(TacticalNews.com) – Rocks can be found everywhere, and have been used since the dawn of man for survival. In fact, an argument could be made that rocks are the most versatile survival tool there is. Aside from the obvious hunting and self-defense uses of rocks, there are other ways to use what many people see as useless objects. Just watch as IHatchet Jack starts a fire with rocks.
Food and water are essential when you’re trying to survive. Thankfully, rocks have you covered. No, that doesn’t mean you’ll be eating rocks. What it does mean, however, is that rocks can be used to help cook food and boil water.
To cook food, you first need to dig a pit and line it with rocks. Once you’ve done that, start a fire, which, as we saw in the video, can also be done with rocks. When the fire dies down, put your food in the pit and bury it. The result will be excellent moist meat or fish.
Boiling water is just as simple and can be done in any container, from a plastic bottle to a tree stump. However, it’s going to take a lot of rocks. You’re going to want to heat your rocks and place them in the water. Eventually, the water will boil and become purified.
However, you need to be aware that a rock with a small amount of water inside of it can explode when heated. For that reason, make sure all of your rocks are completely dry before adding them to a fire.
Rocks are everywhere and can even shelter us from strong winds. Check out this alternative resource that can prove extremely useful in a survival situation, and be sure to add it to your supplies.
