Backpacking Skills and Equipment

In this video, I show how I use a machete both as a Chopping Tool and a Self Defense Weapon. Don’t bring a machete to a gun fight! This video is also a review of the Gerber Gator machete.

A machete is essentially a jungle survival tool. It can also be employed as a self defense weapon. The saw back features of the Gerber may help extend the use of this tool beyond the tropics. Because it is an inexpensive tool, I recommend that all preppers own at least on machete. The Gerber would be a great choice. It’s an excellent quality tool.

Since moving to Florida about 18 years ago, I have extensive experience with a machete. It’s a tool that is used quit a bit in South Florida to keep plants from getting out of control. Even though I have experience with a machete, and can employ it as a weapon, I am not a machete expert. Who is?

The various features of a machete will determine its function and ability to double as an improvised weapon. Although the machete can improvise as a weapon, it is vastly out shadowed in that role by a good sword. One tip, don’t bring a Machete to a gun fight.

Eagle Wing has been my friend for over 13 years. She also attended my Y2K Seminar and is a prepper. I met her in a Bible study in Palm Beach, Florida. She is a strong Christian and an experienced prepper. We are in North Carolina looking for more property. We are also backpacking and camping out.

We did not video tape much of our backpacking and camping trip due to the size and weight of the video camera. We also had our two little dogs, which needed to be carried on the rocky parts of the trail.
