Video reblogged from Midwest Bushcraft with 9 notes

Common or Broadleaf plantain (Plantago major).  Is edible, and has more iron than spinach.  I use plantain for it antiseptic properties more than anything.  Once while being far to laissez faire about safety I buried a hatchet in my left knee before a program.  I stuffed the wound full of chewed plantain leaves then wrapped my bandanna snugly ’round my leg and did the program.  Four hours later I was in the ER getting 7 stitches.  When the doctor poured peroxide on the wound it did not bubble at all.  Nature thinks of everything…

After a 10 years, countless Boundary Waters trips, 1,700 miles down the Mississippi river, canoeing on the Missouri, and hiking all over Minnesota and Wisconsin it is time to retire my Merrell sandals.  Thanks for the memories.

These look like a great solution for organizing your packs.  I am thinking a Home Depot run is in my future.

I recently discovered your blog via your other site, while searching google to see if anybody else had rappelled using their GR1 as a low-pro rope bag.
I’m really digging your tumblr. Thought I might contribute these—not sure if you’ve seen them. They come in sets of three, one of each size—all are 1000D nylon, zippered, with grommeted hangtabs and mesh screens and they cost less than $7 at the local Home Depot. They work great for organizing and EDC, and I use the large one for camp cookware (dries through the mesh).
I should point out that I have absolutely no association whatsoever with Husky or The Home Despot.
Submitted by Eric, thanks!
