    campin, cookin, survival tidbits

    No, don't believe I heard of that kind of fire lay. 4,000f degrees sounds a bit hot, - with hunters stew, I hope one would like the added thickening flavor of melted dutch oven! I'd like to see one in action. Didn't have any luck running "Swedish Alter Fire" at Google. Good ideas with string, shower curtain holders. Interesting to read some of my dad's old WWII Army Air Corp survival books. Quite a few ideas there, one being a monkey trap! HA. Being new here, is this board html active? Randy
  2. Great thread you got going on campin' ideas, Red Feather. Randy

    campin, cookin, survival tidbits

    When at Philmont.... I used a half dozen or so medium size safety pins to air dry socks/clothes on the backpack while hiking. Also use them as clothespins while in camp. **************** Empty film canister held homemade sewing kit. I carry along a full bobbin of black nylon thread. It's super strong. The first 4 days into Philmont last June, I had stitched about 5 items for myself and others, from a pant tear to backpack staps. Used a drop of Super Glue on the finished sewing knot. ***************** Earplugs,....for when tented next to snorers. ***************** When you're packing for backpacking, what does the item weight, how important is it, and how much will it compress? ***************** Smart Wool Expedition Socks. Smart Wool Expedition Socks. Smart Wool Expedition Socks, with liners. 80 miles with -no- blisters. ;^) ****************** Spatulate your dirty utensils so to save water during clean up. ****************** Camp Suds, the little green soap bottle. You can wash clothes, dishes, yourself and your dog with it. Haven't tried brushing my teeth tho. ****************** 8x mononcular. Small, lightweight. ****************** A whistle is good. ****************** When hiking with group, designate one to be a cameraman. Carry extra batteries/film for him. Have him shoot pictures till the cows come home. Fun to enjoy later at home for years to come. Have him use ultra small tripod with velcro strap so can attach camera to tree limb or chair. ****************** Lightweight foldable frisbee. ****************** Attach your rehydrator mouthpiece to a name badge retractable cord fixed on upper part of shirt. No fussing with having to unclip and clip mouthpiece. The retractable cord will hold it in place until thirsty again. ****************** Carry along ultra lightweight folding backpack chair with back support. Much better than the tripod chair. ****************** Extra boot laces. ****************** Habeneros hot sauce to jazz up food. Extremely hot, so a little goes a long way. (saves weight) ****************** Handkerchief is handy. ****************** Backpacker towel, ultra lightweight. Cut it in half, save more weight. ****************** If you gotta have morning coffee use crystals. Ultra lightweight. Or just quit while on the trail,......saves weight. ****************** Carry along a precount of aspirin, vitamin I in film cansiter. Well, bring many extras and hand them out to those who need them. ****************** Phew! Fingers need a rest. Randy ASM Troop 145
