The Wiccan Rede

Bide the Wiccan Laws we must In Perfect Love and Perfect Trust. Live and let live. Fairly take and fairly give. Cast the Circle thrice about To keep the evil spirits out. To bind the spell every time Let the spell be spake in rhyme. Soft of eye and light of touch, Speak little, listen much. Deosil go by the waxing moon, Chanting out the Witches' Rune. Widdershins go by the waning moon, Chanting out the baneful rune. When the Lady's moon is new, Kiss the hand to her, times two. When the moon rides at her peak, Then your heart's desire seek, Heed the North wind's mighty gale, Lock the door and drop the sail. When the wind comes from the South, Love will kiss thee on the mouth. When the wind blows from the West, Departed souls will have no rest. When the wind blows from the East, Expect the new and set the feast. Nine woods in the cauldron go, Burn them fast and burn them slow. Elder be the Lady's tree, Burn it not or cursed you'll be. When the Wheel begins to turn, Let the Beltane fires burn. When the Wheel has turned to Yule, Light the log and the Horned One rules. Heed ye Flower, Bush and Tree, By the Lady, blessed be. Where the rippling waters go, Cast a stone and truth you'll know. When ye have a true need, Hearken not to others' greed. With a fool no season spend, Lest ye be counted as his friend. Merry meet and merry part, Bright the cheeks and warm the heart. Mind the Threefold Law you should, Three times bad and three times good. When misfortune is enow, Wear the blue star on thy brow. True in Love ever be, Lest thy lover's false to thee. Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill: An ye harm none, do what ye will.

Lean and Light wilderness kit

I stumbled across this and wanted to share it Thanks Chris.

by Chris Kearney
(Geneva, OH, US)
Great posts by all I've read. I wanted to contribute as well with my mini-kit for ultra light and fast camping/survival. I'll try to be concise but thorough.

I've selected items based on the following criteria;

1) it must be packable
2) it must be light
3) it must be necessary
4) it must multi-task

Container - I use a Fox Outdoor MOLLE-compliant SAW ammo pouch. It hangs from a belt and at 4x8 inches, it's very portable.

Shelter - nylon poncho and a space blanket (signaling device, solar still).

Fire - Bic lighter, cotton ball, chapstick (lighter will last for months, and if it gets wet, blow on it, and it will fire up. Wax or petroleum coated cottonballs will help in muggy climates.

Water - I pack all my small items in a bandana (sling mud, filter) and drop them all inside a stainless steel water bottle. It can be heated over a fire to boil water. I also carry iodine tablets and taste neutralizer (although I hear there is a better all-in-one tablet now).

Food - heavy test fishing line and hooks (for fishing, snares, and emergency sutures) There is also room in the ammo pouch for a Mountain House single serving dehydrated meal and a candy bar.

Knife - 2 inches straight blade folder. No multitool; no matter how small or cool it looks in the store, I've never needed a nail file or nut driver in the wilderness.

Wire Saw - great for cutting small limbs for bedding or posts for an elevated platform. The finger rings make excellent "slips" for snares.

Light - I carry a penlight with a red lens. It maintains night vision but lets me find my essentials if an emergency happens in total darkness.

Notepad and pencil - paper burns well, make notes/maps when you find resources (water springs, fishing holes, edible plant patches), and it occupies time by writing your will.

Paracord - 20 feet of this stuff is a 1 ounce miracle worker for heavier traps and shelter building. Yes, you could braid your own cordage...but...why?
