fill a nalgene bottle with boiling water, seal it, wrap it in a shirt or something, and throw it into your bag...mmm warm feet... you might be able to do the same thing with rocks. Heat them up in a fire and then wrap them up. I seem to remember rocks being good at retaining heat and are available ...

Grilled cheese is best made with good dark pumpernickel and dilled Havarti. Scrambled egg sandwich: 2 eggs Dill Chives Salt Pepper Something butter-lik Bread (I prefer brown bread to white), 2 slices, toasted and spread with mayo or Miracle Whip. Crack two eggs into a bowl. Scramble them together wi...

These saws are nice, too:

I have a Gerber hatchet too, but someone borrowed it and thoughtfully rammed it into a nail, creating a lovely folded-over semicircular divot in the middle of the blade. I'll probably get an Estwing to replace it.

No argument from me. Front-half serrations just make a lot more sense than back-half serrations. All of one or the other is best, IMHO. The Boye knives cost less than the AG Russell, so I will more likely get one of them.

Towanda, good stuff. Dunno about availability in the PAW, but you could always build a makeshift one and chances are people will become more aware of such systems by coming and posting here lol. Thanks, Lone Gunman. I've been thinking about a solar hookup for the Incinolet. Not quite sure yet how i...

Thanks, guys. Mr.trooper , that AG Russell is a nice-looking knife. Are there any cutting test results for it available? The Boye knives seem to do pretty well. Granted, I don't expect to be cutting any Spectra, but I do use a mix of synthetic and sisal ropes for various purposes. I'm mostly looking...

Boye Cobalt Alloy Knives

Anybody have any experience with these? I'm looking for a folder I can take camping, but I also do a little rope work and I'd like something that deals well with both synthetic ropes and sisal. I've never sailed anything more complicated than a Sunfish. Half straight/half serrated is right out, but ...

Try putting a sheet of that rubbery, non-skid mesh shelf lining stuff between your sleeping bag and your Therm-a-Rest. I got a 5' roll at Big Lots for cheap, and it really keeps my bag in place.

I've been using the same Sierra Zip Stove for the last six years or so and it's been fine. The only other stove I have a lot of experience with are those two-burner Coleman-type propane stoves. Not terribly light or compact, but not a bad backup if you're at home and lose all power (open a window or...

As soon as I notice the nail is starting to grow in -- and I do mean at the first hint of any soreness at all, before the toenail really gets into the toe -- I wad up a tiny little piece of cotton ball and jam it between toenail and toe. The little cotton pellet only needs to be the size of a small ...

I'm not familiar with that folding woodstove. I've had a Sierra Zip Stove for six years and it has done me proud. One AA battery is more than enough for a week's camping, but I always bring either a spare battery or a spare rechargeable battery and solar charger.

Thanks, everyone! Marbles or ball bearings would make good zombie-tippers, too! They'd be easier to carry than a dust mop.

Greenthings and salivations!

I just joined the forum. I found this place during a Google search. Zombies are neither very fast nor very physically coordinated. If you tipped a zombie over, using something on a long stick like a dust mop, would the zombie lie there on it back like a turtle, wiggling is arms and legs, unable to r...
