So we've been over the Vaseline soaked cotton balls.

Since I'm straight, I have neither of those on hand.

Next best thing...

In their own little waterproof bag, they're cheap and effective, and Brucie at Walgreens isn't winking at me for going to the register with Vaseline...

Leave Brucie out of this! He's just a guy who likes lifting weights with his bros.

The showers are mostly optional.

Whatever you say niko!! lol

So im a newb here and am building my bob bag, or have been for a while. I came across this little pocket sized mobile phone solar charger recently as my kid bought one home so he could take it with him on trips to the beach and camping etc....the little thing is pretty awesome. Its reasonably priced and about the size of my old htc evo 4g cell phone. Its output is intended for mobile devices and can easily charge my handheld GPS. I have put my sons to the test and its a solid little charger, the only downside is it only puts out about 5 volts, which won't charge much other than small electronics.

This is more of a trick for your BIL or BOL. Some of you may know this, but I just figured it out a couple weeks ago. Thought I'd post for those that don't know it...

You know those $5 solar powered walkway lights at Lowes Hardware? Like these> light link




They have solar charged batteries in them (obviously)...




...but not so obviously (or stated on the packaging) they are AA. Same as what your transistor uses.




Each light only has one battery. So I bought 8. 4 for my house and I put 4 on the sunnyside of the deck at my cabin. If the SHTF, I'll have a fresh set of batteries for my transistor and a flashight every night. Providing the sun shines. During the last 'upgrade of my AR's' I sold my EOTech that used AA batteries. May try to find another one of those now lol.

This is another more of a DIY than a 'does it work'...

Most people say to pack a deck of cards in your BOB. And it's a pretty common item anyway.

So, a normal deck of cards, right?



Nope. Thought it may be a good idea to have a way to try to "hide-in-plain-sight" a few items. Not like you can carry around your Sentry firesafe in the PAW.



*Disclaimer*
Before anybody gets upset, that baggie is baby powder. One of my friends I sent the pic to yesterday is a doctor. I like making his head explode.

It's really easy to make. Get a deck of cards and take 6-7 cards out. Cut the rest along the of the back design. Stack the cut cards on one full card, clamp them down. Then 'paint' the inside of the edges of the fake deck with glue. I used Titebond wood glue (cut with a couple drops of water to make it 'paintable') and one of my kid's Crayola paint brushes. Set a heavy book on top of the deck and let it dry overnight. When it's dry, just use a rubber band to hold your remaining uncut cards on top. Looks just like a deck of cards in your junk drawer.

I just found the sticky tab on the app! I never knew this thread was here. I'll have to check my bag for something to test this weekend.

That card trick looks kind of fun to make too. I may give that a shot someday.

Estwing 14" hatchet. I bought one 40 years ago and it is still going strong. Beat up but strong. $30 at Sears.
