    This does an excellent job of making it clear how to make a carrier for a bottle, but also how to make a gill net, or a dip net (though you'll need to figure out how to use a green sapling or branch to bend around and hold the dip net--which is not really a challenge to see...) or about any other net you might want. Glad I saw it! The Bow Backing was wonderful: will likely take that bow course later. Simple, effective, and as a freebie, so to speak, clues me in on making "hide glue" the easy way! Stacy Harris' section on cooking tough cuts to tenderness was great--but with my cooking being what it is (My leftovers are occasionally considered toxic waste), I'll let my wife handle this one! Slate Arrowhead--this was incredible. Yes, this demonstrates how to make an arrowhead out of slate, but it also would be applicable to a knife, or a spear point, or a scraper--just about anything that you might need where there has to be a sharp edge. This is great stuff, and the download on making a slate knife is magnificent! Tracks: The cast creation portion is great, but the second part (looking at tracks) is really fascinating. Again, loving this! Can hardly wait for tomorrow! Hank G. on cordage is great--suddenly, I'm having respect for those crazy thin polymer bags that seem to stack up. He makes it look easy making cordage with this stuff! When I get done with this course, I'm going to check out his course on knives--which is REALLY Hank's thing! Mandy's knot tutorial makes it all look SO simple! And it turns out great. Definitely a great addition to this tutorial--and if you have the paracord, practicing this can definitely make good use of your "shelter-at-home" time!
