If you find your self stuck in the backcountry or you need to move a rock or tree this simple hack will allow you, through the power of leverage, to move a heavy object with nothing more than two logs and a rope. The logs you can find in the woods, for the rope we recommend the Synthetic Winch Rope.
I first discovered this ingenious flip-flop winch from a YouTube demonstration by Mors Kochanski, the Godfather of bushcraft. A search of flip-flop winches on YT will garner several clips demonstrating the power of using two logs and some rope. So why would I add my video to mix? Because it’s only theory until you put it into action by Doing the Stuff! Thanks for watching!
