This Week I Learned to Find Water in the Forest

Go to for 15% off your order.
In this episode I learn to find water in the forest. An ancient bush craft technique, tapping birch trees can produce litres of drinkable hydration if you know how. Please only try this on trees that you own.

My name is Mike Boyd and I make videos documenting my process of learning stuff really fast. Subscribe for more upcoming videos and feel free to tell me what you'd like me to learn next in the comments.

  • Hey Mike Boyd! I wanted to give you a challenge that may be kind of cool to try. The Minecraft NOcdsr "Dream" has a running series called "Minecraft Manhunt" where he tries to speedrun and beat Minecraft while his friends try to stop him. It started with 1 hunter, then 2, then 3, then 4, and now its 5 hunters. In the early stages of the 5 hunter manhunt, Dream decides to tower up into the sky. The hunter Sapnap follows him, and as Dream destroys the furnaces he made, Sapnap jumps from his tower and hits Dream off. Dream is able to access a crafting table mid fall, crafts a boat, then uses the boat to break his fall. (Just watch the clip to see how insane this was: ) During the manhunt, Dream had only 1 shot at this, otherwise he would have died and the hunters would have won. A player called "rekrap2" had attempted to recreate the clutch, and while they weren't able to get the same lag as Dream (which allowed Dream a longer period to craft while falling), he was able to do it to some extent. Here is his video: My challenge to you is to recreate and perform Dream's boat clutch on Minecraft yourself, as fast as you can. Doing cool things and learning new skills as fast as possible is something your good at, right?
