Re: What did you today for your BOV/how did you prepare your

I'm going to go look for a BOV today, or at least, the vehicle that's going to get me from Vancouver to Haida Gwaii, with all my stuff. My budget is under 5K. It's gonna be fun though, got a test drive booked for this afternoon for this one: https://vancouver.craigslist.ca/pml/ctd/d/2003-chevrolet-a...

Re: Restoring and maintaining leather

Mink Oil is also good, I like it for replenishing old leather. Kiwi for boots, though I think the more modern Parade Gloss blend is inferior to the Kiwi Original. Never used Linseed Oil, Raw or Boiled, but given that it polymerises over time, if you can afford to let it set long enough, I think it'd...

Re: Choosing a Camouflage pattern

It depends what you are hiding from too. Animal vision is different to human vision.

Case in point would be something like Sticks n Limbs* or Predator, works a lot better for animal vision than it does for human vision.

Colour of solution might also be affected by the composition of the water used to dissolve them. I would suggest making a saturated solution and then diluting from the known volume of sat. solution, but in the field, this too is very variable and imprecise. But I know nothing of field use for Potass...
