  Short and late answer....

  A knife is the most important survival item...IF you are in the woods. Not so much antarctica or the desert, or on a lifeboat lost at sea.

  Nowadays, one could make an argument that the most important survival item is a cell phone.

Wilderness Survival / Re: Do any of you carry guns?

  As far as I know, nobody that was ever mugged, assaulted, or murdered were planning on it, or expecting it.

  Those Colorado folks just went to the theater to see a Batman movie, none of htem planned or expected to be shot up my a nutjob.

  If you carry, you carry always if you're smart. You don't try to guess or gamble when or where something bad will happen. You just go prepared and hope nothing ever happens.

   It's like epipens for people with deadly allergies. Just carry them. Carry them everywhere. Don't assume your smart enough to gamble with your life.

  Same principle.

Yellowyak, what was that disc from in it's original life?  It looks like the perfect size.

I believe a plow disc of some kind. 18" in diameter. Has the center hole welded up. It's a great size, thanks.

Did you see all the impulse deals when you ordered?   It took everything I had to resist blowing some big bucks.  But yeah that carrier was a great deal too.  Glad I got that.

Well I just couldn't help myself... I ordered one at 88 bucks and a carrier to haul it in. Great deal!

Unbeknownst to me, Heather ordered the carrier, too.....$16 ain't too bad of a price for the convenience of keeping the ash and black gunk out of the car trunk and off of everything else when we cook out at the state park.  I doubt that we could even make one for that price. :shrug:

I just checked the price on the table again....$86.48!   

Only 10 left......better hurry!

Fire! / Re: how do you light your punkwood?

For me no matter if it's a ferro rod match or lighter I always either scratch it up or carve shavings or feathers on the sides of punk wood to get it going

General Discussion / Re: What are some good wood options for walking stick?

  Thanks.

  There's lots of Ash in my area...the western mountains...but I don't recall seeing much hickory. I'll have to keep an eye out.

  I was kind of thinking that woods used for broomhandles and axe handles is ideal....but I really wasn't sure if it matters how mature the wood is. I'm not carving a stick out of a tree, I am making a stick out of a sapling, so I thought maybe some hard woods may not be good until reaching a certain maturity.

Well that one is a "WOW!"
