REMINDED ME OF A SCENE FROM THE MOVIE – “THE EDGE” WITH SIR ANTHONY HOPKINS AND ALEC BALDWIN. IN THE MOVIE, THESE MEN ARE STRANDED IN ALASKA WITH A KILLER BEAR ON THEIR HEELS.

ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO, MY LONGTIME FRIEND, JON HAAS, WHO IS A FITNESS TRAINER

WWW.WARRIORFITNESS.ORG

REMINDED ME OF A SCENE FROM THE MOVIE – “THE EDGE” WITH SIR ANTHONY HOPKINS AND ALEC BALDWIN. IN THE MOVIE, THESE MEN ARE STRANDED IN ALASKA WITH A KILLER BEAR ON THEIR HEELS. FINALLY, THEY’VE HAD ENOUGH OF RUNNING AND DECIDE TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE BEAR. HERE, THEY GET FOCUSED AROUND WHAT’S POSSIBLE – “WHAT ONE MAN CAN DO, ANOTHER CAN DO!” HERE IS THAT SCENE –

ANYWAY, IN OUR LIVES THERE ALWAYS COMES A TURNING POINT WHERE YOU DON’T KNOW IF YOU CAN DO SOMETHING DIFFICULT OR WHAT SEEMS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE. WHEN I USED TO WORK IN THE E.R. YOU HAD TO STAY FOCUSED ON WHAT IS THE NEXT THING TO DO. WHEN THINGS SEEM OVERWHELMING, FIGURE OUT THE NEXT STEP AND DO IT. AND, IF IT’S BEEN DONE, YOU CAN DO IT TOO.

PHYREKEEPER HIGHLIGHTS PART 1-800W

ONE OF THE REASONS THIS PUBLICATION IS LATE IS I TOOK A FEW DAYS TO CLEAN UP THE PHYRE DOJO, WHICH IS CURRENTLY OUR SUNROOM. MY SCHEDULE IS SO CRAZY THAT I WOULD TRY TO WORK ON THINGS BUT THEY GOT MOVED OVER HAPHAZARDLY. FINALLY, I JUST HAD TO CLEAR THE MAD SCIENTIST LABORATORY. NOW, I CAN WALK AROUND IT, SEE THE WORKTABLE, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY START HAVING PHYRES IN THE WOODSTOVE. WE HAVE OUR FIRST PHYRE OF THE SEASON A FEW DAYS AGO WHEN IT GOT REALLY CHILLY.

******************************

I WAS INVITED BACK AND WAS AT THE BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA CENTRAL JERSEY COUNCIL ROUNDTABLE MEETING. I WAS THERE TO LET ALL TROOPS AND PACKS KNOW THAT PHYRE DOJO IS AVAILABLE FOR FUNDRAISING DEMOS AND WORKSHOPS. GAVE SOME HANDOUTS AND RAFFLED OFF A (HD) HAND DRILL SET. PICTURES BELOW.

***********************

SPEAKING OF BSA, MY SON, JAKE, HAD HIS FIRST EVER MEETING AT OUR LOCAL TROOP. HE WAS NEVER A CUB AND HE IS NOW JOINING TO BE WITH HIS FRIENDS, GO CAMPING AND LIGHT PHYRES. I’LL PROBABLY BE DOING A FUNDRAISER FOR THEM AS WELL SOON. STAY TUNED.

***********************

I GOT AROUND TO HARVESTING SOME OF THE MANY VARIETIES THAT I’VE LET GROW IN OUR YARD. MORE BELOW.

I WILL BE DOING A DEMO-WORKSHOP FOR CUB SCOUT PACK 108 IN SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ AND AT BOWMAN’S HILL WILDFLOWER PRESERVE IN NEW HOPE, PA. SEE MORE BELOW.

I MENTIONED THAT I JUST HARVESTED PARTS OF MY PROPERTY.

ONE OF THE THINGS I DID WAS TAKE THE LEAFSTALKS FROM A

GIANT BURDOCK (ARCTIUM) IN MY DRIVEWAY. THIS IS SOMETHING I’VE NEVER DONE BEFORE.

I’M GOING TO SEE IF SOMETHING CAN BE DONE WITH THEM AFTER THEY DRY.

SINCE THIS IS THE PROVIDER SECTION OF THE PHYRE DOJO, I’M GOING TO PROVIDE YOU WITH SOME MORE PHYREKEEPING SKILLS SETS – SINCE THAT’S WHAT YOU’RE HERE FOR… IN THE HARVESTING VIDEO ABOVE, YOU’LL SEE ME GATHER SOME VERY THICK POKEWEED (Phytolacca) BASES. THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY TOO LARGE AND THICK FOR EVEN (BD) BOW DRILL SPINDLES. YOU’RE PROBABLY WONDERING WHAT I’M GOING TO DO WITH THOSE… WELL, I’LL SHOW YOU. SO, JUST LIKE A COOKING SHOW, I PUT THE “INGREDIENTS” IN THE OVEN (THEY’RE DRYING IN MY SHED,) AND THEN, I PULL OUT THE FINISHED PRODUCT FROM OUT OF ANOTHER OVEN. HERE’S A CLIP FROM THE PHYREHACKING SECTION OF THE HIDEN DENKI DENSHO OF:

THE POKEWEED (PS) PHYRE SAW!

PHYREHACKOFTHEMONTHORIG900

I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED TO WRITE. I REALLY LIKED ENGLISH AND THE SCIENCES GROWING UP.

IN THE PHYREPUNK – PHYREMOD SECTIONS OF THE HIDEN DENKI DENSHO SERIES I CREATED A TECHNIQUE – METHOD CALLED THE (DD) DAKKAR DRILL. DAKKAR, IF YOU DON’T KNOW, IS CAPTAIN NEMO’S (20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA) REAL NAME! PRINCE DAKKAR. THIS CAN BE FOUND IN JULE’S VERNE’S “MYSTERIOUS ISLAND.” ANYWAY, I DEVELOPED A BACKSTORY WHERE ONE OF HIS CREW LOST AN ARM IN THE FIGHT WITH THE GIANT SQUID. WHEN THEY GOT TO THE ISLAND THEY GAVE THE JOB OF PHYRESTARTING TO THIS CREWMEMBER. NEMO INVENTS A CONTRAPTION FOR HIS LOYAL ONE-ARMED CREW MEMBER TO PERFORM HIS DUTY.

IT IS ESSENTIALLY A BIPOLAR TYPE (PD) PUMP DRILL WITH AN ATTACHED LEVER FOR ONE HANDED USE.

Saturday, September 21st, 2013 Cub Scout Pack 108

I will be hanging with Pack 108 and their families for a late morning demo of all the Phryction PhyreKeeping methods from around the world – AKA – “The Primal 8 Basics.” Together, we’ll light their camp-phyre for the day and get some hands-on experience following the demo. Handouts, stickers and Phyre!

Saturday, January 25th, 2014  1pm-3pm
Bowman’s Hill WildFlower Preserve in New Hope, PA

“From Friendly Flowers to Friction Fire”

Native Plants and WildFlowers are great to enjoy in the warmer times of the year. Many of us are aware that many of them have benefits to humanity by also being edible as well as medicinal. But, what about the long winter months? What knowledge and experience can we acquire from standing skeletons? There is also a long forgotten utilitarian use – the science and art of Friction Firemaking. Obviously, the creation and control of Fire was necessary for our thriving across the globe. Join us for a two hour demonstration given by Joseph Lau of every known Friction Fire method from around the world with specimens that are found all around us.

Hands-on experience following demo and handouts.
