Default Wire Saw

One of the most useful items considering space and weight and really works.

Just for fun, and proof, I soaked the whistle in a glass of ice water for a few minutes and then just pulled it right out and unleashed what can only be described as a PAINFUL shrieking blast that had the dogs in the neighborhood howling... LOL

These whistles get the highest of marks in my book. Cost effective and absolutely great.

JD 5 out of 5 bank rating!

I need a manufacturer on this. I bought one, and it snapped FAST.

Who made yours, and what have you done with it?

Made by Highlander. Not the cheapest but one of the best. Can get them on Ebay. Never managed to break one.

Living in the Pacific Northwest, before the generator, we experienced several occasions where the power was out and I was working, so the gal was at home with those frilly, Yankee Candle offerings.

I come home and the place smelled like a potpourri production plant blew up in my house.

Now in the event I ever have to be in a situation where I needed both candle light, some limited heat and it was going to be a bit, I do not want to announce myself to every ghey Sasquatch and "You got a purty mouf" mountain man in the area.

Enter these hardcore canned candles from MPI Outdoors.

http://www.cutleryshoppe.com/browseproducts/MPI-Outdoors-Emergency-Candle.HTML

They are about $6-$8 if you can find them, but they are great. A little weighty, but you don't need to pack 10 of them either. The can is sealed with a basic, peanut can style pull tab with finger ring and inside they give you a dry package of "strike anywhere" matches.

I figured I would test one out, I bought a small box of them when I first found them, so here is what I am doing.

Here is the candle sitting on the grill and here is the temperature sensor on the lid. I am going to let the candle run for a couple of hours directly below the temp sensor and see what kind of heat the thing can generate given time.

I use the Echo-Sigma "get home bag" (GHB)
I haven't had to use the specific components in this bag, but the items in question I can vouch for (between a GF in the red cross and a family of military personnel they have used all the individual components at one time or another...)

Ok, but do you know the most effective way to use the items in the bag. I think that was 50% of op's intent of the thread.
