Re: Automobile Winter Survival Kit: Is it ready?

You know, I've got a "road emergency kit" that someone gave me about 15 years ago. I've kept it unopened in my trunk all that time, and I have no idea what's in it. I think it's your basic first aid, road flares, "HELP" flag, etc. I should open it and check it out. Besides that, I have two fleece b...

Re: Blastmatch dissapointment

I have never had a problem starting a fire with the Blastmatch. I have had some trouble with the LMF firesteel, but that is just due to aiming issues. The Blastmatch puts all the sparks in one place, whereas you have to aim the LMF. I usually use the cottonball+petroleum jelly with my LMF firesteel...

Re: MSR Whisperlite versus PocketRocket

Out of those two I would lean towards the Whisperlite Internationale, though I say that as it is my primary stove. It is heavier and it has more moving parts but it's also a cinch to keep clean and you have the option of scavenging fuel for it in a pinch. I like knowing that I could siphon some dies...
