Re: Current Idiots Guide to First Aid?

No great changes since your first learnin' (4 life saving steps) but I recommend you take the free route and use what is available online. (ie., http://www.au.af.mil/au/awc/awcgate/army/fm4_25x11.pdf ) Some local volunteer departments will give you a lot of current training just for volunteering a m...

Re: New Footwear Needed - EDC, "Assault" Shoes - HELP!

I should have added Danner. I have two pair: cold weather and desert. Or Asolo Hiking shoes. Also pricey, but good. Nonetheless, do you want to make a guess about where some are made? The IDF Paladiums are good for desert and dry quickly. Guess where most of them are made. The Patagonia Drifter, the...

Re: New Footwear Needed - EDC, "Assault" Shoes - HELP!

I would recommend a durable running shoe, although I have a good pair of Rockport shoes that have seen a few years of hard usage. Rockport, as an aside, is an American company based in Mass. with production being done in China and several SE Asian countries. The Berry Amendment would have little eff...

Football. -Not the one-hour game played over a 4.5 hour period with the giant men in lycra who cannot stay on the field for the entire game but must take a break every 90 seconds so that people can be reminded to buy beer and pick up trucks. -Not the one that the USA men won gold medals for in the O...

Re: Hi from Canada

I am new too but I will say hello. I will be watching the World Cup being played up in your part of this land mass. Our ladies play tomorrow night I believe.
Good luck to Canada.

Re: New Footwear Needed - EDC, "Assault" Shoes - HELP!

I am not certain about the "assault" category either, so hopefully Acid will specify if he is looking for "above-ankle," etc. What one person thinks is a pretty long walk can be quite different from another person. Additionally, there is the type of terrain being accessed. And durability. Footwear j...

The link will take you to a list of USA made shoes, w/ more links. I have appreciation for people that try to "buy local" but in the footwear category it is l...

Re: Show off your fire kit!

Like the fire boxes, especially with the shoe wax. It tends to catch a spark easily and it burns hot. Where can people find the waterproof boxes like Otter at a good price? Even on ebay they get costly. Has anyone purchased any of the Chinese knock-offs? Thanks

Re: Suggest My New ETool.

Great review of the wonder shovel. The older e-tools are abundant but people seem to think they are a rarity online.

Re: Very much a recomended read!

The Survival Chronicles were pretty good. I read all 4 books last week after loading them onto my Kindle. The first was free via Bookbub but I purchased 2-4 to see how the story ended. I found them interesting and because the main characters were quite young they will probably appeal to a fairly lar...

Re: Suggest My New ETool.

The original wooden handled US_issue entrenching tool serves a lot of purposes. It is great for gardening as well. I find one now and then at yard sales for a couple of bucks, then I sharpen the blade and repaint it.

I am looking for the same thing. I am looking for a slimmer pack that might be a bit longer? Maybe something that could b used to carry a rifle.
