comment How do I desalinate seawater?
Distillation doesn't work 100%, the steam also contains some salt... when I was young I grown crystals and once I got for 1 week away. There was a book near the saturated salt solution where the crystals have grown. When I returned from vacation, it was completely covered with salty coating with crystals. So it doesn't work 100%.

@RussellSteen, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sambucus_nigra doesn't say anything about its wood being poissonous. As for me, I consider it safe as for the whistle.

@RussellSteen, I mean sambucus nigra. There are only 2 species in our country, and sambucus nigra can be very easily distinguished and is the only common species. He used some oil on it, but it was just to make the wood more resistant.

Well, I had a look into my book (poissonous plants), and the bark is poissonous. However, as I said, the old Slavonians used it for making a whistles. Also look here: jonsbushcraft.com/elderwhistle.htm

I don't think Elderberry wood is poissonous, only the berries and gren parts. Also see my answer.

comment What things should I look for when buying a compass?
You should look for the possibility to arrest the magnetic needle - that compass would be more resistant to failures.
