This quick wilderness survival skill video shows how to peel the bark off of a fallen Birch Bark Tree. The method could be applied to pretty much any type of tree that has a thick bark. Big slabs of tree bark like this are great for building an emergency survival shelter. The layers of bark do a great job at shedding water and keeping you dry!

Welcome to the Reality Survival Channel! On this survival channel I teach a full range of emergency Wilderness Survival Skills and Urban Survival Skills, as well as Primitive Survival Skills. My goal is to educate folks on real world survival tips and survival techniques that cover the gambit of emergency Wilderness Survival, Urban Survival, Primitive Survival, Bushcraft, Disaster Preparedness ( Prepping ) & more. I also do Outdoor Gear Reviews on Survival Kits, Survival Gear, Survival Knives, Guns, Bug Out Bag Gear & just about any kind of Every Day Carry (EDC) Gear & disaster preparedness or prepping gear. I am a prepper & also do some DIY & How to videos on prepping as well as teaching different Survival skills, bushcraft skills, & prepper or prepping skills to help you sort out what really works & what doesn’t. I learned wilderness survival skills when I was a Survival Evasion Resistance and Escape (SERE) Wilderness Survival Instructor for the USAF about 15 years ago (class 97-02). On the Reality Survival Channel you will typically see a mix of survival & prepping & gear review videos each week. I usually upload at least one survival skill video, one gear review video, one prepping video every week. Typically uploads happen on Wed, Sat & Sun mornings.
