Link farm

Been doing some primitive skills reading lately so I thought I'd share.

http://paleotool.wordpress.com/ - A well written blog by the guy who taught me how to make ghillie shoes. Lots about gypsy caravans, shoes and just general neat stuff.

Two interesting sites I found from his blog:
http://www.cd3wd.com/cd3wd_40/cd3wd/index.htm - A collection of articles on how to do almost anything. Seriously, webpage design to nut oil extraction to livestock management. You name it, it's probably there.
http://trackerofplants.com/ - A blog by a lady in Oregon who does a lot of gathering

http://www.primitiveways.com/fire_materials.html - Woods to use for friction fires in the bay area. I managed to get smoke with a hand drill from buckeye on buckeye last weekend. It's an impressive wood. I got a little closer with buckeye on saguaro, but that'd be hard to find without a long drive.
