Primitive Technology: Wood Roof Hut Fanvideo

I built this wood roof hut in the forest using only primitive tools and materials. It should be pointed out that I do not live in the wild and that this is just a hobby. It should be obvious to most that this is not a survival shelter but an experiment in primitive building technology. ►►►SUBSCRIBE: https://goo.gl/IW11hb ----------------------------------------­------------------------------------- ►►►Patches & Merch: http://goo.gl/B6uyu2 ►LOST PLACES: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLPyDkYYqNkPYJPAvnPvx-qSP8k7iQpHZT ►RANDOM MISSION https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLPyDkYYqNkPYM2X5thk95PMK6YAgS2hrt ►#FragFritz https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLPyDkYYqNkPbmefqyfkvLZbgtg4hXa3Rz ►BUSHCRAFT https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLPyDkYYqNkPZU03rjGCx8y5RKQ3o8M0hZ ►BUSHCRAFT CAMP https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLPyDkYYqNkPaMUSfYg9FnGVMTY-rlzdHR ►BUSHCRAFT CAMP 2.0 https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLPyDkYYqNkPZVgkMgex1qEbLvG8mP-69H ►BUSHCRAFT FÜR ANFÄNGER - BASICS https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLPyDkYYqNkPb-RnEsaVx87wakZiFFqO7w ►Fritz am Limit https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLPyDkYYqNkPbX3XzcK0QqXoQ1XshxbWmU ►AIRSOFT https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLPyDkYYqNkPYTHZRv7MFqdDu80VJ8NU6O ----------------------------------------­------------------------------------- ►►►Hier findest du meine komplette Ausrüstung: http://www.endofthecomfortzone.com/ausruestung ►►► Hier findest du meinen Merch und Patches: https://goo.gl/kUyio9 Teil meiner Ausrüstung: ►Messer: http://amzn.to/1IZtk1l (*) ►Rucksack: http://amzn.to/1QlhLCT (*) ►Kamera: http://amzn.to/1auJu4a (*) ►Objektiv: http://amzn.to/1auJAsr (*) * Wenn du meinen Kanal unterstützen möchtest, würde ich mich freuen, wenn du über die Amazon Links bestellst.

The Northernmost Town on Earth (Svalbard in 4K)

Longyearbyen on Svalbard is the northernmost settlement with over 1000 residents I was nominated for a Webby! Please vote: http://bit.ly/VeWebby My trip to Norway was funded by Screen Australia, Film Victoria and Genepool Productions as part of a new project. More information soon. More info on Svalbard: http://wke.lt/w/s/yiYNC Music licensed from www.cuesongs.com "After Catalunya" Spotify page: https://play.spotify.com/artist/2JnQ2AxkaRjlGCNmfkHiJd iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/artist/emphemetry/id414183064 Captions: Come take a walk with me around Longyearbyen, the largest town on the Norwegian islands of Svalbard. Parts of it look familiar, but make no mistake, this place is different. At 78 degrees North, it lies just 800 miles or 1300 kilometres from the North Pole. And with over 2,000 permanent inhabitants it is the Northernmost real town on Earth. There are only 50km of road, including the small streets between houses, so people get around the island mainly on snowmobile. In fact there are more registered snowmobiles than residents. Anyone leaving town is required to travel with a gun and someone who knows how to use it because the islands are also home to polar bears. The average daytime high is below freezing for all but four months of the year, and from the end of October to mid-February the sun doesn’t rise at all. This is the long polar night. Living here is tough. This past December an avalanche in town destroyed 10 homes, which used to be here, killing two people. So how did this cold, remote, ice-covered archipelago come to be inhabited? The hills around town are rich in coal deposits that have been mined for over 100 years. The coal was transported to the port via a series of aerial tramways some of which remain today, though they are no longer operational. Coal is a reminder that Svalbard was not always an Arctic ice world. 360 million years ago it was actually in the tropics North of the equator. A swampy area, it was covered with the precursors to modern ferns, which were much larger than they are today, reaching 10-30 metres in height. This vegetation was then covered in mud and sand and submerged under the sea. Over time it turned into the coal deposits that in the 20th century brought miners from Norway, Russia, and the US. Most of the coal mines have now closed and the economy is gradually shifting towards tourism, education and research. Tourists take trips on snowmobiles and dog sleds. There is a university centre in Svalbard, which offers semester courses in biology, physics and geology. And up on the side of a mountain is the Svalbard Global seed vault… but that’s a story for another time. The locals tell me that interest in the region from different nations is increasing. As the globe warms and Arctic ice shrinks, trade routes are opening up across the North. And Svalbard is strategically placed between North America, Asia and Europe. One day in the future Svalbard may no longer be as cold or remote as it once was. But for now it is a reminder of how through our ingenuity people can live in the most inhospitable of places.

Iceland Is Growing New Forests for the First Time in 1,000 Years | Short Film Showcase

The landscape of Iceland has changed a lot in a thousand years. When the Vikings first arrived in the ninth century, the land was covered in 25 to 40 percent forest. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe ➡ Get More Short Film Showcase: http://bit.ly/ShortFilmShowcase About Short Film Showcase: The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors.

This rapid deforestation has resulted in massive soil erosion that puts the island at risk for desertification. Today, the Icelandic Forest Service has taken on the mammoth task of bringing back the woodlands. With the help of forestry societies and forest farmers, Iceland’s trees are slowly beginning to make a comeback. Watch this short film by Euforgen to learn more about how their efforts are working to benefit Iceland's economy and ecology through forestry.

Man Quits $80K Job to Work in Grocery Store Part Time - Minimalism

Yves quit his job even though he had it all: a big salary, health benefits and a pension plan. He sold his downtown condo, too. Why did he decide to drastically simplify his life? Because he was unhappy and unfulfilled. A couple of years ago, he went on a 10-day silent retreat and, after much soul-searching, realized that his job and his stressful lifestyle needed to go. Now, a year and a half later, he's living a minimalist lifestyle in a small bachelor apartment, riding his bike to work, and working 3 days a week at a grocery store. He has more time to spend with the people he loves, and a lot less stress. Does he regret his downshifting decision? Watch this video to find out! Thanks for watching!

Welcome to Gothic, Colorado—one of the coldest places in the United States. This ghost town has been abandoned since the 1920s, but there is at least one person who still calls it home. For more than 40 years, current resident billy barr has lived in a small cabin, recording data about the snowpack to pass the time. In this short film, Morgan Heim of Day’s Edge Productions profiles the legendary local who inadvertently provided scientists with a treasure trove of climate change data. Winner of the Film4Climate competition organized by the Connect4Climate Program of the World Bank (film4climate.net).
