Default Resource Materials

One of many things I enjoy is practicing primitive skills; things like making stone axes, throwing atlatl darts, flint knapping, hide tanning, etc. It has given me insight as to what is possible when you don't have modern conveniences and tools. While doing some research online, I found a couple of sites with a wealth of information along the same lines that might be useful for color description if nothing else. The two sites are:

http://www.lowtechmagazine.com/

http://www.notechmagazine.com/

I hope you find them useful.

I subscribe to those too. A few Youtube channels on primitive tech or bushcrafting.

A favorite free source of mine is Scribd.com.... There are hundreds of books with expired copyrights available or government manuals that never had one.

The 1900s bushcrafting and boy scout or girl scout books are gold.

I didn't think Scribd was free. Last I knew, it was $9/month.

I just finished a week at the Rocky Mountain Rendezvous.
Nothing is allowed to be seen that has a date after 1840.
TP and canvas tents abound. buckskins and such lots of tomahawk and knife.
front loaders and primitive bows.
I ran one back in 1993 and 1995. bunch of very old vets and now our kids run it.
Well fun for all and a lot of learning/teaching of primitive skills.

You can pay for it, which allows unlimited downloading.... Or you can upload for one download.

So I on ocaisson upload some one page game supplement I have written and download one book or manual.
