One more suggestion and it won't pertain to everyone, only those living in the Western United States. Don't bother packing this, but if you come across Manzanita, grab a couple sticks of the dry dead stuff. When seasoned it is stupid light but burns hotter than any other wood. If you Google it it will say oak burns hotter, but this is a lie. They say they measure buy the cord, but the BTU is really measured by weight... I could get more detailed but trust me, it gets hot. I used to use a couple one inch diameter sticks to get fresh cut scrub oak burning. I thought I was going to melt my wood burning stove. If you can get a little burning, you can get just about anything going with it! Just be careful, it gets stupid hot, don't even think about putting it in your home fireplace unless you are use just a little!!!

Yeah, I know, terrorist.

But our boys are wearing them in the sandbox, and for good reason.

Available at most tactical sites and surplus stores, they average around $12.

Worth it. Warm when necessary, soak it and be cool in 90 degree weather.

Can be worn in a variety of ways, and uses are limited only by your imagination.

Swiss Army knives are great, but a cheap one will fold like toilet

paper. Get only Wenger or Victorinox, or a Buck combo of these.

Don't overlook the tweezers in these knives, I've NEVER found

anything better for removing a splinter.

Most good name brands of multi-tools are also very useful, and

I've yet to find an unsatisfactory Leatherman, Gerber, or

Victorinox Swiss-tool. But don't go cheap, pretty much anything

under 70$ will let you down.

The Leatherman crunch is the best all round multifunctional tool and will also service all your weapons.

A friend of mine found this sharpener at a chain saw shop. It has a carbide edge and works better than anything I've found. I sent two of them to my son when he was in Iraq and he still will not let it out of his sight. Cost was around $9.00 . Well worth it.
Quarter is for size comparison

A mini flashlight on your keychain, and one in your pack,

are better than a large flashlight in your hand...

To mix or stir food, pull the pot or pan from the fire,

adjust, with your eating implement, then put the

cooker back on the fire.

Eliminates the need to carry

additional kitchen equipment.

Here's one which works great.

Ignite an old car tire, it burns hot and bright.

Kicks off a lot of heat...
