Thermal imaging allows people, good or bad to see in complete darkness.
Both intensified cameras and IR illumination require some lighting in order to be effective. By contrast, thermal cameras detect the smallest changes in temperature between objects and turn them into a video image.
This is scary stuff, but did you know you can block this so you are invisible to the cameras? This works extremely well with the FLIR cameras everyone seems to have these days.
This method of blocking IR will hide your warm equipment and possessions too.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
