Sawyer squeeze water filter (the one that came with 3 bags, but no attachment to hook up to a sink/5 gallon bucket), and an Inova microlight (red) to leave attached to the BOB - both bought from REI website. Also scored a new cheap tarp and some cheapo zipties from harbor freight last week - on a budget as a college student. Going to test the filter out in my tub to get the hang of it, and a review will come when it sees real action for my first MBO attempt with my BOB (in about 2 weeks).

Steelhead FAK+quikclot and a sawyer squeeze. I got the QK as a subscribe and save quarterly and paid 10.63 for 1 QK sport 25gr. Hard to pass that up IMO.

Got the 2013 version of the Sawyer Squeeze. Came with 1 bag instead of 3, but apparently the 1 bag is a new design that is supposed to fix the breaking problem the old bags had.

Probably a good place for my first post.

I got three complete sets of nearly new camo (shirts and trousers) along with two TruSpec ECW ACU Parka's. One of the Parka's was completely brand new. I also got a nearly new large ALICE pack with the frame.

The best part was it was all at a price I could never refuse, FREE! :D

Finally bowed to peer pressure and picked up a Bahco Laplander and a new G-Shock to replace my old Mudman thats coming up on 10 years old and beat up enough to deserve being retired.

Picked up a couple of Nite Eyes S-biners for my BOB and my son's BOB. He got a SlideLock #4 (75 lbs, I think) and I got a Stainless Steel #5 (125 lbs, I believe). No particular reason for the different styles. We were just looking at the weights.

Hubby also got us some glow in the dark rope for our bear bags, tarp tie-offs etc. The kid thinks it's cool and it's encouraging him to practice his knots, so we put it in his kit.

A few Cliff Coconut and Chocolate bars. We've been stuck with the same limited flavour choices forever around here!

See if the sell the clif crunch in your AO, those are good.

Cabelas actually had some 9mm on the shelf when I stopped to pick up my reloading book order. I got two boxes. That brings me up to just under 600 rounds now and I have 300 cases primered and ready to go when I find some powder and my boolet order comes in.

Picked up a new GI poncho, so I've got two in my BOB. One for me or the kids to wear while the other is being turned into a shelter. They're multi purpose but not for doing two things at once. ;) We can also use them as ground cloths in our new tarp tipi.

Also got another esbit pocket stove, this one for the boy's BOB. They're so tiny and light, and he can use it if we're under a campfire ban. (He's a got a bigger Coleman version but the esbit is much lighter.)

Within the last week, a Blastmatch firestarter and a neoprene cocoon for my UCO candle lantern.

Honestly, I think the cocoon is kind of unnecessary since I usually have it wrapped in a spare shirt, but I figured what the heck.
