That's a bit of a tough one, in a coastal area you can boils sea water down for salt crystals. Inland there are certain plants that store salt in their root systems, by boiling the roots you can harvest salt crystals. I've heard in passing about salt collecting on bank stones around certain types of streams but don't know much about that side.

Coastal salt warning. It will hold hat ever contaminants are in the water already and concentrate them as you distill off the water. I know i have made salt from sea water, it was a nasty brown black from pollutants.

Thats great if you are on the coast! But if your inland in an inch situation you are screwed, not like you are going to put 200 pounds of water softener salt in your inch/bob! I've known the several possible ways of obtaing salt prior to my post. I was just curious to see how many actually know how to get it! Best easiest way i for me to get salt is by cutting about 6in long as thick as your thumb hickory tree sticks boiling them in water until all of the water has evaporated, what you get is basically salt. Its brownish black taste like salt but also has its own taste. Try it and see what you think!

Sea Water – Sea water can be diluted with plenty of fresh water to get the salt your body needs. (never drink pure sea water, doing so can be dangerous to your kidneys.)

Plants – In America you can get salt from the root of a hickory tree. You can boil the roots until it evaporates and salt crystals are left.

Foods that naturally have salt – Seafood, carrots, beets, poultry and most animals.

Salt Licks – A salt lick is a salt deposit that animals lick to get there intake of salt. You can also find them in farming areas set out for cattle.

thanks Awake

 

boil roots of a hickory tree, well I so glad it easy as that I was getting worried

it was going to be difficult LOL

 

hey were i am a hickory tree root is easier to come by than some seafood.

on the serious side we should all be aware as to the salt content of our food stock. Most of the time we will not need salt. I do have potassium and magnesium stocked up as they are hard to supplement via food

hickory roots have higher concentration of salt than the branches do, true! but in a survival situation im not gonna waste vital calories/energy getting to the roots! enough salt can be obtained through the branches withought wasting energy! and of course your food suplies and meat contain salt! also boiling bones of an animal to make a broth has good amount of salt.

    • did you get the ruger or the cz for the trip?
    • Thanks Wally! I should have added, that no matter how hard I try,I continue being a poop magnet in life. Im going to get myself, some nice T shirts that read, “ Go ahead! poke the bear!” Or, “Of course, I’m an (insert favorite expletive here), I’ve been married longer than 40 years, my wife already let’s me know that!” I do think she would beat me severely were I to wear one of those!
    • what an adventure i am glad you made it back TP safe and sound...
    • So, we went out to the Midwest to see the son and his family. Trip out was uneventful, trip back was “interesting”.Hurricane Force north winds, driving snow and ice, and several idiots with vehicle keys that had no business operating any motor vehicle. Gangs of fun! No, seriously, it was the pits. Learned a lot, about our winter driving preps that we put into the vehicle for “just in case”scenarios like the trip coming home. No, we didn’t get stuck, or have to be rescued, we were merely inconvenienced as opposed to caught with our knickers down and twisted in knots. So, we are fanatical about never getting below half a tank, and that saved our bacon. We managed to get one of the last hotel rooms, in a nice small town, in a decent hotel, because we gassed up, upon arrival in town, before we did anything. We learned I-70 was closed and would remain so for about two nights. Well, in the a.m., it was opened for a very short window, and while others were in line at the gas (petrol for the Canuck) station, we and five FedEx tractor-trailer rigs hit the road. About 90minutes later, we were back down to 60mph sustained winds, with gusts going higher, and the folks behind us, got stuck for another night.  Of course, we had plenty  of TP, wet wipes, bags, water and food just in case, SUVs come in handy for hauling. If we had to be out in that crap we would have perished. Glad it wasn’t a century or longer ago!  So, while visiting with the family, we went out to dinner in the adjacent large metro area they live close to. I of course was legally carrying concealed, as was my bride, as we were leaving dinner, a few BLM knuckle-Haids, were trying to intimidate folks as a prelude to their strong arm robbery main goals. One of them, looked at me and said, accusing me of Oedipal relations with my mother, “why don’ you give me yer money?” My reply was 8ndeed polite. “Because, I don’t have to give you anything at all.” I calmly replied. His response was “interesting”, “ I’m goin’ to f*** you up!” My response was still polite, “No, you aren’t, and we’ve got nothing worth you and your associates dying for.” I looked him 8n the eye, and was prepared to draw and shoot him, until one of his associates said, “Dude! He be strapped. He be lookin’ to shoot a brutha! “ After be8ng called a few more invectives, which were neither original nor hurtful, nor threatening, (my wife WAS laughing), they jogged off.  Made me realize that my Glock 26 NEEDS a BUG buddy in my off side pocket, so I can still be “old man”polite and have my hand wrapped around a nice J frame equivalent. It dawned on me, that as I am getting older, still early 60’s and not feeling “old”, some jackass might think I’m an easy target. I would like to be grey man, and still be ready to go all Ninja-Pops on some Richard-head if needed. So, I’m now shopping for a new “friend” in earnest. I never “thought” I could be construed as an easy mark, even now. Huh! Learned something.  Oh, I did have my hickory cane with me, so, that item might have chummed him in, since he wasn’t an obvious intellectual standout. That was unintentional on my part.(really)  Have to have better wits about me from now on.
    • ....so the barrel is longer by a bit....but the slide and frame aren't? So you can just install the "evil" original barrel?
