Winter Breakdown

Winter is coming and if its like last year you need to be prepared to drive in it. Last year was declared coldest in many parts of the country. Many cities recorded record snow fall and set records for storm damage. Many drivers were not prepared and were stranded in bad weather. Here are some ideas on how to handle winter and breakdowns.
If you live in an area or plan on visiting an area that can have some bad winter weather you need to be prepared. About five million people were caught in bad winter weather last year. They were stranded and some did not have the proper equipment with them to be prepared for the cold. If you know you are going to travel in areas that have snow fall you need to make sure you have good tires. It may sound bad but you need to prepare for the worse especially if you are in an accident. An accident is stressful but worse if you are in sub zero temperatures and heavy snow fall.
It is smart to have your mechanic do a check list before the winter starts or if you are going on a trip where bad weather happens. Have them inspect your tires,battery, brake system and wind shield wipers and replace them is they are worn. You may want to invest in snow tires if you know the area has large amounts of snow fall. Make sure to check your antifreeze and keep you gas tank more then half full. If a storm hits it is important to have clear wind shields so make sure your defroster is working good.

Ginger as a medical herb

Ginger extract has long been used in traditional medical practices to reduce inflammation. And there is some evidence that ginger may help reduce pain from osteoarthritis. In a study of 261 people with Osteoarthritis of the knee, those who took a ginger extract twice daily had less pain and needed fewer pain killing medications than those who received placebo. And yet another study found that ginger was no better than ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) or placebo in reducing symptoms of Osteoarthritis. It may take several weeks to see any effect. A few preliminary studies suggest that ginger may lower cholesterol and help prevent blood from clotting. That can be helpful in treating heart disease, where blood vessels can become blocked and lead to heart attack or stroke. But more studies are needed to know whether ginger is safe or effective for heart disease. Laboratory studies have  found that some substances in ginger may kill cancer cells in test tubes. More research is needed to know if ginger would have the same results in humans.

Alder has dead, easy-to-break trunks

This is what you build up to. You can't light a log with a match, and you'll be running around all night if you have only kindling for your fire. The fuel can include logs, larger tree branches, broken-off pieces of tree stumps, driftwood, old lumber, and anything else that burns. I have even used dry buffalo dung. Not all woods are equal. Maple will produce twice as much heat as pine. However, pine will be easier to cut or otherwise collect. Alder has dead, easy-to-break trunks that burn well without much smoke or sparks, making it good for a cook fire. A smokier fire may be wanted, though, if rescuers are looking for you. With practice you will learn which woods work best for various purposes.Planning to have campfires? It may be tough to start one if everything is damp. Carry a fire starter or two, to make it easy. Pieces of cardboard soaked in candle wax work well, even when wet.
 Dried peat moss  can be used for insulation to turn a light jacket into a warm coat. Just stuff the jacket full without removing it. It can also be used as mattress material or toilet paper. Sleeping bags should not be stored in stuff sacks. This constant compression will eventually crush the insulation, making for less loft and therefore less warmth. Store bags unpacked on a shelf or in a large cloth bag. Cotton balls and materials like that make great fire starters.The Aurora Fire Starter is simply the best magnesium fire starter on the marked.

indigenous societies have always eaten bugs

You can eat most insects raw. The taste varies from one species to another. Insects such as beetles and grasshoppers that have a hard outer shell will have parasites. Make sure to boil them or cook before you try and eat them. There are different types of ants that store honey in their bodies,
giving them a sweet taste. Try mashing them up into a collection of insects into a paste. You can mix them with edible vegetation. Try cooking the ants to improve their taste. You can eat worms put then in water before eating this makes them a little better just swallow them whole.Snakes and reptiles are good also just need to cook them before you eat them. If you come accross a turtle you should not try and eat them. Look for dandelions they are nature's richest green vegetable source of beta carotene, from which Vitamin A is created, and the third richest source of
Vitamin A of all foods, after cod liver oil and beef liver. You can make a soup with the insects and dandelions.
