 

SURVIVAL GEAR.

 

A decent pocket Knife or such Multi-tool should be on your person… AT ALL TIMES.

Learn to adapt it’s uses… and to maintain,.. oil if req. etc and sharpen and so forth.

 

When buying such and whenever can… buy Pouches for the implement… in addition to basic implement protection many such have extra tabs, pockets, places and loops to attach other tools or hold a loop of rope/string/bow-string or carry a small sharpening stone or bundle of rod/spikes in etc.

Also prefer those with key-ring type attachments… to hang securely off Belt or Back-Pack… too.

 

(Video Link)

 

A light-weight Plastic PONCHO for Winter Protection can double as a Water Catcher Sheet in Summer… and ground cover material anytime… under your bedding or to eat off… or as a wrapping material.

 

I make a smallish bundle… wrapping inside such as the following,..

…which is kept dry etc:.. like wrapping a pressie by lining;

(…Netting/Poncho/Newspaper/Tea-towel…)

 

Into the Tea-towel…

Fine Grass Tinder clumps, Steel Wool, Cotton Wool, Water-proof Matches, Lighters, Roll of Duct Tape (click) and a small bundle of Metal rods/spikes about 6in. long bound by several Rubber Bands.

A Fishing Hand-Reel and line.

Small pack clothes-pegs.

Several Corks holding Needles, Fish hooks and weights/lures.

A spare Bow-string and small length metal garrotte Chain with finger-rings which allows one to use the implement as a Saw that can go in/for awkward places/small circum. sticks etc… also.

A spare Locale Map included… pencil… too.

 

Wrap Tea-towel in Newspaper… Newspaper in Poncho…

…and so forth… finally,.. in the Netting.

Makes a brick-size light-weight pack of many implements. Can be (net) slung or tied or packed as is.

 

Newspaper… spare reading material/wrap… or tinder… as well.

Teatowel… multi-uses.

Netting… fishing, trapping, multi-uses, carry-bag sling etc.

 

Steel Wool btw… cleans Pots, Pans and Tools… whilst in an Emergency,.. can also be used as Tinder.

 

 

5. NATURE NAVIGATE SKILLS AND WEATHER READING.

 

Basic Map reading and associated Compass and Navigation skills required (click).

Try the ages of Yore style;.. as below,.. read the Stars-way.

 

(Video Link)

 

Understand the Basics of Natural Weather Reading and Signs thereof (click)…

…in particular,.. relative to the Site/Locale you travel through/on.

 

 

6. BE CALM… AND FLEXIBLY ADAPTIVE.

 

 

Your Survival… is an attitude per se.

Stay focused calmly on the positive… no matter how small.

Keep it real… too.

 

Do not be rushed unless the situation demands it.

Assess and monitor your Physical AND Mental States. Adjust Plan as/if req’d.

 

Stay organised. Know your limits.

Be flexible and adaptive. Observe and use the surroundings wherever can to aid and protect you.

 

If you have not performed any Night Training prior,.. the disorientation effect and lack of visual acuity may be less than welcome… and more emphasised.

Many Locales may also have a different set of Predators at night.

Camp overnight, get rest and recheck your Bearings in good light etc.

 

DO NOT WANDER AROUND AIMLESSLY.

Waste of Energy and Rest-time and so forth.

 

Those who enjoy the Night… keep going.

The temperature is usually cooler… which may translate to more ground covered.

Keep the Focus.

Predators. Ill-intent Humans…

…low-light visibility etc to adjust to as well as using Night Navigation Methods applicable etc.

Stay hydrated.

 

If you understand the Term; “… The Observer…” in you… is to be used in the above Tip(s).

As if you are… “…Your Doctor…”  attitude here.

 

E.g. DO WHATS… “…BEST FOR YOU…“… not a patch-up job per se.

Tis YOUR Survival after ALL.

 

 

7. LEARN AND DEVISE SOS TYPES…

 

Survival may indeed depend upon a Rescue.

The… “…deserted Island…” scenario.

 

Clear a wide swathe of Land as best can… or use the Beach… if applicable.

Construct a HUGE… “…HELP… or… S.O.S….” signage.

Shiny and reflective if can… use metal, mirror glass, blanket, paper, alfoil, white/light colored clothes and rags, large light colored Leaves etc…

 

Dependent on Landscape… Go for contrast to attract if reqd.,..

…dark STONES/ROCKS on light Ground-cover etc.

 

For those with a… flare for FIRE… set up a HUGE BON-FIRE PIT Type… just like the Movies.

 

If you have… a FLARE…USE IT WHEN TIME.

DO NOT AIM AT THE RESCUE PARTY PLEASE.

 

THUS;..

…Rescued… and Survived.

 

JAPAN… IN THE 1580’s… THE IGA WARS. THE SHINOBI. THE 3000. THE SAMURAI. THE 40,000. THE BATTLES. THE SLIDE-SHOW. HEREIN THE LEGENDS… too. Shiro STYLE INDEED.

 

8. GAIN AND TAKE COVER.

 

When Sleep and/or Rest reqd.;

Be a lil’ inventive… may help here.

 

Caves, Ledges/Overhangs, Lean-to’s, Tee-pee Style, Underground, In the Ground, Up Trees, Hammock Style, On the Ground etc.

Be discerning on where… NOT NEAR a filling River in Winter for example…

…less you have a Boat handy… too.

 

Each of the above Shelters has Benefits… and weak-points.

Dependent on Locale… insect or warmth may be priorities.

 

Predators perhaps… too.

Clear the area of local critters with noise, fire etc. as req’d.

Air-flow…and camp-fire smoke flow considerations may apply also.

 

Blankets can be Clothes, Large Leaves and other such soft and pliant Plant Material for bedding.

 

 

AN ANCIENT WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION… WAS KEPT SECRET BY THE ANCIENT GREEKS. THE HEAT AND WARMTH OF GREEK FIRE. THE LEGEND. HEREIN. Shiro STYLE IT SEEMS. UNZIPPED INDEED.

 

9. LEARN TO… START FIRES…

 

…FOR SAFETY and SURVIVAL THAT IS.

NO FIREBUGS NEED APPLY,..

 

…THOUGH FIRE… STOPS A BUG… DEAD INDEED.

Most Wild-life will avoid a fiery approach… also.

 

Helps cook dinners and acts as night warmers and lights,.. a Rescue Beacon… too.

 

…PSSST… WANNA SEE HOW… WE… SET THIS TOWN ON FIRE… IN 1962… THE YEAR OF Shiro;s BIRTH BTW… THE TOWN… STILL BURNS… Shiro… too… STILL… WRITES. HEREIN. THE LEGEND OF CENTRALIA BURNS…

 

Several workable FIRE-STARTER Methods exist and can be found online under SURVIVAL Type Sites.

I keep several pairs of generic reading glasses with magnification 2.5-3x… makes Map Reading and Needle Repair work etc a lil’ easier… to see…

…and in an Emergency… use the Lens and OUR SUN.

 

Thanks to a Modern OZ Invention… there is ONE TOOL… to easily do this job.

Referred to as the “…AUSSIE SURVIVAL TOOL…” (click).

 

Fire-Starter Kit/Tool. photocredit/thanks:armyandoutdoors

 

A combo of WOOD, MAGNESIUM ROD, FLINT ROD AND CARBON STRIKER.

 

The STRIKER shaves the WOOD and MAGNESIUM for tinder.

STRIKER on FLINT… provides the sparky flames.

 

In addition to the above warming considerations,.. the Device has several applicable RESCUE aids.

At night… the FLINT SPARK can be seen some 2-3 kms…

…if line of sight and conditions suitable.

 

photocredit/thanks:ultimatesurvivalgear

 

As a Torch or light… just hold over area and strike as req’d.

The Striker can reflect sunlight during the day… into the Rescuers eyes if attention needs to be grabbed… like a mirror.

 

Lastly and importantly… getting the Device WET… means lil’ indeed…

…in deed and in fact… too.

 

The WOOD IS NATURALLY VERY OILY ( …THUS WATER RESISTANT…),..

…AND…

…MAGNESIUM WILL STILL BURN it seems… wet or dry.

 

Hot as indeed.

…LIL WINDY OUT TODAY MA… gifcredit/thanks:gifco

 

The Australian WINTER  just gone, seemed/seems to linger  a little longer than usual.Though technically now some 2-3 weeks into SPRING; the last week saw some still heavy rains and windy days prevailing.

Even today (sept.21)-a very mild day, slightly cool and overcast…

with possible showers…(update=light showers whilst i type…).

 

Admittedly, when the SUN was/is out…it is SHINY.

 

 

TIME FOR A SUMMARY OF SHIRO’s 9 WINTER SURVIVAL TIPS.

Take an  idreamofninja Journey with SHIRO

not to learn how to ‘walk like an egyptian,’…

 

but rather, how to SLEEP LIKE PHARAOH

and DREAM LIKE SHIRO

(no mummification involved, SHIRO promises).

 

photocredit/thanks:albatrosszim

 

Above is PHARAOH TUTANKHAMUN’s BED

made entirely of GOLD and EBONY WOOD.

btw the bed DOES NOT feature a HEADBOARD

IT IS A FOOTBOARD.

 

The PHARAOH was inclined to SLEEP ON AN INCLINE!

 

WINTER NINJA SURVIVOR.

 

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN LEGENDS CROSS SWORDS…

 

During the research and writing up of SHIRO’s last post (click) on SURVIVAL

purely as a ‘mental exercise‘ to maintain motivation and focus;

occasional notes were taken when SURVIVAL related TIPS were being utilised.

Listed below, THE NINE SURVIVAL TIPS in no particular order.

The listing contains some diversity though the intent is very apparent.

 

photocredit/thanks:satiiiva

 

Basic WINTER  HEALTH uppers, boosting immunity, metabolism, resistance etc.

INCREASING SURVIVAL…and keeping SHIRO warm too.

The listing below shows there are many approaches to good health involving more than just medicine.Several simple ways to support a lifestyle that are not overly costly and require little adjustment to your routine approach to good health

 

though you may want to adjust your bed-

BE LIKE PHARAOH!

 

NEWSFLASH…READ THE NEWS… photocredit/thanks:inclinedbedtherapy

THE  NINE .

 

  1. PHARAOH’s INCLINE  BED.
  2. PEEKING THRU PINHOLES.
  3. HERBAL HAND, MOUTH & SOCKFULS TOO.
  4. TIME TO SWISH OIL & BRUSH MY TEETH TONGUE.
  5. TWO HANDS BETTER THAN ONE.
  6. WINTER WARMERS.
  7. TAI CHI?…NO…SHIRO DOES NIN CHI.
  8. HOT DRINKS,COLD DINNERS.
  9. SILVER’s SILVER LINING.

 

SILVER’s SILVER LINING.

 

SILVER ORE                                       GOLD ORE

 

BURNS  are often horrific injuries.

The body trauma requires much time to heal and the problematical nature of bandages on open healing flesh is known to all.

With the added impregnation of forms of SILVER into modern bandage types many such issues have been all but eliminated. (click)

SILVER IS A TOTAL BACTERIA INFECTION AGENT-

and appears in it’s COLLOIDAL STATE to be healthy to us inside and out whilst deadly to such intrusions/complications.

If used wisely that is…

 

…YOU LOOKA ‘LIL…BLUE. photocredit/thanks:guiltyfix

 

The MAN in the photo above is REAL

is NOT A LIVING SMURF

however is showing ALL THE SIGNS OF…A DRUG OVERDOSE…

(a type of)  SILVER BEING HIS DRUG OF CHOICE…

YES YOU TOO CAN BECOME A SMURF

 

photocredit/thanks:chillkey

 

by being quite unwise and-

JUST KEEP INGESTING LARGE AMOUNTS OF  (a…) SILVER

 

(THE LEGEND OF THE TERM BLUEBLOOD FOR EXAMPLE (click) includes references DUE also/in part, to such as THE PRODIGIOUS USE OF SILVER CUTLERY BY THE SO CALLED ENNOBLED ELITE OF THAT HISTORICAL PERIOD…may have brought about mild SILVER OD symptoms…

ennobled they may have been though their wisdom has oft.been called into ?).

???…makes SHIRO wonder about…BLUEBEARD for example???

 

 

however…SILVER IN A PROPERLY BALANCED AND FORMULATED COLLOIDAL STATE DOES NOT,

CAN NOT AND WILL NOT CAUSE THIS…

 

THE SMURF MAN (PAUL KARASON) POISONED HIMSELF WITH AN IONIC SILVER CHLORIDE SOLUTION…

MADE BY…HIMSELF…CAUSING ARGYRIA…(click)

 

APPARENTLY…HE EVEN PAINTED HIMSELF WITH THIS HOMEMADE GOO…

AS A MATTER OF INTEREST

he died aged 62…heart attack,pneumonia complications etc.

 

photocredit/thanks:guiltyfix

 

The SURVIVAL TIP CONCEPT for COLLOIDAL SILVER is of its usage as an all-round purifier and health stimulant in appropriately small doses to suit the occasion (click) (click)

Consider it as a medicine NOT a cordial or skin color adaptor.Always consult your health expert regarding such medicinal additions even if natural/herbal etc-could be allergies or contraindication issues with other medicine etc so as to understand its proper place in your health SURVIVAL routine.

 

Feeling the BLUES is ok-you’ll get over it…

coloring yourself blue…not so much…

NO NEED TO BE LIKE PAUL K.-

nor do you need to be blueblooded!

 

NO SMURFIN AROUND WITH YOUR HEALTH SAYS SHIRO.

 

 

COLLOIDAL SILVER can be fairly easy to obtain-some health shops/online stock such.

($$$ Cost wise, probably the most expensive on the list of 9,

though a little goes a long way).

 

HOT DRINKS COLD DINNERS.

The fast warming action of hot drinks during WINTER is always much appreciated and a definite SURVIVAL TIP.

 

 

Quickly absorbed and digested, liquid warmth can often delay/halt the chills.Anytime.

Such drinks as thin soups, herbal teas, hot chocolate and mulled wines, alcohol shots etc are used by many cultures and traditions (click). A large variety to satisfy every one shivering,wet and miserable.

 

A variation of such choices can be found for any age and taste.

($$$Cost wise=wide range/small outlay per serve…stove/kettle).

 

For those who have to venture out or work in/through such

winter conditions,  a thermos can be a lifesaver too.

 

photocredit/thanks:hdqwalls

 

 

Now…considering the above obvious benefits of warmth

why cold dinners???

Shiro noticed several factors which impact in non-direct ways.

 

(firstly decide…IF your goal/routine is to put on weight prior/during WINTER so bodily fat% will be used to extract energy over the WINTERIGNORE the following…SIMPLY

EAT LOTS…GET COLD…SHIVER…LOSE WEIGHT THRU FAT BURNING PER NORM ETC)

 

However…if you wish to maintain your weight or even lessen it…eat COLD DINNERS.

 

 

METABOLISM is increased due to the fact that your stomach WARMS UP THE FOOD (slightly)…

so as to ease digestion and energy extraction…

using MORE calories to do so than per norm/warm food

 

Either way will work, though increasing METABOLISM even further with some very simple dietary additions will be further explained below. (HERBAL HANDFULS…)

($$$Cost wise=…ingredients and stove/fridge etc)

 

 

…a COLD DINNER plate may look like this above…

 

 

not this COLD THOUGH!

 

Another idea to give a BOOST to your METABOLISM in the short term…

is to FAST for a day.($$$Cost wise=drinks only)

 

The next meal you have will be energy extracted rather quickly.

 

Just ensure YOU DO NOT OVEREAT AT THIS

(FIRST)BREAK (the) FAST MEAL…a

small portion restart minimises digestive time and load-

at the same time if you continue the practice of getting your body used to smaller portions…

less weight gain to be of concern.

 

Upping your METABOLISM requires more frequent, more smaller MEALS. ($$$Cost wise=same/slightly less usual shopping bill).

TAI CHI?
NO…SHIRO DOES NIN CHI.

WINTER NINJA TRAINING though sometimes moved indoors reveals some subtle tweaks that can easily be applied to

any physical activity or exercise routine.

 

The overall CONCEPT=longer, slower, stretchy training.

Training;  ninja or otherwise involves stressing the body and the WINTER COLD can seriously impede body movement flow.Previous injuries can also stiffen up, compounding the issue.

GOTTA KEEP WARM

 

 

 

 

TAICHI or YOGA type movements are ideal for such SURVIVAL.The long stretchy moves keep body warmth flowing rather than the fiery outbursts of intense activity.Same with any stretching routine…quality rather than quantity.

YOU WANT TO STAY WARM

NOT BURN OUT AND THEN GET CHILLED or CHI(ki)LLED.

 

 

SHIRO, for example has found many MARTIAL ART forms/exercises can be simply slowed down to reproduce the effect.Simply by keeping the body flowing through such-

no force, just body weight movement itself.

Or as the LEGEND BRUCE LEE SAID…’ BE LIKE WATER ‘…=flow…

 

Experiment with your fitness routine to find what suits the occasional chill.

A slow dance to bring back warmth into LIFE.

 

By slowly extending the session time to offset the chill factor…

you are also acclimatising.

($$$Cost wise=a lil extra time, health benefits)

 

SHIRO does…NIN CHI

and you?…what type of CHI do you do?

 

WINTER WARMERS.

Another of the obvious WINTER survival tips is extra clothing.

Many choices here to suit all occasions.

 

JUMPERS, JACKETS, GLOVES, BEANIES/HATS, LONG JOHNS, THERMALS, EXTRA BLANKETS and so on.

SHIRO has included it into the SURVIVAL listing as a TIP

so you are NOToverdone/overcooked‘!

 

 

Whilst training, the extra clothes can be too much warmth.

Particularly with THERMALS.

 

When WINTER Mountain climbing/trekking etc for example LONGJOHNS are useful…

however…

 

when intense activity training

the extra heat generated will soon have you peeling them off…

which can be problematical in itself…

depends on where you are!

 

SHIRO’s suggestion for training is to layer up but only lightly more than usual…

skivvy top and tshirt etc…($$$Cost wise=small extra outlay per item).

 

one other SURVIVAL TIP for a training clothing piece that functions efficiently is- LEGWARMERS.

YES you read it right…(sorry…for some reason…SHIRO would not sit still for the next pic…but this Babe said yep…well…said ga gooood…i think…close enough).

 

photocredit/thanks:pinterest

 

ninja students wear leg warmers

 

cos in WINTER JAPANCOTTON GI just don’t warm up

longjohns too warm

legwarmers=just right-

 

( and you can take them off practically anywhere without

raising eyebrows or the local constabulary

if and when they have raised your temp enough).WIN  WIN.

 

 

TWO HANDS BETTER THAN ONE.

Another somewhat underestimated SURVIVAL TIP is AMBIDEXTERITY.

In so many ways this ‘ single ‘ factor more than doubles WINTER survival chances…

in fact any SEASON.

 

The ability to use two+ weapons,… either hand to defend and/or counter strike,… instant replacement if one hand hurt,… can protect an innocent with one and tko attacker with other,… one hand free one hand weapon…etc etc etc…(examine the slight overdramatisation pic below for ideas…).

 

…ANCIENT LEGENDS AND HISTORY… AMBIDEXTROUS TO THE Nth DEGREE… photocredit/thanks:pinterest

 

and as a concept applied elsewhere…increase warmth through use of both/all limbs equally and at same time etc…inc. energy usage as a weight loss exercise inclusion…during such…get tired?…just change sides for a bit…

works on coordination, timing, balance and such factors…

similar to juggling in this example (click)…or

 

have a WARM DRINK and mow the lawn at the same time…

 

(just flick out the lil bits of grass sprayed about SHIRO says)…

the benefits are many though-

($$$Cost wise=quite a bit of time/practice…and extra training weapons too…cup and lawnmower perhaps also…).

 

 

ONE idea for ninja students, is to have a full nights training session using weaker limb only…

as if their main one was injured etc…

this DOUBLE UP CONCEPT open to suggestions in many LIFE areas-

sore/injured main hand…write with the other.

 

SHIRO, online playing a comp. game which involved some strategic button/click mashing, surprised other players by consistently getting higher scores/bonuses.

when queried on it…

revealed a SIMPLE SHIRO SECRET SURVIVAL GAMING TIP

 

SHIRO was using TWO MICE(mouses)…simple.

njoyed dat shiro did.GAME ON.

 

 

TIME TO SWISH OIL &
BRUSH MY TEETH TONGUE?

SHIRO’s INTEL on OIL SWISHING hints at a very long History (click).

The SURVIVAL TIP CONCEPT is also based on subtle effects.

Used as a natural ingredient mouth wash idea.

 

The OIL will clean out by washing action and leave a protective layer after.NICE.

 

Your particular taste and needs may also allow variety of choice.($$$Cost wise=small outlay per dose though save on mouthwash…)

Choose your flavor so to speak…with SHIRO for example…

he likes them ALL…being a CIGAR smoker…that makes perfect sense!

 

 

 

To complement SHIRO’s oily flowery fresh breathe the ART of TONGUE BRUSHING was introduced (click).

Was pleasantly surprised too when SHIRO found a site that taught much about this peculiar sense organ of ours (click).Another oft. forgotten SURVIVAL TIP on dental hygiene and good health.

 

BRUSH AWAY them germs.

($$$Cost wise=small outlay if any & lil extra bathroom time…)

 

 

HERBAL HAND, MOUTH & SOCKFULS TOO.

 

 

Further germ action and WINTER SURVIVAL TIP is to use our FOOD as a WEAPON in this WAR.

SHIRO’s SMART WEAPONS include the bounties of NATURE.

Their particular properties are LEGEND and ALL across the GLOBE of EARTH they can be found.A stack of variety that grow across ALL SEASONS, essential for good health and SURVIVAL…Many of the SPICES for example will aid in upping METABOLISM if/when required.

($$$Cost wise=small outlay, well worth the effort and most taste YUM too).

 

Many are easy to grow at home, most require basic garden approaches though some exotic varieties exist.Green-thumbers and children oft.enthusiastic in community GARDEN projects and the like. (click) (click)

 

 

SHIRO’s listing of his favorite stack of 9 WINTER SURVIVAL HERBS reflect his EURO.lineage and ASIATIC influence…

readily available in his locale, multi-use…food or medicine.

($$$Cost wise=small outlay, big health gain…).

  • HONEY-(click)-sweetener/wound protectant=dab on wound
  • GARLIC-(click)-flavor/smelly oral germ killer=hold peeled clove in mouth 1/2hr(…chew parsley after…)
  • ONION-(click)-flavor/cleanser=onion rings in socks under foot sole overnight
  • HORSERADISH-(click)-flavor/severe headache=poultice
  • TUMERIC-(click)-spice/pest deterrent=sprinkle powder around
  • ACV-(click)-salads/cleanser=soak sock in vinegar
  • GINGER-(click)-flavor/fresh breathe marvel
  • CHILLI-(click)-spice/winter warmer=add lil powder to hot chocolate
  • LEMON-(click)-flavor/winter warmer=add to mulled wine

 

 

 

HERBAL TONICS are well known for their rejuvenating properties

and there are many variations world-wide (click) (click)

A favourite WINTER SURVIVAL tonic combo of SHIRO’s would go like this…

  • 1/2 cup each garlic, onion, ginger-chopped
  • 1-2 large chili of own choice-chopped
  • 3-4 tablesp. each-grated horseradish, powder turmeric
  • 1 lemon-juiced
  • put all ingredients into med.jar,cover with apple cider vinegar,seal.
  • store away from light for 30 days.
  • strain and use…1 tablesp.per day.(tis hot=BE WARNED)

 

 

PEEKING THRU PINHOLES.

 

SURVIVAL CONCEPT=TIME TO FOCUS THRU VERY LIL HOLES.

Reading through many many INTEL REPORTS SHIRO oft.has had occasional issues with the fine print. Either magnifying reading glasses or PINHOLE PEEPERS do the trick.

Magnifiers enhance and enlarge whilst the PINHOLES focus-like a telescope (click).

 

Though taking a lil time to adjust to the vision presented the end result was good indeed.The PINHOLES actually ‘force’ you to FOCUS in some way. With just a lil experimenting the right choice can be made for particular books, plans, maps even online research.

Choice of enLARGE or FOcUS

($$$Cost wise=small/med outlay, large variety choice…see small things…).

SEE THE INCLINE…BED. photocredit/thanks:smulderstextiel

 

PHARAOH’s INCLINED…
TO INCLINE HIS BED.

BACK TO BED WE GO…

SURVIVAL CONCEPT: let gravity be thy HEALER aka slippery sloped soothing sleep.(click)

 

When we sleep tis about the only time we  can ‘heal‘.

 

So as to be applied to our WINTER SURVIVAL TIPS

any that can aid or quicken healing…could well be of use.By using the NATURAL FORCES of gravity and decompression to allow the circulatory system to free flow and continue to ‘work‘…whilst we SLEEP.

($$$Cost wise=small outlay…technically, just couple sized wood blocks will do…though fancy is avail…at a price.)

 

Another WI WIN.
